Drag Lake Waterfront Cottages

Drag Lake real estate is typically made up of spacious yet private waterfront cottages separated from neighboring properties by dense covers of thick trees.

Many of the open yards in Drag Lake contain one-of-a-kind panoramic views that lead down to the clear, deep water via your own private sandy beach. Most properties even contain their own docks, making Drag Lake a perfect location to enjoy fishing, boating, and other water activities.

A sloped shoreline in particular areas of the lake makes walk-out basements a popular feature of some cottages, and many lucky homebuyers can find properties with winter comforts such as outdoor fire pits, saunas, hot tubs, and indoor fireplaces.

Drag Lake cottages range from single-level, cabin-style homes, to large, multi-level ranch-style properties. The large sizes of many of the lots mean that Drag Lake homes often have wrap-around decks with covered patios.

On the inside, these homes are featured with anywhere from 3 to 6 bedrooms and are usually between 1,000 to 3,500 square feet. With so much variance between properties, Drag Lake is the perfect place to find exactly the type of cottage you’re looking for.

And if you’re looking to take advantage of the peaceful beauty and favourable location of Drag Lake but are unable to find your exact dream home, plenty of open lots are available to build your ideal lakeshore cottage on and tailor it to your desires.
