<b>Waterfront & Swimming</b>
From the upper deck, twenty steps lead down to the water. The view from the dock is expansive and breathtaking.
A key feature to our rental cottage is its natural shoreline (145' of frontage) with a large 200 sq ft stationary dock situated right at the waters’ edge. Extending from the stationary dock is a large 12’x20’ floating dock with swim ladder. There is primarily deep water swimming from the dock with a limited rocky shallow area.
The swimming conditions are perfect with clean, clear water and no weeds.
A canoe, 2 kayaks and 14’ aluminum boat (no motor) are available for your enjoyment on the lake. (renters must provide their own life preservers)
If you want to bring your own power boat, our lake offers the Kennisis Lake Marina where you can launch your boat or should you prefer to rent a watercraft, this is also an option but book early for better selection.
The great outdoors is perfectly blended with modern living here. Unlimited wifi and unlimited Canada wide long distance calling included.
Great neighbors on both sides, with lots of parking space!
A grocery store and LCBO are 20 minutes away in West Guilford.
