Description: 

NEWLY LISTED - January 2022   

Welcome to this cozy, 1,000 sq. ft., 2 level, 3 bedroom Viceroy-style cottage. Tucked into a half acre of mature treed land, it sits perched above the tranquil shores of Whitestone Lake, right in the heart of Ontario cottage country!

Recently purchased, the owners wanted to upgrade the cottage and bought many new items, such as the fridge, stove, Samsung TV, Weber BBQ, Hauser patio furniture and kayaks. The interior of the cottage is warm and inviting with rich dark wood floors throughout, a beautiful stone fireplace and even a daybed in the living room that makes for a perfect "curl up spot" to read a long overdue novel on a rainy day. The previous owner was a National Geographic photographer and to add to the ambiance of the interior, beautiful original photographs can be seen throughout the cottage. The main level caters to all family gatherings with an open concept kitchen/dining/living room and large picture windows framing outstanding tree-top views out to the lake. The 3 bedrooms are on the upper level with the spacious lake facing master bedroom having its own private walk-out deck.

Decks are definitely a feature at this property, with so many to choose from! Along with the upper level master bedroom deck, the cottage has a main level wrap-around deck with a Weber BBQ and dining table for lunches and dinners and midway down to the dock is an expansive split-level deck with an abundance of seating for the entire family to spread out and relax, along with a fire bowl for late night marshmallow roasting.

The dock is a great place to start your days off with your morning coffee as the mist rises off the lake and another fabulous day begins. Being in a quiet bay also makes the mornings the ideal time to head out onto the lake for a paddle with the kayaks and canoe, as the water is at its calmest then. The water is about 20 feet deep at the end of the dock so it's perfect for jumping into, to cool off on hot summer days. If you bring your own boat, the village of Dunchurch is minutes away with a full service marina for Whitestone Lake (there is also an LCBO, corner store and ice cream parlour in Dunchurch). For avid anglers, the bay opens up into a larger body of water and the fishing is great with pike, bass and walleye to be caught. For exercise enthusiasts, there are wonderful gravel roads behind the cottage to walk or run on through acres of treed lots, with some great challenging hills to conquer.

For a change of pace, take a short day trip to the town of Parry Sound, just a 30 minute drive away, where you will find quaint shops, bookstores, all shopping amenities, 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 offers plenty of golf courses and farmers markets. So much to do, so little time!
