About This Cottage

Do you like a view from the deck to the lake? A spacious yard? A sandy shallow water entry for toddlers? A comfy place to stay with a town not too far away? This one will check those boxes. We're happy to be able to offer Birchmount.

Located just a couple of kilometres from the village of Minden Hills, Birchmount suits small to medium-size families quite well.

The entry to the cottage brings you from the entry hall into the kitchen. This level will likely be where mom and dad will spend their time. It has two bedrooms (one of which has a small alcove sleeping area with a single bed off it), a living room, the kitchen and dining areas and the 4-piece bath. The dining room and the 2 bedrooms both enjoy lake views.

Working from home? Why not work from the cottage. Birchmount now includes Internet and Netflix.

Downstairs your will find another bedroom and a large family/sitting area. There is also a laundry area here, tucked away behind curtains. The floor is painted concrete - cool on hot summer days with area rugs for comfort and insulation in cooler times. There is also a sitting room on this level with a sectional, queen pullout bed.

If it's summertime, you're here for the water. A side-to-side traverse down a sloped yard (we do not recommend a straight-down approach) brings you to the waterfront area. Here you will find a grassy lawn taking you to the water's edge, with a shallow sandy entry, gradually deepening for those who want some deeper water. There is a paddleboat and some inflatable water toys for you and the kids. Passing afternoons here by the shore with the breeze gently blowing through the birches is not a bad way to spend some hard-earned rest time.

If you are here in the winter and the lake has frozen over, the slope provides a great natural spot for tobogganing.

As we mentioned, the town of Minden Hills is close by and has all you need in terms of groceries, restaurants, ice cream spots and scenic walkways. Blairhampton is close by for the golfers in your group.

Important notes.

The cottage is on County Road 21. You may notice some traffic noise, especially on the road side of the cottage, but the cottages and land severely curtail the noise on the waterfront side.

Trivia

Minden is named after a town in the North Rhine–Westphalia federal state in Germany. It was first surveyed in 1858. Before that, the settlement was called Gull River. Settlers were first drawn to the region (via the Bobcaygeon Road, an original colonization road), because of its timber resources. The town lies on the banks of the Gull River and during the 19th and 20th centuries, loggers used the river to move timber to sawmills downstream.
