Water's Edge

Nestled between two branches of Secord Lake, Water's Edge is a true "Up North" cottage. Each of the two branches of the lake offer different lake experiences - so you can have the best of both worlds.  

The branch of the lake in the front yard is more conducive to power boats, water skiing and jet skis. The branch of the lake in the back yard is more conducive to a more relaxed experience - canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, paddle boats, or just to drop a fishing line and enjoy some quiet lake time.

This "Up North Cottage" is the perfect place to unpack and then just hang out on the lake.  

With a deck right on the shoreline, you can spend many hours watching the many boats that run up and down the lake, while enjoying your favorite beverage. Or, you can have an al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner at the picnic table that overlooks the lake. The sandy beach, on shore and in the water - with shallow bottom at the shoreline - is perfect for children.

There is a dock available if you want to bring your own boat, or you can rent one from Secord Lake Marina.

And, don't forget the fire pit where you can sit after dark and roast marshmallows, sing camp fire songs, reminisce about family and friends, or just sit and watch the lights come up all around the lake - a wonderful way to end your day.

No matter what your preference, this is a great place to just hang out and enjoy a quintessential Up North cottage.
