A unique vacation is available at this 6 acre rural retreat in the picturesque Beaver Valley, an area of scenic nature, close to beautiful rivers and lakes, waterfalls, fishing, birding, canoeing, golfing, snowshoeing skiing and much more.
The 1600 sq ft, 5 bedroom cottage offers fabulous privacy in a natural setting with plenty of opportunity to explore and enjoy its fields, woodlands and wetlands along with the convenience of being just a 10 minute drive from quaint shops, antiques, and eateries in the village of Flesherton. On your way to the property you will travel country roads and experience picturesque villages, forests and farm fields. When you arrive, a winding driveway takes you to the cottage tucked behind the trees. As you enter the cottage there is plenty of room for shoes, jackets, etc in the entry foyer. On the main floor of the cottage there is a dining room, kitchen, living room and three bedrooms. In the dining room there is a buffet, hutch and table that easily seats six people. The compact but efficient kitchen is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and more. Next to the kitchen is a screened-in porch with wicker couch, love seat and chair where you can take advantage of the view, relax with a good book, or enjoy a cup of tea and catch up with family members. From the screened-in porch there is a door to the upper rear deck with patio table, umbrella, six chairs and propane BBQ. After you have grilled your favourite vacation meal on the BBQ, you can sit down to enjoy an outdoor dinner.
The living room offers comfortable furniture to unwind in and includes a full size couch, two chairs and ottomans. The living room features a wall of floor to ceiling windows that provide terrific views out over the rear deck and the surrounding woodlands. There is also a patio door to the upper rear deck. On the main level of the cottage there are three bedrooms and a four-piece bathroom with tub/shower. Each of the bedrooms have bright windows with views of the property. There is a king bed in one bedroom, a queen bed in the next and a double bed in the other bedroom. On the lower level of the cottage there are two bedrooms each with two single beds. There is also a comfortable recreation room with a relaxing couch and ottoman, TV and table and chairs for card/board games - a great spot for the older kids to hang out in their own space. There is a washer and dryer for your laundry needs and a four-piece bathroom with tub/shower. Outside there is a fabulous newly constructed two level deck. The patio table, chairs and BBQ are on the upper level. The large lower level deck has plenty of room for chairs and there is an eight-person hot tub. It's a great spot for taking advantage of the view and tranquil forest sounds, catching some rays, socializing and relaxing with your book. In the rear yard you will find a fire pit where you can enjoy storytelling and roasting marshmallows under the starry sky. Throughout the property you will find groomed trails provided by the owner for your enjoyment. As an added bonus the cottage owners, who also own the surrounding 140 acres of farmland, live at the next farm down the road. You can visit them to arrange for various seasonally available farm products. You can also enjoy about three-quarter miles of groomed walking trails on the farm along the forest edge that lead to Wilcox Lake where you can take a dip in the water, try your hand at fishing, or enjoy a picnic lunch. There is plenty to see and do in the area. Take your camera and explore the beauty of Hogg's Falls, Eugenia Falls, and Walters Falls (one of Ontario's few twin falls). Spend a few hours or an entire day on some of the cycling and hiking trails including the Bruce Trail and the Grey County Rail Trail that cross the owner's farm, or explore the world of 'birding'. Visit one of the area famers markets, play one of the local golf courses, stroll the streets of the heritage towns and villages in the area and explore unique gift, antique shops, and artist and artisan galleries.
