If you want to experience the true feel of cottage country and the Canadian Shield, the tranquility of a remote cottage but only 15 minutes from Canada’s ‘Best Country Store’, you’ve come to the right place.
Red Oaks is at the east end of beautiful Kawagama Lake, the largest lake in Haliburton County. The cottage is set a little back from the lake with lawns front and back with a great firepit for those evenings roasting s’mores and wieners. Steps lead down the the docks where you might spend early mornings enjoying a coffee while drinking in the view across the water.
The swimming is great at this location with shallow water at the shoreline with sand underfoot so you can wade out to deeper water. It is clean and clear.
Entry to the cottage is into a hallway that opens into a great room with a living area to one side and the kitchen and dining spaces to the other. The sunroom is off the kitchen end and will be a great place for enjoying the outside with the benefits of the screened windows. Play cards, sit and read a book or do a little web surfing to research the great things to do in the area.
There are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the main floor.
The upper level has 2 more bedrooms.
While you are there, you may not want to be away from the cottage much, but if you feel the need to venture out, then Dorset is a 15 minute drive. Everything you will need from a grocery store is avaialable at Robinson’s General Store, while the adventurous might want to climb the Dorset Fire Tower. A good day trip is into Algonquin Park where you can rent canoes and explore, or take a run into Huntsville for bigger stores and and a walk down the pretty main street.+ More
