Experience Crescent Moon, an Executive Cottage situated on a wide 220 foot private lot on Kawagama Lake located near Dorset and Lake of Bays region of Haliburton Cottage Country.

 Fully renovated, year round, pristine cottage/home, comfortably sleeps 8, with two full baths, fireplace, and full amenities including generator, internet service, and a 6-zone indoor/outdoor sound system. An expansive deck wraps three sides of the cottage, offering raised big lake views on the waterside. Within the cottage are solid maple floors throughout, pine beams, and feature floor-to-ceiling windows on the main. Multiple full size windows throughout the cottage provide abundant natural light. Enjoy easy in/out access to the cottage with four doors exiting off the main floor, a balcony with terrace door off the master, and a patio door walkout from the basement level. One main floor bedroom with 3-piece bath, and three large bedrooms upstairs with a 5 piece bath offer spacious accommodation. Comfortable sitting areas throughout the cottage allow for retreats or larger group gatherings, indoors and out. A fully equipped kitchen with 5 X 4ft island, oversize walk-in pantry w microwave, multiple soft close, maple lined, pull drawers, and several work stations ensures your chef has all it takes to serve up the best! Or exit the kitchen and make the most of the Barbecue, or the portable fire pit at the dock.  

The 1.2 acre cottage property, on a year round paved road, offers a quiet, private location 15 minutes east of Dorset.  The cottage has a drilled well, exceeding 450 feet to an artesian aquifer for quality water source.  The 220ft shoreline offers gently sloping beach entry, or invites a dive off the dock into crystal clear waters.  Excellent swimming! Lakeside expanded cedar decks for stationary and floating docks, offer day long sun or shade. A ‘Lily Pad’ is available for kids play or sunning on the water.  Spectacular sunsets and big lake views, across Lake Kawagama from deck and dock will complete your day.  Kawagama is the largest lake in Haliburton. It is approximately 11 km x 4 km, island dotted, boasts two marinas, reaches depths over 220 feet deep, and is spring fed and top of the water system out of Algonquin Park.

Dorset offers access community recreation programs, library, Health Hub, Children’s play parks, Dorset Tower hike, LCBO & Robinson’s for all your grocery, gift, clothing and hardware needs. Find theatre at Deerhurst Resort & in Huntsville. Algonquin Highlands offers a full slate of interests and activities on the web.   

Our preference would be renting to a responsible family. Games, books, ping pong, pro basketball net, two canoes & paddle board are all on site. No pets due to allergies & non-smoking.
