About: Peter and Nancy have been on Stoney lake for nearly 60 years now. Peter's family bought part of the island in the 50s. Their 4 children spent many summers on the lake as have their 8 grandchildren. Peter is a former architect and built the property from barn timbers in the 70s. He also built the cabins in the same language of timber and glass, maximizing light and surrounding views. Not one tree was cut down in the process!
Why Douro-Dummer, ON, Canada:
It is a special place -- to us and so many others on Stoney Lake. The surrounding area has a rich geological, natural and cultural history with a sacred Ojibway site nearby (see the Petroglyphs). In our family, the property is now in use by a 4th generation, and maybe a 5th soon enough :) We look forward every year to connecting with island, the white pines, the ospreys and loons, as well as family and friends on the lake. It is a part of our family fabric, and for some of us, our souls.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Situated on an island point, the views to the surrounding lake are expansive and magnificent -- particularly summer sunrises and sunsets enjoyed from within the cottage, the main decks and dock. The location of the property gives it a level of privacy which is rare. Deep water surrounds the property and provides great swimming from the dock and raft. The cottage and cabins offer both spaces to meet as a larger group and privacy to retreat when needed. The property has evolved from 1975 to the latest cabin built in 2005 to accommodate the owners, their children and growing families. Major renovations were undertaken in 2010 to maintain the property. Stoney Lake has been called of the jewel of the Kawarthas and you will instantly know why when you visit. Located less than 2 hours from downtown Toronto, it is amazingly convenient to access. We have parking available at a shared family boathouse.
