Description: 

If you are looking for not only a fantastic family cottage but an area that caters to an abundance of family appealing attractions and events, look no further! Located on tranquil Oblong Lake on a 1.5 acres of well treed land, this beautiful four season 3,600 sq.ft., 5 bedroom cottage is a family dream vacation destination come true.

The owners chose the lot because of the stately pine trees and that it was flat with a shallow sandy entry to the lake which would serve well for young children and older family members. The fact that there are only 5 cottages on their side of the lake and only 3 on the north side, 4 on the south side and zero across the way, definitely sold them knowing that they were investing in a quiet lake community.

An interesting note is that they accumulated all the stones themselves from the lake and surrounding area that were used on the exterior of the cottage and in the great room’s fireplace. Needless to say, much love and attention was personally invested in the design and feel of the cottage.

The interior of the cottage is full of magnificent warm rich wood from floor to ceiling with cottage country chic furnishings and decor accents. The open concept kitchen/dining/living room is stunning with cathedral ceilings in the great room, a center piece stone floor to ceiling fireplace and an abundance of large picture windows framing fabulous views of the natural surrounding land and lake.

All five bedrooms are cool, comfortable and inviting with 2 on the main level and 3 on the lower level. The spacious lake facing master bedroom and ensuite is on the main level with a walkout to a private deck. The screened-in Muskoka Room on the main level, leading out to the deck, is ideal for relaxing and reading and playing table games on inclement days without feeling like you're missing out on the great outdoors. The lower level has a fun filled family room, complete with a ping pong table, foosball table, TV/DVD with an extensive DVD library and a sauna to indulge in after a day of active fun in the sun.

The wonderful bonus of being on Oblong Lake is that it is a quiet lake with the option of visiting the larger more active Haliburton Lake, navigation between the two lakes is great. Popular with anglers, Oblong Lake is a very deep clear lake and offers plenty of rock structure along the shoreline, perfect for bass. There is also still a natural population of lake trout. Brad and Maria, at the local marina, are amazingly helpful and you can also get a few essential groceries there as well as ice cream and the newspaper.

If you can tear yourself away from the cottage and all that it has to offer, there is a multitude of places to explore and enjoy! Haliburton Lake has a public beach with a playground, weekly baseball for the kids and swimming lessons are available. The Haliburton School of the Arts is a great attraction in the area, offering many summer courses including mosaics, kids cooking, glass blowing and soap making. Head Lake in Haliburton holds many wonderful events in the summer such as Art in the Park, a Carnival and there is a weekly Farmers Market.

From the cottage it is but a 15 minute drive away to Sir Sam’s for downhill skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. Also just a 15 minute drive away is Moosewoods with groomed cross country ski trails. But you don’t even have to jump into the car to find great roads for cycling that can be had right from your doorstep. On Tuesday night there is kids bingo just a 5 minute walk from the cottage with great prizes to be had.

But no matter what or where your day’s adventures take you, ending your evenings by the lakeside fire pit is a must. Nature at its finest with your backdrop music being the haunting call of the loons, roasting marshmallows and sharing the days priceless memories. Could it possibly get any better?!
