Approaching the Kashe Lake cottage

Drift back in time to the 1940`s and you may begin to understand the Kahshe Lake cottage compound appearing in the distance. Such a private and level property is very rare. A three minute boat ride in a `new to you` boat has you arriving at a choice of docks, one a solid T out front, and the one around the point a classic.

The lot here is exceptionally level, with just a few Muskoka rock outcroppings.

Granite, pine and the cool, clear water of Kahshe Lake beckons. The cottage itself is a three season cottage, but with a lovely granite fireplace that was hand built over 70 years ago.

Three boats are included with this Kashe Lake cottage, one being a 19’ recent model Princecraft deck boat with a 115HP Evinrude engine, along with furniture and cottage/household items.

Some interesting facts about Kahshe Lake’s  name from Wikipedia:

The Indian word Kah-she-she-bog-a-mog is defined in a dictionary developed by early Jesuit missionaries and located in the archives in Ottawa. The morphemes break as follows: Ka-shesheb-agam-ag: ‘where there are-ducks-lake-place’, thus ‘Lake of Many Ducks’; compare Ojibwe jishib ‘duck’; the following are spurious (Carl Masthay, St. Louis, 2009): Kah-Lake, She-Many, Bog-Ducks,a-and, Mog or Maug-Loons, therefore Lake of Many Many Ducks and Loons (researched by Ken Little). Other people swear that it means Lake of Many Islands or “Lake of Healing Waters”. Yet others, especially those with powerful motor boats, nickname it Lake of Many Rocks and “The Minefield”. The lake’s west end is shallow while the east side is deep, yet both areas have many shallow rock hazards with no marker buoys that just seem to appear “out of nowhere” as the waterways are navigated. There is a section in the middle of the lake that is so rugged that if marked with sonar, it appears as the pulses of a heart beat on a pulse reader. These many distinct areas in the lake provide for easy fish locating for avid fishermen.

It is notable that there is a public beach off North Kahshe Lake Road. The beach is a gathering point for residents and cottagers. There are public boating docks and a boat launch. The lake has been featured on several fishing shows, it has also been featured on television, most notably in a Tim Hortons commercial. There are many organized events in and around the lake, particularly Kahshe lake regatta, Several barn dances, End of Summer labour day concert, and Rockhaven Inn craft sale.

3 bedroom home circa 1916

The property features a lovely historic home in downtown Port Carling, on Mirror Lake. This home was built in 1916 and pulled across Mirror Lake in the winter of 1928 – well that’s the story as we heard it. But, here’s a fascinating update on the history of the house thanks to a book given to us by our friend Ian Turnbull of Port Carling.

From Indian River Tales, Compiled by: Anne Duke Judd (ISBN 0-9698716-4-3):
The Moving of Heart’s Content

The old Heart’s Content was built around 1916 at Indian point. In early spring, around 1928 it was put onto two scows, using horses and the high water to help.
Cribwork on the scows kept it level at the old elevation; the scows were borrowed from one of the lumber companies, and Alan Dixon was in charge of the operation.
One scow sprang a leak, and since there was no electrical power at the point, it had to be hand pumped all night. Art Duke and others took turns keeping the pump going.

The next day they set off across the river, but about halfway across Mirror Lake, the steering mechanism on the Vedette broke, and she had to be taken up to Port for repairs. The wind blew the skows and house down to Arcadia point. The center timber caught on trees along the river bank and pulled out – fortunately, the two outside timbers stayed secure and the house remained level.

A second time, the men attach the scows to the Vedette, and pulled their cargo close to its new site on the eastern shore. But because the boat could not tow it from the front, the lines had to be untied while the Vedette manoeuvered to the stern to push it in.

Again, the house got away, the wind blowing it ashore at Schreibers’. By the time it was securely tied at the proper place on the shore, daylight was gone. There was electricity on this side, but it was not very reliable then, so the electric pump was left running overnight.

The next morning, Heart’s Content was moved ashore, and lowered – one crib timber at a time – onto its site at the bottom of Silver Creek Hill.

Here it remained the home of Arthur and ‘Did’ Duke (nee Elizabeth McCulley) and their sons Thomas and Reay until 1948, when the couples retirement home was built. The sign still identifies that home, now the residence of Rev. Tom Duke and his wife Charlotte.

Tom’s main memory of the house moving is the disappointment he felt that having to go to school, and missed the excitement of the move.
