Boat rentals are possible in Coboconk at Balsam RPM or in Rosedale at the Rosedale Marina. You would need to trailer the boat to either the Elliot Falls launch or the Lutterworth Township launch. You can dock the boat at the cottage for the duration of your stay.
One of the most popular destinations is the Wolf Centre in Haliburton. If the wolves are visible, it can be a real thrill and also educational.
One of my personal favourite local attractions is the Highland Cinema. The owner has created a crazy multiplex, in the middle of the forest, that shows first-run movies with digital/HD quality. He has collected a mind-boggling array of movie and 20th Century memorabilia that adorns each passageway. It is worth the ticket price just to see the place.
Note: The house was built in 1989 as a duplex and retains that structure today. The rental unit is the upper unit of the house shown in the photos. It is HUGE – three ample bedrooms, full bath and kitchen, and a 35 x 17 foot “great room” with tons of lounging space and a fireplace/woodstove.
Renters have a private entrance to their unit as well as a shared entrance which may be preferable in the winter. The two units are entirely separate and private.
The lower unit is owner-occupied. I work from home and my schedule varies, week by week. My work involves a lot of writing. You will barely notice I’m there unless I’m gardening or cutting the lawn.
Please feel free to discuss this, or any aspect of the property, with me at time of booking.
