This casual, charming Lakeside Cottage provides a quiet and calm waterfront getaway only 20 minutes from the shops and restaurants in both Port Carling and Bala. Both levels of this two storey cottage are fully above ground, each level featuring two bedrooms, a bathroom with a rain head shower, sitting area and a flat screen HDTV.

The main level is light and airy thanks to a cathedral ceiling and a south-facing wall of windows in the living and dining area. It is highlighted by a wood-burning fireplace and multiple sliding doors leading to the wrap around deck. The lower level has a comfy sectional couch, a large coffee table for puzzles, a reading nook, and an electric fireplace for those cool nights. There is also a walkout to the hot tub, gentle sloping lawn, lakeside fire pit and dock.
