Tucked away at the end of a wooded lane, this cottage is a haven for those seeking tranquility in a secluded location along with beautifully presented accommodation.
It’s rare to find a cottage that retains a traditional feel yet has been updated to offer the contemporary amenities and features you’d expect in your home. This one has it all, so you can enjoy great décor in every room but still get that great ‘cottage vibe’.
The first thing you notice is the huge tree that abuts the main door making it feel as though the cottage is a natural part of the property. Then as you enter, the ambience of the honey-coloured wood, leather furniture and carefully selected artwork creates a feeling of comfort and luxury that is rarely seen in cottage country.
The open-plan living and dining room on the waterside and the kitchen to the rear form the heart of the cottage, with the bathroom to one side of the kitchen.
Two bedrooms are off the living room, and the third is to the side of the dining room, giving privacy to two couples or families vacationing together.
Outside, it’s a matter of choice where you want to claim your spot to sunbathe, sit in the shade, or read a book on the dock. A screened gazebo is a great spot for pre-dinner drinks or just extending your day into the evening. And of course there’s a campfire pit for roasting marshmallows.
Steps lead down to the extensive dock where you’ll find sturdy wooden steps into the water (about 3ft deep). And here’s where the adventure starts. Take the kayaks out to explore the beauty of Mazinaw Lake and Bon Echo Provincial Park. Rent a boat from Smart’s Marina or bring your own, and the lake becomes yours to explore.
You won’t want to miss the hiking trails in the park so the owner has thoughtfully provided a Parks Pass for one vehicle.
We fell in love with this ‘cottage in the woods’ and think you will too.+ More
