Cottage Profile Enjoy the "Life of Riley" at this Lake Cecebe waterfront cottage, plus separate bunkie, located in the beautiful Almaquin Highlands, in the District of Parry Sound, one hour north of Huntsville. It is a marvelous choice for a family-oriented summer vacation. The 3 bedroom, 1600 square foot cottage is fully equipped and tastefully furnished with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Lake Cecebe is part of the Magnetawan River waterway. The lake has over 20 miles of shoreline. You travel a winding tree lined country road to the cottage. When you arrive at the cottage you will be welcomed by a pleasant stone patio area with garden chairs leading to a covered deck at the front entrance. The cottage is nestled in the trees on a slope overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Cecebe. The main level of the cottage features beautiful hardwood floors, and a large tastefully decorated open concept living, dining and kitchen area with plenty of large windows providing views of the lake and surrounding forest. The living room is spacious and bright with a high vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan. There are two cozy chairs and two comfortable couches, a television, CD and DVD player, and wood fireplace - a great spot for a relaxing morning coffee, afternoon conversations, enjoying an evening movie with your family, or keeping the kids occupied on a rainy day. The large dining room comfortably seats eight people. From the dining room there is one door to access the front porch and stone patio area where there is a propane BBQ for your outdoor grilling. From the dining room there is also another door to access a deck with views of the lake and outdoor furniture that comfortably seats six people.

For your convenience there is also a washer and dryer available to take care of your laundry needs during your stay. From the cottage you walk down stairs through the trees and past garden art to the lake. At the shore there is a large 25 foot dock with Muskoka chairs and tables where you can catch some rays and relax with a good book and a great panorama view of the lake. If you prefer, take a dip in the lake or try your hand at fishing from the dock. There is a wood fireplace at the shore which is a great place to sit by the fire and roast marshmallows at the end of the day. The shoreline at the cottage is rocky but the water at the shore is shallow and there is a sandy bottom. The water depth increases gradually but young children will need to be supervised. The cottage comes with the use of a row boat for fishing or exploring the lake. There is a boat launch in Port Carmen if you have your own boat. At the lake you will also find a screened gazebo with table and chairs, and a lakeside bunkie. The bunkie has two double beds and features a deck with two sitting chairs and two lounge chairs overlooking the lake. The kids will love having their own sleeping cabin.
