Looking to reconnect with nature? Stay in our authentic 3rd generation family cottage! 2 hours north of Toronto, cozy ambiance (540 sq ft.) wood burning stove, small quiet lake, large private lot with HOT TUB, fire pit, 2 kayaks & canoe available at no extra charge. Walking distance to an awesome family restaurant (great breakfast) & 9, 18 hole & mini-golf courses! Mins.from Washago, Orillia, Casino Rama. Kid & pet friendly! Water access 2 min walk down a private lane. Awesome Fall/Winter stays!
This is a traditional, 3rd generation family cottage (not a guesthouse). It is private and for your use only. We live approximately 15 minutes away and are available if you need us.
Cottage has easy access to highway 11. A golf course buffers the area between us and the highway but highway sounds are audible.
IMPORTANT RE WINTER USAGE: Cottage is available year-round but there is no running water for showers during winter months. Water is generally shut off sometime in November, depending on temperatures. We do provide enough water for drinking, cooking, etc. From Nov15-Mar 31 we offer 1 night stays, but do not provide sheets and towels. We do provide blankets. Hot tub is operational during winter months and the compost toilet is functional. Think about it ... have you ever enjoyed a hot tub during a light snowfall with a roaring fire in the firepit? It IS magical!

We are both recently retired artistic types and have a passion for travel! We have been fortunate enough to have traveled to Ireland, Italy, Spain and St. Maarten in the past few years and are looking forward to more adventures this year! We love animals of all kind and have two beautiful cocker spaniels that are spoiled beyond belief. Another passion is enjoying and entertaining in our new outdoor space! We hope you love it as much as we do!
