Located on one of the quietest lakes in the Haliburton Highlands, this charming Colbourne Lake cottage for sale should certainly be considered a contender for anyone looking to buy waterfront luxury real estate in Ontario.

Set on a private mature-treed lot that covers an impressive 25 acres of prime waterfront real estate overlooking, this immaculately maintained log home features 2,236 sq ft of living space that includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms. An additional 1,024 sq ft of living space is included in the basement area, too.

Interior highlights include a stunning open concept kitchen with luxurious granite countertops and plenty of space for whipping up memorable cottage meals with friends and family. Also worthy of a mention are the dining and living areas. Finished with rustic wood beams and engineered hardwood flooring, there’s plenty of room for guests to stretch out and relax, along with a real fireplace and stunning lake views. There’s even a handy walk-out to the cottage’s large covered wraparound deck, the perfect for those wanting to dine al fresco.

And if none of the above convinces you that this Haliburton property makes for a great (and affordable) alternative to a cottage in Muskoka, check out the spacious master bedroom. This large room features a delightful propane fireplace to keep you warm and cozy during those winter nights, and in summer there’s private balcony… the perfect spot to relax with your morning coffee.
