Beautiful, Quiet and Well Equipped Cottage for a Family Lakeside Vacation

Lakefront vacation home in Dysart et al with patio
Nestled at the edge of South Portage Lake in Haliburton, Ontario is our cottage, a large three bedroom child friendly home. It includes a large, open concept, fully equipped kitchen with wonderful lake views. Our cottage also has a large deck where you can use the gas BBQ and dine in total peace and seclusion while taking in the beautiful views and sounds of the lake. There is A/C for summer days, electric heating as well as two wood burning stoves with abundant wood supply to keep you warm if temperatures drop, as well as a sauna for your use. You can also enjoy the game or movie on a 120 inch screen in the 1000 sq. ft. games room, located above the garage, or play a game of pool at the end of the day. This cottage is also equipped with DSL Internet with WIFI throughout the property. Our cottage has deep water off the edge of the dock as well as a shallow sandy area located close to the dock. There is an aqua trampoline that our guests can swim to and use as a place for the kids to have fun, or catch some sun. Additionally, there is a 14.6 foot lake canoe and peddle boat, and stand up paddle board for your use.

Amazing family vacation - will be back
Part of me doesn’t want to write this review as I don’t want this place to become too well known! It’s even nicer in real life than the pictures. It’s very clear this is a family home and has been set out as such. This means all the homely touches and coziness you would expect back homes. They have all the bits you would need from kitchen roll, washing liquid to dvds for the family to enjoy on their huge screen in the play room. We have 3 boys with us (11-13) and a 13 girl and they all enjoyed the vast array of water toys on offer. Especially the water trampoline. Loads of life vests are available too. As for scenery it was so beautiful and peaceful. During the week there is hardly anyone else there so you almost feel like you have the lake to yourself. We watched the morning mist rolling across the lake, stunning. There are a few snakes in the surrounding bushes (not under the owners control obviously) but it worth being aware of if you children are racing around. We mainly saw them in the morning sunning themselves by the dock and then soon disappeared once the children appeared. As far as I can tell they are not poisonous but I thought people should be aware so as to not go off paths. This is definitely not a party villa but if you are a few families looking for a peaceful lake break, this is the place for you. Will be back!
