While most people might only think of the Muskoka region when picturing prime cottage country, they're doing themselves a disservice by overlooking Stoney Lake.

Stretching more than 30 km long in the eastern end of The Kawarthas, the pristine lake is the ideal representation of Ontario cottage country.

In just over two hours from downtown Toronto, you'll find yourself lakeside and loving it -- especially if you happen to be posted up at 1857 South Bay Shore Road East.

Spanning 4,000 sq. ft, the post and beam waterfront home boasts four spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms spread across two floors, providing more than enough space for you and yours to relax and unwind more than comfortably.


As soon as you step inside, you'll notice that no do detail has gone overlooked, with high-end finishes and amenities apparent in every room.

Some of our favourites include radiant flooring, walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, two stone fireplaces, a screened-in Kawartha's room, a wet bar, a butler's pantry, a theatre room, and floor-to-ceiling windows where you can take in the post-card worthy views of Stoney Lake year-round -- to name just a few.

Beyond the home's walls, you'll be pleased to find 320-feet of multi-exposure shoreline, offering both east and west views. Just remember, while many in cottage country settle for either sunrise or sunset views, you'll enjoy both.

In addition to a large wooden dock located off the back of the home, the property also comes with a second dock on its west-facing backlot that overlooks a quiet bay. There's also a two slip boathouse, with an upper (unfinished) loft with a deck, for those looking for a quiet place to retreat to.

If you still need convincing that this recently listed cottage is for you, you can take it all in for yourself below.
