The cottage is on a sandy beach which is shared amongst the neighbouring properties. The lake is spring-fed and warm. It is a quiet, small lake. A beautiful oasis. From the deck look out onto a quiet sandy beach and enjoy the sunrise. Located next door to the cottage is Awenda Provincial Park with great hiking and biking trails. Awenda is located on Georgian Bay with miles of sandy beaches and small creeks. In the winter Awenda has groomed cross-country ski trails or there is cross-country skiing on the lake. The cottage is located within 30 minutes of downhill skiing at Moonstone or Horseshoe Valley ski resorts. If you are a biker or skier this is the cottage for you!
Penetanguishene and Midland are within 10 minutes driving distance from the cottage or 30 minutes biking distance. In town, there are tennis courts, funky coffee shops and places to eat not to mention the new Arts Centre that has just opened in Midland. There are also historical sites like Saint Marie Among the Hurons and Discovery Harbour. The area boasts local organic farms, farmers markets and fresh fish from Georgian Bay. There is always something exciting and new to do in this area.
The sauna and the jacuzzi tub make the cottage like a spa or retreat centre. The large dining room with the harvest and large kitchen with an island -- wonderful place for big dinners and gatherings....moreless

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We recently bought this cottage. We have had a cottage in this region for the past 5 years. We sold the smaller cottage to buy this much bigger cottage so that we can accomodate more friends and families when we are at the cottage. The cottage is a great place for entertaining and spending time with friends and families. Also, Awenda is a great bonus! We spend a lot of time hiking, biking and skiing in the park. We love it!!!
Why the Owner Chose Penetanguishene: The location!!!! Depending where you live in Toronto it is between a 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Toronto. It is so close that sometimes we just go up for the night. Also, we love being close to a town with 24 hour shopping, great food and ammenities. We love the local restaurants and fresh farm produce that is available within 10 minutes of the cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The cottage is located on a small, beautiful spring-fed lake. It is wonderful to swim across the lake. We also love going to Georgian Bay to enjoy the big lake with great waves, swimming and long walks on pristine sandy beaches. It is the best of both worlds -- the big lake with the long sandy beaches and a small, more intimate lake experience. You can also enjoy drinking water from our well. It has been tauted as some of the best water in the world!
