Cottage Profile A picturesque chalet-style cottage located in Pretty River Valley - this four-season property is located on a large 5 acre lot in southern Ontario's recreational heartland close to Collingwood and the Beaver Valley. The renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1500 square foot cottage is an excellent year-round vacation choice for families or small groups with something for everyone to do no matter the season. On your way to the property you will travel tree-lined country roads and experience the unique landscape of the Niagara Escarpment with its picturesque villages, river valleys, forests and farm fields. Upon arriving at the prope...rty a winding lane will take you through the trees to the three-storey cottage that is set well back from the road. There is a convenient circular driveway that makes for easy driving in and out. You enter the cottage on the ground floor. This level has slate tile flooring and there is a large entrance foyer. On this main level you will find two bedrooms - one with a double bed and the other with bunkbeds and a futon. Both bedrooms have windows with forest views. There is also a four-piece bathroom on this level with a tub/shower. For your laundry needs, there is also a washer and dryer at the cottage. Take the stairs up to the second floor and find lovely pine floors, a wood ceiling, exposed beams, and a red brick wood burning fireplace that is great for warming up a cool evening. This level also features a bright, spacious open concept kitchen, living and dining area with large floor-to-ceiling windows providing great views of the surrounding forest. When the leaves are not on the trees you can actually see the waters of Georgian Bay! The well equipped kitchen includes a fridge, stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker and more. The dining table can comfortably seat eight. The living room, with its vaulted ceiling, offers a 32" TV (no channels) and a DVD player so bring along your favourite movies to enjoy. Relax on the comfortable L-shaped couch and take in the spectacular Escarpment view - a great spot for a relaxing morning coffee, afternoon conversations, or diving into a good book. A door from the living room area takes you to a narrow deck across the rear of the cottage for taking in the views. The master bedroom, located up in the loft area, provides a queen bed as well as an ensuite three-piece bathroom with shower. The loft offers a bird's eye view with windows all around looking out to views of the Escarpment and the hardwood forest, so wake up to serenity! For taking in the fresh air, the 150 square foot elevated outdoor deck is where you'll find patio chairs and Muskoka chairs, which is perfect for taking advantage of the view while sipping your favourite beverage. Out here there is also a propane BBQ for cooking up some feasts. Take a 2 minute drive or short walk down the road to the ponds that are perfect for fishing and swimming. The upper pond is for fishing and stocked with trout. The lower pond is for swimming with a long dock - the kids will love it! Water depth in the pond is about 8 feet and a canoe and paddle are available for your use, so get out and enjoy! The Pretty River - Beaver Valley area provides great year-round opportunities for skiing, golfing, hiking, cycling, canoeing, antiquing, and exploring. The area is perfect for road riding if you're an avid cyclist, or get out for a hike on Bruce Trail after you've enjoyed a round of golf at any of a number of area courses. In the winter season there is superb alpine and X-country skiing nearby. If you are into adventure, visit Scenic Caves for the Eco-Adventure Tour where you can try out zip-lining or walk across the suspension bridge overtop the forest. Or if you'd like to relax and kick up your feet, enjoy a visit to a Scandinavian spa for a massage and a dip in the hot and cold pools. Just 15 minutes away is the community of Collingwood as well as the Village of Blue - so you're not far from shopping, dining, entertainment, and more while you can still head back to the cottage to your peaceful retreat!
