Cottage of the Week: $770,000 for a Huntsville cottage with a built-in cabana bar
Address: 1053 Hemlock Point Lane
Neighbourhood: Huntsville, Ontario
Agent: Scott Morrison, Coldwell Banker Thompson Real Estate, Brokerage and John Aben, Royal LePage Lakes of Muskoka Realty, Brokerage
The Place: A cozy, cedar-lined family cottage on Peninsula Lake in Huntsville.
Bragging Rights: The 1,200-square-foot dock has a built-in cabana bar for afternoon brews. Just add Jimmy Buffet music.
Big Selling Point: This cottage is located just across the lake from the popular Deerhurst and Hidden Valley resorts, plus downtown Huntsville is reachable by canoe (though it would be quite a long paddle).
Possible Deal Breaker: So, the décor is a little dated. The (relatively) affordable asking price may leave some room in the buyer’s budget for updates.
