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.
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.
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.
No smoking inside. Respect fire safety and fire bans. Pets allowed but we'd like to hear about them first. Keep things as you found them and clean. Sheets, towels and linens are usually brought up by our house guests.. please let us know if you are not able to do this and we can accommodate.
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.
