All-Star Retreat

For sports-minded families, this is a luxurious away place for the ‘Home Team.’ It’s available all times of the year for every activity that comes to mind: hiking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and snowshoeing.

For the viewing type of sportsperson, there are three (count ‘em) large screen televisions, wifi internet, and indoor-outdoor sound system. Don’t forget the hot tub.

Just in case it rains, the whole downstairs area is designed for games and fun! Guests of all ages can enjoy pool and billiards, foosball, air hockey, rod hockey, basketball hoop games, darts, ping pong… even a vintage pinball machine! Also downstairs is a large TV (with DVD and satellite), plenty of comfortable seating, a work out area with a treadmill, and a walk-out to a comfortable patio area.

This outstanding four-season cottage boasts many fantastic features that will appeal to larger groups and families. Whether it’s taking in beautiful sunsets from its large westerly facing dock and deck (the latter complete with hot tub!), playing pool and pinball in its massive games room, or paddling or swimming along its 190 ft of pristine shoreline, this acre-plus property delivers!

The grounds surrounding this spacious 3200 sq ft cottage are delightfully landscaped to maximize the natural appeal of the waterfront, reached either by lovely stonework stairs or zigzagging pathways. Once there, the clear, sandy-bottomed water beckons swimmers of all ages and abilities for a dip or a paddle, while serious swimmers will enjoy the chest-high waters off the huge dock (so will those who like to fish for bass or pickerel, all plentiful here). Three kayaks (doubles and singles) are also available for those wanting to explore a little further afield (lifejackets are a must!). Exposed to the sun all day long, the dock’s also the place to catch the sunset (or do some stargazing) before toasting ‘s’mores’ over the fire pit.

This large, four-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage easily accommodates groups of up to 12 guests, and is as charming inside as it is outside. Its tall floor-to-ceiling windows let plenty of light into the kitchen and dining areas (the table extends enough to seat everyone) and offer stunning westerly views over the lake. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped with everything needed to make memorable meals. The large living room is complete with a 42” TV, DVD and satellite system, as well as a stereo with an easy-to-use speaker system that can channel your favourite tunes inside or out. A large fireplace insert adds a warm, cozy touch. The master bedroom is spacious and is as beautifully decorated as the rest of the cottage. Highlights include a large king bed, a magnificent walk-out balcony, a huge 60” TV, and a large ensuite with heated tile flooring and ‘rainfall’ shower.

Games Room
Previous guests gave this review: “We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the cottage. What we really liked about this cottage was the cleanliness of it. It was also a nice layout and gave us enough room (there was 8 of us), especially with having the games room for the kids (and dads :)) We were also very happy to see that there was a good supply of kitchen dishes, utensils, etc to use. The dock is a great set-up with plenty of room and the walk-in beach access was perfect as we had just purchased some sea-doos and used them all week!”
