About This Cottage
As you drive down the cottage road towards The Château there's a spot where the lake comes into view off to the side and you get a glimpse of a magnificent home set above the water. It's enough to make you want to stop and capture the image because it's what elegant cottage living is about. When you finally arrive and realise this is the very same house that caught your attention, you'll appreciate why we wanted to share it with you.
It took years of building to create this beautiful cottage, and the attention to detail is apparent wherever you look, both inside and outside.
On the main floor the comfortable living room with soaring ceilings is flanked by the kitchen and dining area to one side, and a hallway leading to the master king suite and a second (queen) bedroom and bathroom on the other. A light-filled sunroom is accessed from both the kitchen and dining room, and has floor to ceiling windows with stunning views of the lake. Step out onto the deck here and enjoy dining outside, or simply lounging and taking in the scenery.
The upper level has a mezzanine floor that overlooks the main floor, with an office area to one end and to the other, a large room with a full-size pool table. Off there is a family suite of two bedrooms (one with a queen and one with twin beds) and a bathroom.
The lower floor is where the group is likely to hang out the most. With a media room, a spacious bar and seating area and a well equipped gym, there is something for everyone. There's another ensuite bedroom and a separate steam shower room to round out the extensive accommodation. The deck on this level is where you'll find the sunken hot tub and plenty more outdoor seating.
Even with a large group, you can probably find a quiet spot to enjoy the outside. From the dock to the decks and the other seating areas in between, there's plenty of space to hide away with a book.
The water is clean and clear and deep off the dock for great swimming. Bring your own boat or rent one locally - Mississauga Lake is part of a 5-lake chain so there is great boating to enjoy.
Although the cottage is several kilometres off the beaten track, the villages of Buckhorn and Bobcaygeon are less than 30 minutes away - both have restaurants, stores and waterfront areas, just in case you need to drag yourself away from paradise!

The local area around the cottage has sections known as Limestone Flats. When the lakes that covered most of Ontario dried up some 450 million years ago the lake sediments hardened and lifted to form a top layer of limestone. With the ice age small glaciers left a thin layer of soil. The area around what is known as Flynn's Turn (intersection of Peterborough County Road 36 and Country Road 507) on the way in to the cottage is a prime example of a limestone flat (Source - Wikipedia).
Good winter tires are needed to access the cottage in winter. 4WD/AWD is also highly recommended.
