Lake Edge is the gem of the Kawartha’s, offering four season fun and activity both on our 12.5 acre property and at the many nearby attractions. Have a look at our ‘Activities’ page to see what awaits you during your stay with us. The Village of Lakefield, a 5 minute drive south, will provide you with all amenities, unique shops and quaint restaurants. Within walking distance is the hamlet of Young’s Point located at Lock 27. There you’ll find shopping, walking trails and great dining. The City of Peterborough, a 20 minute drive south, is home to the World’s Highest Hydraulic Lift Lock, the Canadian Canoe Museum and much more. Lake Edge’s central location is perfect for exploring the local area or planning day trips to Toronto, Niagara Falls, Algonquin Park, Kingston or Ottawa.
Lake Edge Cottages has both one-bedroom and two-bedroom cottage accommodations available. The majority of our cottages are situated directly on the shores of beautiful Katchewanooka lake. Our remaining seasonal cottages are 250 ft. from the shore with our 12 x 40 ft. heated outdoor swimming pool set between the shore and these cottages. All our units offer spectacular views of the lake and sunsets. The central bonfire pit is close by and there is easy access to our walking trails and frog/turtle pond out back. Everyone has access to the shoreline whether they wish to use the swimming area, boat launch, docks or lounging areas.
During the warm weather months, everything seems to be about the water. You can swim in the lake, either from shore or dock or enjoy our 12 x 40 ft. heated outdoor swimming pool. All may enjoy the use of our complimentary rowboats, paddleboats, canoes and kayaks or you can arrange to rent one of our 14 ft. fishing boats with 8 hp motor or our 18 ft. pontoon boat with 50 hp motor, “Ruffin’ It!” Whether you use one of our boats or your own, Katchewanooka Lake is a fisherman’s paradise! Species include perch, bass, walleye, muskie and carp.
During the cold weather months, people still enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing can be enjoyed on the property or nearby. Indoors, you can cozy up to the gas fireplace in our all-season cottages and watch a movie on your smart TV. We also have 4 private hot tubs at certain accommodations through the year, so you can enjoy a comforting soak under the stars.

Special requests are always welcome. If you would like to make your getaway as easy as possible, you may wish to request a Lake Edge Starter Package of your preferred food and beverages, to be placed in your cottage or suite prior to your arrival. Your wish is our command for a nominal service fee.
