Deer Lake is located in the ruggedly beautiful Haliburton Highlands south of Algonquin Park. It is a small, clean, quiet, canoe lake. Approximately one half of the land abutting Deer Lake is crown land. It is a spring fed lake situated at the top of its watershed. There is no marina on Deer Lake. Deer Lake is classified by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources as a “Class 5 Lake Trout Lake.”
This winterized year-round home sits on the north shore of Deer Lake. From the picture windows in the living room overlooking the lake, virtually all that can be seen is a beautiful view of the lake and the crown land on the opposite shore. No other cottages or neighbours are visible, although adjacent neighbours are close by. There is a year-round telephone.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with a coffee maker and new stove, fridge and microwave. There is a modern three-piece bathroom and 3 bedrooms: one bedroom has a double bed; one has two single beds and the third has one single bed. There are two new futon sofa-beds in the living room, each of which folds out to a double bed. There is a port-a-crib and baby high chair. This house can easily sleep 6, with numbers limited by the capacity of the septic system.
There is great cross country skiing at Silent Lake Provincial Park, which is reputed to have the best cross country skiing in Ontario. Algonquin Park offers cross country skiing, dog sledding and snowshoeing as well. When Deer Lake freezes over, there is skiing on the lake. And there are lots of opportunities for tobogganing.
Winter attractions include excellent snowmobiling on some of the thousands of kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails in Ontario. Deer Lake is conveniently located near the junction of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) Top Trail E and the Paudash Trailblazers Snowmobile Club (PTSC) Trail No. 14.
No smoking and no pets in the cottage.
