Property description

Our four bedroom two bathroom cottage would be great for a family reunion or a shared vacation with another family. With six beds the cottage comfortably sleeps eight people.

We've posted a lot of pictures to help describe our cottage property, take a look at all the listing information and let us know if we can help with any other details.

The outside prperty is ideal for summer swimming and boating. There is a large dock that extends out from the shore about sixty feet, and half way out there is a big deck with swim stairs. There is also a comfortable outdoor patio area with a table, 6 chairs and gas BBQ, this is at the same level as the kitchen for easy outdoor dining.

The cottage has a beautiful heated sunroom and dining area facing west across the lake. During the fall it is a comfortable spot to look out onto the lake and see the colour of the trees on the opposite side of Lake Couchiching. There are sometimes beautiful sunsets on the lake.

There is a full modern kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, and fridge with ice-maker. Year round central heat, A/C, and WIFI . Tastefully decorated and clean.

There are four bedrooms, two main floor bedrooms (one with on-suite bathroom) and two upstairs bedrooms. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and one of the upstairs bedrooms has two additional single beds.

Located an hour and a half north of Toronto it is just outside of the village of Washago, the property can be easily reached from Toronto by traveling up Hwy 400, or avoid the big highway and travel north along highway 12 north and highway 169.

It's a twenty minute drive to the towns of Gravenhurst and Orillia or fifteen minutes to the entertainment at Casino Rama. Boats are available for rent at the local marinas for anyone wishing to travel through the nearby lock and along the Severn waterway towards Georgian Bay.

The water at the end of the dock is about four feet deep, boaters need to know the preferred access route before approaching the dock. There is also a small beach area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in Toronto in the Danforth Riverdale area. We love to spend weekends at the cottage, skiing in the winter and fishing in the summer and hanging out on the dock. We are still working and raising our family and over the summer we only have a couple of weeks available to enjoy the cottage. So when we can't be there we like to make it available for others to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Washago, ON, Canada:
We have been cottaging in this area for many years and enjoy that there are lots of local attractions to keep us busy year round. Our cottage is rented mostly by families on summer vacation or small groups looking for a peaceful retreat. This would not be a good party house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage sits right on the edge of the water and the sunroom offers a 160 degree view of Lake Couchiching. The dock is unique as it extends over 60' off the shore over Canadian shield rock, but has a large seating area that receives the sun early and lasts throughout the day. It's a great place to relax.
