Tucked into a well-treed half acre lot, this lovely 1,500 sq. ft., 2 level, 3 bedroom cottage sits perched above the pristine waters of beautiful Kawagama Lake.
The owner has a long history on the lake and has been going there since he was born as extended family owned a cottage nearby. With so many fond childhood memories, along with loving the seclusion of this area, finding the perfect family cottage on this amazing lake was a dream come true.
As you enter the cottage from the back door and step into the open concept kitcken/dining/living area, you are immediately drawn into serene tree-top views out to the lake from a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The pine cathedral ceilings along with pine walls, wood parquet flooring, wood stove and comfortable furnishings makes this cozy area the perfect family gathering place for meals and relaxing while watching movies. 2 bedrooms and a 2-piece bathroom round out this main level.
The lower level has a 3rd bedroom, a 4-piece bathroom, a laundry room and a family room with a woodstove and direct walk-out to the stairs that take you down to the waterfront.
The entire family can spread out on the large L-shaped deck for any or all meals and there is a screened-in gazebo at one end of the deck that will allow you to enjoy being in the great outdoors even on inclement days.
Head down to the dock for morning coffees and take in the breathe-taking wide open panoramic views from here. Its northern exposure has views of mainly crown land and this part of the lake has very little boat traffic adding to the sereneness and enhancing the haunting call of the loons or occasional owl.
All of Kawagama Lake’s water flows from Algonquin lakes, just to the north, so it’s very clean with no weeds, making it ideal for swimming. If you choose to rent or bring your own boat, you will enjoy endless hours of boating not only on Kawagama Lake but there is access to both Bear Lake and Fletcher’s Bay as well. Kawagama Lake is the largest lake in the Haliburton Highlands being over 12 kms. long and 4 kms. at its widest point, with over 133 kms. of shoreline and uninhabited islands and lots of bays to explore.
Enjoy walks or runs on the quiet back roads or bring your mountain bike and get in a good ride. 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 with an eclectic grocery store. The Dorset scenic outlook is also definitely worth checking out. For longer day trips, venture out to popular Algonquin Park.
This area is truly for nature lovers who enjoy peace and quiet…so what are you waiting for!
