This Stunning Stoney Lake Cottage Offers the Perfect Family Escape
If you haven’t ever set eyes on Stoney Lake, you’ve been doing yourself a disservice.
Stretching more than 30km long in the eastern end of The Kawarthas, the pristine lake is the ideal representation of Ontario cottage country. Just two hours from downtown Toronto, you’ll find yourself lakeside and loving it in no time — especially if you happen to be lakeside at 1857 South Bay Shore Road East.
Some 4,000 sq ft. of custom Post and Beam craftsmanship await at this four-season waterfront property. If you read this article’s title, you already know that all this space and artistry equate to offer the perfect family retreat.
Four spacious bedrooms spread across two floors mean that when family time is over for the day, each member will have their own hub to call home. Of course, it also means there’s plenty of room for guests to come visit, ogle, enjoy, and ultimately tell you what a great decision you made buying this property.
An absolute spoil of amenities and high-level finishes also wait at this Stoney Lake abode, including a theatre room, radiant flooring, walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, central air, two stone fireplaces, a wet bar, a butler’s pantry, and more.
But even with all the fantastic indoor features this property brings to the table, it’s likely that the 320-feet of multi-exposure shoreline will maintain its position as the top attraction. The fact that this cottage offers both east and west views is just another characteristic that sets it apart. While many in cottage country settle for either sunrise or sunset views, you’ll enjoy both.

As if this wasn’t enough, the property also comes with a second dock on its west facing backlot that overlooks a quiet bay. So, if sunbathing on the new and spacious primary dock gets you too hot and bothered, you’ll always have a quiet place to retreat to. Speaking of retreats, the unfinished boathouse loft also offers incredible potential to become the perfect spot on the property.
A back-up generator also means you’ll never have to worry about shutting down this experience — no matter the time of year.
So, what are you waiting for? This Stoney Lake dream won’t last long — we suggest you don’t let it escape.
