About This Cottage

In a picturesque river setting, with access to Belmont Lake, this cottage is a nature lovers paradise. For those who love wildlife, the river otter will keep you entertained, while the local flock of turkeys can be heard in the distance. Take to the water in one of the two adult kayaks, the canoe, paddle boat or aluminum row boat. There is even a boat launch on the property if you wish to bring your own to explore and fish with! Just a quick drive from the GTA, Deer River Retreat offers all the comforts of home for you and your family.

Once inside the cottage, you will find a large family kitchen and eating area, surrounding a wood stove. Three large bedrooms to the left of the property, offer a sleeping quarter with a jack & jill washroom. The kitchen separates the bedrooms and family room, offering fantastic views of the river. The 4-piece washroom is located off the family room, beside a laundry room that is available for your use.

An extensive collection of books, games and DVDs are available for you to enjoy in the family room and eating areas. The large gas fireplace has a beautiful stone design on the side wall, for cozy afternoons and evenings. You can even binge watch your favourite Netflix series, as the TV is equipped with Chromecast to access your accounts.

For the swimming enthusiasts, the river is 10-12 feet in the deepest area, with a dock to jump in from. If you prefer a sandy beach front, you'll be happy to see the gradual sandy entry into the water, perfect for your little ones too!

This is a pet friendly property with lots of room on the front and back lawns for playing with children and pets alike. While walking over the bridge and down the peaceful laneway, be sure to keep an eye out for local deer. Our last visit felt very much like a scene from Snow White, with all the woodland friends!

Trivia

Of all the Hastings County gold rush communities, the nearby hamlet of Cordova Mines was probably the most well known. Cordova Mines operated from 1860 on and off for about 60 years, producing both silver and gold. Gold production was by far the main commodity and more than 22,000 ounces were produced over a 50-year period. (Source Ontario Ghost Towns )
