COTTAGE LIFE - 3 BEDROOM OASIS ON LAKE SIMCOE

Orilla Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Baths (sleeps 9-10) Extraordinary Lakefront, Clear Warm Waters

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 cottage was built for Reverend McLennan's son - the largest and choice piece of the surrounding cottage properties. It has three bedrooms, small well equipped galley kitchen, a large living room with an adjoining sunporch which is a wonderful place for reading, relaxing and playing those wonderful summer board games!

This property was an amazing find - a little more than 1 hour north of Toronto, it allowed our young family to enjoy life at the lake while Dad commuted to Toronto during the summer months - a breeze with the on the 404. The water is crystal clear, and because of the west facing property and the gentle breezes blowing of the lake biting bugs are rarely a nuisance. The town of Beaverton provides amusement, and all necessities. A leisurely walk for ice cream and a movie.

Close Proximity to major attractions - including Casino Rama, and all amenities bus service to Toronto, banking, shopping, library, pick your own farms, Red Barn Theatre, yet completely secluded, surrounded by trimmed cedar hedge. Private lake front with a dock - highly unusual on the west side of Lake Simcoe.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE - JUST PERFECT - CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!

Amazing experience - just perfect - can't wait to go back!!

My husband and I just got back from a four day trip to a little piece of Heaven. I was so saddened to leave and would have done anything to extend our trip. It's so hard to go back to the busy city when you've spend time at this tranquil and beautiful location. The cabin looks right on to the water and it's just unbelievably gorgeous. You can lay in bed and look out to the lake. Who wouldn't want to wake up to that? We had our own private beach and access to water activities such as a paddle boat and kayaking. The cabin has recently been renovated and was done so well. They have everything that you could possibly need and more -blew our expectations away! We spent our nights BBQing, making s'mores by the fire pit and watching the beautiful sunset. I've never seen a sky light up like that. The owners of the cabin are so kind and generous and welcomed us with open arms. I absolutely can not wait to go again!

UNBEATABLE VALUE! RUSTIC VIBE & MODERN AMENITIES. A+++

Unbeatable Value! Rustic Vibe & Modern Amenities. A+++
  • 5 of 5
After spending five days and four nights here, my wife actually started to cry when we were leaving.

After staying at this quaint little cottage on the water in Beaverton, I'll never need to hear the word "Muskoka" again.

I don't understand why people pay the money they do to be in Muskoka when Beaverton is just 100 KM north of the city. We made it from the cottage to our downtown condo tonight in 1 H 10 M, and paid a fraction of what it costs to stay in Muskoka.

We wanted a cottage that was rustic, but with many of the modern conveniences of home, and we found it right here with Elizabeth and Doug's cottage on acres and acres of lush lawn! The cottage is rustic pine, quaint and cozy, but with WiFi that's as strong a signal as you'll find in any city, and a brand-new Samsung LED TV with 100+ channels. There's a new washer-dryer, microwave, propane barbecue AND charcoal barbecue, and everything is taken care of and thought out for you. Extra pillows, extra linens, fans for each room in case it's too hot (not to mention three ceiling fans), and every conceivable kitchen utensil you could need. It's truly the rustic throwback cottage you've been looking for, but without sacraficing modern amenities.

There's a sandy beach where you can swim from (the only beach I saw on this row of cottages, as most just have a ladder to enter the water), a large concrete platform for tanning, lounging, and hanging out, and a dock as well. The water is clear as can be!

The view from the living room, porch, and back lawn looks out over the lake, and the sun sets each night right in front of you. There's lounge chairs, Muskoka chairs, and a verandah swing to sit out and relax on.

And Cedarhurst Golf Club is literally a 3-minute drive; about 800 metres, door-to-door. $41 to play 18 holes, with a cart - unbeatable.

I wouldn't change a thing, and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Enjoy!

COZY COTTAGE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
When I think of going up to a cottage, this property had exactly what I imagine. The lake in the backyard with beautiful views. Secluded and quiet. So much yard space to play sports or have a bbq. The cottage itself was comfortable and had everything you would need to enjoy your time.

Amazing time - can't wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: Dear MK - we love our cottage too - it has been our haven to a simpler way of life - although I have always insisted on having the necessities like a dishwasher and microwave. Certainly not fancy, just perfect for a cottage. 29 years of repeat guests are testimony to a lifestyle sought by many, experienced by few. Hope to see you back soon!
