Fully loaded is the way to describe this super pet-friendly cottage rental with a hot tub in the beautiful Kawartha region. We fell in love with this delighful cottage on the beautiful Crowe River. Great fishing, swimming, privacy, and very comfortable accommodation.
Osprey Cottage is in one of our favourite riverside locations on the gently flowing Crowe River, at the eastern edge of the Kawartha region. With a shallow beach area gently sloping out to deeper water for swimming; a south-westerly aspect for sunning and sunset viewing and great fishing right from the shore, this very attractive cottage will suit all the family. The 6-person hot tub is a great attraction for fall and winter.
This is a location for a peaceful vacation – the only access to Crowe Lake is by canoe or kayak so you won’t have the incessant buzz of seadoos to spoil the tranquillity. Just sit and watch the osprey diving for fish, enjoy the otters as they cavort in the water, and perhaps get a glimpse of the elk or deer recently seen in the woodland around the cottage.
The exterior of the cottage is lawned, with surrounding woodland, so there is plenty of room for the kids to enjoy being outside when they’re not in the water. There is plenty of patio and garden furniture on the deck and the firepit at the water’s edge will be the venue for many evenings of marshmallow roasts and fireside conversation.
The owners of this great cottage have furnished with their guests’ comfort in mind. All beds are new with top quality mattresses; the kitchen is fully equipped and the living areas having comfortable sofas and chairs. The deck houses a 6-person cedar hot tub with 36 jets and a waterfall feature.
The open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas have cathedral ceilings and skylights and windows all the way across the riverside aspect makes this space very light and airy. The large master bedroom occupies one end of the cottage, and has great views over the river, as well as an ensuite bathroom. Two more bedrooms and another bathroom are accessed off the living area. The kitchen is well equipped and has a breakfast bar with swivel stools.
A separate pantry area has another double sink unit and washer/dryer.
There’s lots to see and do in this lovely area. Provincial Parks, plenty of hiking trails, and pretty riverside towns and villages, will keep the country explorers happy, whilst the kayaks, pedalboat, canoe and fishing equipment may just keep you at the cottage. Whatever your particular country activity there is something for you here.
