About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Lakefront Cottage, Sleeps 12-14 People

Large lakefront cottage, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a large open concept kitchen, living and dining room, as well as outdoor dining area on the patio. The cozy living room has a beautiful fireplace. The top floor is a large open concept room with a pull-out sofa bed, tv, billiards table and Foosball table.

The cottage is fully winterized, with heated floors throughout. It was custom built with 'green' energy efficient principles in mind, including the use of solar panels on the roof.

Outside, there is a large patio area with a barbeque and outdoor dining table. A large firepit is great for evening bonfires. There is a basketball net with plenty of room for outdoor activities. The cottage is located on a private lake in a quiet bay, which is great for swimming and safe for children (as few boats venture into the bay area). Kayaks, paddleboat, canoe, and tin boat are also available for use on the lake.

Located approximately 15 minutes from the town of Kinmount, where there are local restaurants and bars, as well as grocery stores, LCBO, Beer Store, clothing shops and a movie theatre. There are other activities available in the vicinity, including antique shops, go-karts, berry and apple picking, and horseback riding.

In the winter, the bay can be cleared off and used for ice skating and pond-hockey depending on the ice thickness. The surrounding area is beautiful, great for walks, hiking and bike riding.

Coming back again and again and....

  • 5 of 5

I’m a regular cottage renter and have seen many good and some seriously not so good cottages. The Polis cottage is by far the best I’ve rented and now I’m a regular Polis cottage renter. Now I go to the cottage throughout the year rather than just summer time. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors…you can have your quite time or join your family and friends. Breakfast on the dock is relaxing and amazing. Huge deck, fire pit, dock, games in the so-called attic…major highlights of the cottage. Open concept kitchen-dining room-living room. Forget anything? No worries, Minden is close by with grocery stores, LCBO, department store, etc. Always have a great time at the Polis cottage.

This cottage has everything you need for a relaxing retreat from the city! Right by the water with a gorgeous dock and huge patio. There were lots of bedrooms to choose from for couples, singles and kids. Great living space and huge kitchen. Super clean and cozy. I would absolutely recommend it!
