 Oakdene Cottage






Enjoy your getaway at this recently renovated cottage (2020), situated in quiet Starr Bay on Lake Scugog, the perfect place for boating and fishing, just over an hour outside of Toronto.

Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms with memory foam mattresses, an indoor dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. Just off the kitchen is an upper deck equipped with a propane BBQ and additional seating. There is plenty of indoor entertainment with a games area with a foosball table, board games and 65” satellite TV with a Bose sound system and Netflix.

Be equally amused outside enjoying a personalized hydromassage in the new (2020) 7-person jacuzzi, playing sports on the spacious flat property or exploring the area in a kayak or paddleboat to venture out to the deeper regions of Starr Bay or further into Lake Scugog to swim. Appreciate relaxing or family meals on the large back deck with an outdoor dining area and plenty of space to lounge. At night snuggle around the firepit overlooking the shores of Lake Scugog, roasting marshmallows and recounting the events of the day.
