About the cottage
Morrison Lake is a warm clean lake located in the Muskoka region and is only an hour and forty five minutes north of Toronto.  The lake is located above the Severn waterway and below Lake Muskoka, the closest town is Gravenhurst.  The cottage, called Time Away, is on a private lot on Morrison Lake, with 110 feet of lakefront.  This is a perfect place for a relaxing summer vacation.  You can drive right up to the cottage, great for unpacking and packing the car.  The property is level from the road to the cottage then has a gradual slope to the lake.
This classic, cedar built, Muskoka summer cottage has three bedrooms and is about 850 square feet with the porch.  Two bedrooms have queen beds, and the third has three single beds (a bunk bed and a single bed).  All the beds are new and give a great nights rest.  The rooms have portable electric heaters and there is an airtight wood stove, if the nights become cool.  Lots of split seasoned wood is available.  The inside of the cottage is all tongue and groove cedar wood which gives it a warm welcoming atmosphere.  The cedar ceilings are vaulted and have beams. The floors are made of pine strip wood.  There is a stereo with big speakers, CD player, VCR, DVD player, colour 27” TV, a Wii gaming system with many games, and satellite system (Bell ExpressVu) with lots of channels.  There is a portable large speaker with a microphone and aux in/Bluetooth connections.  Two comfy couches and an arm chair face each other and the entertainment system.  In the closet are cards and board games, there is a dart board on the porch.  The porch (Muskoka room) is screened in, has four chairs facing the lake, and a spare beer/pop fridge.  Cell phone reception is excellent with 5 bars.  The small kitchen has a new oven and fridge, all the dishes, cutlery and utensils, pots and pans, microwave, blender, toaster and a coffee maker (with filters and coffee).  The lake water from the tap is fine for washing and boiling.  There is a water dispenser for a five gallon water jug in the kitchen.  Use the jug water for drinking, ice cubes, or coffee.  We recommend bringing a jug of water or buying one from the grocery store.  Some people prefer bottled water which you can bring with you.  Most of the spices and condiments are up there at the cottage.  The dining room table has four chairs; when the leaf folds out, up to eight can sit at the table.  There is a Weber Genesis propane BBQ and spare propane tanks on the deck.  Outside there are two picnic tables, choose sun or shade.  The washroom is three piece; toilet, sink, and stand up shower.  The property has a new septic system and gravel driveway.
There is a basketball net set up in the driveway and a trampoline (use at your own risk, one child at a time, jump only in the middle, no flips, adult supervision always required).  Also included with the cottage are life jackets two adult kayaks and three kid kayaks.  The large dock with Muskoka chairs is a great area to enjoy and spend the day.  The lakefront offers a child friendly sandy beach that starts out shallow and becomes deeper as you wade out.  The lake is safe for swimming with the water being chest high farther from the dock.   A kids swim raft is farther out from the dock and is great for jumping off of.  There are no problems with zebra mussels, leaches or weeds around the dock.  We have left some lily pads for crayfish and frog habitat, the way it has always been.  Down by the lake are children’s sand toys and pool noodles.  There is also a hammock, between two big trees for reading or afternoon naps. Down by the lake is an outdoor fire pit, firewood, and chairs on a dry sandy area.  The dry sand beach area is a favorite for kids and sandcastles.  Try a game of boccie ball or horse shoes, it is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

Additional Information


 



The cottage will be clean when you arrive and we ask that it is left clean at the end of your stay for the next guests.  If you wish we can arrange for a cleaning person to come at the end of your stay.  The cottage is a fully furnished place with most things you will need already there.  We provide the pillows and bed spreads but ask that you bring up your own sheets, beach and washroom towels.



 



We have guests arrive on Sunday any time after one O'clock and stay until Saturday afternoon, with three O’clock being the latest check out.  We always want to avoid any overlap with one family leaving and another arriving.  We usually stop by the property on Saturday evening or Sunday morning, to do maintenance on the cottage and also look after the property.  It is $1500 a week for the cottage in high season July and August; $1000 for a week low season in June or  September.  The rental cheque is typically sent two weeks before your holiday, then cashed when received.  Please date the cheque when it is sent.  The lock box code, for the cottage key will be sent after receiving the rental cheque.  We have directions to the cottage, with the address, which we can send as an attachment.

 

Owner Cancellation Policy

We also ask for a security deposit of $1000, post dated to the first day of your holiday.  This cheque would be for damages, unexpected additional cleaning prior to the next guests arriving, or extra people at the cottage that were not agreed to.  After your stay, if there were no problems, the cheque will be returned to your home address.  This security cheque can be sent at booking and confirms your holiday.  Address: Martin Rombout, 92 Lime Drive, Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, L4L 5P4
