This cottage property is now sold. Its new family is looking forward to fishing and wakeboarding; not necessarily in that order, depending on who you ask. The new cottage buyers asked about lake regattas and other events – they are in luck here with the very active Sparrow Lake Association.
They have already met some of the neighbors even though they won’t be moving in for about a month!
Looking for a beautiful place that is easy to embrace? Level lot, easy drive from the GTA, fronting on the Severn River and literally a stone`s throw from Sparrow Lake, if you have a decent arm.
Priced at $550,000.00, this four bedroom, four bathroom beauty is poised to host large parties, large families and to be the backdrop for fabulous cottage memories. You will want to live in the Muskoka Room, but there is so much more. So many choices of venues – great room, fabulous dining room table, living room, spacious kitchen. There is a waterside deck and dock with a covered boat port. Oversize bedrooms invite pajama parties for the young and the young at heart. Located on a municipal, year `round road, make this cottage your own, or live here all year long. There’s a brand new septic system, and the place has been immaculately maintained.
Located on the Severn River, two cottages from Sparrow Lake, this property gives you boating access anywhere from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay. Minutes to Lake Couchiching and Lake Simcoe, you can also head in the other direction and be in Georgian Bay in less than a day.
This is an excellent way to start, or continue cottaging in Muskoka. There is simply no other property in all of Muskoka that comes close in terms of value for money.
If you search MLS for a cottage and single-slip boathouse in Muskoka, you’ll discover prices range from $300,000 to well over $3,000,000. Of the properties available in the $300k range, this is the only one that is: not water access only, not on a river and not a tear down. This property is on Sparrow Lake, the closest of Muskoka’s lakes to Toronto, has south exposure, a single-slip wet boathouse with a sundeck on top AND a newly built cottage.
Sparrow Lake connects via the Trent-Severn Waterway from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay. The lake’s water, due to this waterway, is constantly flushed – lake data here. Boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing and just enjoying the water are all fabulous. The views on Sparrow are wonderful.
Once you become a Sparrow Lake cottager, one of the best activities for the many visitors you’ll have is to take them on an afternoon boat ride west, past some of the most beautiful rock and pine shores to Swift Rapids. The appeal after the gorgeous boat ride is the lock itself; the largest in the entire Trent-Severn system – looking down as boats enter the lock is a real crowd pleaser!
Joining the Sparrow Lake Association is a must. In addition to helping with the great work of the association, joining will quickly get you into the swing with a picnic, regatta and a great way to meet your fellow cottagers.
We sold a wonderful, almost 3 acre building lot on Sparrow Lake’s Deep Bay just a couple of days ago. This lot has almost 300 ft of waterfront, and Deep Bay is a beautiful part of Sparrow Lake.
When I was a kid, Deep Bay was a fish sanctuary. We would get a close as you could to the entrance and figure the bay was so thick with fish that they would be spilling out and onto our baits. Never really caught anything much that way though.
The new owners are planning to build in the next few years.
We have quite a few fractional listings on Sparrow Lake, both at the Cottages at Port Stanton and at Tory’s Landing. We just sold a beautiful, rugged, Muskoka building lot on Deep Bay, and a cottage on McLean Bay.
Today we toured a wonderful private cottage on Sparrow Lake that we hope to list soon. On the way it was apparent that it was a great day on Sparrow and at Tory’s Landing as we passed the resort by boat.
Cottage owners like to relax on the docks at Tory’s Landing.
