The Kawartha region is a beautiful area to explore. Whether you are looking for a half day driving tour, or a place to walk the dog; a day out on the beach or in our capital city; a restaurant to give the cottage cook a break or an amazing delicatessen for finding those obscure ingredients, we have it all for you in our cottage guide. These are some of the things we include to make your stay a fantastic one:
The Chocolate, Cheese and Beer Tour
Oh yes, chocolate, cheese and beer do mix…..well it may not be to everyone’s taste, but this super driving tour takes you to a cheese factory, a micro brewery and…..drum roll please….The World’s Finest Chocolate outlet store! This is a great trip to take when the weather may not be as pleasing as you want it to be.
If you’ve never heard of geocaching, take a quick look at Cottage Caching . At the cottage you’ll find a geocaching package with a handheld gps unit preloaded with dozens of caches in the area, along with driving maps of how to get to each one. We’ve even included recommended half day and day trips with all the instructions you need to get going on this great game. You can even walk from the cottage to find your first cache – one we’ve hidden just for our guests!
We welcome dogs at Osprey Cottage and you’ll find a welcome pack for your pet when you arrive. This includes a few goodies, a temporary tag with the cottage address and telephone number, information on local emergency vet centres, and a list of great places to take pooch for a walk. We know its tough when you travel with your pet to find good walking routes so we’ll show you the places the locals go.
Canoe & Kayak Rentals
There’s two kayaks and a paddleboat at the cottage so you might be happy just exploring with those. if you want to go further afield, you’ll find details of places where you can rent a canoe or a kayak for a day or half day
