This is a non-smoking family cottage, perfect for two couples with children or one couple with children and grandparents. Pets are welcome. We are willing to share our cottage by renting to respectful families with kids. There is a covered porch for you to have your morning and evening coffee and cigarette ? if you are a smoker.
The Town of Minden Hills is approximately 5 minute drive away with two grocery stores, Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons, DQ and Kawartha Dairy.
The property itself is on Gull River and just around the river bend is Gull Lake. We have docking for boats, together with a beach area that is great for swimming and has sun all afternoon. You can also float down to the mouth of the river/lake and walk back on the road to the cottage. You can enjoy walks or biking along the lake front cottage road. The property has large trees with some shady areas, as well as a gazebo on the deck overlooking the river.
We are just a short boat ride to Gull Lake and a longer boat ride to Town. Boat Launches are available in the Town of Minden Hills or from Davies Lake Road near Miners Bay or Deep Bay Road. There is some boat traffic. However, we find Saturday is the busy day and the rest of the week is quiet.
We have 2 kayaks and a canoe. Various sizes of life jackets are available together with paddles in the garage, however you may wish to bring your own life jackets. We also have a couple of adult bicycles.
