As the weather starts to get warmer, it's time to start thinking about that cottage country life. Luckily, there are tons of waterfront Ontario cottages for sale, and some of them won't even break your wallet. These beautiful homes are all under $250,000, so it's time to start packing your bags. 

Thankfully, there are tons of tiny cottages scattered across the province that are actually affordable. 

Opposed to spending millions on that lakeside mansion, you can spend under $250,000 for something a little more humble. 

While living in cities such as Toronto can often be expensive, with some condos even costing an average of $618,391, packing your bags and moving a bit farther north can become much more affordable. 

Whether you get a one-bedroom cottage for $245,000, or a three-bedroom rustic summer home for $162,000, the possibilities are endless. 

Luckily, a lot of these cottages also come move-in ready. However, a few of them do need a little bit of elbow grease to make them feel more like home. 

Yet, for such a cheap price, it's the perfect opportunity to move out of the city and have a lake in your backyard.
