When a cottage has been in the family a long time, it holds cherished memories. Jane Hillard's father bought a tiny cottage in 1949 and it still belongs to him. The upkeep, however, has fallen on her. Though she occasionally questions if the cost and work of upkeep is worth it, she always comes to the same conclusion. "I'm deeply content and overwhelmed with love for this humble, crumbling place." And, as her son said, "I think that part of my soul is attached to that island." You can create a place like that for your family with a cottage in Kawartha Lakes. It starts with a phone call to us at Kawartha Waterfront Realty.
