Overview

About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Butternut Cottage is a four-season, ranch-style bungalow, located on the west-facing shore of Sturgeon Lake, about 15 minutes drive from Lindsay and 30 minutes from Peterborough. This spacious executive cottage and property are located on a quiet residential street, with homes on both sides. The road is kept clear all winter. The lake frontage is 100 feet; the water is 3' deep off the 32' dock. The water at the shoreline is shallow, with sand and pebbles.

The Cottage has four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It is equipped with central air and an electric furnace with a heat pump. There is a gas fireplace in the living room and a pellet stove in the sun room which are used for ambiance and to augment the central heating during cold winter days.

The sunroom contains a five-person hot tub and games area. East and west decks allow enjoyment of morning sun and spectacular sunsets.

The very workable lakeside kitchen includes side-by-side fridge, convection oven and stove, and dishwasher and is fully equipped to prepare traditional holiday dinners for eight guests. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room, the breakfast room or on either deck.

About Bob Harrison

I am a retired engineer. \my wife, Mary, and I have eight grown children and sixteen grandchildren who are the delight of our lives.

Bob Harrison purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Bob Harrison chose Ontario

We bought and renovated this cottage/house in 2002 because I loved the setting, the waterfront, the lake (for water sports and cross-country skiing), the sunsets, the decks, its proximity to my home and the ranch layout of the Cottage itself.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the sunsets, all year around, as the Cottage faces west, overlooking Sturgeon Lake. We enjoy swimming off the dock and other water sports like canoeing. There are two decks, one on the east side for morning sun and one on the west side for afternoon sun and evening sunsets; we enjoy sitting and reading on the decks. The cottage has four very comfortable bedrooms with 'innkeeper' mattresses. We enjoy the hot tub in the evening, after a busy day of relaxing by the lake, golf at a course nearby or cross-country skiing on the lake.

The kitchen includes a convection oven, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice machine, microwave oven and many small appliances; it is a delight to cook in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful cottage. We had a marvelous weekend, excellent surroundings, good company, good food & drink and lots of laughs. The fishing was amazing and hopefully we will be able to visit again. The neighbours were friendly and all in all, we had a fabulous time. Thanks once again.

Lovely winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Butternut Cottage as a base for skiing at Devil's Elbow. What a great spot! The place was clean and spacious and there was plenty of room for our family of five. The breathtaking westerly vistas and sunsets, the lovely fire place and the hot tub presented the perfect backdrop after an active day on the slopes. We recommend this to any family looking to getaway from the city and relax.

Perfect property, perfect experience

  • 4 of 5

My family of five visited in late June. We were extremely pleased with the property and the location. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood within 15 minute proximity to a couple of towns with a mixture of quant stores and restaurants and modern conveniences.

The property was exactly as described and pictured (except the snow!). The house was well equied and taken care of. Everything worked and there were no surprises.

The whole rental experience (inquiry, reservesation, payment, arrival, and departure) was positive and couldn't have gone any smoother.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in July 2010 and had a fantastic time! The cottage was spacious and well equipped with plenty of amenities. Backing onto the lake was really what sold us though. Beautiful sunsets and lazy days on the dock were exactly what we wanted. Great cottage experience! Also it was well situated. We wanted to avoid driving the 400 back to Toronto on a long weekend so the location wasideal for us.
