Other things to note
Clydesdale Lake is a hidden gem in the North Kawarthas. The spectacular unobstructed views from the cottage and the setting of the cottage provides you with a feeling of perfect happiness. Grab a coffee and watch the unbelievable views from the living room or dock. 10 minutes from the Town of Apsley and 2 hours from Toronto, this small quiet lake is ideal for getting away and recharging batteries. Clydesdale Lake has an average depth of 1.8m with its deepest point being 4m. There is excellent swimming off the dock and fishing in its clean waters and the water is always calm. Our cottage has 60 feet of waterfront with western exposure giving sunshine for most of the day. Whether you’re swimming, relaxing on the dock, sitting in front of the house, your whole family will be together on the lake level waterfront. There are no steps between the cottage and the water, only a few feet of grass, so perfect for older and younger guests. You really can't get any closer to the water if you tried.
Apsley is only 10 minutes away and has all the essentials: Foodland, Liquor Store, Library, Drug Store, Convenience Store, Royal Bank, Home Hardware and many upscale Cottage gift shops. Coe Hill is the other town near by which has great dining at the Hideaway Primitive Grill and a great Antique shop, Trashy Treasures.
The cottage and surround is thoroughly cleaned and maintained prior to guests arriving. Our expectation is that guests leave the cottage and surround as they found it.
This is NOT a party cottage. It is expected that you will look after the cottage and surround and be considerate to our neighbours so respect for the environment and keeping noise levels down is important.
Food/ drink should never be left outside as it will attract wild animals. Garbage must be stored indoors and taken with you when you leave.
You are expected to provide your own towels and bed linens. You will be provided with a starter quantity of garbage bags, toilet roll, paper towel etc but will then be required to provide your own.
Lake water which comes out of our taps is not suitable for drinking so you will need to bring your own water.
We are unable to accommodate any pets.
