Family friendly, child safe! 70 minutes from Toronto. All the luxuries of home (with excellent wifi), but with the ease & relaxation of cottage life. Lakefield Cottage is situated on grassy, level land (almost an acre in size) with no stairs needed to get to the clear, weed-free, sandy, gradual entry, crystal clear water. A Primrose Lake location (Trent-waterway system) provides protection behind an island and large rock shoals. Explore the shoals with snorkels and try a hand at excellent bass fishing. Located half way along a private road surrounded by mature sugar maple trees and hedging. A quick 5 minuted drive or boat to town for LCBO, groceries, fantastic restaurants, and Kawartha Dairy Ice-cream.
This ranchstyle cottage faces East for beautiful sunrises off the dock and is nestled in a nice quiet bay of family cottages and seasonal homes. Parents of young children or those who find rocky or hilly terrain challenging will appreciate the gentle and safe lot and easy water access. The gently sloping, sand beach, beside the 40’ long x 6’ wide cedar wood dock, is a perfectly shaded spot for afternoon swims or splashing. The very well maintained, private cottage road has private woods and grassy fields offering privacy and an ideal area for walking, hiking, jogging and biking. We rarely have a pothole on the road, it is meticulously maintained by a resident of the road. A packed sand and gravel driveway leads to a cement-parking pad and offers ample parking and easy access to the cottage making loading and unloading a breeze!
The cottage is approximately 1500 square feet. There are 3 bedrooms; 1 King with double closet, TV, private deck access, facing the water; 1 Queen with double closet (and is the darkest for daytime naps), 1 large kid bedroom (upstairs) with TV/DVD, 2 Queen beds, a bunk bed (single over double) AND a Disco Ball. The mainfloor four piece washroom is tiled for convenience and cleanliness (separate shower, tub, toilet and vanity). The laundry room provides a front load washer and dryer or choose the huge clothes line. The custom Maple kitchen is huge with a dishwasher, glass cook top stove, microwave, stainless steel fridge, gas BBQ and every cooking necessity imaginable. The dining area and open concept living room with 2 couches and multiple bean bags make for cozy nights. The exterior is board and batten. The interior walls are drywall with Maple floors throughout. Large windows and a large ceiling fan help to circulate the air in the summer. Water supply is drawn from the lake and purified by a UV water filtration system, there is also a water cooler in the kitchen.
The kitchen area includes a huge counter with a stainless steel sink, maple cupboards, a new refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. Two skylights in the living room provide wonderful natural light as does the French doors leading to the kitchen deck and patio table.
The nice sized living area has picture windows with a view of the deck and lakefront beyond. Also included are a large flat screen TV with cable, DVD/Blu-ray/ and a wii unit.
Appliances and electronics include fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, TV and DVD players.
There are several marina's in the area for boat rentals.
Primrose Lake is a clean, healthy lake located just outside of Lakefield approximately 10 minutes North Peterborough. The fishing and swimming are excellent. The lake contains small and large mouth bass (guarantee a catch off the dock) and some carp. The depth is about 15 feet on average and as much as 20 feet deep in some spots. There are two islands (Big and Small), one protects our beachfront and the other is fun to explore. There is no marina on the lake but there is a boat launch if you have a motorboat. We frequently see deer, heron, ducks, loons, beaver and turtles. The closest towns are Lakefield, Bridgenorth and Peterborough.+ More
