Cottage of the Week: $900,000 for a waterside cabin in the town that inspired a Tragically Hip song

Cottage of the Week: 27 Mill Street, Bobcaygeon

Address: 27 Mill Street
Neighbourhood: Bobcaygeon, Ontario
Agent: Saskia Sevink, Century 21 Pinnacle Realty Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $898,000

The Place: A log cabin custom built 12 years ago in the Kawartha Lakes area.

Bragging Rights: The Tragically Hip’s popular, cryptic song “Bobcaygeon” celebrates the town’s constellation-filled skies.

Big Selling Point: The expansive deck has a hot tub, several areas for relaxing and an outdoor kitchen with a bar, which means you really only have to go inside to sleep.

Possible Deal Breaker: The heart-shaped Jacuzzi tub in the master ensuite is less swanky spa and more Niagara Falls honeymoon suite.
