About This Cottage

They are building some wonderful cottages and homes in cottage country these days - and we were thrilled to be offered the chance to offer this property to our guests. This recently constructed cottage takes full advantage of its location at the end of a beautiful bay on Ril Lake. With views that just don't quit from almost every room in the cottage, you'll enjoy classic cottage country scenery for your entire stay.

The main floor is dominated by the picture windows in the living room that look straight down the bay. The living room also has flat screen satellite TV and a fireplace. The level is open concept, with the kitchen and dining table (hand crafted by the owner) adjoining the living room. Two bedrooms and a 4-piece bath round out this level. A trip to the lower level will find a family room will reveal the family room, complete with yet another view of the bay, another fireplace and TV, and a pool table as well. Another 2 bedrooms and a 4-piece bath complete the tour. This balance of the two levels makes Bayview on Ril an excellent choice for an extended or larger family who need to separate for some different pursuits now and then.

Outside, you will enjoy everything Ril Lake has to offer. There is a dock. The water has a shallow sandy/soft bottom entry, but deepens fairly quickly and is 5-6 feet off the end of the dock. A rowboat and a paddleboat are great for exploring the lake or casting a line in the water on a lazy afternoon.

The cottage road runs between the cottage and the lake. While it is not a busy road, you will see the occasional car pass through.

If you decide you want to take your own car out for a bit, you'll find a number of quaint cottage towns an easy distance away. Baysville offers a bakery to tempt you, and Dorset is a great little spot for supplies and ice cream. Take a side trip to the Dorset lookout tower for yet another great view. If you need a little more of an urban setting, Huntsville offers much in terms of arts, entertainment and shopping.

Bayview on Ril is bound to be a popular spot - it offers wonderful value in an upscale cottage. We hope it's right for you!

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time at Bayview on Ril! The cottage was spacious, clean and so amazingly bright. It offered every single thing you'd ever want at a family get-away. The cottage was decorated beautifully. Check in was flawless. Can't wait to return next year! Thank you for a great experience.

We were two families, and we all had a fabulous week. Lots of room for everyone to have their own space and enjoy their time in the gorgeous locale. The cottage is fresh and clean. We were a bit concerned about the road running between the cottage and the dock, but it was fine. We brought up our own water toys (kayak, seadoo, SUP) which we were thankful we did. Lots of movies and TV channels in case of rainy days. There is wifi - but not very strong, so if you have work to do (web meetings, video conferencing, lots of internet use) prepare to be patient or it is the perfect reason NOT to work. Lots of kitchen essentials (BBQ, pots, pans, dishes, etc.) be sure to bring all ingredients you will need with you, but if you forget anything, Baysville is a short drive, and Bracebridge and Huntsville are just a bit further. If you are a large family or a couple/few families vacationing together, Bayview on the Ril is a great option.

We stayed on the May long weekend; 2 families of three. The home is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and has many amenities including a fully stocked kitchen, satellite tv, a pool table and access to a little boat for the lake. The screened in porch was nice touch so we could enjoy fresh air without the bugs. Thank you for a lovely stay. We would love to come back some day.
