About the Property

2700 Sq Ft Lakefront Cottage With 5 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Camp David is located on a beautifully treed acre of land on eagle lake. It is a perfect getaway, just 3 hours outside of Toronto, with lots of driving options to avoid cottage country traffic. The cottage is conveniently located close to Haliburton, Minden, and Algonquin park. It's an ideal spot, whether you're looking for a peaceful retreat to relax and listen to the call of the loons, or an action-packed vacation.

We call the master bedroom at Camp David the Presidential Suite. It’s furnished with an antique cannonball queen bed, beautiful bedside tables, and large brick fireplace. It faces Eagle Lake so you can wake up to a beautiful sunrise over the lake in the morning, and walk-out onto the large deck. The 4-piece ensuite bathroom provides the comfort of home.

There are 3 additional bedrooms on the main floor: the West Wing and Sailor's Rest each have a queen bed, and Double Trouble has 2 twin beds. The spacious 3-piece main bathroom has a stall shower. You won’t even mind doing laundry with the front-loading washer and dryer.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need including: dishwasher, electric oven and range, fridge, toaster oven, microwave oven, blender, coffee maker, electric kettle, and UV filtered water potable water throughout the cottage. The propane Barbeque is just outside on the deck. A large harvest table provides seating for 6, and can easily accommodate 10 with extra chairs from the bedrooms. If you prefer, you can take your meals outdoors at the table in the screened-in porch or on the deck.

The living room has ample seating around a brick fireplace, and cut wood for your use. The sound system has a radio, cd player, and ipod port with speaker controls for the main floor, lower level, and deck. Also, we have a Sonos sound system which will stream music from internet radio and play a large collection of music in the living room, on the deck, in the Presidential Suite, in the tub room downstairs or in the TV room downstairs.

Camp David has full WiFi capability throughout.

Overflow, the fifth bedroom, is on the lower level, and it has 2 twin beds. There's also a full spa bathroom, with full-size jacuzzi tub, large sauna, and stall shower, all welcome treats after a day on the water or on the ski slopes. A pool table, ping pong, and dart board are in the games room. The basement entertainment room has a large-screen 4K LED TV with Apple TV and streaming services (Netflix and Crave), and another brick fireplace. Bring your dvd’s to watch on the bluray player.

There is lots of fun stuff to do. You can start your day with a run, walk or bike ride just outside on the hills of Parsons Road and beyond. In the summer, spend your days on the water. The 25 yard beach offers gradual entry, perfect for younger children. The large dock area ends in water deep enough to tie off your motor boat. 2 canoes, paddle boat, sailboat, and windsurfer are available for your use, along with 2 adult mountain bikes. Try your hand at fishing. Visit Haliburton Forest, the wolf centre, or play golf at the Pinestone Inn. When evening comes, use some of the cut wood and build a fire in the outdoor fire pit, sit on the benches and enjoy a marshmallow roast!

In the summer visit Sir Sam’s a 10-minute car ride to the other side of eagle lake, for mountain biking or their excellent spa. In the winter, they offer downhill skiing with 4 chair lifts and a fully covered magic carpet. There are nearby x-country and snowshoe trails as well.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I am married to my wife Cathy. We have been together for 12 years and have a 10 year old son. Cathy and I both work in investments and finance in Toronto.

Why the Owner Chose Dysart and Others, ON, Canada:
My parents built Camp David in 1973 when I was 13 years old and it has been in our family since then. We love the place, but cannot use it for all 9 weeks of the summer or at other times due to school and work responsibilities. We get there whenever we can. There is no better place for us to relax and unwind year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Great waterfront with two main areas: Dock for boats and swimming. Beach for swimming and a fire pit. Eagle Lake warms up nicely in the summertime. Lots of water toys. Great mountain biking across the lake at Sir Sam's. Road biking is everywhere. Good hiking. Fully equipped cottage including laundry, sauna, jacuzzi tub, large screen TV, pool and ping pong table, WiFi, Sonos sound system. Screened in porch and large deck. Downhill and cross country skiing also very close by.
