Description: 

NEWLY LISTED - March 2020

Tucked into 3 acres of land, this gorgeous 4-season 2,200 sq. ft., 3 bedroom cottage and Bunkie sit on the tranquil shores of Halls Lake. Located in beautiful Haliburton County, the current owners chose the newly built cottage to be their first cottage as it offered all the modern conveniences and comforts of home and so much more!

As you enter the cottage you will be greeted by fabulous lake views from a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The open concept kitchen/dining/living room is tastefully designed with cottage country chic furnishings and décor accents. With a soaring pine cathedral ceiling and rich laminate wood flooring, this main living area is spacious yet warm and inviting. Whether preparing meals, dining or watching a movie, you will have peaceful views from anywhere you choose to settle in.

A generously sized lake-facing master bedroom, with its own 3-piece ensuite bathroom rounds out the main level and 2 beautifully decorated bedrooms and a 4-piece bathroom are on the upper level. The lakeside Bunkie is also a great place for the teens to sleep, providing a little more privacy.

The property has so many places to choose from to sit back and relax and enjoy the great outdoors, whether basking in the sun, cooling off in the shade or making and eating meals. With a southeast exposure, start your days off with an early morning coffee on the lakeside deck and behold spectacular sunrises! With 2 kayaks, a canoe and a paddleboard at your disposal, this is the best time of day to get out on the water for a paddle, when the lake is at its calmest. The ease of access to Halls Lake makes it a popular fishing destination, with smallmouth bass and lake trout being the most popular catches. An interesting note about Halls Lake is that there is a hole in one part of the lake that is supposedly bottomless, giving this lake the distinction of being one of the deepest in North America. There are also great sandy beaches around Halls Lake that are accessible to cottage goers.

When not relaxing at the cottage, there are a multitude of great spots to explore in the surrounding area. Just south on Highway 35 is small batch brewery, Boshkung Brewing Co. has local fare and great tasting beer. Kawartha Dairy Minden is just 10 minutes south - to many cottagers and summer visitors stopping for an ice cream cone at this nostalgic location is an essential part of summer. Just 30 km north on Highway 35 to the quaint village of Dorset you will find the historic Robinsons General Store and the Dorset Look Out with breathtaking 360 degree views from the observation deck of this historic tower that stands 465 feet above Lake of Bays. Sail across the smooth waters of beautiful Lake of Bays aboard the historical SS Bigwin, offering one-hour public cruises in June through to October or launch your boat for big lake boating. East of the cottage visit the beautiful town of Haliburton, offering a Farmer's Market on Tuesday and music in the park on Tuesday evenings. For those vacationing in the winter months, there is an abundance of winter activities to participate in at a variety of nearby destinations; Frost Centre ski and snow trails, snowmobile trails, ice fishing on Halls Lake. Sir Sam's has downhill skiing. Dog sledding at Winterdance Dog Sled Tours on Eagle Lake.

No matter how you spend your days, head back to the cottage for a BBQ dinner on the deck and then gather around the fire pit to reminisce about the day’s adventures while roasting marshmallows. Take time to enjoy all that cottage life has to offer and relax at this lakeside gem.
