About The Caird Cottage

Luxury four-season family cottage on Chandos Lake (North Kawartha, less than 10min from Apsley). Weed-free water with rocks along the shoreline which turns into a nice sandy bottom that has wade-in entry (usually about 12 inches at shoreline) and deep off the dock. Perfect for swimming! Southern exposure allows for all-day sunlight with stunning sunsets you can enjoy from the large balcony, dock, or one of many sitting areas. This cottage sleeps maximum 14 (crib provided for infant on request) and includes 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 2 kitchens. Plenty of water toys including 2 kayaks, canoe, and paddleboat. Wood burning fireplace, gas fireplace and outdoor firepit. Lots of DVDs, satellite TV, board games and puzzles for those rainy relaxing days. Frog pond with waterfall on site.

The Lake

Chandos Lake is in the Atlantic watershed. It is a head lake, fed mainly by springs. Prior to 1937, Chandos Lake was known as 'Loon Lake' due to the presence of hundreds of nesting loons. The lake is in the shape of a reversed L, with three main bays: West Bay, South Bay, and Gilmour's Bay.

The Experience

While enjoying your stay at The Caird Cottage, you will have the opportunity to relax on the lakeside hammock, leap off the dock, soak up the sun, curl up next to the wood-burning fireplace, roast marshmallows at the fire pit and enjoy spectacular sunsets. 

Local Attractions

Some amazing local attractions include 2 golf courses, Chandos public beach, ATV/Snowmobile and nature trails, Gut Conservation area, Silent Lake Provincial Park, Petroglyphs Provincial Park, and Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park. Boat rentals available at Chandos Lakeview Marina.
