Ok, first thing's first. Get yourself a map! These directions will help clarify the route better, but a map will help immeasurably.
The cottage is located on Lake Kennisis, just outside the town of Haliburton.
It is approx. 3h from Toronto, so it will take you about 3h+ depending
on where you live. The first thing you need to do is make your way to HWY #48.
Take the 404 until it ends at Green Lane. Exit here and go right (east), at the
lights take a left (Woodbine). Take this until you get to Ravenshoe road, then
make a right. Eventually you will get to HWY # 48, make a left (there are stop
lights). Take this highway north until you pass sutton,
etc. Eventually, it will merge with HWY #12, keep going on HWY #12/48 until
48 branches off on its own again. Follow 48. Near Coboconk, you will meet
up with HWY #35. Take this north (a left). Keep driving on until
you hit Carnarvon. You then take HWY #118 east, a right. Follow this until
you reach West Guilford (13 km away). Turn left onto County rd. #7. Whatever
you do, just keep following this road. It will turn into Wilkinson rd.
at one point, just ignore the name. When you hit an end, and need to go
left (north rd.) or right (little kennisis rd.), take a left and head towards
Kennisis Lake. Soon after, you will pass a bridge, the first of three.
Be careful with your driving since the roads are narrower, of lower grade
ashphalt, and are very windy, don't go over 20km over speed limit, trust
me. You will pass two more bridges and then you will make a left at Alexandra
dr. (now Champlain). You know you have gone too far when you hit the end of the road and
meet up with a dam. Anyway, after the three bridges, make left on Alexandra.
Drive down this sand road and make a right at the first turn. Drive for
a bit, go around 2 corners, and we are on the right, have a gravel driveway, and a 2 car
garage. Sina's car will be in the attractive and shapely driveway. The number there is:
Point form version for idiots (i.e.: all those attending)
- Find HWY# 48, go north
- HWY# 48 will merge with #12, follow it
- HWY# 48 will split, follow 48
- At Coboconk, take HWY# 35 north, a left I think.
- At Carnarvon, take HWY# 118 east, a right.
- 13km away, at West Guilford, take County rd. #7, a left.
- Keep following this until you need to go either left or right, go left.
- Pass the 3 bridges.
- If you see a dam, you've gone too far.
- Right after third bridge (30sec drive), take left at Alexandra dr.
- Make first right (you either go straight or right)
- We are at #226
- The number is (705) 754-1836
