Cozy Cottage on Beautiful Rice Lake
Our cottage is "new to us", but not new to our family. My great grandfather moved the home over a frozen Rice lake by horse from Victoria Inn in the 1930's. We have spent the majority of the summer on renovating and bringing it back to life! It really has become a lovely space and we would like to share it with you. While we are still a work in progress, it should have the basics needed to function as a home! It has a large kitchen, equipped with a coffee maker, fridge, stove, toaster, dishes, silverware, just a few pots, pans, and bakeware. It has two bedrooms and one bath. The master is furnished with a double bed and plenty of built in storage , the second bedroom with a twin trundle and small closet, and the living room with a double sized sleeper sofa. We provide sheets, pillows, and a light quilt during the warm months. There is space in the living area for a blow up mattress, if you so chose. We have a quaint dining/game area with a bistro table and a porch with a four person table and lake views. It is my favorite place to sit and sip my coffee. The bathroom has a large claw foot tub with a shower and a few sets of towels for the lake and for bathing. Please keep in mind, we do not currently have a washer on site.Guest Access
There is a public access to the lake just steps from our cottage, as well as a short walk from a small public beach/dock with covered picnic tables. Although we have a lake view from both the porch and backyard, we ask that guests do NOT walk directly down to the lake, as this is private property. We do not currently have phone or internet. We hope to have this up and running as soon as possible and will update our site when we do.Interaction with Guests
We do not live in the area, but are available by phone or Airbnb app to answer any questions you may have.The Neighborhood
We are about an hour and a half from Toronto in the small town of Harwood. Most of the area is made up of summer cottages. It's a wonderful escape for peace and quiet, as well as excellent fishing! Rice Lake has the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen and I live in Florida! We have a couple of restaurants in neighboring town of Gores Landing; Victoria Inn and Pitchers Place. We also have the Rhino in Bewdly which is a neighboring favorite. The town of Cobourg is only about a 25 minute drive away and has everything you could need, including a quaint downtown area with shopping restaurants and a beach!Getting Around
We have a quaint corner store with your basic needs (and my favorite... Kawartha ice cream!) and two public accesses to the lake within a short walk from the cottage, but you will need a car to explore the area!
