Although the Trent Severn is a weedy water zone, the weeds are controlled by using screens and constant maintenance. The waterfront is managed seasonally and the ability to utilize the water is vast. Our family utilizes the water front to wade and float, and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. When waterskiing and diving is preferred, the short kayak or boat ride to the deeper areas is recommended.
Private – there are neighbours/other cottagers on both sides, it is in the bay. The beauty of this location is there is a babbling brook that is lovely and peaceful one side, and privacy and foliage on the other side.
Beautiful view – overlooks the bay, generally the quietest part of this big lake with mostly only cottagers, floating, swimming and or fishing on this waterfront.
Large property with lots of room to move around and enjoy the beauty of Kawartha Lakes
