Address: 60 Conservation Drive
Neighbourhood: Carling, Ontario
Agent: George Webster, Moffat Dunlap Real Estate Limited, Brokerage
Price: $2‚250‚000

The Place: A five-bedroom cottage tucked into three acres of wooded forest.

Bragging Rights: This place is located on Pleasant Point, and the view looking out into the harbour is, well, pleasant. A pretty spattering of islands is visible on the horizon.

Big Selling Point: The cottage’s one-storey layout means the owner will never have to climb a flight of stairs after a night of drinking and relaxing on the dock. Also somewhat relaxing: since the cottage is right on Georgian Bay, it’s possible to skip the northbound highway gridlock and arrive by water.

Possible Deal Breaker: The muted, rustic decor may not suit everyone, but change is just a few swipes of a credit card away.
