Property Description

Sleeps 9, Beautiful Sunsets, Gently Sloped Property, Walk-In Entry, Private, Fire Pit, Child/Elderly Friendly, Great Swimming, No Weeds, WiFi, Pet Friendly (TBD)

Come and relax in this brand new, beautifully designed cottage on Balsam Lake. The grand room features soaring 16 foot vaulted ceilings and amazing west-facing panoramic views of the lake.  There is plenty of seating both indoors and out – whether you want to hang out in the open concept family room, relax on the expansive deck or dock or around a cozy fire at night. The property offers a great mix of sunshine and shade from the mature trees that also give you privacy. 52” Smart TV and Blue-ray/DVD, some board games and playing cards are there for those rainy days or evenings. The connected speaker system both indoors and outdoors provides rich full sound no matter where you are. There is an outdoor fire pit for those who enjoy campfires, laughter and conversation. The property boasts 100 feet of inviting natural shoreline, with walk-in entry into a hard-packed sand base with no weeds, on one of the best lakes in the Kawarthas.

Enjoy a refreshing drink sitting on the dock watching a windsurfer go by or simply soak in the quiet serenity that will make you forget you are only an hour and a half from Toronto. For those fishing enthusiasts, you may already know that the fishing on Balsam Lake is excellent – bring up your rods and fish right off the dock! This space was designed to maximize comfort and relaxation for families – great sight lines for parents, ample green space for tossing around a frisbee or setting up a friendly game of badminton, and even a sandbox for the little ones.
