Located on 100’ of south & south/west facing Moon River shoreline & just minutes from the quaint town of Bala, Bala Magic is the perfect Muskoka cottage for your family. Lovely river views & stunning sunsets, water toys for the active and a 10-minute stroll to town. In Bala you will find many popular restaurants, outdoor cafes, pubs, and live entertainment including the famous weekly water ski shows and the Kee to Bala music venue.  Stop by Don’s Bakery for a sweet treat or head over to Cottage Cravings for something special It doesn’t get any better than this!

Feel like a stroll? We think you will! A nice 10-15 minute walk takes you along River Road into the quaint little town of Bala, which offers all the basics for your stay, along with some tempting ice cream and bakery stops. If you feel like driving a little further afield, you'll find all that Muskoka offers - the towns of Gravenhurst and Port Carling, the Johnson Cranberry Marsh, golf courses. Bala sits on the Falls at Moon River which is dotted with wonderful cottages along its banks. In many ways more like a lake than a river, the Moon River offers great swimming, excellent boating and fishing. Exploring the islands and bays of the river is a favorite pastime of boaters and paddlers here. The waterfront at Bala Magic has a shallow, gradual entry on flat rock leading to a sandy bottom further out. With deeper water swimming available beyond the dock, it is well suited to swimmers of all ages and abilities. If you'd rather just be a waterfront spectator, the waterfront patio is the spot for you! 

At the cottage, enjoy lounging in comfort with views from every room including a breezy Muskoka Room. Lounge in the sun on the stone patio or deck overlooking the water. There is a boat launch very nearby however, 2 kayaks (with 2 adult life jackets are available) (canoes & SUP's can be rented nearby) can be launched right from the cottage private beach. The cottage itself has a lovely living room with a smart tv, and wifi plus board games etc.There are two distinct wings for the bedrooms, each with is own bathroom. While the communal areas are great for together time, the adjacent sleeping areas allow for privacy. The master bedroom is on the east wing and features a queen bed plus a 4-piece bathroom in this wing and private walk-out to the waterfront. The west wing has the second bedroom with two bunk beds plus a double bed. There is also a nice sitting area in this room, with a wood stove for cold nights in the non summer months.

The water is shallow at the shoreline and perfect for young children then drops off gradually to a depth of 4 feet off the dock. We are south facing for sun all day and amazing sunsets from the dock.
Drip coffee maker uses # 4 filters (provided) for ground coffee.

Bala , ON , Canada

Located on the shores of the Moon River within walking distance of the main street in Bala yet far enough away for a true cottage feel. A short walk to Don’s Bakery or the local ice cream shop and walkable from the Kee to Bala if you decide to take in a concert or the weekly water ski shows. This incredible family cottage is just minutes from town where you will find quaint shops and restaurants plus groceries and an LCBO. A short drive to Gravenhurst with its famous Wednesday farmers market. Make sure to also check out PIE on your way to Gravenhurst, a great spot to stop for a wood fired pizza and salad and next door check out Clear Lake Brewery,  the newest microbrewery in Muskoka. A short distance north to the dining and shopping in Port Carling. Lots of room for kids to run and play and swim with a shallow sandy area at the shore and deep water off the dock. Cruise the big three lakes by boat, and explore the bays and inlets by kayak or paddle board. Enjoy walks, running, and cycling on the hilly cottage roads. The western exposure provides glorious sunsets for your end of day campfire by the lake. Bala Magic is a wonderful spot to build family memories.
