This cottage on Lower Monmouth Lake is a traditional Northern Cabin experience and is away from it all. This cabin in the woods is quiet, has all natural surroundings and relaxing interior. This is a great Couples Retreat or family adventure offering a genuine way to get off the grid for a while and decompress. If you are ATV enthusiasts, then this is a great base camp to head out and explore from. Two Haliburton ATV Association trails are nearby (T4.4 and T4.5) which link up with many other trails.
As you enter the cottage from the parking area, you will find a lovely, clean and recently renovated interior. Outside there is comfortable seating on the deck overlooking the lake which has very few cottages on it. This Cabin in the Woods has 750 feet of shoreline on 22 acres of untouched woodlands.
Along with comfortable seating on the deck you will find the propane BBQ for the resident cottage chef. Off to the side of the deck is a fire pit area and picnic bench. Follow the gently sloping natural ground foot path to the shore and dock where there is a very nice view of the lake and sun throughout the day.
No pets are permitted at this cottage.
The shoreline is all natural beauty. The lake is a few feet deep at the dock where the bottom is entirely natural. You can use the canoe, kayaks and row boat which are provided for your enjoyment. This lake is well known for Bass fishing. While the lake is not very good for swimming, there is a public sand beach on the adjacent lake which you can access by hiking 30 minutes through an ATV trail or you can drive approx 10 minutes to get to that sand beach.
The final 2 km leg of your drive to the cottage is over a rugged cottage access road which requires a vehicle that has clearance, so a small sports car or a car closer to the road wouldn't be appropriate. This road only services a few cottages and is great for walking and viewing nature.
Located approx. 20 minutes drive from the village of Wilberforce, Ontario where you can find a Gas station, Pharmacy, LCBO/Beer store, a restaurant, Agnew's General Store and a Foodland. Nearby activities include hiking trails, fishing, golf, horseback riding, plus many Geocaches in the area. There is also a lot happening during August with the Wilberforce Agricultural Fair and the Annual Highlands East Studio Studio Tour!
