Property of the Month: October 2023



Nestled in the heart of the Muskoka region, the Boutique Muskoka Lakehouse and Cabin offers a captivating retreat for those seeking a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This stunning property is a true gem, situated on the tranquil shores of Fox Lake, just a short drive away from Toronto, making it an easily accessible getaway destination.


The Boutique Muskoka Lakehouse and Cabin is a testament to the natural beauty that Ontario's Muskoka region is renowned for. Surrounded by lush forests, pristine lakes, and the stunning Canadian wilderness, this property embodies the essence of rustic elegance.


The main attraction of this property is the lakehouse, which is designed to provide guests with a luxurious and comfortable stay. With a charming exterior that exudes rustic charm, the lakehouse opens up to a spacious and tastefully decorated interior. Large windows throughout the house frame breathtaking views of Fox Lake, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the serene beauty of the surrounding nature.


The interior of the lakehouse is thoughtfully designed with modern amenities and cozy furnishings. The open-concept living area features a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area with ample seating, and a comfortable lounge with a fireplace – perfect for cozy evenings by the fire after a day of outdoor adventures. The lakehouse can comfortably accommodate a group of friends or a family, with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms to ensure everyone's comfort.


One of the standout features of this property is its private dock on Fox Lake. The dock provides direct access to the lake, inviting guests to enjoy a variety of water-based activities. Whether it's swimming in the clear waters, canoeing, kayaking, or simply basking in the sun on the dock, there are plenty of opportunities to unwind and connect with nature.


Additionally, the Boutique Muskoka Lakehouse and Cabin offers a separate cabin, providing additional accommodation or a private retreat for guests. This cabin is equally well-appointed and enjoys its own share of breathtaking views.

The Cabin:

The Cabin is one of the most special spots at The Good Fox. Located on the lushly wooded west side of property, and set back about 40 feet from the Lakehouse, The Cabin makes for an escape that is secluded while still being part of the mix. With all the nostalgia of a Muskoka bunkie, without any of the "roughing it", the cabin offers vaulted white timber ceilings, King size bed, premium bedding, gas fireplace, sitting area with a full size sofa, smart TV, mini fridge, espresso maker, kettle, and a full 3 piece bathroom with dedicated and on demand hot water. Morning coffees or the evening's sun kissed sky are best enjoyed from The Cabin's private front porch with great views.




The Grounds

The Good Fox Lakehouse and Cabin are situated on 1.26 acres and enjoys lush and private grounds. With 200 feet of southwest facing shoreline, you will have lots of space and sun to enjoy the waterfront, the large multi-tiered dock, and lakeside patio. The dock offers six Muskoka chairs in bright and sunny yellow. These yellow chairs allow for some quintessential lakeside lounging and really pop against the Muskoka backdrop in memories you capture down at the dock. The watercraft rack is conveniently located near the water and is equipped with two stand up paddle boards, seven kayaks (six adult size and one youth size), and a broad assortment of floaties and tubes. Life jackets for toddlers to adults are provided in various sizes and stored for easy access in the garage. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub under the gazebo and bistro twinkle lights in any season. The bonfire area, set on Muskoka stone, has six large Muskoka chairs in matte black and is a great spot for s'mores! Two open grassy greenspaces are the perfect spot for afternoon lawn games (Bocce, washers, ladder ball, and cornhole sets all available), to toss a ball around, picnic, or catch some midday sun. The screened in Muskoka Room offers lots of comfortable seating, a cool and shaded reprieve, or a getaway from nighttime mosquitos. The porch running the length of the cottage is the perfect spot to lounge around and pass a Muskoka afternoon.


*Please note: the watercraft and dock won't be available from November-May. Based on snow and ice conditions, there may be restricted/limited access to the waterfront.


We have a gardening/lawn/snow maintenance crew that could arrive at some point during your stay to quickly and diligently work on the grounds to keep it looking great while you enjoy your time at The Good Fox.
