Loon Talk Cottage on Clear Lake is a little piece of paradise on the Trent Severn Waterway in the Kawartha Lakes Region. It is very accessible – Toronto (1.5 hour), Peterborough (20 min north) and the town of Lakefield (10 min north). It is well located with a private beach, southern exposure, and on a flat piece of property that is great for children of all ages. It is private and has a large front yard for playing volleyball, badminton, croquet, catch, bocce ball, and more. There is a fire pit near the shoreline with a large cauldron for your use – great for lobster or corn. The expansive 137.5′ of shoreline offers excellent swimming or you can dive off the 36′ dock. Two kayaks, a canoe, and sail board (without sail) are also available for your use. Every Wednesday and Sunday, sail boats are sailing and racing out on the lake for your viewing enjoyment.
Clear Lake is excellent for bass, pickerel, perch, muskie and carp fishing. Many large fish have been caught right off the dock.

We really enjoyed our stay at Loon Talk. Cozy and wonderful! —(Dec. 2022)
Thanksgiving 2020 was memorable! Spending the holiday with our adult children in Loon Talk gave us the opportunity to be in a setting that allowed us the space and tranquility to reconnect in a wonderful way. There was everything we needed, down to the smallest detail that made it feel home to us. The property was gorgeous, secluded yet close to shopping and amenities. Communication with the host was quick and easy! Thank you, we hope to return again! —Laurie D. (Oct. 2020)
Loon Talk is an excellent cottage to rent, we have rented this unit twice and feel it to be very suitable for our needs. It is very well maintained and safe for all ages. A high point for everyone was the outdoor shower, comfortable beds, ample space , privacy and Ken is great to deal with. Another great family vacation in the books. —Thelma M. (July 2020)
This place is GORGEOUS and the owner is the most hospitable host! —Sandra (Jul. 2018)
We spent a week in the Fall at Loon Talk Cottage which was very enjoyable. The cottage itself was comfortable, well maintained, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed and more. The view from the cottage out over the lake was great. The area around the cottage was conducive to walking in the natural setting. We explored the surrounding areas of Lakefield, Curve Lake and Peterborough which were interesting and found a lovely restaurant for lunch in Lakefield called Cassis Bistro. Ken was most helpful in arranging and welcoming us to the cottage. I would definitely be interested in renting Loon Talk Cottage again and happy to recommend it to others.—Kathleen O. (Oct. 2016)
We were very impressed with this well equipped clean cottage overlooking the lake. Our family enjoyed the great swimming, beautiful sunsets and roasting marshmallows by the water. We would defiantly love to rent this property again!—Bev & Monty Messaros
This was definitely the best cottage we have rented! Easy to get too, very clean and has everything you need. The outdoor shower is amazing! The fire pit is well located by the lake and the beautiful adirondack chairs are very comfortable. Even if it rains it’s a great place to be. The large front windows provide a wonderful view, with a great open feeling. I hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.—Nancy from Port Hope.
We have stayed at the Loon Talk Cottage on Clear Lake a number of times, and always had a terrific time. The cottage is truly a little piece of paradise. We have nothing but praise for the owner Ken, who always did his utmost to ensure we had a great time. Will definitely come back in the future.—Fedor S.
Hi Ken, We really enjoyed our stay. We chose to stay at Loon Talk Cottage for a family getaway and couldn’t have been happier with the cottage. The waterfront location, great view, fire pit, boat and nearby amenities provided entertainment for the whole family. We especially enjoyed exploring the lake and boating to the lakefront restaurant. I would definitely stay at Loon Talk Cottage again and recommend it to others. —J. Knaus
