About This Cottage

This traditional cottage is perfect for a young family who love to have fun on the beach, swim in a clean lake or play games on a large, level lot. The location is very private, although you may see your neighbours out on the water or on their docks.

It is a friendly community surrounded by crown land with ATV and hiking trails right in your backyard. If fishing is your passion, there’s trout in the lake just waiting for your bate!

You are sure to enjoy this all one level cottage which includes a delightful screened sunroom for morning coffee and quiet reading or you can step outside onto the deck where there is a gazebo, lounging furniture and a patio table for al fresco dining. You will not be short of comfort and space.

The cottage is neatly laid out with the living, dining and kitchen across the waterside with sliding doors onto the deck. A screened sunroom offers a comfortable spot to enjoy the outside from the inside, read, or play games, while a gazebo on the deck has comfortable furniture for sitting out of the sun.

Little Esson Lake is a smaller lake just 5 minutes from the village of Wilberforce, the geocaching capital of Ontario. If you don’t know what that is, you can pop into Agnew’s General Store and while they explain it to you, you can enjoy some Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream.

Smaller lakes bring big rewards. With just 26 cottages on this lake, it is less populated than most, the boats are smaller and it rarely lends itself to jet-boat-noise resulting in a tranquil and peaceful vacation. This coupled with a flat lot and no steps to a sand beach, there’s little more perfect than that!
