Overview

Lake Simcoe Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Amazing country house for multi generational vacations, small groups & weddings

Start a new family tradition at this Historic Estate with private waterfront. Situated 1.3 miles south of the town of Beaverton on the South East shore of Lake Simcoe, the property is 2 1/2 acres of park-like setting which will captivate all, with manicured lawns perfect for croquet, badminton, volleyball or touch football. The view of the lake is unparalleled magnificence, with a glorious sunset over the far western shoreline. This is property is for the discerning vacationer - it's one of a kind.

Lake Simcoe is a boater's paradise with easy access to the Trent Canal system, because of the size of lake there is never congestion for boaters, and there are large islands nearby to explore. The fishing is great for small mouth bass and perch, sunfish and trout.

Several golf courses are within minutes away, reasonable rates and well tended fairways give challenge to even the best players.

The house is the original farmhouse built for Reverend McLennan - the farm was later divided into the surrounding cottage properties. It has six bedrooms, large farm kitchen, a large living room, formal dining room and a wrap-around sunporch which is a wonderful place for reading, relaxing and playing those wonderful summer board games!

Wonderfully well thought out with lots of extras for games on the lawn and playing at the beach. Kids and adults loved the old farmhouse and the incredible property. If we are ever back, we will definitely rebook in this very special place. Thanks Elizabeth you made it very easy for us!

Beautiful Lakecroft

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we drove down the driveway it was clear that the lake house was everything the pictures promised and more. The house had everything we needed, along with extra thoughtful touches. The best part of the property is the private beach and the lawn overlooking it - heaven The owners were lovely and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Hope to be back next year.

Everything you want in a vacation home, and more.

  • 5 of 5
This charming lakeside home in a beautiful park-like setting exceeded all our expectations. It has all the modern amenities -- well-equipped kitchen, WiFi, flat-screen TV), but what really makes the experience special are the simple charms of the place... reading or playing games in the screened sun porch, playing badminton on the lawn, sunning and swimming on the beautiful beach, going for walks or bike rides in the area, exploring the local towns and historic sights.
This place has it all. Thank you, Elizabeth, for making our stay such a special and memorable experience. Can't wait to come back next summer!

Well worth it for a group

  • 5 of 5
Owner was great to work with. Once you arrive or see the place in person, you know you made the right choice. We were a large group of guys and the owner was not judgemental about hosting us. Lots of flat green space for outdoor activities.

PERFECT First Time to a Canadian Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
What an outstanding getaway! A perfect balance of shutting down and being comfortable. The house was just beautiful and historical - but updated with all the (new!) niceties of today. If you want to swim and be outside - it is picturesque. If you want to hang out inside together - plenty of space and a beautiful kitchen. From a slight breeze with a good read to a jump in the lake - this house has it all. I can't wait to come back and enjoy it with friends and family!

Highly recommend - My expectations were completed exceeded!
