    Property Description

    description from owner:

    Fireflies and Turtle Dreams” is a 2002 Linwood cedar cottage on Lake Katchewanooka, 5 minutes from the village of Lakefield and 15 minutes from Peterborough. This eco-friendly home features a geothermal heating and cooling system for great winter heat and cool summer central air-conditioning provided by the Earth. It sleeps eleven comfortably and peacefully on eco-friendly mattresses and pillows.

    The “Eagle’s Nest” is the master bedroom on the second floor with a 4 poster solid pine queen bed, a full wall of windows facing the lake, and vaulted ceiling. It even has its own balcony, three stories up from the ground. There are two other bedrooms on the second floor; the “Tea Party Room”, with a queen canopy bed, and the “Inuksuk Room” with a double bed as well as twin bunks.
    Enjoy a bath in the upstairs bathroom’s soaker tub.

    The main floor is host to a beautiful kitchen that opens to the Santa Fe inspired dining room on one side and living room with wood fireplace on the other. There is a bedroom with a single bed on the main floor, as well as a 3 piece bathroom with shower. The screened-in sunroom is a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast or an afternoon nap. It leads to the mainfloor’s porch complete with picnic table and barbeque.

    The lower level has a bedroom with double bed, a living room area, a puzzle table and a laundry room, There is a full walkout from the lower level to the yard. The outdoor fire pit is the perfect place to enjoy smores and stories well into the night. If you’re lucky, the fireflies may come to dance with you. The sandy beach provides hours of sand-castle-building quality time for the young and the young at heart, while the purple swing and the hammock down on the shore allow for the ultimate in relaxation. Swim out to the floating dock or snooze on the 60 foot cedar dock. There is a sandy beach on shore and the water is a shallow sandy entry. It slopes to approximately 5 feet deep at the swim raft. The water becomes typical lake bottom as you go out and there may be some weeds. It is highly recommended that you venture out into the lake using one of our kayaks. Two uninhabited islands are moments away from the cottage by kayak and it is there you will visit with turtles sunning themselves on rocks and branches, herons, and kingfishers, and, if you’re lucky, the resident bald eagle family. The cottage has a tree fort complete with rope bridge entry and bucket-access for pirate-style lunches to be hoisted up, and there are swings too.

    When you arrive, your beds will be made up with fresh linens with a chocolate turtle on each pillow. You’ll find some local goodies in the kitchen, including a bottle of Kawartha Winery’s wine, a loaf of bread, a tub of Kawartha Dairy ice cream (what’s your favourite flavour)?), and some of our own maple syrup. The cedar dock is a wonderful place to unwind before you paddle off into the sunset in one of our kayaks. Curl up by the fire with a favourite book or fall asleep on a hammock. You might even want to escape to the Lorax’s Cabin, which sleeps three on warm summer evenings. Every decision we have made in creating this oasis has been made with the Earth in mind, but this does not mean we have scrimped on luxury. You will enjoy a week of fun and comfort, relaxation and adventure.
