Cottage of the Week: $110,000 for a cute cabin in an old lakefront resort near Haliburton
The Place: A 300-square-foot cabin and shared ownership of Chateau Woodland, a old resort overlooking Kashagawigamog Lake near Haliburton. Everyone who owns one of these former rental cottages pays a small yearly fee to cover the property’s taxes and general maintenance.
Bragging Rights: For a pretty unbeatable price, you get a cottage, the right to the water directly in front of the cottage as well as the use of two beaches, an inground pool and the main lodge.
Big Selling Point: The interior, though small, is bright and has all a couple needs, including a three-piece bathroom and a sleeping loft. If you really want extra space, the neighbouring cabin is also for sale.
Possible Deal Breaker: Prospective buyers can’t use a home mortgage to finance the purchase because of the way the property is being sold. You’ll have to find alternate methods (a line of credit, remortgaging a city home etc.) to come up with the cash.
By the Numbers:
• 300 square feet
• 2 beaches
• 1 bedroom
• 1 bathroom
• 1 parking spot
• 1 in-ground swimming pool
