Lake cecebe cottage has country charm and a private lagoon

Blog by Susan Brown | May 30th, 2017

Situated on a level lot amidst 13 acres of lush woodsy greenery, this 2,700 square foot, 4-season, custom-built home is a private retreat set close to the quaint town of Mangnetawan at the foot of the Almaguin Highlands, and is a part of Northern Ontario’s longest fresh water system.

Lake Cecebe is a pristine lake in the beautiful Magnetawan Waterway and is its second largest lake, giving you easy access to over 40 miles of recreational boating opportunities. This historic river was once frequently used by aboriginal Canadians who travelled in canoes along this route from the head waters in Algonquin Park west to Georgian Bay. Magnetawan means “swiftly flowing water” and the river system today is as clear and fresh today as it once was. Lake Cecebe itself has over 20 miles of natural shoreline and the waters are brimming with some of Northern Ontario’s most desirable fish: Bass, Pike, Perch, and Speckled Trout.

This charming cottage has a wonderful covered porch that let you look out over your 1,200 feet of south eastern Lake Cecebe shoreline. A massive private lagoon is a unique feature of this property, and this private cove area can be used for boats, a plane, or as a unique swimming area.

With a wonderful feeling of space, this homes features natural pine-lined walls that reach up to a soaring cathedral ceiling. A wood-burning fireplace exudes the warmth of Muskoka charm, and a conversation-piece chandelier in the living room is a remarkable canoe light fixture; a cheeky nod to the area’s historic past.
The second floor holds a master bedroom retreat: an area with a spa-like ensuite, a private office work space and an inviting lounge area.
Two spacious bedrooms, a cook’s kitchen and laundry room make the heated main floor a welcoming and comfortable space.
