Wheelchair Access and Mobility
We visited Cliff Bay House for an early spring weekend. Although we had all of our three generations of family together, our primary purpose for visiting CBH was to provide a post winter blahs getaway for our adult Son and two members of his therapy team. Having the entire family along was an added bonus.
We are so pleased we found Cliff Bay House at Muskoka Soul. Two hours, fifteen minutes door to door, beds for all eleven of us and loads of room for gatherings in the kitchen, great room and media room. But most importantly, entrance and access throughout CBH was unrestrictive throughout the main floor even with a fully extended adult wheelchair. Upstairs access is not feasible for our Son. Nor was it necessary, as all the ‘action’ is happening on the main floor. Media room, great room, huge kitchen, large deck, and screened in Muskoka room are all accessible with wider entry doors and hallways designed with mobility in mind. No need for three or four point turns anywhere on the main floor! No need to move furniture ‘out of the way’. Add two side by side bedrooms on the main floor of which either provide plenty of maneuverability, and room for Hoyer or Easytrack FS lifts, and this makes for perfect accommodations where a caregiver(s) needs to be nearby. On the advice of Sandra, our Son enjoyed the Haven bedroom as it offered an oversized view to the outdoors. Speaking of views….the vistas from the great room, deck and Muskoka room overlooking Cliff Bay are naturally soothing and therapeutic.
The second floor is bright and sunlit with plenty of windows in the four large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Our two granddaughters ‘loved’ the ‘princess’ soaker tub. Beds were comfy, linen was crisp and clean and all slept well.
In the interest of full disclosure, and not wishing to mislead other guests with accessibility challenges; 1) The bathrooms at CBH are not equipped with accessibility aids or hardware; 2) Dock and lake access is restricted to able bodied guests only. This said, neither one of these conditions were important or critical for our visit. However, there is a spacious open fire pit area on the ‘road side’ of the house which is easily accessible.
Cliff Bay House is a great place to go and relax. Great views and very comfortable and roomy. All you need to bring is your food and they supply everything else.
Muskoka Soul Cliff Bay House is truly a magical place!
A beautiful luxurious cottage where every detail is considered with the ultimate guest experience in mind.
The setting is perfect for every season...located on a secluded bay on Lake Muskoka with stunning views, wonderful swimming as well as access to serene hiking trails. Very close to Gravenhurst for quick trips into town and surrounding activities.
Will definitely be back
Very professional accommodations! Clean, comfortable beautiful setting! Every amenity you would need to make your stay enjoyable. Close to town and activities. Great hosts, Beautiful scenery!
This rental was absolutely gorgeous. It was not only clean and in fantastic condition but every little detail made the difference - from the surround sound to the two dishwashers, the full separate bar section & bar fridge, the readily available books & board games and the soaps, shampoo and other products available in the washrooms. The place was perfectly spacious; there were only a few of us on this trip but it didn't feel cavernous yet it would've also been great with double the number. I'll definitely look forward to going back again soon.
