NEWLY LISTED - September 2019

Welcome to “Trillium Point”, the profusion of trilliums on the property each year inspired the cottage name!

Nestled on a half-acre of well-treed land, this lovely 1,300 sq. ft., split level, 3 bedroom cottage sits on the beautiful shores of Ahmic Lake. The property is the perfect combination of birch trees, wildflowers, rocky shore and beach.

In 1891, Dr. Howard Kelly – one of the founding fathers of Johns Hopkins Hospital – first canoed to Ahmic Lake. His friend told him it was “the most beautiful lake in Ontario.” Since then, Ahmic Lake cottagers have worked to preserve this area of outstanding natural beauty. They measure time by generations and return each summer to savour the peace and quiet splendour.

With most cottages staying in family hands, the shoreline has been kept intact, making Ahmic a lake with only moderate development and very little boat traffic. Desirable Ahmic Lake is popular for fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and sailing. It is part of the Magnetawan River waterway in the Almaguin Highlands with over 60 kilometres of exploring by boat.

The interior of the cottage is the epitome of classic cabin charm with pine walls and wood floors throughout. The open concept kitchen/dining/living area has a great layout with the kitchen on the main entry level and the living/dining room a few steps down from it. A wall of large windows frames a picturesque view of the lake from all three rooms. Vaulted ceilings in the main living area make it feel spacious while the comfortable furnishings and woodstove make it cozy.

The tastefully decorated, lake-facing master bedroom is just off of the living/dining room. Two other bedrooms are on the main level, tucked into the shaded back, making for a great night's sleep.

Start your days with breakfast on the deck. Then head down to the dock to soak up the sunshine from mid-morning to sunset. The cottage is so close to the lake that if parents wanted to get some time out of the sun they could sit on the shaded deck and still keep an eye on the younger kids. The 110 feet of natural shoreline is shallow with hard-packed sand and a small sandy beach in-between the 2 docks, ideal for the kids to safely splash and play. For the older kids the water is about 5 feet deep at the end of the dock, great for jumping in and cooling off. Three kayaks are available for you to use so definitely get out on the water and explore the lake.

During the summer months there are an abundance of special events to enjoy and participate in, including Sunfish Races, a Canadian Dinghy Race, Swim Race, Road Race, Canoe Race, Square Dances, Bar-B-Q, and Fishing Contest.

For short day trips head into the historic and picturesque village of Magnetawan. It boasts the oldest, manually operating Lock System in Ontario which connects Ahmic Lake to Lake Cecebe, waterfalls, Canadian Shield, plus the famous Church on the Rock, painted by Casson of the Group of Seven. Fitness buffs can explore the Dam Trail and the Cornelia Levering Trail for hiking and golfers can boat or drive to the 9 hole course at Ahmic Lake Golf Club.

With a west exposure, it is a must to get back to the cottage for a BBQ dinner. Dine on the deck in the screened-in gazebo and then settle into the Muskoka chairs on the dock with after dinner beverages. What better way to end the day than watching glorious sunsets and stargazing at a true Canadian getaway!
