Pintwala Cottage on Isabella Island near Parry Sound has an old fashioned feel-good charm about it with modern amenities. A lovely breeze comes down the channel on hot days to cool you off. We offer comfortable eating areas inside the cottage, in our screened in porch as well as on the upper deck, which also has a large umbrella to keep the sun off while enjoying lunch.

The bedrooms are in one area of the cottage closed off by a door if you wish to keep that area private and quiet. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are open concept, facing large windows that overlook trees and the water.

The bunkie has a large open deck as well as a screened in porch with seating and a table. There is a room with a composting toilet in the bunkie for convenience at night rather than walking out back to the outhouse, which is in good condition. For further convenience, there is a private outdoor shower provided. Our intent was to discourage washing in the lake for environmental reasons.

Located on Isabella Island, Pintwala Cottage is easily accessible using Boat Taxi Service at Georgian Bay Marina: 99 Rosepoint Rd, Parry Sound ON – Ph. 705-746-9559

A sitting area off the bunkie bedrooms has a loft overhead allowing for 2 people to sleep on the queen air mattress. No standing room in the loft. A ladder is in place to use if the loft is to be utilized.
The bunkie has a private room with a sink for brushing teeth. We do not have running water in the bunkie.
There is a composting toilet for convenience during the night when needed.
We recommend using the outhouse during the day when possible.

Cottage water: can be used for bathing, washing dishes and clothes, and cooking – not potable. You must bring your drinking water. There are free taps to fill water containers as you drive into Parry Sound along Bowes St. in front of the Farmers Market. We refill ours at this spot.

Kitchen details: fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender.

The interior is sided with cedar and pine in some rooms. We have a wood stove if temperatures ever get down to an uncomfortable level which is very rare in the summer months.

Indoor entertainment: board games, books, cards, puzzles, DVD and CD player, dart set, movies, VCR satellite TV and stereo music player


The cottage exterior is wood siding which adds to its charm. Fire wood is under the screened in porch if needed ($25.00/cart or wheelbarrow). There is a fire pit in front of the main cottage. It is very important to be smart about lighting a fire. If there is fire ban on you will be heavily fined. Check the Parry Sound website for fire bans – zero tolerance for this. We as owners are very cautious with fire on the island. The ground is very dry, heat can travel along the roots and pop up anywhere on the island, we could lose not only our cottages but also our trees and our lives.

You will see 2 canoes, 2 kayaks, a 2-person water bike and a small sailboat available for your use. They will be lying upside down on logs, please store them where you find them. Since water levels can rise with a wind change please move the water toys off the beach otherwise you may or may not find them floating around the next day.

The property is flat, sloping upward towards the cottage, there is a ramp and a push cart to make it easier to load and unload the boat at the dock.

Child/elderly friendly
Dock 8’ x 80’-100’ long – 12 to 15 feet deep, can fit 4 x 20’ boats

Upper deck off the screened in porch: 12’ x 16’, lower deck: 20’ x 15’

Sandy beach on part of waterfront
2 sandy play areas for children – in case water levels are as high as they were in the summer of 2016, one of the play areas has been made much smaller but very safe
Great swimming
Great for use of small water craft like kayaks
Great diving off the end of the dock then swimming over to the slide raft
No quick drop offs in the water
Few weeds – we try to control weeds near the dock; there are weeds on one side of the property where we keep the canoes and kayaks. We pull weeds regularly along the beach swimming area.
Walk-in entry – starts sandy then gets muddy
Clump of rocks that kids like to play around located just off the beach along the shallow part of the dock
Water shoes recommended for kids since the ground around the cottage has the odd rock and tree roots protruding above ground
Play areas for children: in front of the main cottage, and between the cottage and the bunkie
