Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths
We live in Toronto in the Danforth Riverdale area. We love to spend weekends at the cottage, skiing in the winter and fishing in the summer and hanging out on the dock. We are still working and raising our family and over the summer we only have a couple of weeks available to enjoy the cottage. So when we can't be there we like to make it available for others to enjoy.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Owner chose Washago
We have been cottaging in this area for many years and enjoy that there are lots of local attractions to keep us busy year round. Our cottage is rented mostly by families on summer vacation or small groups looking for a peaceful retreat. This would not be a good party house.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage sits right on the edge of the water and the sunroom offers a 160 degree view of Lake Couchiching. The dock is unique as it extends over 60' off the shore over Canadian shield rock, but has a large seating area that receives the sun early and lasts throughout the day. It's a great place to relax.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Max guests:10 (sleeps up to 8 adults)

Thanksgiving at the Cottage
We wanted to try something a little different this year for our family Thanksgiving get together. Renting the cottage turned out to be an excellent weekend getaway with our extended family (9 of us)
The cottage itself' is very well equipped, very clean, with comfortable beds. The picture of the sunroom/3 season room does not do it justice. This space is very bright, spacious and affords terrific views of the water and beautiful sunsets.
The property itself is as well maintained as the inside. Oak Point Rd is a lovely quiet dead end road lined with beautiful trees and quaint cottages. Perfect for walking!
We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning next year.
Fall in Canada
We recently traveled from Southern California to spend a few days in the Toronto area and decided to travel up to Lake Couchiching and we are so glad that we did. Our stay here was perfect! We sat out in the sunroom every evening with a glass of wine and every morning with a cup of Tim Horton's coffee (wish we had it in So. Calif.) to enjoy the beauty all around us - Fall colors, beautiful water, Canadian geese, not to mention their beautiful, comfortable home. We all had large comfortable beds to sleep in (and that doesn't always happen) and we had everything at our finger tips. We traveled to small towns such as Bala and continued our Fall Color experience, along with antique hunting. We would highly recommend staying here and we hope to come back. My husband had hoped to fish right from the dock, but the water is shallow, so he had to seek other spots for fishing....But the fishing was very good...Water, water everywhere!
