We have been enjoying our mini weekend breaks at The Pied-a-Terre. It is the perfect place to unwind. I was able to bring my mother up for a couple of nights mid- week and she loved getting away from the city. This cottage is a true hidden gem in the Kawarthas. We thoroughly enjoyed the winter months in the comfort of the cozy Pied-a-Terre. Beautifully furnished, it is the perfect place to getaway, relax and unwind. Provided is a well-equipped kitchen for cooking family meals after lots of fresh air exploring the many cross country and snow shoeing trails nearby. Enjoy stunning views of the lake and a real Home away from Home!” (Angela L.)
