Luxe living for a crew of 16 on Little Bald Lake.
Little Bald Chalet and Little Bald Guest House are newly renovated lux cottages in the Kawarthas, and together are great for retreats and family gatherings! Even though Canadian summers are unpredictable, you can count on the beautiful environment of this cottage- its relaxing vibe, and gorgeous ambiance is palpable. Natural landscaping and chock full of all the comforts of home, you will thoroughly enjoy this stunning home in equally stunning surroundings located on the waterfront of Little Bald Lake.
The lake offers wonderful water time – directly in front of the cottage you can wade in which is great for children and seniors, go for deep water swimming in the main part of the lake, which is also perfect for kayaking.
Little Bald Chalet is as stunning inside as it is out. If you prefer to cottage in style, this rental is for you! No roughing it here – savour the comfort in the fully redesigned interior which will feel like a five-star vacation. Although a cottage, it is a fully equipped upscale home, and just that much better for being on the lake. If you appreciate the feel and comfort of beauty and comfort in tandem, you will love this chalet! You are surrounded by its palpable relaxing vibe, and gorgeous ambiance “ahhh – insert deep breath here” the moment you hit the driveway. Natural landscaping greets you amidst ample parking.
You arrive at the front door, enter the kitchen and main space which houses the sitting room with expansive ceilings and overlook from above. The main floor holds two bedrooms and one bathroom. The see-through staircase beckons you to the rear where the property continues to shine – dock, large firepit and coordinating “ice hut’ for the unique pleasure of glamping even closer to the water’s edge. Up the stairs are two more fully equipped bedroom suites and Lux ensuite bathroom. The lower level features a walk out to flat water access, and continues to share in the comfort and delight of a large sectional, secondary family room, TV and two additional bedrooms and one more bathroom.

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, a short kayak or boat ride to the deeper areas is recommended.
Water shoes not needed
