About This Cottage
Every once in a while, we come across a cottage that defines pride of ownership. Angel's Rest is just such a place. Built by the original owners 40 years ago, it has witnessed the special times of a family growing together. Now under new ownership, and after a short absence from the pages of CLRM, the cottage has been updated by the new owners who are ready to share it with another generation of families looking to discover cottage country and Muskoka.
Angel's Rest is located on pretty McLean Lake, located just 90 minutes from the GTA. This makes it a great choice for people who want a true cottage getaway within an easy driving distance.
The first thing you will notice is that, unlike most cottages, Angel's Rest is of brick construction - so whether it's the big bad wolf or just inclement weather, you will always be safe and cosy inside! You will notice next that the lawn between the cottage and the lake is expansive - picturesque and a great place for the family to share a game of badminton or tag. Mom and Dad can watch from the comfort of the deck if they want to leave strenuous activity to the younger set. There is a nice shallow entry to the lake, good for wading in or those who like to take it slow when dipping their toes in the water. Within a few yards, you are into deeper water and enjoying good swimming.
Let's go inside and have a look at where you'll be staying. The main floor houses a spacious open-concept living and dining room, with seating for 8 around the formal dining room table. Beside that, comfy seating provides a relaxing area for games or a movie, with the kitchen close by to feed those famous cottage appetites! The kitchen has all you need, including a dishwasher.
There are 2 bedrooms on the main level, as well as a 4-piece bathroom, so it sounds like this level houses everyone comfortably. Indeed, this is the case, but don't stop here...downstairs there is more. Another bedroom with 2 beds overlooks the waterfront, with a den without pullout couch for extra sleeping and a wood stove is at the ready to warm a family room should nights turn cool. A great feature at Angel's is that there is another kitchen and dining table on the lower level. This makes Angel's Rest the choice for multi-generational or extended family groups wanting to retain some privacy between couples while spending a vacation together.
The area is centrally located on Muskoka's door step so there are ample activities of interest should you decide to venture out for a day or two. The Midland-Penetanguishene area awaits the history and museum buffs in your group. Golfers will want to play a round at Bonaire, a nice course just 20 km down the road in Coldwater (which is also the place you will find your grocery and shopping needs). Boaters will be delighted to discover that you can access the Trent-Severn system from Maclean Lake, and are just one lock away from Georgian Bay - although canoeists and kayakers may want to rent a craft and spend some time exploring the islands in Gloucester Pool.
If you want a cottage that is well suited to medium to large families, you will definitely want to consider Angel's Rest.

There are tens of thousands of islands in the nearby Georgian Bay. Most of these islands are along the east side of the bay and are collectively known as the "Thirty Thousand Islands," including the larger Parry Island. Manitoulin Island, lying along the northern side of the bay, is the world's largest island in a freshwater lake. Source: Wikipedia
