Sleeps 10, Great For Children, Beach, Sunsets, Large Deck, Awesome View, Large Docks, Great Swimming, Pet Friendly

The most appealing features of our cottage are privacy and spectacular views. Set on a 10 acre island, a short 5 minute boat ride from the marina, it is ideal for people who value their privacy and love the water. There are only two other cottages on the island, at the opposite end, with natural forest between. The cottage is right on the water, facing west with a huge deck from which to watch the stunning sunsets. The guest bunkie, also on the water, faces east. There is a private protected bay with a boat and swim dock, facing east for morning sun and a swim dock and swim raft in front of the cottage, facing west. No manmade landscaping, just natural red pine forest, with a mix of other pines plus a few hardwoods.

Our cottage is very simple, old-school, if you will. It is a 3 bedroom early Viceroy (1970), a wall of windows across the front (living room and kitchen) and three bedrooms across the back. While comfortable, it is not fancy or fully renovated. However, the bathroom is indeed fully renovated with a lovely walk-in river rock shower with a rain shower head. The cottage is insulated with baseboard heating throughout and has a charming Elmira Airtight woodstove in the living room.

3 bedrooms and large bunkie: 2 queen beds, 2 double beds

Bathroom: 1 x 3 pc (sink, toilet, roomy walk-in shower)

1 double sofa bed
