Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a university professor and my co-owner is a Registered Massage Therapist. We enjoy our cottage immensely and we really look after it! When we used to rent cottages, quality was hard to find, and that is why we decided to rent ours out to others! We know that renters are looking for value and comfort - they want a clean and lovely cottage that is going to feel welcoming and relaxing. We take great pride in our cottage and rent only to people who will give the cottage the same level of care that we do.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands East, ON, Canada:
Cedar Lake is a small and very quiet lake with only 26 cottages. We had rented another cottage on the lake for years and when this one came up for sale, we jumped at it! It is a half hour drive from beautiful Algonquin park and is breathtaking year round. It is a relatively easy drive with many sites along the way. Wildlife is frequently seen on the property and along the roads on the way up. The cottagers on Cedar Lake are a strong community of people - they love their lake and they look out for each other - they are also very welcoming to renters who respect their need for quiet and relaxing time!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In the summer, enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and swimming on Cedar Lake - a clean, quiet and beautiful lake. The sun shines all day long on the beach and floating dock - yet the trees keep the cottage nice and cool for sleeping! The beach is sandy and the water is shallow for about 25 feet out from the shore... it is also weed free - perfect for small children! The fall colours in Haliburton County are absolutely stunning and the country roads provide for gorgeous and leisurely walks. The outdoor fire pit is right on the beach and is lovely on cool nights. We have a gorgeous stone fireplace to enjoy in the winter as well as snow-shoeing and cross country skiing. We are also a short drive (about 30 minutes) to Sir Sam's Ski Resort. There are several historic towns close by with museums, excellent amenities and even some excellent local restaurants if you want to get out for a night. There is also the Haliburton County fall studio tour where you'll find beautiful works by many artists and potters. And of course, beautiful Algonquin Park is just a half hour away - truly one of Canada's most beautiful national parks....
