Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Georgian Bay and part time at the cottage, so it's fully furnished and has all the comforts of home! I'm an artist, so the cottage is my art gallery as well. We love sharing our space with people who are travelling, or just want to enjoy the quiet of the country holiday, since we appreciate the same when we are here.

Why the Owner Chose Penetanguishene:

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Wildlife, birds, trees, silence, escape and just 2 hours drive from Toronto- no stress! Lakeview Cottage is a wonderful place to relax and unwind, without giving up the comforts of home. We've made it cosy and convenient to stay here with the whole family, and the surrounding wilderness makes life make sense. Awenda Provincial Park is just around the corner, so you have easy access while you're visiting. Weekends are wonderful year-round, with skiing and snow mobile trails at the doorstep. Come for a relaxed weekend, or visit St. Marie Among the Hurons for their seasonal specials, or photograph birds in Wye Marsh, and visit the Martyr's shrine. Year round wilderness heaven -and town is just 10 minutes away if you're in the mood for a great coffee shop or a movie on a rainy day.
