This Ontario Airbnb Is A Lakeside Spa Retreat With Your Own Private Sauna By The Water

This magical lake house is just steps from the water and there’s room for you and seven friends to enjoy a relaxing summer getaway.

The gorgeous lakeside Airbnb in Ontario has a spacious deck where you can watch fiery sunsets over the water, and it’s only about an hour from the city of Ottawa. The house has a clean, modern look, and you can work up a sweat in a private sauna that has a window overlooking the water.

Set on the shores of Lake Sharbot, a hidden lake in the cottage countryside, you can relax in a lovely blue lake house that looks like it belongs in a Hallmark movie. You can spend days sunbathing on the spacious deck and jumping off the wooden dock and at night you can warm up in your own sauna before enjoying a crackling campfire.

You’ll feel like you’re in a private spa where you can switch from the cool waters of this Ontario lake to a steamy sauna all to yourself. The Panoramic Barrel Sauna is outside, right next to the lake, so you can admire those glistening waters as you work up a sweat in the evening.

The sun sets over the lake and you can enjoy this magical view sitting on the back patio or from one of the many windows in the house. Two kayaks for adults are available, two kayaks for children, a canoe and a paddle board on which you can drift directly from the dock.

The house itself is an open concept, with clean white accents, comfortable new seating, and windows to take in exterior views from every room, including the basement.

You don’t have to worry about getting into your friends’ space because there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms in the lake house. Three of the bedrooms have queen-size beds and the fourth has a bunk bed with a twin mattress downstairs. If you wanted to squeeze in a few more friends, there’s also an air mattress.
