Clydesdale Lake is a hidden gem in the North Kawarthas. The spectacular unobstructed views from the cottage and its setting provide you with a feeling of perfect happiness. Grab a coffee and watch the unbelievable views from the living room or dock. The cottage is 10 min from the town of Apsley and 2 hours from Toronto. This small quiet lake is ideal for getting away and recharging batteries. Clydesdale Lake has an average depth of 1.8m with its deepest point being 4m. There is excellent swimming off the dock and fishing in its clear waters. The water is always calm. Our cottage has 60 feet of waterfront with western exposure giving sunshine for most of the day. Whether you’re swimming, relaxing on the dock, or sitting in front of the house, your whole family will be together on the lake level waterfront. There are no steps between the cottage and the water, only a few feet of grass, so it’s perfect for the grandparents. You really can’t get any closer to the water if you tried.
Apsley is only 10 min away and has all the essentials - Foodland, LCBO, library, drugstore, convenience store, Royal Bank, Home Hardware and many upscale cottage gift shops. Coe Hill is the other town nearby which has great dining at the Hideaway Primitive Grill and a great antique shop called Trashy Treasures.
