Property description

We have rebuilt a gorgeous custom 2009 Linwood home on our 120' waterfront lot. The home is approx 2500 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 patio/deck areas, 2 driveways & an amazing shoreline.

We are a family of 4. We have been renting for 15 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have 9 and 4 year old sons.

We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. The fishing is great off the dock. It is very safe for kids swimming. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lake house year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.

The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends.

The Main Level:

The main level has a huge Great Room that is open to the dining room, spacious deck and large fully equipped kitchen. The BBQ is right off the dining room & the deck is huge with amazing views. The great room has a gas fireplace. There is a 32" flat screen TV and DVD player, 4 couches and lots of space to relax & view the lake. The master bedroom has a king bed and ensuite bath (clawfoot tub, glass shower & huge vanity). There is also a laundry room with a washer & dryer and storage that leads to the garage. This level sleeps 2 people.

The Upper Loft:

The upstairs loft has 2 bedrooms. The first is a guest room with a romantic queen bed & window seat. Secondly, we have a bunk room with a set of bunk beds and 2 single beds. There is a full bathroom upstairs. This level sleeps 6.

The Lower Level Walk Out:

The lower level walks out to the lake & patio space. We have 2 bedrooms on this level. One has a queen bed & the other is a double. The sectional in the second living area has a queen bed pullout. There is a full bathroom on this level as well. This level sleeps 4-6.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a family of 4. We have been renting for 15 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have a 9 and 4 year old son. We currently reside in Toronto and both work in IT. One day we plan to retire in our beloved lakefront home.

Why the Owner Chose Douro-Dummer, ON, Canada:
We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. There are no houseboats on our lake, few skidoos & great fishing. Our lake is however fed by Stoney Lake and so there is a boat launch across the street onto Stoney Lake for those days we want to boat on the Trent Severn lake system. The drive is quick. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lakehouse year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We think one of the most unique benefits of this property is the design. Given we had owned the cottage for 6 years, when it came to building, we knew exactly how we wanted to use the new space. The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends. The BBQ is right off the dining room & kitchen - the deck is huge with amazing views. The lakefront is fantastic for kids and fishing. We can catch large & small mouth bass off the dock! We absolutely love our home and believe you will too.
