Roselawn Annex is a Century residence on a five+ acre, private property in historic Bala, Ontario that is two hours from Toronto. Roselawn with five bedrooms each with a 3-piece ensuite bathroom, has an exquisite kitchen, dining area, family room, and the best indoor and outdoor porches in Muskoka. The Property is serviced by municipal water and sewer; there is ample parking; it is very privately located and a very short walking distance to restaurants and cafes, grocery store, Don’s Bakery, shopping, liquor and beer stores, bank and churches.
This charming property has hosted many people over the years with the most famous guest being Lucy Maud Montgomery who vacationed at Roselawn in July, 1922 when she started her wonderful novel “The Blue Castle” where she described Roselawn as a place where” “The lawn runs (gently) down to the river where the bank is fringed by trees. It is beautiful at all times but especially at night when the river silvers under the moon….” Half a century later, Megan Follows who brought Anne of Green Gables to television, Greg Kinnear and other actors have enjoyed the river. The south facing property has a quiet, protected sandy beach where swimmers can walk out for some distance; shared access to a dock to moor a small (not seadoo) water craft; a canoe and kayak are available. This prime Muskoka area includes hiking, birding, boating on the Moon River and the very nearby Muskoka lakes, watercraft rentals, short drives to 3 sizable cities–Port Carling, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst. There are two waterfalls in the town and a private jet airport within 20 minutes. If your vacation goal is some quiet calm by a beautiful river that “silvers under the moon” on a signature Muskoka property, in a century residence that is quiet, contemplative and private and very near numerous amenities, Roselawn will be a good choice.
