Lake Simcoe Waterfront Cottage Getaway

This is a great location for a couple, friends, or family looking to get away and relax. Lovely cozy home feel, with new appliances and central heating and air conditioning. The large deck has separate seating, dining areas, and offers a lovely view of the lake! The lakefront is available exclusively for your enjoyment. Sit on the dock and soak up some rays or enjoy a nightly star gaze. 1 canoe and 1 foam board are available for your use! (Pet Friendly!)

The space
The lake is not swimmable. There is a park nearby with which you may go swimming. The beach is man-made, we poured sand and gravel on our own. The lake is weedy and is ideal for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. The internet is fast and can handle Zoom calls or Netflix streaming.

This is a well-appointed three-bedroom space with a large deck that has a sitting, lounging, and dining area overlooking the lake. We have a fire pit and bbq available for use. This listing is ideal for those who want to get away from the city and enjoy the country with a nice view of the lake. This listing faces Lake Simcoe and more specifically the part of Lake Simcoe which is very calm and ideal for canoeing and kayaking in the summer (15km+ of canoeing). In the winter, ice fishing is very popular because there are 20-40 lb fish and many locals are out on the frozen ice all day, cross-country skiing, ice skating, and hiking!

There are two entrances, one from the front and one from the back. This is a brand new home with a fully functioning kitchen, bathroom, and living room. and bedrooms. Safety features include; CO/smoke detectors and a fire extinguisher.

The fully stocked kitchen includes a dishwasher and also complimentary spices, cooking oils, and utensils. You will enjoy the warm log home feel with a lovely view of the lake. The rental area is the entire property as you would have exclusive access. Your privacy is very important to me. I will be available only if requested.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the large dock. Bedding and bath towels supplied. Please bring your own beach towels, toiletries, and food. Free use of canoe and foam board for summer fun and in the winter you must bring your own ATVs and ice fishing equipment. If you plan to do any activities we require you to sign a waiver to acknowledge the risks involved as the onus is on you. Please exercise all safety measures and use life jackets while you are out in the water.

Swimming, the lake is weedy and is not ideal for swimming. However, if you plan on swimming with your family and friends there are a couple of beaches close by where you can swim.

There is a BBQ available (one charcoal and one propane we do not provide either charcoal or the 20lb tank or propane you will need to bring your own). Additionally, we have a fire pit that is also available to use. Please bring your own firewood (they are sold at local gas stations).

We have a Brita water filter and a Keurig Kcup coffee machine that is available for you! We provide linens, towels, utensils, plates, bowls, cups, glasses, we have brand new towels, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, and much more!

We have LTE internet from, Xplornet, it's the fastest speed they offer we recently upgraded from Satellite and LTE has up to 50 MBPS (you can use this for Zoom, Netflix, Youtube, etc).

No loud music. No disturbance of neighbours.

The owner may conduct landscape work on the property during your stay. The owner will be socially distant from the guests and not interfere with the guests' stay while the owner is on the property.

Where you’ll be

Orillia, Ontario, Canada

Orillia is a beautiful city that provides the perfect pairing of not only big-box retailers and city life if needed but also with the cottage feel you are looking for without driving 3 hours away. Walmart, NoFrills, and many other stores are approximately a 15-minute drive away if you need supplies. Down the road you have access to a provincial park, McRae Point Provincial Park which you will be able to go for a long hike (there are also a few other large parks within a 15-minute drive away that are also fantastic). Moreover, you have direct access to Lake Simcoe if you plan on swimming or doing water sports. If you have ski-doos or jet skis you can directly load your watercraft at the backyard without going to a dock.

No loud music. No disturbance of neighbours.

Please note that you will be expected to take all garbage and recycling with you when you leave. The reason is that Simcoe County only collects garbage every other week and waiting for collection day may resulting in attracting animals or worse making the place smell!

5 Things I Can't Live Without: My Wife, Running, Movies, My Dog, Organization

As A Guest: I'm very accommodating, I am very clean, I am very organized and I am very honest with how I feel. I enjoy learning about the host and their schedule so that we can live comfortable without compromising much, I enjoy learning and supporting the host so that I can live more comfortably.

Style: a penny saved is a penny earned is my philosophy when traveling and although I am very price conscious I do enjoy the finer things in life (given the time and situation are appropriate and the splurge is well worth the experience). I love scenic views, clean places makes me feel at home, clean air/water, learning new languages, cultures and enjoying local food/customs is my favourite.
