TORONTO, Ontario (May 11, 2012) — Muskoka Communities Inc. is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its newest vacation cottages, Shamrock Bay Resort. The resort—scheduled to open at the end of this month—is located in Severn Bridge, a picturesque community just 12 minutes from Gravenhurst, Ontario.
Situated on the shores of the pristine Trent-Severn Waterway, Shamrock Bay Resort offers something truly unique: “three-season” vacation cottages in Muskoka. This 53-acre, water-front resort features 286 maintenance-free cottages, each with a private deck and access to the water. The resort represents community-style living with an array of amenities to include an in-land marina large enough for 113 boats, an outdoor heated, saltwater pool, gazebos, playgrounds, bike trails, laundry facilities, barbecue dining facilities, a splash pad, and a new Discovery Center. Future additions to the resort will include an additional 37 boat slips.
“Shamrock Bay combines the scenic backdrop of Muskoka with beautiful cottages, great amenities, friendly staff and superior professional management,” said Muskoka Communities Director, Shane Melanson. “It offers a relaxing lifestyle-resort in an atmosphere where both individuals and families can experience an exceptional home away from home.”
The impending launch of the new vacation cottages in Muskoka brings a more affordable, high-quality alternative to the popular leisure destination. Located about 100 miles north of Toronto, Muskoka was recently ranked by National Geographic as the No. 1 vacation spot in the world. In the past, individuals wanting more affordable vacation ownership on the water in “Cottage Country” Muskoka had two main options: They could buy a house on the lake (with lots starting at $500,000) or purchase a water-front condo, starting at about $225,000. Shamrock Bay Resort offers something different and unique: with prices starting at just $70,000, high-end amenities in a family-oriented community and unlimited access to a vacation cottage in desirable Muskoka.
Essentially, Shamrock Bay Resort allows owners to enjoy the benefits of being on the water in Muskoka—without having to splurge on a million-dollar cottage or relatively expensive condo. And unlike a traditional timeshare, Shamrock Bay doesn’t have restrictions on how many days you come out to enjoy your cottage. So owners enjoy full ownership of and access to a tranquil, life-style community whenever and however they wish.
