Feel free to reach out and let us know if you have any questions!
The House: Built 8 years ago, the Sweet Pea is situated on the shores of Popeye Lake located 20 mins north of the city of Elliot Lake. With approximately 3000 square feet of living area, this house can accommodate up to 11 overnight guests comfortably. There is 1 bedroom on the main level with a king bed and there are 3 more bedrooms downstairs. Each bedroom downstairs contains 1 queen bed and designed with a theme: Ocean, Garden and Mountain. Each room contains a dresser, closet and mirror so you can easily store your personal belongings. The loft contains a large sectional sofa that has a double bed pullout while the Ocean room downstairs area contains an additional comfortable daybed. The main bathroom contains both a shower and jet tub while the 2nd washroom contains a shower, sauna and large change room area. The walkout basement has a slate pool table (added in October 2020) has a hot tub located off the back porch. The most popular room in the house is the Sunroom, which is a perfect place to curl up and enjoy a good book. If it's chilly outside the masonry fireplace flown in from Europe can be loaded with wood to warm you up while you slow cook a stew or some flatbread in the compartment above the fire.
The landscape: If you're looking for privacy, look no further. This 3 acre lot is very private as adjacent houses are not visible throughout the spring and summer. Relax outside on the deck and dock by the water or enjoy the views from the deck beside the house. Popeye lake itself is a small lake that is perfect for swimming or kayaks and canoes. The small lake reaches the mid 80's in July and will stay warm until the end of September. In addition, there is now a firepit area that was completed at the end of May 2019. This house is located a few mins from the entrance to a large trail system and is a perfect starting point for snow machine or ATV trips. New to summer 2021, there is now a grassy area for games or for kids to play safely. Games provided are horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, soccer nets, croquet, bocce ball, can jam and the new frisbee golf course.
The appliances and kitchen: This house contains one main fridge with ice and water, one drink fridge, deep freezer, dish washer, washer, dryer, oven, microwave, drip coffee makers as well as a kettle, of which all are available for use. A 6 burner barbecue is now available for use to accommodate all of your cooking needs. The kitchen is loaded with everything you need to prepare a large meal with a large number of utensils, plates, glasses, cups, mugs, bowls and most of what you can think of. There is also now a ninja hot and cold, coffee and tea maker. The appliances are all new as of 2023 and the oven has dehydrate, air fry and other functions.
The Extras: In addition to the hot tub, sauna and pool table, currently there are 3 kayaks, 1 kids kayak, 1 paddle board and 1 canoe available for use, along with life jackets. The house contains a variety of books that we will continue to accumulate and feel free to take advantage of the 'take a book, leave a book' if you find something you like. Over 30 board games and a nintendo switch are available including cards and poker chips in case you get stuck with a rainy day. Unlimited high speed internet is now available which means that we can now offer Netflix and Crave TV. Satellite TV has also been installed. There has been a cell phone booster installed in the house to make sure you can send and receive calls and texts. The parking area is fairly larger and there is an area for a camper with electricity hookup. Firewood will be available for use with the fireplace and firepit as long as there is no fire ban outside.
The Winter: The house is winterized and insulated with the masonry fireplace and baseboards heaters in every room as the heat sources. The road in is plowed in the winter and the driveway is shoveled as well and not very steep. In suitable Canadian fashion, I have 2 hockey nets, many sticks and 2 sets of goalie equipment if you want to setup a game in the parking area. There are huge tobogganing hills on the trails nearby and there will be some equipment to use for that at the house. There is a bird feeder outside of the Sun room where you can view various specious of birds come to eat or try to see if you can get a bird to eat out of the palm of your hand.
1. The name Sweet Pea has been given to this house for 2 reasons. The plethora of green both outside and inside the house is much like a pea. Also situated on Popeye lake, this house is named after the lovable character from the Popeye cartoon.
