About the property

Sleeps up to 12 people. 5 bedrooms + 2 dens, 4 bathrooms. Great for large groups

2012 new renovation! The cottage is 3000 square feet. A large cedar sauna that seats 8 people. Great for jumping in the lake or the snow! Two master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, one with a fireplace and one with a jacuzzi tub. A Games Room with a ping pong table and air hockey. A TV room with a pull-out bed. Reclaimed wood kitchen with a huge harvest table for large dinners. Stainless steel appliances, dishwasher and laundry facilities. Great for two families to share. The cottage is available year round. Enjoy the many winter sports available close to the cottage and then return to our beautiful retreat with a large sauna to warm you up!

The cottage is on a sandy beach which is shared amongst the neighbouring properties. The lake is spring-fed and warm. It is a quiet, small lake. A beautiful oasis. From the deck look out onto a quiet sandy beach and enjoy the sunrise. Located next door to the cottage is Awenda Provincial Park with great hiking and biking trails. Awenda is located on Georgian Bay with miles of sandy beaches and small creeks. In the winter Awenda has groomed cross-country ski trails or there is cross-country skiing on the lake. The cottage is located within 30 minutes of downhill skiing at Moonstone or Horseshoe Valley ski resorts. If you are a biker or skier this is the cottage for you!

Penetanguishene and Midland are within 10 minutes driving distance from the cottage or 30 minutes biking distance. In town, there are tennis courts, funky coffee shops and places to eat not to mention the new Arts Centre that has just opened in Midland. There are also historical sites like Saint Marie Among the Hurons and Discovery Harbour. The area boasts local organic farms, farmers markets and fresh fish from Georgian Bay. There is always something exciting and new to do in this area.

About Deborah Adelman

We recently bought this cottage. We have had a cottage in this region for the past 9 years. We sold the smaller cottage to buy this much bigger cottage so that we can accomodate more friends and families when we are at the cottage. The cottage is a great place for entertaining and spending time with friends and families. Also, Awenda is a great bonus! We spend a lot of time hiking, biking and skiing in the park. We love it!!!

Deborah Adelman purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Deborah Adelman chose Ontario

The location!!!! Depending where you live in Toronto it is between a 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Toronto. It is so close that sometimes we just go up for the night. Also, we love being close to a town with 24 hour shopping, great food and ammenities. We love the local restaurants and fresh farm produce that is available within 10 minutes of the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located on a small, beautiful spring-fed lake. It is wonderful to swim across the lake. We also love going to Georgian Bay to enjoy the big lake with great waves, swimming and long walks on pristine sandy beaches. It is the best of both worlds -- the big lake with the long sandy beaches and a small, more intimate lake experience. You can also enjoy drinking water from our well. It has been tauted as some of the best water in the world!

Beautiful Five Bedroom Cottage plus Den and Sauna!
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Beautiful location and beautiful cottage. Clean, spacious and warm. We'll be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my family and I arrived at the cottage, everyone could not stop commenting on how perfect it was. The cottage was PLENTY large enough to comfortly sleep 12 adults and also to give us the opportunity to do things together or have our own space. The view from the cottage is beautiful and the neighbours are lovely. The cottage was very clean and welcoming, and it was wonderful having a dining table large enough to seat us all!! My only recommendation would be to be mindful of the stairs to the downstairs part of the cottage - there are some wood pieces holding the carpet runner in place and if you're not paying attention you can hurt your heel. Not a major issue at all - just something to be aware of for kids (And adults alike) who aren't watching where they step.

Aside from the cottage and property exceeding our expectations, I have to sincerely thank and compliment the owners for being so wonderful and efficient at responding to any questions I had - even while at the cottage! It made the entire experience so much more enjoyable and allowed me to simply look forward to going, and relax completely while we were there.

Thank you SO much, Deborah and Robyn!! Ill be contacting you again soon to book for next year! 😊😊😊

Fantastic Family Memories!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time staying at this property and the family keeps asking when we are booking the fabulous property again.

Nestled amongst woodland facing the lake we wanted to spend every moment outside to take it all in - de stress, and relax around the fire pit and/or get some exercise hiking, biking,boating etc.

Every amenity thinkable was also available inside the spacious and charming cottage - play room, sauna, as well as a large harvest table so everyone enjoyed meals together.

Looking forward to making more family memories next year!

Cottage is amazing. Lots of bedrooms and is huge with a great kitchen with a beautiful view. On a small Lake which doesn't have a lot of traffic which is great for swimming since the water is warm and clear and also fishing (great small mouth bass fishing) the town is close which is nice and also you have Awenda Park next door and the casino Rama not to far if you're interested. Best cottage get away and probably the best price you will find.

Girl's getaway

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a girl getaway. Swimming in the lake or in the provincial park on Georgian Bay with its magnificent vews. Long walks in the park. A great deck for eating outside. A convenient kitchen (well organized) and a wonderful harvest table for long communal meals and talks. Lots of space to spread out.

Beautiful vaction home.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending time ensconced in this lovely home nestled in tall trees overlooking the lake with its sandy beach and shallow entry. The house , decorated in Scandi style warmed by lots of beautiful wood, the wood of the pale floors, the kitchen cabinets, the long dining room table and the pale wood of the dining room ceiling, was a joy to settle into. We were exquisitely comfortable.

The bonus is the proximity to Awenda Park with its beautiful trails through the old-growth forest and its sandy beaches on Georgian Bay, which feels like the ocean. We found ourselves transported to a calm and peaceful place. Loved it!
