3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With 212' Of Private Waterfront
About Rennie Johnson
After spending a couple of years seriously looking for the perfect cottage, we finally found it. John and I were looking for a peaceful place that could fulfill our long list of 'must haves'. When we found this place, we knew this was it. The lake has been the perfect getaway from reality for us. Landlocked lake, calm waters, privacy, beautiful waterfront, nearby town with all the amenities. It was love at first sight for us. This cottage has been a great place to bring our families together and create memorable memories while enjoying beautiful nature on a pristine lake. We look forward to hosting you so that you may as well enjoy this natural beauty and create your own lifetime family memories.
Rennie Johnson purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Rennie Johnson chose Highlands East
Having travelled Hwy 400 for many years, we knew we did not want to sit in traffic jams to go up north. Just over 2 hours northeast of Toronto, Haliburton Highlands offers beautiful scenery, minimal traffic and several different routes so that you are never stuck in traffic. The drive up is part of our vacation experience.
What makes this Cottage unique
Having rented cottages ourselves over the years, we created a list of what we did not want in a cottage. What we did want was a cottage with good year round access, steps from the parking area to the cottage and a gentle slope to the water. Privacy and beautiful waterfront was a must have for us. Clear clean water for swimming with no weeds. As a bonus, we found beautiful hiking and biking trails and have found some wonderful neighbours.

Amazing Vacation Spot!
This was a wonderful cottage! It had everything we wanted and needed in a "home away from home". I think Rennie and John have thought of every convenience and included it in the cottage stay...anything you would need for any meal prep, and outdoor and indoor relaxation. We all slept comfortably and the cottage (inside) temp was easy to moderate given the fans in each room. The lake was beautiful to swim in and we took advantage of the kayaking and paddle-boating available to us. We would love to come back again!
Thank you! We are so pleased that you enjoyed a wonderful week with your family. Our goal is to make your vacation as worry free and relaxing as possible as vacations should be. We would love to have you back!
Great week away in cottage country
This is our second stay at this cottage and it doesn't disappoint. We had absolutely perfect weather all week and the lake was clear and warm (80 degree F). It is located conveniently close to Haliburton.
The cottage is very well outfitted with everything you need and it is very open and comfortable. The shaded deck overlooking the water was our favourite spot!
My only concern is that they haven't trained the big smallmouth bass to bite my lure...it's a mystery.
Thanks John and Rennie, we hope to see this cottage again next summer.

Excellent cottage, well built and maintained. Everything you need for a relaxing time at the cottage
So glad you had a great weekend, and that we have achieved our goal of providing everything you need for a relaxing vacation.
The cottage was everything we expected.
Awesome spot for getaway. The view of the fall colours was breathtaking from the deck.
We enjoyed the beautiful indoor fireplace on the cool evenings. Cottage was very comfortable. Everything we needed was there, even games and puzzles. Great memories for our family reunion.
We couldn't be happier that you had such a wonderful family reunion. We strive to provide our guests with everything they need to have a restful and fun filled vacation. You had an amazing week of warm weather to enjoy the outdoors on the deck. We look forward to hosting you again!
We (a family of four) really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It had everything we needed and more! The owners were great.
It was our pleasure having you and your family as our guests. We hope to see you again.
Stormy Lake? More like Sunny Lake!
We very much enjoyed a sunny, relaxing week at this cottage. The lake was clear and warm and the upper deck is nothing short of spectacular. The cottage is very well equipped and easily accessible to Haliburton for shopping. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. We were thankful for the many ceiling fans throughout as we had a couple of humid nights. The two Weber barbecues (one in the screened in porch) and the additional half bathroom were a nice touch as well. Overall, we had a very memorable time at your cottage! Thanks again.
So pleased you had a great week with your family. The weather certainly cooperated with you. The deck is a recent addition offering a great view of the lake in a spacious area with a combination of sun or shade all day long. We enjoyed having you as our guests and welcome you back any time.
