By Kim Kerr-Dearsley

One of the most attractive and sought after lakes in the Haliburton Highlands, a Kennisis Lake cottage is an ideal choice for those seeking the lifestyle presented by ownership of a family waterfront property.

Whether you’re just getting started in your search for a luxury cottage for sale, or are researching suitable full-time homes for sale in Haliburton in which to retire, be sure to include this stunning custom-built waterfront cottage on Kennisis Lake on your shortlist. Located on Epic Road and listed for sale at $899,000, this attractive, low maintenance four-season cottage offers plenty of space for the whole family to spread out and relax in its 1,965 sq ft of living space.

The cottage is set on a good-sized parcel of land with 176 ft of waterfrontage that’s sheltered by Cabin Island. This not only ensures a high degree of privacy, but adds a very attractive scenic element from the shoreline and from the decks. It also helps ensure that passing boats are forced to slow down.

There’s also plenty of space for water toys and relaxation down at the water, too, and handy local amenities such as Kennisis Lake Marina are just a few minutes away by boat.


Kennisis Lake Cottage Interior Features


The property itself is beautifully landscaped, and has the added benefit of being maintenance free. Outdoor highlights include the charming granite flower beds, as well as a lovely stone stairway that leads all the way down to the water. The centerpiece here, though, is the large firepit. Set in its own granite patio, this elegantly designed feature is guaranteed to provide plenty of excuses to make some of those wonderful cottage country memories.

The interior of this charming three-bedroom Kennisis Lake cottage is equally conducive to creating great family memories. Thanks to its real knotty pine clad walls and hardwood flooring throughout – a warm and authentic cottage touch that adds greatly to its cozy ambience – you’ll no doubt want to spend plenty of time enjoying the bright, open concept main living area.

Equally pleasant, the lovely oversized dining area was created with hosting in mind, and offers plenty of space to seat large groups of friends and family. From this main level living area you can easily walk out directly to the cottage’s large deck. This attractive feature comes with a glass railing allowing for uninterrupted (and stunning!) views over the lake.


Plenty of Space To Spread Out


Other notable features of this three bedroom winterized cottage include a spacious main floor master bedroom, plus a further two bedrooms on the upper level. A sitting room on the second floor can also easily be utilized as a fourth bedroom.

Need even more sleeping space? A good-sized Bunkie is also included… a space the kids (and grandkids!) are going to want to enjoy as their own.
