You’ll love our place because of the views, the location, the contemporary yet cottagy vibe, the beautiful sunsets, the seclusion and privacy, and the short distance from Toronto. Our place is close to restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities and nightlife. It is great for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). All lakeside doors open to give an indoor-outdoor feel. This cottage has been newly renovated and professionally, thoughtfully designed.
This four bedroom, two bathroom, fully equipped cottage was completely renovated from the ground up in 2015. Built in the mid-1950s, it's unique, post-and-beam structure gives it a contemporary, Frank Lloyd Wright vibe, while still keeping the cozy and comfortable feeling of a cottage. Natural light abounds, with each room and area offering a comfortable and unique feel and decor that will please any taste. Fully air conditioned and heated, with state-of-the-art appliances, multi flat-screen televisions equipped with Apple TV, Netflix and more, an inside-outside Sonos sound system and much, much more mean city slicker living in cottage country. Outside, the gardens offer more than an acre of space to roam and relax, either in the front English garden or out back facing beautiful Lake Simcoe. Sunsets are one of a kind. Year round, our cottage is an oasis of enjoyment and tranquility.
Guests have access to a private beachfront and dock, where shallow waters make it ideal for swimming, particularly young children. Kayaks and other water and land equipment are for guests' use, as is a full two-story outdoor play set for kids. Across the street, guests also have access to private tennis courts and a baseball diamond / play area exclusive to New Gamebridge Beach residents. For a more public vibe, public beaches and splash pads in Beaverton and Orillia are just a short drive away, as is Mara Provincial Park, a public provincial park situated on the northern shore of Lake Simcoe that provides camping, boating, swimming and other recreational activities.
