The place: An upper-crust take on a classic log cabin, located on Lake Onawa near Hunstville.

The history: The cabin, the only property on Lake Onawa, was built in 2005 on 189 acres. Despite luxurious touches like a custom-designed kitchen, marble entry and floor-to-ceiling fireplaces, the house doesn’t intrude much on the shoreline, making this some unusually pristine canoeing territory.

Big selling point: This is an ideal cottage for quiet types. The property is surrounded by 400 acres of Crown land, so it’s private. The buyer won’t be hearing any wild dock parties nearby or lending firewood to neighbours.

Possible deal breaker: There’s no boathouse and the lake is only about 500 metres across, so large boats aren’t an option here. On the brighter side: no noise from giant outboard motors.

By the numbers:

• $2,695,000
• $5,274 in taxes (2015)
• 4000 square feet
• 2600 feet of shoreline
• 189 acres
• 4 bedrooms
• 3 bathrooms
• 3-car garage
