Please Note: The water levels in Ontario have been fluctuating in recent years. Therefore, some of the photographs of shorelines/beaches on this website may not fully reflect current waterfront conditions.

    Townsend Lake Cottage is tucked away on four acres of woods that front the water. It has all the comforts of home. Renting the cottage includes use of a canoe, kayak, bikes, fishing rods, several blow up water-tubes, & some games for outdoor fun. There is a short trail through the woods. On rainy days, board games, card games, puzzles and movies are provided. Or read your favourite novel in the screened-in porch. A large deck overlooks the water and many frogs and fish can be seen from the long dock. A large fire pit by the water and plenty of firewood make for a great evening of star gazing.
    Townsend Lake is a 100 acre quiet lake that is great for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. If you like to golf, Townsend Lake Golf Course is two minutes away and The Ferns Golf Resort is nine minutes away. There are also several conservation areas close by, including Bell’s Lake. Large grocery stores are about twelve minutes away in Markdale or Durham.
    Townsend Lake Cottage is the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the outdoors!
    In the evening enjoy the dark skies and stars while roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories around the campfire.

The Perfect Summer Retreat

By: Trip Date: 07/13/2020

We were so happy with our stay at this cottage! It provided a variety of activities and a peaceful, calm getaway. My daughters loved playing in the wooded area while staying cool in the shade. We often used the canoe and kayaks provided to paddle out to the dock for a swim, or to paddle around the lake watching frogs and birds on the shoreline. The shallow lake was always warm, but cool enough to be refreshing!
The cottage was very clean, bright and comfortable. It was nice to have access to laundry machines and all items in the kitchen. We enjoyed our time playing games on the deck with a perfect view of the lake!
Many smores were roasted over the large fire pit, with provided wood! So convenient that we didn’t have to haul our own wood there!
This was the perfect place to escape the city and have a relaxing vacation with all the amenities! The owner was very helpful and friendly, often going above and beyond to make our stay more comfortable!
