A modern and cozy cottage located by the spring-fed Farlain Lake. This spot in the perfect mix of cottage and convenience as town is a 10 minute drive away.

Only 1.5 from Toronto and near many attractions including Awenda Provincial Park.

The space

Cozy, clean and a fun getaway. You will have a peaceful and quiet space while still being in a community setting.

Located across the street from Farlain Lake which is a nice mix of permanent and cottage residences.

Our cottage is a small 2 bedroom laid out efficiently for space. We have a double bed in the master bedroom as well as a twin over double bunk with a trundle in the second bedroom. We have a roomy bathroom with a shower, open kitchen with Island/breakfast bar. We have a larger living area with 2 couches, central coffee table, reading chair with floor lamp and a large picture wooden that looks out to our gardens and bird feeders in the front yard.

We have a large front and back yard which is partially grass mixed with flower beds. It is a nice setting to sit in the sun or enjoy a meal after a BBQ at our picnic table. We have a small deck with musoka chairs which is a great spot for your morning coffee.

We are close to several access points to the water including a boat launch as well as a public space which is a nice spot with a shared dock for swimming.

This is a great location for any tourist who is looking for a place to stay while exploring the area or looking to get away from the city, relax and swim.

Guest access

Entire cottage and lot (about 1/2 acre). Kitchen, 3 piece bathroom (no tub), 2 bedrooms with double beds (one bedroom has twin over double bunk as well as trundle), gas fireplace (indoor) natural gas BBQ and 2 outdoor fire pits.

Outdoors is divided into a front and backyard space. The backyard is level and grassy which provides a great space for relaxing or sports.

We are located on a dead end street which keeps the roadway quiet. Water access is a few cottages away and provides an access point to the lake. There is a small beach, dock and swim dock that is shared with residents and usually quiet.

Interaction with guests

I can meet you up upon check-in so I can show you around or leave the keys in a lock box. It just depends on our schedule. If you live in the GTA I can always meet you in person.

Other things to note

We can accommodate up to 4-6 people. Ideally we're looking to rent to couples or families. This is not a good cottage for multiple families as we just don't have enough floor-space. We would like to respect our neighbours and not have anyone who is interested in parties.

We have kids so if you're looking for us to leave some toys out we can do that.

We're asking for a minimum of a 7 night stay. We do a lot to clean up and make it comfortable and spotless for our guests. With a one or two night stay it is just too much to arrange from our end. Please inquire if you have a shorter date-- preference will be given to those who stay for a week or more.

We ask you bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels. If you are unable to, we can make arrangements to leave some for you.

This is our second stay at Christine's cottage. Enjoyed our stay and the area very much. The cottage is cozy and well equipped for a family or 4. No problems with any of the amenities. Checkin and checkout were smooth, did not need to contact Christine as everything worked perfectly! Thank you Christine!

Christine's place was exactly as described (nicer and cozier than the pics) and better than perfect for our week of quality family time. We were 3 adults and one child 8 yrs old. One night we were 5 adults and 2 kids and all slept comfortably and ate together on the patio. Had everything we needed and more... many toys, and games for us and the kids and a fully equipped kitchen (even a salad spinner!). We loved having breakfast every day with the humming birds and making fires at night on the patio. The beach down the road (less than 5 mins walk) was flooded while we were there but we travelled to other beaches every day! Balm beach was 15 mins drive and wasaga ~40 mins which we didn't mind at all as the drive had grocery stores, little markets, great restaurants and beautiful views along the way. Neighbors are VERY close by and very friendly

A very quiet and relaxing place! It's true there is no wifi or tv at this cottage, (URL HIDDEN) that what you're really going on vacation for? Excellent value for your money. The access to the water is only a few cottages down the way. The families on either side of access are friendly and you have a dock to walk out onto. When I arrived I found everything I needed. Having grown up in the area I already knew what other activities were available, and there is no shortage of family things to do. Tip-Crock a doodle is a pottery painting place at Superstore in Midland. They have "to go" kits and that's what I picked up for the rainy days! This cottage has an abundance of games and books and toys for kids as well. Great stay. Would recommend!

We had a wonderful couple of weeks at Fairlain Lake. Great BBQ, firepit, the comfiest couch, and a lived-in place where we felt at home. Loved to swim in the lake and close to our favourite beaches, around Balm Beach.

Christine was extremely helpful and was always quick to respond to any question. The cottage was clean and cozy- we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The front yard was where we spent most of our time; enjoying the fire or bbq. Not a waterfront cottage but lots of options nearby to enjoy swimming. Awenda park was our favourite. We would recommend this cottage and will be back in the future!

We had a great time at Christine's cottage! It has everything we needed, a cozy, family-friendly place with plenty of room for a family of four. Close to our favourite local destinations and attractions, such as Awenda park with its beautiful beaches and trails, Discovery Harbour in Penetang, heritage St Marie among the Hurons sites in Midland, Wye Marsh for. Hiking and bird watching. Will definitely come back to this place!

I am a busy Mother to 3 wonderful kids and a rescue husky dog.

I love nature and swimming and try to escape the city as often as I can. We love the proximity of our cottage and all the fun spots nearby. The lake is wonderful for swimming as it's a gradual slope, sandy and warm.

I am a former Travel Agent and don't mind helping you with the details of your travels.

I have lots of experience with cottages, real estate and renting-- I strive to make your stay memorable and enjoyable.
