This newly built $2.99 million cottage has a private beach and lakeside sauna

You don’t have to live in the GTA to enjoy contemporary luxury. The cottage at 1767 Chandler Dr. in the Haliburton Highlands offers exactly that, with the bonus of being lakeside. It sits on a 3.5-acre lot and comes with 436 feet of private shoreline on Drag Lake.

In addition to five bedrooms and three bathrooms, the cottage has two massive outdoor decks and a sauna right next to the water. It was newly built in 2021 and currently on the market for $2.99 million.

To say the living room is grand would be an understatement. A wall of windows provides an unobstructed view of the lake to bring the outside in.
