Our stay at this Olde Muskoka cottage was wonderful. If you are comfortable with a water access cottage you will love it. Swimming and dock sitting great for swimmers, canoeing and sailing are available, and the lake is beautiful. Fresh clear water to swim in , chairs on the point to enjoy the sunrise. Comfortable beds, a cosy cabin and a sunny kitchen where we enjoyed our meals .
The cottage has the best collection of Board Games I have ever seen.
The fireplace works well for those chilly evenings.

Spending a week at Shaw cottage was a real treat! The main cottage is very cozy, spacious, and comfortable. The kitchen is roomy and well equipped, with a large window providing a view out onto the lake. We enjoyed sailing, canoeing, and spending time on the dock. It was a delight to find such a well maintained cottage steeped in history, on Lake Muskoka. Our stay at the cottage was a memorable experience and we learned a lot about cottage life on Shaw Island while connecting with the history of the area by visiting Port Carling with its Museum and active boatworks.
