Lake Rosalind is a small lakeside community located between Hanover and Walkerton, Ontario. With less than 200 homes, this residential area consists mostly of year-round homes with some seasonal cottages.
Homes in this small town community of Bruce and Grey County offer its residents a lifestyle that’s nearly impossible to find in small town Ontario. Here, residents enjoy a 5-10 minute drive to their place or work or nearby shopping. Yet, when sitting on their decks, enjoying the warm sun and the sounds of children swimming, neighbours boating and the fish jumping, it’s hard to imagine one can be so lucky as to call this home.
Lake Rosalind neighbours Marl Lake and Pearl Lake – two connecting lakes and one right next door. These are private lakes with the only access being that owned by the property owners. Their back yards house their driveways while their front yards offer views and quick access to sparkling blue waters with Canadian geese, white swans, fish that are plentiful and so many unique and beautiful birds.
Most everyone here has a dock, outdoor fire pits, bunkies for company when they visit as well as plenty of welcoming outdoor spaces for relaxing. You’ll find a lot of canoes, kayaks and paddle boaters, a couple of islands to explore, motorized boats and a few jet skiis. There’s never a lack of things to do here – some summer nights you’ll witness children launching paper lanterns into the sky, fireworks on long weekend nights and get-togethers that have included summer music nights, ice skating parties and bonfire get-togethers.
If you’re interested in becoming part of this community, the real estate here offers everything from small cottages to large newer build homes. Properties are very private, and while everyone has their own unique view of the lake, most also have a cedar lined natural fence providing the feeling that the space is yours alone to enjoy.
More and more, Neil Kirstine, Sales Representative for The Kirstine Group, Keller Williams Golden Triangle Realty, is seeing clients wanting to combine their vacation property with permanent living year-round.
