A new listing in Ontario’s cottage country is an alluring one for anyone in the market for an enriching lifestyle shift.
Haliburton’s picturesque Oakview Lodge & Marina, located on Little Hawk Lake, is for sale for $2.8M.
Here, owning a stunning family cottage can come with a profitable integrated commercial enterprise with multiple complementary revenue streams -- and employment opportunities for the whole extended family.
Over the years, the beloved lodge has been run with a focus on a licensed restaurant, shared accommodation, and marine services, with docks that accommodate over a dozen boats.
The property offers the perfect family compound. The 11-bedroom, 10-bathroom primary cottage features wide-open spaces that lend themselves to entertaining and family bonding. While sprawling and renovated, things like a massive stone fireplace (just one of many fireplaces), exposed wood, and sloped ceilings offer a distinct cottage feel. What’s more, the ample lake views provide a constant reminder that the city grind is seemingly worlds away.
The decided star of the show of the main home, however, is the wraparound screened-in porch -- a perfect spot for family games like ping-pong or group meals.
The property also features a bar, a pristine catering kitchen with top-of-the-line equipment, and a large fire pit that that accommodates all cottage guests. Meanwhile, a covered hot tub overlooks the lake, offering a side of soul-soothing views with your soak.
Two smaller cottages offer income-generating potential in the form of short-term vacation rentals. Of course, the income-generating offerings of the rentals and the marina at Oakview Lodge & Marina have the potential to offset some of the costs of cottage ownership.
