The street side of the home has a circular driveway with plenty of parking. The lake side of the home has a door and a patio door that lead you to a very large cedar deck to enjoy the outside view. There is a propane BBQ with plenty of seating to enjoy your dinner outside.
The property is flat and has a patio stone deck at the water’s edge with a ladder to easily slip into the lake. The lake has a sandy bottom off the patio and is about 3 feet deep. There is lots of room on the patio to enjoy the sun, with an excellent westerly view for the beautiful sunsets!
There are 2 docks, a smaller one and a larger ‘L’ shaped dock that extends out into the water. There is a canoe and pedal boat so you can enjoy the water.
There is an outdoor fire pit by the water to roast marshmallows into the evening. An added bonus is that we do not get black flies!

On Balsam Lake there are 3 marinas, 2 located in Rosedale. Balsam Lake Provincial Park is located on the north part of the lake along with the town of Coboconk at its most northern tip. Balsam Lake has the highest altitude of the Trent-Severn Waterway where many lakes are connected by a series of locks. It is a favourite stop amongst boaters due to its large size and good swimming.
Fenelon Falls (12 km) is a tourist town surrounded by water as it is located between Cameron Lake and Sturgeon Lake. It has a marina with restaurants by the falls and locks, and is a popular place to get ice cream and watch the boats pass through.
In town there is a Sobeys, Tim Hortons, Subway, several restaurants, various retail shops, a Beer Store and LCBO.
Lindsay is the next closest town (20 min) and is much larger than Fenelon Falls. It has many restaurants, a small indoor shopping mall called Lindsay Square, 4 Tim Hortons, Loblaws, Valumart, Staples, Dollarama, McDonalds, Wendy’s, a Beer Store, and LCBO.
We had a great time at this beautiful location. The spacious cottage and waterfront gave lots of room for relaxing. —Stephen H (Aug. 2018)
