Lake Rosseau shores are directly in front of the Birch cottage but a safe distance for children safety. The land gently slopes for easy access. The beach furniture and docks, as well as the Gazebo are yours to enjoy. The beach is wide and VERY safe with a gentle slope for 20-30 meters into the lake. You are on the western side resulting in diminished winds on such days. The bay is calm when the lake could be rough. The Birch is surrounded by colour from the natural surroundings and the perennial gardens in the spring, summer and fall. The fall takes the prize however with a full-colour cavalcade. In winter, the quiet days, star-filled skies and white blanket of snow and ice capture our attention. The natural hues of rocks, sky, forests and waters that surround you become a painting right before your eyes and the sounds of nature surround you.+ More
