This beautifully appointed Executive Cottage is situated in a quiet part of Shadow Lake near the towns of Norland and Coboconk. This is a beautiful Cottage Country area of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario only two hours north of Toronto.

This cottage has a flat grassy play area in front and behind the cottage along with a sand beach with gradual walk in entry to enjoy swimming and water toys. The water off the end of the dock is deep sufficient to dock your boat.

The cottage is stunning with its quality finishing, high ceiling, tall picture windows, and 3-bedroom loft. The kitchen and large island provide everything you need to prepare amazing meals. The large dining table overlooks the lake and is open concept adjoining the living room where there is a grand stone fireplace and lots of room to lounge. There is also a screened porch off the kitchen.

Ward’s Landing can comfortably sleep 10 people, maximum 8 adults, in style and comfort. The bedrooms in the loft include a private master bedroom with king bed and en-suite with extra large shower. There are 2 more bedrooms, each with queen beds, and an additional bathroom with shower stall. On the main level there is a kids bedroom with a double top and bottom bunk and pull out couch. The main level also has a 2-piece washroom plus there is a luxurious steam shower/sauna in the laundry room and even a bonus outdoor shower!

 On a lower level you will find a games room with pool table, air hockey and foosball table.

Outside, enjoy the lakeside gazebo or lounging on the sand shore.  Plus a large deck, covered swing at the back and fire pit offer plenty of options to find your perfect sitting spot. There are also swings and playground equipment for the children and a launch area right on the property if you wish to bring a boat. Wake up in the morning and swim, jog, walk or just laze with your coffee. Everything you need to relax is here. 

Ward’s Landing on Shadow Lake is in an extraordinary part of cottage country that brims with a fun cottage country atmosphere. It is an ideal place to escape to a luxurious Executive Cottage.

Located on Shadow Lake, it is a great location for a range of activities if you want to take day trips to local amenities, artisan studios, golf and many other attractions.  This cottage is 2 hours north of Toronto and just a short drive to the towns of Norland, Coboconk and Kinmount where you'll find all the amenities you need. Kinmount has a great movie theatre and Casino Rama is less than 60 minutes away, as are the towns of Haliburton and Minden which offer great shopping, golf, artisan studios, wildlife centers and much more.

Review of G. G.'s stay in Jul 2019


Guest Comments: The cottage was exactly what we were hoping for. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. We spent 90% of our time outside where the lake was amazingly swimable and having the beach area is great for the kids. We're planning on coming back to the same cottage again next year!
