Schweier Cottage - Peterborough

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps 10, Beach, A/C, Walk-In Entry, Fire Pit, Great Fishing, Pet Friendly

This cottage is unique in that there are two separate residences but they are still together which gives you your own space while still being together! It is located on the Trent Severn Waterway System in the Kawartha Lakes Region. It is one hour door to door from Oshawa, and no need to fight any traffic! The cottage faces the east so let the kids sleep, grab a coffee sit on the deck for unbelievable morning sunrises. The property is flat to enjoy hours of outdoor activities and fun. There is a fire pit near the shoreline, which also offers a beach for the little ones to splash and play and for adults to put chairs in to cool off. This cottage is an amazing place for creating memories!

Pigeon Lake is amazing for fishing, so imagine catching Muskie, Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Walleye, Bluegill, Perch and Crappie, sometimes right off the dock! Bring your rod, bait, tackle, fishing license and camera!

My group stayed at the Schweier cottage over the long weekend, and we had a great experience. It came equipped with pretty much everything we needed to feel at home. Since it was a hot and humid weekend, the air conditioning was key. This location was perfect for fishing - we caught a few largemouth bass right off the dock. The owner & Ken were very responsive with any questions I had during our stay, making it stress-free. I would definitely consider booking the Schweier cottage again in the future. -Stephanie H.
