 Private Wilderness Lakehouse






Sleeps 8, Sandy Lake Bottom, Great Swimming, Fire Pit, No Pets

Private Wilderness Lakehouse is located on crystal clear turquoise Sandy Lake, only 1.5 hours from Toronto. It is an inviting pine clad cottage on one floor (3000 sq ft but 2300 sq ft to be rented). The Lakehouse is elevated at 50 feet above the water and is approximately 90 steps to the lake. It is nestled in a very private setting with 300 feet of shore, a 3’x 24′ dock plus 8′ x 20′ floating dock. Sandy Lake is crystal clear with a step down, sandy entry into the water onto a hard sandy bottom for 20′-30′ which becomes softer and deepens to 6 feet about 50’ out. After this the water quickly becomes deeper.

We absolutely loved the Private Wilderness Lake House. It went above and beyond our expectations. It was very clean and much bigger than we expected. The dock was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. Thank you so much for your excellent communication and service! We had a great girls weekend. —Prabhjot K. (Aug. 2018)


Private Wilderness Lake House: the property itself was great. A lot of space to relax and hang out, whether on the deck or having a small fire on the side while playing some lawn games, which was great for us since the weather wasn’t always cooperating. The water was so clear and the perfect temperature to go swimming! We also enjoyed the kayaks they provided to stroll around the lake for a bit, which was nice. —Cassandra (August 2017)
