              Car: Recommended

              Kochatka is located off the shore of Georgian Bay only an hour and a half from Toronto and 10 km North East of Wasaga beach. Driving to the house you will enjoy the lush landscape that shapes the Georgian Triangle. Enjoy sights of Deer, wild Turkey and Hawks as you drive through the country roads.

              During winter it is a perfect place for cross-country skiing on trails behind our house; only half an hour drive to Collingwood's Alpine Ski Slops, and 15 min to Horseshou Ski Club in Midland for less experienced.

              Autumn offers most beautiful sites for enthusiasts of photography and active relaxation during walks through the woods or mushroom picking.

              You will find that our home is located in nice and quite area and it is perfect place to relax with family and friends, enjoy reading a great book or taste foods of the region.

              Gorges sandy beaches are near by, entire area is very child friendly with many attractions to explore

              Here just few examples:

              Go-kart racing track in Balm Beach,

              Discovery Harbour in Perkinsfield,

              Sainte Marie among the Hurons and Huronia Museum in Midland

              I trust you will find out that there is much more to enjoy :


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I am a woman of the 21st century: self-reliant, independent and curious.I'm a mother and a designer. I have always believed that life itself is one of the greatest treasures that we have been given to enjoy. With every passing day I strive to recognize more beauty around me, no matter where I am at the moment. I am fortunate to be able to travel to many destinations on our wonderful planet. Some more exotic that the others....for example, I was always curious about desert but I never thought that I will be able to visit it one day - and then my life had lead me to Persian Gulf where I worked and lived for over 4 years :) Life is amazing with all the surprises that waiting for us every day. Today I am living between 2 continents - North America and Europe. Can't sit still for too long :) I am very conscious about our environment and I believe that we all have a responsibility to protect it for our future generations.

              Why the Owner Chose Balm Beach:
              I remember when I was searching for a property that I will like to buy... I had a list of requirements in my mind. Most important to me was location. I wanted a place that will be easy accessible from Toronto, but it would feel like a different reality all together. I wanted wilderness but safe for a small child. Close to nature but with all comforts of modern living. I was lucky that I found my perfect location, then I just redesign, remodel and renovated the place :) It took quite few years and lot of effort but I'm very happy with the results today.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              When my son was born I have purchased this house so we will have some roots somewhere, even if we kept on travelling. I have named this house KOCHATKA which means a Love Cabin in loose translation; and it represents our family love for each other and for all great things in life. The red maple tree at the front of the house is our family protector and a happy beacon. Our family is 3 person/ 3 generation combo. When I travel my mom take care of the house. When we travel all together I ask my wonderful neighbors to look over the property. We are great hosts, respectful of boundaries but very open to new experiences.
