Come and relax in this brand new, beautifully designed cottage on Balsam Lake. The grand room features soaring 16 foot vaulted ceilings and amazing west-facing panoramic views of the lake.  There is plenty of seating both indoors and out – whether you want to hang out in the open concept family room, relax on the expansive deck or dock or around a cozy fire at night. The property offers a great mix of sunshine and shade from the mature trees that also give you privacy. 52” Smart TV and Blue-ray/DVD, some board games and playing cards are there for those rainy days or evenings. The connected speaker system both indoors and outdoors provides rich full sound no matter where you are. There is an outdoor fire pit for those who enjoy campfires, laughter and conversation. The property boasts 100 feet of inviting natural shoreline, with walk-in entry into a hard-packed sand base with no weeds, on one of the best lakes in the Kawarthas.

Enjoy a refreshing drink sitting on the dock watching a windsurfer go by or simply soak in the quiet serenity that will make you forget you are only an hour and a half from Toronto. For those fishing enthusiasts, you may already know that the fishing on Balsam Lake is excellent – bring up your rods and fish right off the dock! This space was designed to maximize comfort and relaxation for families – great sight lines for parents, ample green space for tossing around a frisbee or setting up a friendly game of badminton, and even a sandbox for the little ones. If you are looking to sleep in or enjoy an afternoon snooze you will appreciate the specially installed sound insulation between the floors that make the bedrooms quiet enough to hear a pin drop. The open concept chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with plates, cutlery, pots and pans and most of the conveniences of home. We hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do.

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.
