Summersby Cottage  is Unavailable for Summer 2020.


This charming and private 3-bedroom cottage faces south is situated in stand of tall evergreens and birch trees with a grand view of Big Bob Lake. There is a sloped path to the dock which has a large platform to soak up the sun during the day and the great sunsets.  Swimming is off the dock using the dock ladder. This traditional cottage is a great vacation escape in cottage country.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and is opened to the living and dining area for family gatherings to enjoy great meals, play games or watch movies. The living room and dining area opens onto the large deck facing the lake.

There are 3 bedrooms in the cottage with a queen in two of the bedrooms and a double/single bunk in the other.  The bath has a shower stall. 

The outside is wonderful, offering several vantage points to find your perfect sitting spot. The deck has chairs for relaxing, a gas BBQ and patio set for outside dining with seating. There is a paddle boat and row boat for your enjoyment.

This cottage has lovely character and is clean and well maintained.  It is perfect for a small family looking to experience and create cottage memories in these quiet, relaxing with all natural surroundings.

Summersby Cottage is steps from the water, to get to the cottage - a shared driveway off the main road passes through the yard of a house closer to the main road and winds down past the forest to the area of the cottage which is quite private. The residents of the house are an elderly couple that own the entire acreage and do not venture to the cottage or waterfront.

Carnarvon, Ontario is 15 minutes away, where you'll find the new location of 5-star rated Rhubarb restaurant and Boshkung Lake Brewery. The village also contains a mini-mart with liquor retail, fully-equipped marine store, golf driving range with mini-putt and hardware store.

If you want to seek out attractions, there are more restaurants, local art and culture, hiking trails and scenic lookouts nearby. Excellent golf is within 30 minutes. For more extensive shopping needs and groceries, Minden is a 15 minute drive, and picturesque Haliburton, with its summer festivals, concerts, fairs, and shopping, is approx 40 minutes.

Pet Policy: One pet allowed, small non shedding non water dog.
