The Guesthouse Cottage- This cute, comfortable, clean and cozy, well equipped, almost 300 sq.ft. waterfront bunkie/cabin has just about everything you will need for a weekend/mid-week stay away from city life. Designed as an affordable alternative from regular lodgings and located at the east end of Palmerston Lake, it is perfect for 2 persons only who enjoy the outdoors and just need a place to lay their heads down at night. (no separate bedroom)

The Guesthouse can also be used as overflow for guests visiting at our other cottage, The Pioneer. Your hosts are usually available for assistance yet respect the privacy needs of our guests and enjoy sharing our little piece of paradise with the guests of this Guesthouse and The Pioneer. Parking is provided above lake level behind the cottage, access to the Guesthouse is via a common stairwell. The boat launch is a very short distance away.
