Enjoy a true Canadian experience this summer at this 3 bedroom cottage nestled in a forest of enormous pines and white birch. Wenona Lake is an aquifer-fed, limestone bottom lake with crystal clear water and pristine shores. Our property is a gentle slope to the lakefront that boasts beautiful west-facing(sunset) views off a large, new dock with deep, clean swimming right off it. Enjoy the diving board, paddle board, a canoe, or kayak and go out and explore this beautiful lake. Everything you would need such as life vests, paddles, and limited fishing gear is included. There is great fishing and the lake is stocked with trout. A short paddle will take you to a natural loons' nest and most summers there are baby loons growing up with their parents. Other wildlife includes beavers, otters, muskrats, blue heron, owls, deer and the odd wolf howl. At night, enjoy a campfire located right on the water with beautiful views of the stars.
There is a large deck right off the cottage with an 8-person picnic table and large Muskoka chairs. There is also a stand up bar, large BBQ and a foozball table to enjoy. The west-facing views are amazing in the evening as the light filters through the trees and lights up the deck. Children often enjoy exploring behind the cottage and making the tree fort their own camp away from the adults.

The cottage is on Wenona (Little Dudmon) Lake, near Loon Lake - a 15 min drive from Village of Haliburton with all amenities including spas, a few golf courses, groceries and liquor stores, restaurants, shops, bookstores, a museum and regional hospital. There are many artist studios are in the area. You can mountain bike at Sir Sam's resort, and Haliburton Forest is full of hiking trails, a tree top climb and the amazing Wolf Centre.

Easy access to cottage in summer and you do not need 4-wheel or AWD to access the property. In winter, the road is plowed by the municipality to the bottom of the driveway. It is located right near miles of snowmobile trails but still secluded enough to be home to many deer who like to hang out on the property.
