This 3 bedroom, 1 bath cottage sits on a Southern exposure point with fantastic views of the lake. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck and then all day sun on the new large 8' x 27' floating dock or 10' x 10' waterfront patio. The lake is clean and an ideal temperature for swimming all summer. There is a gradual entry area or deep 20' water off the dock for swimming. A ladder has been installed on the dock. Whitestone Lake's perimeter is 43km long, with many arms and islands to explore.
