Overview

Washago House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

“The Lake House” is located just 90 minutes north of Toronto on beautiful Lake Couchiching. The house sits on one of the highest points of the lake and provides spectacular views. The lake's shallow water and a hard-packed sand bottom make it perfect for children and non-swimmers to wade and equally good for experienced swimmers. Take pleasure in relaxing on the deck off the living room - the perfect spot to bask in the morning sun and for star-gazing at night. The yard is complete with picnic table and a fire pit. Wooden stairway leads down to the dock and the lake.

The bright, open plan living, dining, and fully-stocked kitchen on the main floor all have great views of the lake. The sunroom provides a great space for children to play or watch a rented movie while not being underfoot of relaxing parents. And, so your whole family can stay “connected” and entertained, wireless internet is provided.

Two generous bedrooms (one king-size and the other queen-size) and main bathroom are up five steps. Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated, have oodles of closet space and a dresser in each. The spacious, finished lower level provides additional sleeping accommodations - 2 futons (double bed size) and a queen-size pull-out sofa - play area and another 3-pc. bathroom.

The house is on municipal water and sewers, with the water being tested by the municipality frequently for potable safety.

Local Attractions/Places of Interest:

• Within a two minute drive or a healthy walk are two well-stocked convenience stores which can fulfil many of your needs, including DVD rentals.

• The City of Orillia (just 15 minutes south) boasts such attractions as the Stephen Leacock Museum, the Orillia Opera House, the sandy beach at Couchiching Park, and the Port of Orillia and its marina, host to many special events throughout the year. Shop the boutiques on the main street, take a cruise on the Island Princess, dine out at several fine restaurants or grab a quick bite at one of the many family restaurants. All your grocery and specialty food needs can be satisfied in “The Sunshine City”.

• Located within 20 minutes to Casino Rama and its world class entertainment.

• Golf courses, wildlife reserves and more are close by.

Why Janet Glover chose Washago

We have vacationed in this community for many years. We love the quiet community, the spectacular views, the sand bottom lake and proximity to Toronto.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a lovely stay at the Lake House. Your neighbor was so very kind, we exchanged her home grown rhubarb and left her a pie.

Thank you for providing a beautiful location for our new family memories.

Fantastic cottage -highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Couchiching Lake House for 3 weeks and had a wonderful time. It was well equipped with everything we could have possibly needed -the perfect home away from home. It was comfortable and welcoming with crystal clear water and we all loved relaxing on the deck with the bbq cooking our dinner (and often lunch, too!) The owners were extremely accommodating and always happy to answer any questions and assist in any way. Having been raised in Orillia I was familiar with the area but was still surprised by how many conveniences were nearby, meaning we didn't always have to drive in to town (there are 2 well equipped convenience stores, a diner and a fruit/vegetable market all within a leisurely 10 minute walk). The neighbours were extremely friendly and even offered the use of their inner tube which my daughter was thrilled about! The pictures posted of this rental are all accurate and we found the rooms larger than they appear with incredibly comfortable beds and lots of storage for clothing. In total we had 5people in our group and found it more than spacious. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the outdoors with Orillia on their doorstep. We all had a fantastic time and thought the value for money was exceptional. Now that we've stayed once we will definitely be back!

Peaceful Paradise!

What a lovely time we had at the Couchiching Lake House! The water was crystal clear, the cottage was quaint yet spacious and delivered more than we could hope for in a cottage rental. My first thought upon walking in was "Can I buy this place!"

The kitchen is huge and very well equipped, the decor is lovely, the bedrooms large, and the beds comfy. While the deck and backyard property are relatively small, our group of 6 adults were not tripping over each other at all.

We had one little problem with propane and the owners rectified it lickety split!

Orillia has a great downtown with little shops, bakeries and eateries and we found out all about the area just by reading the Information booklet provided by the owners. What a treat!

Thanks for a great time! See you soon!
