Welcome to Straggle Inn!
This beautiful waterfront property (150 feet of frontage) in Harcourt Park, Ontario, provides a great family vacation or romantic getaway! A perfect sunset can be seen from the front deck. Or, if you prefer, you can enjoy the sunset from inside the cottage through the front windows! The lake is clear, deep, and calm; perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or just watching while reading on the dock.
The location of this cottage getaway and its numerous lakes and hundreds of kilometres of trail make it a dream come true for swimmers, fishers, hikers, naturalists, quaders, motorcross riders and snowmobilers. Of the park's 17 spring-fed lakes, only eight have cottages along their shorelines. The use of motors is restricted to four lakes including Little Straggle which this cottage is situated on. The other lakes are designated as no motor boat lakes.
Located in the Haliburton Highlands, the park is 107 miles northeast of Oshawa and Hwy. 401 and is approximately 163 miles from Toronto. It is halfway between the Village of Haliburton and the town of Bancroft, positioned in the Township of Harcourt. Fishtail Lake is to the north, Elephant Lake is to the east, Farquhar Lake is to the south and Algonquin Park is only a short distance north. Separating this private community from this internationally famous game reserve is an area of more than 75,000 acres that has been declared an area of 'No Further Development' and remains a wildlife preserve in perpetuity. Due to member-owner organization, everyone is particularly sensitive to protection of the environment and takes responsibility for the land and water quality.
