                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My son and I live in Georgian Bay, and we live at the cottage, when not rented, so it's fully furnished and has all the comforts of home! We also love to travel. I'm an artist, so the cottage is my personal art gallery as well! We love sharing our space with people who are travelling, since we appreciate the same when we go away. The Cottage is also a great opportunity to host retreats of up to 24 people, since we are working in conjunction with a neighbour cottage for hosting larger group events. Just contact us for more information.

                  Why the Owner Chose Penetanguishene:
                  Our newly renovated spa retreat cottage is cosy, comfortable, with all the luxuries of home. We've just added a new kitchen, hardwood floors, and hot tub /lap pool, so there's year round swimming! It's spacious, with cathedral ceiling, an open concept living/dining/kitchen area, AC, gas furnace and fireplace, wrap-around deck with BBQ for outdoor activities. We're on Farlain Lake, and our beach is sandy and perfect for swimming! we're also just 3 minutes walk from Awenda Provincial Park, for great trail activities snow shoeing, cross country trails, and hiking along Georgian Bay. Close by are also Wye Marsh for bird watching, and 'St. Marie Among the Hurons' native village, Georgian Bay boat rides, motor boat rentals, a Sailing club, and the Martyr's Shrine, all within 20 minutes drive! We're just 2 hours from Toronto, so it's the most convenient escape to a quiet lakefront wilderness. The silence here is only broken by the sound of the loons crying or hummingbirds buzzing, or snow flakes falling on pine needles.

                  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, and the surrounding wilderness makes it all 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 trails and snow mobile trails at the doorstep. Come for a relaxed weekend, or visit St. Marie Among the Hurons for their Christmas special, or photograph birds in Wye Marsh, and visit the Martyr's shrine. Year round heaven -with town just 10 minutes away if you're in the mood for a great coffee shop or a movie!
