Cottage for sale on Gull Lake, Gravenhurst.
Dreaming of escaping from the office to your Muskoka Retreat? Not interested in a long drive from the city or hiking through the bush, but do want an upscale Muskoka experience? This cottage is so perfectly positioned for fun and games.
Gull Lake is beautiful, with rock outcroppings and classic Muskoka pine and style. It joins Silver Lake, so you have many miles of pristine boating to enjoy. See this link for more on Gull/Silver Lakes.
The view from the cottage is spectacular and the trip to the dock is a cinch. The cottage is in town. That means high speed internet (hard to get in remote areas), walking to dinner, enjoying Music on the Barge on Sunday nights, boating (or walking) for groceries and ice cream. This cottage is not for those seeking a wilderness experience. It is for upscale urban couples, with or without children who crave an easy breezy getaway.

We were out on Gull Lake today. The early heat wave blown away by crisp north westerlies. Thanks to Dave and Sandra who have spent many happy years on Gull Lake; now selling their Gull Lake home.
I had no idea that there was anywhere near this much boating on scenic Gull Lake. Heading south east takes you to a cut, through which you discover the equally beautiful Silver Lake. There are miles and miles of open water as well as small coves and granite rock faces. Perfect for power-boat cruises as well as kayaks and canoes.
Some of the waters from Kahshe Lake run to Silver Lake, then to Gull Lake and then through the Hoc Roc river into Lake Muskoka.
Gull Lake has lots of space for water sports of all types, or just for those big views.
We saw so many gorgeous rock faces dropping straight into blue water, and made mental notes of where to return.
There are cottages dotted up and down Gull and Silver Lakes. We heard many stories of the history of some of these cottages and Gull Lake itself. One is the story of Dead Horse Island; we wonder if you know this story…
Cottagers have been enjoying Gull Lake since the 1800’s.
