Welcome to this wonderful 2,000 sq. ft. 3 bedroom cottage and Bunkie located on the tranquil shores of Tasso Lake. The cottage is truly a family cottage as the acre of land was purchased by the owner’s aunt over 50 years ago at an auction. The original cottage, which is currently the north wing where the games room, a bedroom and a 3-piece bathroom are located, was built by her children and their friends while camping out on the driveway! Since then, the current owners added a magnificent addition while retaining the original cottage, just 2 steps up from the dining room.
An interesting family tradition will add to the warm welcome of renting guests. The owners have a flag tradition (and many flag poles and flags), which started when 2 of their children attended school in Europe and invited friends they met there back to the cottage. They greeted them with their national flag and it received such a positive reaction that it has become a tradition for all of their guests, and they will try to fly the flag of each renter!
Everything about the addition exudes warmth and a wish for its guests to relax and have a fun and memorable holiday. The open concept kitchen/living/dining room and loft master bedroom have gorgeous hardwood floors, soaring cathedral ceilings and skylights, complimented with signature pieces such as the stone wood burning fireplace and masterly crafted live edge dining room table and kitchen island. An abundance of large picture windows throughout bring in soft ambient light while offering beautiful tree-top views out to the lake when prepping meals, dining or relaxing in the living room.
Every room is tastefully decorated with comfortable cottage country chic furniture, accented with throw pillows and cozy blankets. There is a bedroom and 3-piece bathroom, complete with a soaker tub just off of the great room and a loft master bedroom with its own 2-piece ensuite bathroom. If you are the lucky one in the family to secure the loft bedroom, you will be amazed at the view of the stars while lying in bed!
The lower level is a great spot to escape to on a hot summer afternoon and grab a nap on the day bed where there is also a laundry room and 3-piece bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The Bunkie is just a stones throw away from the cottage, perfect for the older kids to enjoy a bit of privacy and the original cottage offers a game room, 3-piece bathroom and a cozy bedroom…so many places for family members to choose from to spend their evenings!
Start your days off with breakfast on the deck with tree-top views out to the lake while taking in the serenity of the natural setting. It’s also a great spot for the kids to feed the chipmunks and the many birds that come to visit all day long. The sun is on the dock from 8am until 6pm in the summer, so needless to say it is always a treat to while away the day here, enjoying all that the lake has to offer and with a beverage fridge in the shed on the dock there is no need to head back up to the cottage for refreshments. With a large selection of non-motorized water toys at your disposal, be sure to get out and explore the lake. Equally as special is the dock in the evening, with after dinner beverages, providing a fantastic view of the evening stars.
With so many outdoor games available to you…bocce ball, horseshoes, bean bag toss (for the younger ones), basketball and volleyball…organize friendly sports competitions with the entire family. For a change of pace, head out for an afternoon to explore Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve which is just down the road from the cottage. It offers many trails with beautiful scenery for hiking and picnics and the owners have provided picnic backpacks to make your experience carefree.
End your days back at the cottage for a BBQ dinner or gather round the fire pit to roast hot dogs and marshmallows while singing camp songs, what a way to end every day at this famtastic cottage and property!
