Overview

About the property

3- Bedroom Lakeside Log Cottage--Gooderham Lake, Haliburton

This cottage has everything you imagine for the lake holiday you've been longing for. The waterfront area features all day sun with southern exposure, a floating dock, lakeside deck, a magical furnished boathouse bunkie at water's edge, and easy access for launching the peddle boat, kayak, two canoes (one is a Kevlar) or stand up paddle board. Your boat may be docked on site with good proximity to the lake's boat launch. If fishing is your game, Gooderham Lake is plentiful with Small and Large-Mouth Bass, Perch, Pickerel, and Rainbow Trout. Swimming is excellent off the dock with good depth and clean, clear water.

Nestled in a pine/birch canopy and overlooking the waterfront is an authentic 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom log cottage with a vaulted ceiling great room and a large open kitchen. Its warm, glowing interior includes a charming red fireplace (propane), mid-century furnishings and classic cottage decor combine to create a home that is the perfect setting for large families or groups of friends. There is an extensive film and video library for all ages with good quality audio to enjoy in the evenings or on rainy days. The open concept updated kitchen with breakfast bar is a great place for gathering but you will likely BBQ on the propane grill and take meals on the magical screen porch which perfectly frames pink sunsets over the lake.

Open out the doors of the boathouse for a picture postcard view of the lake. The boathouse provides an extra social space during the day and seconds as an annex sleeping quarters at night. Enjoy sleeping by the water's edge and watch the moon overlook the rippling water. Gather around the chiminea for a bonfire at the rear of the cottage after dark.

Gooderham Lake boasts a serene 5 mile perimeter. Lined with birch, cedar, hemlock and pine, it is a nature lover's haven. Nearby trails lead to a hidden crown lake. Canoe and kayak the rushing Irondale River route or the many surrounding jewel lakes awaiting your discovery.

The cottage accommodates 6 to 8 adults and is equipped with a full kitchen, microwave, and dishwasher. A pet policy will be outlined upon request.

Our July 2018 vacation cottage rental at Gooderham

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, rustic, true cottage with an easy-to-use more modern kitchen. The lake was perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing. We used the many water “toys” every day...2 canoes, a kayak, a pedal boat, a paddle board, etc... the sky at night is amazing with the Milky Way visible. We used the boathouse for an extra bedroom, and it is a special spot. Saw a grebe carrying its babies on its back, heard and saw a pair of loons every day.

There is a climb down to the dock, deck, boathouse and lake and back up.

Overall, I would give this cottage, lake and vacation a 10 out of 10.....probably the perfect weather contributed to our excellent time.

Thanks to Anne-Marie for the use of their cottage and for the comprehensive “cottage manual” which addressed all of our questions, for checking to make sure we were happy with everything!

Beautiful Traditional Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved the cottage! It was quiet and very nicely organized. We had brought most of our Kitchen tools but Anne-Marie has everything well kept.

We did not make use of the bedroom in the boat house but we definitely would next time. We made full use of the canoe, kayak and paddle boat. One little set back was the paddle boat, it only works on reverse so make sure to 2 grab paddles should you use it.

We never ventured out to the deck at night but it would something to do next time.

Great cottage!

Lakeside Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Disappointed with the beach that was advertised and also the fact that the dishwasher was not working. Very well equipped with utensils and dishes. Made good use of boats and water toys. Neighbours with the beach were friendly towards our family. I found the cottage to be dark inside and missed the view of the lake unless you were in the screened in porch.

Lovely Cottage on a quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this Gooderham lake cottage. The lake itself is beautiful - Quiet with fantastic swimming. The cottage has a large great-room/kitchen, and a lovely screened in back patio which we used every night. The bedrooms are moderate size, but manageable; we were able to easily fit a travel crib in one room, and a child's cot in another. The boathouse is a very good size, but be aware that it is not insulated and being on the lake means it can get quite cold if the temperature is dropping at night (season dependent!)

Gooderham has a general store and LCBO, and Haliburton is a short drive away. There is also great "back road" driving around - beautiful lakes and very well maintained dirt roads. Take a look at a map and go exploring:) Our favorites were the drive on the 14/19, north of Halliburton to Fort Irwin, and the more rugged drive on Greens Mountain Trail just to the south of Gooderham.

My only critique of the cottage is that some of the pictures sort of imply that the sandy beach is part of this property - it isn't, and the owners of the beach property are not interested in allowing renters access. The cottage has its own good sized dock and boat house, and has a very small portion of the beach which CAN be used, but don't set your heart on lounging on a sandy beach.

Overall it was a great stay, and I would certainly recommend it to families, or for a romantic get-away.

Beautiful Haliburton location, great classic cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage with nice amenities, views, and hospitality from host.

This is a "classic" cottage with some nice extra amenities (dishwasher, dvd collection, tons of boardgames, fully equipped kitchen).

This was great for our 2 year old daughter - she could have the run of the cottage without a thought to her getting into anything!

Small walk downhill to the water but a nice boat house and sandy beach for her to splash in.

Neighbours were relatively close by, but quiet and kept to themselves.

Highly recommended!
