This little paradise is the place to go if you need to get out of the city. And it’s only a two hour drive from Toronto—perfect for the weekend. Once you arrive, enjoy a drink while sitting on the patio surrounded by nature.
When you’re completely relaxed, get yourself unpacked and explore this funky and functional cottage. We love the pattern on the kitchen island, and, bonus, the space is huge!
This living room is bright and airy, thanks to walls of windows. Sit down and look out into nature, or enjoy a show on TV. There’s more than enough room for everyone to join in together.
The colourful accessories scattered throughout the cottage give every room a touch of whimsy and make us feel right at home. This master bedroom will keep you comfy and give you good dreams.
The upstairs loft is the perfect crashpad for a group of friends after a day on the lake enjoy a few drinks. There are two twins beds and a double.
One thing to keep in mind if you have a lot of guests here: there’s only one bathroom. Time your shower’s accordingly!
No matter what time of year you plan to visit, make sure you get out on the lake! For an additional fee, you can rent a canoe or paddleboard, or skate, free of charge.
Have a fun getaway!
