This three-bedroom cottage was built in 1979, and while real estate doesn't necessarily become more attractive the older it gets, the home's 42-year history certainly adds to the charm of this particular woodsy structure.

Go Home Lake is, according to Wiki, rockier and more rugged than other lakes in the Muskoka area, and there are varying stories as to how the lake got its name, though it also shares a name with the Go Home Bay downstream, with historic connections to loggers and timber that would be sent via the Musquash River.

The cottage has more than 1,270 square feet of living space, defined by its vaulted ceilings and wood plank floors. 

The kitchen has a view of the lake, which sits just beyond the front yard.

The cottage includes extensive space for storage and a backyard bunkie for guests.

Beyond all the features, including a fire place, the best part of this lake house is the lake, and the fact that you can boat across it along the river system through the gorgeous territory that includes Georgian Bay.
