Property Description

Welcome to 2 Hills Island! Nestled in a sheltered bay with 675 feet of breathtaking multi exposure on the coveted south end of Hills Island, Peninsula Lake, Muskoka. Walk back in time to an era of steamships and elegantly dressed Muskoka cottagers. The two slip wet boathouse plus one exterior slip allows three boats to moor. On the dock you can enjoy a coffee and watch the sun as it rises in the morning. Then move over to the beach area and enjoy a swim or a paddle on the quiet bay and at the end of the day take in glorious sunsets with a view of the ski hills at Hidden Valley on the wraparound and recently refurbished veranda.
Known as Dunelg, the main cottage features a wraparound veranda with westerly views. Inside, the focal point of the living room is a lovely stone fireplace that warms the cottage on cool evenings. The dining room has lake views on both sides and is just off the kitchen. Upstairs is the principal bedroom with a lovely sun porch overlooking the west side of the peninsula. There is also an office for those who must work while at the cottage. On the main level there are two guest bedrooms and a three piece bathroom. The charming guest cabin or bunkie is perfect for visiting children or adults young at heart. With its own porch and a bunk bed, the guest cabin sits close to the south shore and natural sandy beach area. With south, east and west exposures plus deep water off the westerly side of the island and a shallow, sandy beach, there is something for everyone at 2 Hills Island.
This cottage has been lovingly cared for and curated by the same two families for almost 100 years! Mooring and parking less than five minutes away. For those who are seeking a private lot to build their dream cottage, or history buffs who want to maintain the existing structures, Dunelg has been lovingly cared for by the same family for nearly 50 years and they are ready now to pass on the torch of ownership to a new family!
