Listed: Live Large at this Spectacular Lake of Bays Lodge

Hilltop Crescent

Luxury, privacy, and coziness combine at this newly-listed lodge on the Muskoka waterfront. If cavernous great rooms and rustic details pique your fancy, 1041 Hilltop Crescent is calling you home.

Looking out over 930 feet of panoramic Lake of Bays shoreline, this custom log estate stands on 56 acres of lush cottage country land. The home, newly-listed for $6,995,000, is magnificent, but not at the expense of warmth or comfort; both attributes emanate from the abode’s cabin-like walls.

Inside, custom wood carvings and granite details serve as a consistent reminder that you are, indeed, in the heart of nature. The cathedral ceilings in the Great Room, alongside a stone hearth, a screened Muskoka room, and countless windows that welcome the outdoors in only continue the narrative of your existence within a wooded escape.

Upping the ante in the lodge-like home are multiple spiral staircases, a main-floor master suite with a private sitting room, walk-out screen porch, propane fireplace, and five-piece ensuite, and a lower level that hosts a game room, media room, wet bar, sauna, office, and additional suite.

Outside, the splendour goes on, as you’ll find a massive Muskoka granite patio punctuated by a sunken, lake-facing hot tub, a remote-controlled, subterranean, retractable flat-screen TV, and a custom granite dining table and chairs. The large outdoor kitchen and granite counter staging space with a built-in BBQ, searing grill, and warming ovens means that fish fries and feasts of seafood pasta have never been easier, or more inviting.

Across the lot, a bespoke boathouse with a shaded lounge area, wet bar, wood-burning fireplace and a flat-screen TV await the presence of you, the family, and your nearest and dearest. An attached garage and workshop is present on-site for any must-do maintenance, and two other separately deeded waterfront lots sit vacant, poised with the potential to host two more cottages and a second boathouse, or to be enjoyed as one large, lakefront experience.

Facing due south, another separate waterfront lot features a vintage legacy log cabin located along 320-feet of sandy lagoon shoreline. Here, you’ll find a guest Bunkie and a shoreline cabin, ideal for a kids’ play place or extra storage.

Location-wise, calling this house your home means living just five minutes from Bigwin Island’s world class golf, and the five-star dining to be found there. Likely, though, you’ll find it difficult to tear yourself away from staying at home. With 24 acres of treed backlot ensuring total privacy, this luxe lodge will quickly become your safe haven.
