Welcome to this gorgeous 1,700 sq. ft. 3 bedroom cottage and lakeside bunkie on the tranquil shores of Fletcher Lake. Nestled on 1 acre of well treed land, on a quiet peninsula with only a few other cottages on it, makes this vacation destination the perfect cottage country escape.
Recently renovated, both inside and out, the cottage has all the modern conveniences of home and so much more! The interior is exquisitely designed with a multitude of floor to ceiling windows and skylights, providing soft ambient light throughout, making it warm and inviting.
The open concept kitchen/dining/living room offers a natural flow from one room to the next with stunning views out to the lake. The kitchen is every chef's dream, with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, apron front double bowl sink, a kitchen breakfast counter and plenty of granite countertop for prepping meals. The dining area with a beautiful large harvest table is great for big feasts and family game nights. The living room is well appointed and tastefully decorated with a soaring cathedral ceiling and striking stone fireplace, emanating comfort and ease. Rounding out the main level are 2 spacious bedrooms, a 5-piece bathroom and laundry room.
The large master bedroom in the loft is an oasis unto itself with its own 4-piece ensuite, complete with a freestanding soaker tub. Enjoy the fantastic view out to the lake with multiple skylights for stargazing.
Start your mornings on the deck, enjoying a hearty breakfast while taking in peaceful lake views as the wind gently blows through the towering pine trees. Gentle pathways, steps and small bridges, with natural landscaping and wildflower gardens, lead you down to the different waterfront areas expanding 375 feet. To one side of the cottage, a path will take you down to the lakeside bunkie, a great spot for the tweens to sleep and it has a shallow sandy cove for the little ones to splash and play while providing an easy walk into the lake for the rest of the family. From there, stroll back towards the cottage and then down to the expansive dock, with plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and relax. With a southern exposure enjoy all day sunning and with the water being 7-8 feet deep at the end of the dock, jump into the refreshing crystal clear waters to cool off.
For a change of pace, take a day trip into the charming village of Dorset with a wonderful waterfront restaurant, café, ice cream parlour and local shops including the best eclectic Robinson’s General Store. The Dorset scenic outlook is also definitely worth checking out. For the fitness buffs, hike the trail to the top of Bear Mountain for incredible vistas or climb the famous Dorset Lookout Tower which stands at 465 feet and gives you 360 degree views of Lake of Bays. For longer day trips, venture out to popular Algonquin Park or Limberlost and WildlifeReserve for more hiking adventures.
No fun-filled day is complete without a delicious BBQ dinner back at the cottage and for dessert gather round the fire pit, roasting marshmallows while planning for the next days adventures!
