Beautiful 4 season, west facing cottage. 3 bedrooms/2 baths in main house (6 beds), 2 bedrooms (joined)/no baths in beautiful bunkie (air con/heated). Less than 2h from Toronto. Shallow and deep water entry. 250 ft shoreline. Laundry, dishwasher, BBQ, firepit, outdoor ping pong table, badminton net, canoe, paddleboards and lilypad for use. Fully drinkable well water.

The space
Great cottage for family fun all year long. Less than drive from Toronto. Main house is 2000 square feet with 3 bedrooms (total of 5 beds - 1 king, 1 queen, 4 twin), 2 bathrooms, 2 sitting/tv rooms as well as laundry, dishwasher. Tap water is from a well and fully drinkable, tastes good and not discoloured. No need to bring your own drinking water.

Bunkie is approximately 500 square feet with 2 bedrooms (main bedroom queen bed, second bedroom double bed and single bunk above) that are joined so you have to walk through the main bedroom to get to the second. No bathroom in the bunkie.

Shallow entry is sand with weeds in one area. Excellent area for launching the the canoe, kayaks or SUPs. Sand/rock along the shore. Deep water entry off the dock (6-12 feet depending on water level. Great for water sports and all ages. Includes use of canoe, 2 kids kayaks, 2 stand up paddleboards (one adult, one child board), 2 adult kayaks (9.5 and 11 ft) lily pad. There may be a swim raft with slide in summer 2020. Lots of outdoor seating. Baseball diamond/beach volleyball court in public park 0.3 km away. Can also use as soccer field. It's always empty.

Outdoor ping pong table, badminton net and raquets, long driveway with lots of parking (limit of 5 cars). Propane BBQ (propane provided), firepit (check local firebans).

Gibson Lake Provincial Park (no longer maintained) with trails for walking, snow mobiling and perhaps cross country skiing 0.5 km further along South Gibson Lake Road. Long stretches of road with few houses great for running or riding your bike. Fantastic lake for canoeing and paddle boarding.

Cottage faces west for beautiful sunset views. Bar area overlooking the dock perfect for sunsets. Underneath this deck is storage with life jackets for your use (use at your own risk). I suggest bringing your own infant/child life jackets as mine are old, but they are there for your use should you choose.

Dock is 16x20ft then 10x20 ft (second attached dock). There is a ramp onto the 16x20 ft dock which is 3 x 10 ft. It would not be safe for toddlers to run across but does have a hand railing for people with mobility issues. There are approximately 12-15 stairs down to the waterfront and before that a path that is downhill but not steep. It may not be appropriate for someone with severe exercise intolerance or mobility issues. The bar seating above the deck would be suitable for someone with limited mobility. I have not tried to use a wheelchair down to that seating area but it may be possible with assistance.
