This 3 bedroom cottage is on a small bay on Clear Lake just north of Huntsville. It offers lots of activities both indoors and out. The interior is open concept, has cathedral pine ceilings, and birch and ceramic tile flooring, and lots of windows! The kitchen has a new pine table and chairs for 8 people, and the additional bar stools at the counter make for a good spot for quick meals. There is a walk out to the side deck, and the picnic table here is large enough for everyone. The expansive windows in the living area (which open) provide lots of light and a nice view of the treed yard and lake beyond. There is 1 bedroom on the main floor and the other 2 are in the loft with the 'kids' room being open and at one end. The semi-finished lower level contains the pool table and shuffleboard, and it has a walkout as well. Relax on the sofas watching others play pool and admire the beautiful stone fireplace.
The lot is elevated with a grassed yard and nice landscaping. Beyond this, the property is natural vegetation with a set of steps leading you to the lakefront. The large dock is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun, tie up your boat, and swim off of. A sitting area (new in spring 2012) along the waterfront provides a nice spot to sit and watch everyone swim. The sandy shoreline area provides a good entry into the water for both young and old. The lake bottom is firm sand and is about 2.5 feet deep when out about 16 feet. It then drops off to about 8 feet deep at the end of the dock, providing good swimming for both shallow and deep water preferences. Fishing is fair.
Enjoy being at this cottage in any season - winter, spring, summer and fall. Sitting around an outdoor bonfire is great any time of year. Low and winter seasons provide peace and tranquility - also, more chances of seeing wildlife.
In the winter, ice skate on the outdoor rinks in Emsdale and Novar (both just a 5 minute drive away), or on the rink and trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park (just a 10 minute drive away). Go snow shoeing or cross country skiing around the cottage area, or on the trails at Arrowhead Provincial Park. For downhill skiiers, Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area is just 25 minutes away. Snowmobilers will enjoy easy access to the snowmobile trails.
