Please Note: The water levels in Ontario have been fluctuating in recent years. Therefore, some of the photographs of shorelines/beaches on this website may not fully reflect current waterfront conditions.

    This traditional cottage with an amazing view is nestled in the cedars at the water’s edge on Francis Lake. Francis Lake is a beautiful inland lake situated between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, only 15 minutes from Owen Sound and less than 30 minutes from Sauble Beach.
    The 600 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage features a 400 square foot wood deck and concrete patio where you can relax in the fresh air, catch some sun, take 3 steps down to a sandy gradual entry into the water for a swim or splash around in the water. There is also a 40 dock. Water depth at the end of the dock is about 4 feet
    The cottage has a north-westerly exposure and enjoys full to partial sunsets from the front deck and dock. The cottage is a good choice for couples or a family-oriented vacation.
    There are three bedrooms at the cottage each with a window to let in the breeze. Two bedrooms have double beds and the third has 2 single beds. The bathroom at the cottage is a three piece sink, toilet, shower.
    There is great swimming off the dock or bring your rod and try your hand at fishing. If you have your own canoe or kayak you can explore the lake. If you don’t, no worries, there is a canoe, paddle boat and life jackets for 2 adults and 3 children available for your use during your stay (young children always need to be supervised near water).

We LOVE cottage 986 on lovely Lake Francis!

By: Trip Date: 08/11/2023

We are so grateful for another wonderful August week at cottage 986 on lovely Lake Francis!

My family has enjoyed this peaceful place for the past 4 or 5 summers and we look forward to returning next summer!
The cottage is clean, cozy and well-equipped.
Decor is thoughtful, with new touches added each summer.
Highlights for us are:
🩷GLORIOUS sunsets by the perfectly placed fire pit
🩷 swimming, kayaking and paddle-boarding (kayaks provided … we bring my our own paddle board) in the clean, shallow lake
🩷 QUIET, friendly neighbours
🩷 being the perfect distance from the main road – safe, quiet and still convenient
🩷 charming solar-powered lights arranged around the property, so that everything glows under the stars

Five stars for cottage 986!
