NEWLY LISTED - JULY 2017
"What a great place to wake up in!" This one liner from visiting family members to the owners the evening after they arrived, sums it all up! Welcome to a slice of cottage country heaven, about 2.5 hours from Toronto and just 15 minutes away from the great town of Parry Sound, yet you will enjoy the tranquilty of this serene cottage setting and feel far from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Perched above the beautiful shores of Otter Lake, this classic northern Ontario cottage is primed to create fun family memories to last a lifetime. Whatever experience your family is looking for, there is a place for you to make it a reality!
This wonderful 2 storey cottage is laid out perfectly for one or two families with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the main level and 1 bedroom and a bathroom on the lower level. The main level living space is bright and spacious with warm wood floors and walls and gorgeous pine cathedral ceilings. Both levels have lake facing family rooms with the quieter upper level catering to the adults and the lower level entertainment room for the kids. The kitchen and dining areas are on the main level, both looking out to the lake through a wall of floor to ceiling windows, making meal preparations and indoor dining a treat.
But it is the great outdoors that will bring endless hours of fun in the sun from a variety of chosen locations. The deck expands the length of the cottage with a BBQ, dining table with chairs and a lounge chair with tree-top views of the lake. From the walk-out on the lower level there is quick access to the stairs down to the lake to the pièce de résistance large dock with a U-shaped slip for your boat.
Facing southeast, there is sun on the dock from sunrise to mid-afternoon and plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy! Even if you tire of the sun there is a shaded deck mid-way up to the cottage where you can cool off on the swing chair without having to leave the calming lake views. The family will definitely find hours of joy heating up in the lakeside sauna and then jumping into the refreshing lake or diving and swimming into the deep water off of the dock for hours on end.
Explore the shores with the canoe, rowboat or paddleboat at your disposal, especially in the early morning when the lake is calm and the loons tend to make their appearance making it even more magical. Test your fishing skills right off of the dock or in the rowboat where you will most likely catch bass, pike and trout.
If you can tear yourself away from the cottage, head into Parry Sound where you will find all shopping amenities, quaint shops, book stores, great restaurants and take-out options. Parry Sound is the home of the 30,000 Island Queen Cruise scenic tour and the "Festival of the Sound" (late July to mid August) which features both classical and jazz music in the beautiful Charles Stockey concert hall. The area also features many golf courses, one being the award-winning Ridge at Manitou.
End your days back at the cottage, post BBQ dinner, gathered around the fire pit and reminisce about the days adventures while roasting marshmallows. The only problem about your stay at this cottage is you won’t be ready to leave!
