Barely an hour’s drive from Toronto, this charming waterfront cottage feels like a real escape. Nestled out on a point off a private lane, we just rebuilt ... now we have a contemporary 3 bedroom, open concept cottage with an amazing covered back deck. Great room and dining room with wood burning fireplace. Luxury bathroom and a cook's kitchen. Lake views are amazing. Located on the South-Eastern shore of Lake Simcoe you will witness sunsets so stunning you will think you are on the ocean. Watch the sun go down from the big picture window, or take a cocktail down to the deck and say cheers to the seagulls that come to dance at every sunset. Waves can get big and beautiful after a storm but most of the time the water is calm and kid-friendly.
The soft pebble beach starts off shallow and descends gradually, perfect for swimmers of all ages. The cottage itself is artfully decorated, with an open concept living room with fireplace & cathedral ceiling combined with the dining room over looking the with a large harvest table (comfortably seats 8) and every well appointed kitchen, amazing marble clad bathroom and 3 bedrooms. The master has a king bed, the other 2 have a double bed. There is also a small bunky down by the lake with bunk-beds , great for teens who need a bit of space!
Large screenTVs with Netflix access and ipod player. BBQ. Canoe & kayak. Hammock for summer reading. Basketball net. Multiple golf course within ten minutes drive. Casino Rama half an hour away. Simcoe one of Canada's best windsurfing/kitesurfing spots... our own 'Canadian Hole' ten minutes away!!

Kid friendly beach. Less than 6' deep up to approximately 25-30' from shore. 60' of private shore front. Soft pebble beach; just like Nice. Clean and clear water. No weeds. Water temperature is perfect for swimming. Big lake feel but very safe and accessible.

Exactly what we were hoping for
We stayed for a few days around Christmas. It was pretty there in the snow (saw fox), with a beautiful lake view. The house is very well-appointed, highly functional, and what might be called cabin-elegant -- something you might see in an architectural magazine. We hope to try it again in the Summer, sometime.
Came here with my family for a 2 night stay in October. The house is very clean, beds are comfortable, and kitchen is well equipped. My three year old niece had a great time by the water and running around the yard. Liam is really professional and easy to communicate with. This house is truly a gem! Nothing beats being by the fire under the stars, listening to the waves and making smores. Would come back again and again:)
This was a very enjoyable stay. Many comforts of home. House is secluded by shrubs and trees giving the appearance of a secluded cottage. Modern appliances are located throughout the house.
Wonderful stay on a beautiful property
My family had an amazing week at this place. Great mix of rest & relaxation and activity with a large yard and private beach. Lots of convenient nearby towns to visit for grocery or entertainment.
Liam was very responsive to every need very quickly.
I would highly recommend this place.
Lovely modern lakeside cottage near to Toronto
A great place for a few days away, without a long drive from Toronto or having to bring linens and towels. Nice, well-equipped and tastefully furnished cottage with garden leading down to the lake. The beach was very small (perhaps more so because of recent high-water levels) and a bit tricky to get down to with small children, and not visible from the house-garden area. Quiet and private with gorgeous sunsets every evening. The owner was very helpful and easily contactable.
Beautifull location, well equipped and quiet. The sounf of the waves at night makes you believe that you are sleeping beside the ocean. The lake water is clear and we enjoyed swimming everyday.
