Eels Lake is a glimmering gem in the Haliburton Highlands. It has been a summer escape for cottaging families dating back to the late 1940's. The lake got its name, not from some water creature but from an Indigenous Chief named Eels Cow. Eels Lake is a cold water lake with depths up to 120 feet but averaging 22 feet. The lake has many bays, islands and inlets in its almost 40 miles of shoreline, surrounding the 2,300 acres of inviting water. It supports fish habitats of lake trout, bass and pan fish.
Printed and hand made in Toronto.
Details: This is a 100% linen-cotton canvas pillow, down filled with a 12x18 inch insert (made in Canada). Finished pillow measures approximately 11 by 17 inches.
The backing fabric is a black linen-cotton blend.
