There is a 750 foot private road leading to the cottage and the
cottage property has been kept as much as possible in its natural
state. The 3 bedroom 1250 square foot cottage is nestled in the

dining room, and a lower living room.

patio tables with umbrellas and 10 chairs. The outdoor deck is a
great spot to relax with a good book, enjoy a cup of tea, or catch
up with family and friends. From the cottage it is just a short
stroll to the shoreline. The natural treed shoreline opens onto
a 30 X 40 foot floating dock at the end of a 20 foot dock causeway.
On the dock there is a picnic table, umbrella and Muskoka chairs.
It's a great spot for taking in the lake view, lovely sunrises and
sunsets, catching some sun, or relaxing with a good book. There
is a small sandy beach area sheltered by the dock that provides
easy access to the lake making it ideal for wading and playing in
The water depth between the shore and the dock goes from 0 to 7
feet. The water on the far side is about 16 feet deep if you prefer

Nice location with access to multiple lakes.
Reviewed by alanrobinson2016 on 09/13/2016
Cottage was spacious with nice wood flooring and plenty of kitchen cupboards. Also numerous small appliances available for use as well as a good dishwasher. Great large dock but it is in need of some repair - which has been started but needs to be finished. Private location with lots of trees and access to 3 lakes. Easy drive to Parry Sound. Unfortunately only one of the two canoes was usable. As well the gas barbecue burners were in such poor condition that the barbecue couldn't be used - but there was a charcoal barbecue as well which substituted nicely. There are some strong urine odours that suggest that some pets may have had some accidents on some bedroom carpets and possibly the couch. Had everything been functional and as clean as advertised it would have been a fair price. However, considering the current state of dock, carpets, canoes and barbecue it is probably overpriced.
