Green Lake Waterfront Cottages

Green Lake real estate is a widely diverse market, with homes ranging from half a million to a million dollars and square footage fluctuating between anywhere from less than a thousand to over two thousand. 

These homes also offer a variety of styles — whether you’re looking for a traditional mid-century modern cottage with a nostalgic feel, or a modern, upgraded property with all the contemporary comforts, there’s a Green Lake cottage for you.

One thing most Green Lake cottages have in common is an emphasis on patio spaces. These cottages have a spectrum of patios from small, intimate affairs just big enough for a few Muskoka chairs for taking in a sunset over the lake, to covered spaces that wrap around the side of the cottage, big enough for entertaining with saunas, hot tubs and fire pits. 

Many Green Lake waterfront cottages have detached garages on the property, making a perfect workstation for those summer projects or a potential second structure to convert to a guest house.

Because of the dense forest in the Green Lake area, you’ll have to remind yourself that there are main roads and amenities like shopping centers within walking distance, as you’ll feel totally concealed in your own private haven.

Green Lake Area and Community

Green Lake is perfect for those looking to stay close to local villages and towns, with West Guilford situated on the east side of the lake, making it no more than a seven-minute drive. 

This quaint community separates Green Lake from Pine Lake and is home to the West Guilford Recreation Centre (a great place to rent out for private events) containing an outdoor ice rink in the winter and a playground for the summer.

Right across from the West Guilford Recreation Centre is a public sand beach on Pine Lake for cooling off on hot summer days.

Other picturesque lakes near Green Lake include:

  • Little Cameron Lake

  • Maple Lake

  • Second Lake

  • Cranberry Lake

Highway 118 also runs along the south side of Green Lake, so the central village of Haliburton is never far, either.

Green Lake properties, while secluded and hidden, contain more road access than some other lakes in Haliburton County, meaning easier access to main roads and less driveway maintenance for homeowners. 

Green Lake also has a fairly flat shoreline all around the lake, making for stunning panoramic views of the lake from nearly every one of its waterfront properties.

Things To Do in Green Lake

Green Lake has a number of local artisan shops for you to explore — grab a bag of coffee beans at Haliburton Coffee Roasters on the south side of the lake, or head two minutes further down Garden Gate Drive to spend the afternoon inside the alluring Haliburton Highlands Brewing building (or outside on their patio).

Also located further down Golden Gate Drive is Abbey Gardens, a place where visitors can explore over 300 acres of gardens and trails with a focus on community-based, local crops and workshops for learning how to live more sustainably.

Experience the beauty of the wildlife in the area by visiting the nearby wildlife reserves and conservation areas. Keep an eye out for native species like deer, moose, and various bird species that call this region home. Bird watchers will especially love the opportunity to observe a diverse array of birdlife in their natural habitat. 

Enjoying a leisurely picnic or barbecue at one of the countless gorgeous parks or picnic spots that dot the shoreline of Green Lake is an amazing way to spend the day with friends and family, surrounded by the soothing sounds of the lake.
