**(25+ and families only, please)**
Just an hour and a half north of Toronto, this beautifully appointed cottage offers excellent privacy with over 180 feet of waterfront, and over an acre of land. The spacious 4 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom cottage is well equipped for you and your family!

The space

The cottage is well equipped for families and comfortably sleeps 10 people. A crib and highchair are also available for those traveling with the littlest ones. Equipped with everything you'd ever need away from home, we're nestled among 150 year old trees, with cathedral ceilings and tons of natural light. The cottage is on the water, and offers a large deck off the main living area.

Guest access

The Getaway II is situated on the west side of Farlain Lake and offers beautiful, clear views of the sunrise. There is plenty of room to relax at the water's edge. There is a lakeside fire pit for ghost stories and marshmallow roasting. Or, enjoy the huge, shallow water area that can accommodate swimmers of all ages. Great for entertaining at the water side, and watching the night sky!

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, cutlery, dishes and glassware along with a full fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher. The family room is bright and comfortable. There is a television equipped with a flat-screen and satellite TV. There is also a large basement play area for the kids and a ping pong table for the young at heart.

We are a stones throw to the ample walking/hiking/biking trails and nature of Awenda Provincial Park. There is plenty of wildlife, yet we're close enough to town for when you run out of marshmallows!
We have a spectacular view from the deck, where you can view both ends of the lake during all seasons.

Enjoy great views of the night sky after a day on the links - the 18-hole Championship Midland and Brooklea Golf and Country Clubs are a short drive away as well as other regulation 9-hole options nearby. Or, in the winter, bring your snow shoes or skis and enjoy nearby trails, or the frozen lake right from your door. Snowmobilers have direct access to groomed trails and cross-country skiers are a few pole-plants from the groomed trails of Awenda. For those who prefer the chairlifts, a short half-hour drive has you carving the slopes of Horseshoe Valley or Mount St. Louis Moonstone. Guests are welcome to bring their own boat and use the free public boat launch nearby.

Other area activities include:
-30,000 Island Boat Cruises
-Martyr's Shrine
-Saint Marie Among The Hurons
-Wye Marsh
-Shopping and Restaurants of Downtown Midland and Penetanguishene

Booked this cottage with a group of guys for a weekend in June. Awesome location on a beautiful lake. Cottage was clean, spacious, and well stocked. Great deck with BBQ and lots of yard/property for games. Host was excellent and happy to provide info/answer questions. We were all extremely pleased and would definitely stay again.

This is the second time we stayed here and we absolutely loved it. William is a wonderful host who ensures your stay is comfortable and you feel at home. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped, perfect for a family or couples get together. It is kept very clean, has a full kitchen and satellite TV, games room and basically everything you need to enjoy your stay. William provides everything you need to know in a welcome package as well as a packing list you can refer to when preparing for your trip, which I found extremely helpful. Prepare to relax when your there. The large windows looking on to the lake at breathtaking. Make sure to walk down to the dock during the day and enjoy a campfire at night. We enjoyed a walk through Awenda Park and took the canoe out, which we really enjoyed. I would highly recommend checking out this property and those for which William is a host as you will enjoy a truly wonderful stay. We look forward to coming back here again :-)

We had a lovely stay at a beautiful property. The views of the lake are stunning! The open kitchen make it easy to hang out while the chef is cooking without being too seggregated. We brought all our essentials and didn't lack for anything, but the town is about a 10-minute drive away in case you forget anything - pretty convenient! I would recommend bringing toilet paper, paper towel, garbage bags, hand towels kitchen towels as well as your bedding and towels. William was very communicative and responsive and check-in was hassle free. Overall, a very positive experience and would recommend.

We had a great stay at this cottage over New Years. Four adults and 4 kids fit perfectly. Enjoyed the fireplace and open concept living and kitchen area. the driveway was even plowed out while we were staying there as there was some heavy snowfall. We hope to go back sometime in the summer .
