About Lakeside Cottages:
Lakeside cottages in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes was started in the early 1950s by the late Bob & Mary Stenner our road today is called Stenner Road. Bob and Mary had a dream to build five beautiful cottages all facing the lake and only feet away from the waters edge. The cottages were built to a very high standard so it was not long after wards that Lakeside started attracting visitors from all over Canada and the United States enjoying the great fishing and the beautiful scenic views of the lake where you can see for miles and miles stunning lake scenery and for a smaller resort that's really hard to find these days it's a perfect place to relax and watch the evening magical sunsets that just take your breath away and to this very day Lakeside Cottages attracts visitors now from all over the world and is highly considered one of the finest locations on Beautiful Katchewanooka Lake only 3 km from Lakefield village this resort is truly a hidden gem!
