Spring Joy! Cosy Canoe Cottage

1 site · Lodging20 acres · Bancroft, ON
The cottage is at the edge of a large wilderness area. We supply an ultra-safe large canoe with paddles and lifejackets. It's an easy and fun 15 minute paddle to reach the cottage. The cottage is an artistic gem on a safe and quiet lake with beavers and loons and numerous bird species -- owls, herons, hawks, ospreys, and many migratory songbirds. In over 20 years of experience on the lake, we've seen no bears. It's a cosy three-room place with a small bedroom (8x12) with an antique double bed; a main room (16 x12) with a single bed; and a kitchen (8X12). Sleeps 3, max. Access to the cottage is up a short set of irregular stone stairs from the lake. This could be an impediment for elderly or frail people. The lake is not a private lake. There are other cottages. But it's a very quiet lake and often there's no one else there. The landscape is very similar to Algonquin Park's. North Kawartha is famous as the birthplace of the canoe. This is a thinly-populated landscape of rugged granite bluffs, thickly-forested hills and valleys, and gorgeous lakes that remain quiet and peaceful even during the hottest summer weeks. This place was made by and for lovers, artists, poets, musicians, dreamers, writers, environmentalists, ecologists, escapists...and their children. Enjoy!

The best camping near Silent Lake Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

Only a two-hour drive from Toronto, this quiet park is packed with seasonal activities. After a vigorous cross-country ski on some of the 34 kilometres of groomed trails in winter, cozy up to a wood stove in a winterized yurt or cabin, complete with barbecues. In summer, the trails come alive, and the epic, 15-kilometre Lakeshore Trail offers tons of lookouts. For a thrill, bring your mountain bike to tackle the 17 kilometres of beginner to intermediate trails. But don’t miss out on a quiet paddle around the picturesque lake or the chance to simply stretch out on a rock slab in the sun.

Notable campgrounds

  • Pincer Bay Campground - Nestled by the lake, offering serene views and easy water access.
  • Granite Ridge Campground - A perfect blend of forested sites for a secluded camping experience.
