NEWLY LISTED - April 2020
Welcome to your home away from home on beautiful spring-fed Little Whitefish Lake! The beauty of Ontario cottage country with all the conveniences of city life (and so much more), make this a fantastic vacation destination! This cozy, 2,400 sq. ft., 2 level, 4 bedroom cottage is nestled on 2.5 acres of well-treed land allowing for great privacy and solitude.
From the moment you step inside you can feel the love the cottage owners have brought to this warm and inviting cottage. Recently purchased, the owners, a Designer and Chef duo, renovated the cottage each bringing the flair of their professions to it.
Needless to say, the kitchen is every chef’s dream with stainless steel Bosch appliances, a glass cooktop, double ovens and plenty of counter space for prepping meals.
With a wall of floor to ceiling windows, the open concept kitchen/dining/living room area has fabulous views of the lake from any chosen vantage point. The vaulted tongue and groove pine ceilings in the living room, along with an abundance of comfortable seating, lends to a feeling of spaciousness making this area an ideal family gathering spot. The gorgeous stone wood-burning fire place with pine mantle, has an air-tight wood stove insert conducive to taking the chill out of those cooler seasonal evenings.
Three tastefully appointed bedrooms and a 4-piece bathroom round out the main level.
The lower level has a large semi-open bedroom with sitting area, 2-piece bathroom, laundry room and a spacious family room with a direct walk-out leading down to the waterfront. The main living area offers family entertainment value with a 70” HD Smart TV and a large sectional couch for movie night in front of the fireplace. The pièce de résistance, just off of the family room, is the sauna with a separate shower to help you unwind from a full day of outdoor activities and to get you ready for a good nights sleep.
But it is the great outdoors that will bring you hours of fun in the sun from a variety of chosen locations, with wonderful lake views from the deck or down on the dock. Located on a point, with 350 feet of water frontage, the property has several nooks for discovering new surrounding views, and watching wildlife un-detected! The owners have noted that there is a heron that visits regularly, in what they call “the hallow”, an area to the west of the property, right at the lake, under a glorious hemlock. They also often wake up to find loons sunning themselves on the dock after having listened to them calling to each other at sunrise. There’s plenty of property to discover for adventure-loving kids and the lake is very child friendly for swimming and splashing around.
With 2 paddleboards, 2 kayaks and a canoe at your disposal, be sure to get out and explore the lake, especially in the morning when the waters are at their calmest. For avid fishermen, whitefish and bass will be your catch of the day and if you bring or rent a boat, Little Whitefish Lake is part of a 3 lake chain with Clear Lake and Big Whitefish Lake so you can get miles of boating in.
For a change of pace, 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. You are also minuutes from the quaint village of Rosseau and the area offers plenty of great golf courses.
The only problem about your stay at this cottage is you won't be ready to leave!
