Pine Ridge cottage is in Harcourt Park and sits above Little Straggle Lake with gorgeous views across the water. A series of steps leads down to the dock and waterside seating area and firepit – a great area for enjoying the waterfront at any time of the day or evening. The water is clean and clear – ankle deep at the shoreline with hard sand underfoot, deepening to 6ft at the end of the dock which is great for jumping and diving.
The interior of the cottage has been stylishly designed and decorated using a modern palette of white and green that has created a light-filled, soft-contoured theme that gives a sense of space and comfort while still retaining an overall cottagey look and feel. From the moment you walk in the door you’ll feel at home. A hallway with a newly renovated bathroom to one side, opens into a dining area and kitchen that is well equipped with stainless steel appliances. The three bedrooms are off this area and although small, each one is neatly furnished and offer comfortable beds. The living area is attractively furnished with sofas, wicker furniture and a window seat; there is a TV (for DVDs only) and plenty of board games. Windows overlook the lake and deck which is accessed by sliding doors and wraps around the waterside of the property. A barbecue and patio furniture complete the picture. The cottage is located in Harcourt Park which offers a range of facilities that residents and visitors can enjoy. Free tennis courts, an exchange library in the local Community Centre, Bingo sessions, and other seasonal events. Each week the cottage welcome book is updated with information on what’s on in the community. Please note that visitors are not permitted to bring in their own boats. For active folks, the area is known as the Geocaching (treasure hunting) Centre of Ontario, so Geocaching enthusiasts will enjoy a wealth of caches to search for. The local village of Wilberforce has a section of Agnew’s General Store dedicated to the hobby. There is local access into Algonquin Park at the Kingscote Access Point. The trail head for the Byers Lake Mountain Bike trail can also be found here.
