The name says it all. Well, nearly all…..yes, there are stupendous sunsets and a gorgeous sandy beach, but there’s also a wonderfully welcoming cottage/home with four bedrooms and a sunroom, beautiful lawn and a gazebo. Overall this is the ultimate vacation rental package, and at less than an hour and a half from the city, it’s ideal for short breaks out of season as well as longer summer holidays.
Located at the north end of the small town of Beaverton on the eastern shores of Lake Simcoe, Sunset Beach benefits from a westerly outlook across the lake. Although there are neighbouring homes, there is tree cover that offers a nice amount of privacy to one side and just one property visible on the other. A well-kept lawn leads to a raised deck with wonderful lake views and steps down to the soft sand beach shallow water which is great for small children. The water is shallow for quite a long way out. There is a dock for short term moorings and the boats included in the rental can be pulled out of the water after use. A firepit at the water’s edge will no doubt be the venue for many evenings of wiener and marshmallow roasts as you enjoy the lapping water and the magical canopy of stars.
While we think most time will be spent outside, the interior of this cottage won’t disappoint. It’s more of a home than cottage with everything you might need for a great stay, from the fully equipped kitchen to lots of games, books and surround sound theatre / blueray entertainment. An open -plan kitchen, dining and living room offers comfortable and open accommodation on the main level; a large breakfast bar with stools creates a convivial spot for sharing time with the chef-of-the-day, and a screened sunroom on the lake side can be enjoyed at any time – we thought morning coffee and aperitifs before the evening barbecue!
Sleeping accommodation is split between the two levels with the attractive master bedroom with walk in closet on the main floor . The upper floor has three more bedrooms and another large bathroom while the lower level has a family room, extra shower area, bathroom and computer room with internet hookup.
Beaverton is a small lakeside village with shopping, restaurants, a marina and a newly built supermarket on Hwy 12. With three golf courses in the vicinity and Casino Rama and the city of Orillia just twenty minutes to the north, there is plenty of additional entertainment and places to visit…..if you can tear yourself away from Sunset Beach.+ More
