Sturgeon Lake cottage description

The Butternut Cottage is a four-season, ranch-style bungalow, located on the west-facing shore of Sturgeon Lake, about 15 minutes drive from Lindsay and 30 minutes from Peterborough. This spacious executive cottage and property are located on a quiet residential street, with cottages on both sides. The road is kept clear all winter. The lake frontage is 100 feet; the water is 3' deep off the 32' dock.

The Cottage contains four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The Cottage is equipped with central air and a heat pump; a gas fireplace in the living room as well as a pellet stove in the sun room are used for ambiance and to augment the central heating during cold winter days. The sunroom contains a five-person hot tub and games area. East and west decks allow enjoyment of morning sun and spectacular sunsets.

The very workable lakeside kitchen includes side-by-side fridge, convection oven and stove, and dishwasher and is fully equipped for for eight guests. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room, the breakfast room or on either deck.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: I am a retired engineer. I have three grown children and four young grandchildren who are the delight of my life.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sturgeon Lake:
                          I bought and renovated this cottage/house in 2002 because I loved the setting, the waterfront, the lake (for water sports and cross-country skiing), the sunsets, the decks, its proximity to my home and the ranch layout of the cottage itself. I am renting it until I fully retire and move, full time, to its location.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          I enjoy the sunsets, all year around, as the cottage faces west, overlooking Sturgeon Lake. I enjoy swimming off the dock and other water sports like canoeing. There are two decks, one on the east side for morning sun and one on the west side for afternoon sun and evening sunsets; I enjoy sitting and reading on the decks. The cottage has four very comfortable bedrooms with 'innkeeper' mattresses. I enjoy the hot tub in the evening, after a busy day of relaxing by the lake, golf at a course nearby or cross-country skiing on the lake. The kitchen includes a convection oven, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice machine, microwave oven and many small appliances; it is a delight to cook in.
