Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Glenn and Christine are professionals, working in Toronto and Montreal. They first purchased a cottage a few years ago, but desired a larger lake and a property for retirement one day. They have 3 almost grown kids and a very old dog, named Sandy. They love spending their time at their lakefront home, with or without guests. When there are guests, there is usually more than 15!
Why the Owner Chose Haliburton: We looked at more than 100 cottages in person and likely thousands online. We had rented a cottage on Drag a few years ago and fell in love with the lake. We had actually given up on changing cottages, but one day found this one, and that was it. It is quiet, private, exceptionally well built, big enough for everyone and on a spectacular lot with a beautiful waterfront - all 4 minutes from town and only 2 hours from home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: This home was built by a builder for his retirement. It is fantastically constructed with every detail addressed. There's a kitchen built for an army, a sitting area for quietly reading or listening to the stereo and a great room for enjoying the floor to ceiling stone fireplace. The rec room in the basement is a place for the kids to 'hide' with TV, DVDs and a ton of games. The gas fireplace in the rec room keeps the lower level cozy as well. The master and ensuite is a dream and there's a full laundry upstairs. Four additional bedrooms and 3 more bathrooms complete the package. The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher, microwave, fridge, stove and pantry. Off of the kitchen is a screened-in sunroom to enjoy the lake views and breezes, without the threat of bugs. Out front is a beautiful porch swing and a large firepit.
