Come enjoy this jewel of a cottage.

Two Hours to Heaven is nestled in the woods and designed to highlight the splendor of its natural surroundings. Built by an architect, this peaceful and private retreat is graced with spectacular views and natural light at every turn. The main attraction is the glorious views of Little Kennisis Lake. The cottage faces south and provides amazing sunsets !

On the main level is an open-space living and dining room that is fronted by a wall of glass looking out onto the lake. A wood-burning fireplace sets a cozy mood and takes the nip out of the evening air. Walk out onto the spacious deck a barbecue, loungers, and a teak dining table are ready for leisurely meals. From the deck, no other buildings are in sight - just the trees, water, and sky.

The cottage accommodates 8 people comfortably. The three bedrooms in the main building sleep six, while the bunkie accomodates an additional two people. Each bedroom has a great view, and is furnished with a queen size orthopedic bed and luxury linens. The bunkie is a great hangout for the teenagers, with a bunkbed that sleeps two.

Adjacent to the cottage is a large hot tub in a screened-in cedar gazebo. It is a magical place to watch the sun set over the lake.

Fifty steps lead down to the water. The view from the dock is expansive and breathtaking. The granite shoreline is beautiful, with white pines and driftwood. It is classic Group of Seven country. A patio at water's edge is the perfect spot for a casual lunch. The natural stone fire pit, right at the shore, is the gathering spot for roasting marshmallows and watching the stars. The water slide is fun for kids and adults alike.

The swimming conditions are perfect with deep, clean, clear water with no weeds. There is a small stretch of shoreline where the water is more shallow, however the water is generally deep (+15 feet) from the dock. A canoe is available for fishing or just for tooling around the lake.

The great outdoors is perfectly blended with modern living here. The cottage is equipped with high-speed internet, Netflix, and a flat screen television. There is a microwave, dishwasher, and a washer/dryer for small loads. A grocery and liquor store is 20 minutes away in West Guilford.

If by chance you feel like leaving the cottage, there are several local attractions worth exploring:

* Picturesque roads for walking, running and cycling

* Full service marina connected to Kennisis Lake

* Haliburton Forest Wolf Centre and Canopy Tour

* The gift shop at the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve, sells sustainably-sourced handmade gifts such as wooden bowls. The maple syrup, honey and spreads are to die for!

* Saturday farmer's market in Haliburton, and if you can catch them, the annual fireworks, fishing derby and regatta

We invite you to come, exhale, relax!!!!
