Welcome to friendly, clean and stunning Big Cedar Lake, smaller and quieter than Stoney Lake.
Kawartha means 'Land of Shining Waters' and is the name that First Nations people gave to the region surrounding the modern-day city of Peterborough. It remains a fitting description of an area renowned for its wealth of sparkling lakes and rivers, rugged landscape and deep forest of which Big Cedar Lake is a relatively small but perfect example, being 3 miles long and 1 mile wide situated on the edge of a Provincial Park and deep forest. The lake is spring fed and one of the cleanest in Ontario.
The Art House on Big Cedar Lake is in the heart of this renowned, exceptionally picturesque region. A General Store and great diner are just 3 km away and the pretty village of Lakefield a 20 minute drive. Lakefield has 3 excellent restaurants as well as good shopping for foodies and gift seekers. Another 20 minutes' drive takes you to the eclectic city of Peterborough where there is plenty of shopping, live music and entertainment, art and cultural activities, and first class restaurants The Kawarthas and surrounding region offers a full range of exciting year-round experiences including cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, skating, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, golfing, swimming, water skiing, fishing, white water rafting, as well as many arts and cultural attractions.

The Art House on pristine Big Cedar Lake is to be found in the North Kawarthas, an area peppered with lakes and waterways, 2 hours car journey north-east of Toronto and just north of the pretty village of Lakefield. The House looks over a small bay and on over the lake to the Provincial Park (a protected area) on the far shore, whilst to the rear of the property is virgin forest. The lake water is clear and warm in summer, perfect for swimming, fishing and enjoying being surrounded by nature - beavers, loons, osprey, chipmunks and even the occasional otter. Local attractions include Algonquin Provincial Park, the close-by Petroglyphs Park (a native heritage site) and the Trent waterway flowing through the city of Peterborough (25 kms) with its Canoe Museum, famous Lift Lock, shops, restaurants etc.
