About This Cottage
Imagine the sun dappling on the water through the trees as you sip your first coffee of the day on the deck. A blue heron makes its leisurely way across the water, wings dipping as it spies its morning meal, and the haunting call of a loon breaks the silence momentarily. Take a deep breath and relax – this is what a cottage vacation is all about.
And this is how you might start every day at Sweet Retreat.
This beautiful home faces south over picturesque Kennebec Lake, just about half-way between Toronto and Ottawa – an easy drive from either city. It’s close to some of the best Provincial Parks in Ontario, so bring your hiking boots!
Or perhaps all you want to do is stay close to home; swim and fish; read some books and enjoy this wonderful cottage.
Step inside and you’ll be overwhelmed by the lightness of the great room with gorgeous views over the lake. The comfortable living area is open-plan alongside the dining space and well-equipped kitchen. The chef in the family will enjoy the wealth of preparation space and stainless steel appliances while those who just want to kick back can relax with a cocktail at the breakfast bar or in the screened sun room. There are sliding doors from the sun room and from the living area out to the deck where you’ll find outdoor dining furniture and the BBQ.
The master bedroom and ensuite bathroom are on this level together with a small study, powder room and laundry area.
A staircase leads down to a comfortable family room with large screen TV, a wood burning fireplace for cooler evenings and plenty of books and games. Two more bedrooms and another full bathroom are off this space while another sliding door that opens onto the lower deck and access to the water.
The terrain is natural to the waterfront and dock where the water is clean and clear with a rocky shoreline. The lake is around 3-feet at the end of the dock and there are steps to help you in and out of the water. A canoe is provided for that evening paddle across the lake.
This is a perfect choice for a family that wants to create wonderful memories of a cottage vacation at any time of the year.
