Here's your opportunity to own the perfect starter cottage for lovers of Stoney Lake and the Kawarthas less than 2 hours driving time from Toronto. It's rare to have a lake lot with 50 feet of waterfront but that makes this location more affordable for you. Imagine waking up to a loon's call w your morning coffee and book.

This cottage is open-concept with beautiful, unobstructed lake views. There's a glass French door w/o to a brand new south-facing patio. The living room has a gorgeous floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace which acts presently as the main heating source. There is a baseboard heater in the bathroom and the electrical service is 200 amp which will accommodate adding more baseboards in the future to help make this cottage 4-season.

There are many upgrades including a new steel roof (2020), a new refrigerator (2021) and a new dock (built in 2019 & added to in 2021). There is a drilled well and a septic tank (2000 gal capacity-pumped out in June 2021) and room to add a bunkie on the north portion of this 50 x 291 lot. Zoning allows you to rebuild a single-storey cottage on the existing footprint or apply to the Committee of Adjustment for a variance to build two storeys.

The big bay where this rare Stoney Lake waterfront is situated is perfect for water sports... water skiing, canoeing, kayaking away from the boat traffic in Trent waterway channel.

Boat all the way south to Young's Point through Clear Lake lock-free, travel the locks west to Bobcaygeon for a Sunday brunch or head over to Juniper Island for tennis, sailing & country square dances on a Saturday night.

Does golf excite you? Across the lake, with boat access, is the renowned and spectacular 18-hole WildFire Golf Club where you can enjoy exercise and join in clubhouse social events. 

In the winter, snowshoe or cross country ski across the ice or on the many fire routes nearby. There is a lake ice snowmobile route with marked trails. Watch out for the deer crossing between the islands.

Hiking is your preferred exercise? You've got lots of beautiful forests to explore near home or hike through nearby Petroglyph's or Quackenbush Provincial Parks.

Turn south on Dunford Road off Highway 28 north (at Big Cedar just east of Burleigh Falls) and follow Fire Route 4 east to #271. This ROW Fire Route 4 is maintained by the local cottagers ($150/yr) and is often open year-round (you'd share snow plowing costs w some neighbours). You're about 20 mins to Lakefield and less than 2h to the GTA.
