The space
This 4 bedroom lakeside cottage is the ultimate getaway from the city all year round. Enjoy 130+ feet of child-friendly shallow sandy beachfront for swimming out to the floating swim platform. Located on a quiet bay, launch your boat from your private boat launch and dock it in your private slip for those early morning and all-day fishing trips where you can catch trophy size pickerel, bass and northern pike.

A washer and dryer makes cottage-life easy and a glazed-in Muskoka room gives you the perfect view of the lake for breakfast or hanging out all day.

Rainy days or work obligations are no issue. Stay connected with free wifi. Watch movies on the flatscreen TV streamed from Netflix.

There is a propane BBQ available for your use. No need to bring propane! Loads of firewood for late-night beach bonfires (weather permitting) is provided.

Only a short 35 minute drive from town with grocery, beer, and liquor stores. Tons of hiking, biking, and snowmobile trails in the area.

With limited properties, Dog Lake is a highly sough-after location. The following is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

"Dog Lake is a lake in northwestern Ontario, Canada which drains south through the Kaministiquia River to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior. It was on the voyageur route to western Canada. Its name comes from a large aboriginal effigy of a dog on a nearby hill. The lake is primarily fed by Dog River and seasonal melting of the snow. It includes Silver Falls Provincial Park and it is a back-up drinking water supply for the City of Thunder Bay. Development of new summer homes (locally referred to as "Camps") is not permitted. As such, properties on Dog Lake are in high demand when available and the body of water has little boat traffic unlike lakes in Southern Ontario."

Whether you want to hike, swim, read or fish all day, "Rancho Relaxo on Dog Lake” is where you want to be!
