Vacation Cottage Rental Description:
A nature lover's dream on 20+ private acres in the heart of Ontario's premier cottage country: If peace and seclusion are your idea of the idyllic vacation, this wilderness cottage retreat surrounded by precambrian forest at the foot of beautiful, expansive Haliburton Lake, is your ticket to paradise. There's 1,200 feet of sand/rock frontage with ample decking and just enough open spaces to soak in the sun. Westerly view for terrific sunsets. Plenty to explore in this landscape of perennial gardens, bridges and walking paths--even a waterfall—and nicely treed to the shore with a not too steep decline to the lake with nice steps. Backdropped by granite cliffs and towering oak and pine, our rustic abode is a breathtaking departure from the hustle and bustle of city life. Say 'poof' to neighbours and welcome the great outdoors! The 1,620 square foot cottage has 3 bedrooms, plus loft makes 4, and 2 bathrooms to comfortably sleeps 6+. A great family getaway which features a floating 'island' that seats 4, a lakeside fire pit for toasting marshmellows, two large stationary docks, a generous deck with patio furniture, muskoka chairs and propane BBQ; a balcony off the master bedroom, washer and dryer, as well as a dishwasher and microwave in a charming pine country kitchen with potable water. Lots of games for the kids including foosball. Satellite TV, highspeed internet in a Great Room with cathedral ceilings which open onto the front deck and view of the lake. Overhead fans and baseboard heat throughout makes for a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We're deep in the woods, but only 12 kms from the Fort Irwin Marina with its little store and ice cream stand. 20 minutes from Eagle Lake for groceries and gas what you need to raise a glass, and 1/2 an hour from the not-too-bustling tourist town of Haliburton.
