Why John McKay chose Keewatin

We are very fortunate to have just recently purchased what we consider to be our dream cottage/retirement home in 2012. For the past 10 years or so, we have been renting ourselves on LOTW (Lake of the Woods). For us, we have always chose to rent on Lake of the Woods for its unsurpassed natural beauty, wildlife and overall appeal for lakefront cottage living.

We consider this particular location of our vacation home is an absolute gem and without a doubt was the one we had our heart set on. For us, this home offers the best of both worlds. The combination of having our own private sand beach and a large gentle sloped lot is perfect for our young children, yet this location also offers all the conveniences and amenities within a short drive.

We hope that you enjoy our vacation home as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautiful lake front, your own sandy beach, dock, adjacent boat launch, nearby conveniences and amenities, road access.

Lake Of The Woods Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We've had the pleasure of renting this beautiful lakefront cabin 2 years in a row, and are booked again for next year. This cottage has too many fantastic features to mention including the amazing quiet bay its situated in and breathtaking lakefront views. It's close to all amenities and not to mention majestic hiking trails. It is the highlight of our summer every year!

This property has a gorgeous lake view! Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage because it was on Lake of the Woods and it could accommodate a large family. I was not disappointed. There were 12 of us and there was lots of space for eating, playing games and hanging out. The kitchen was well equipped and again had the extra space for a pantry which had a chest freezer and an extra fridge. We enjoyed the yard space, sandy beach, paddle boat and canoe. The swimming area was ok, but was a little too weedy for the liking of my grandkids. However, there is a great little beach just a couple of minutes down the road which we really enjoyed.

My contacts with John were great. He is very personable and friendly and quIck to respond to any emails and texts. He met me when I arrived and showed me around the property which I really appreciated.

Overall, we had a wonderful time here. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Hi Carla, thanks for the review and great to hear you and your family loved it and had a wonderful time! Thanks also for the heads up regarding some weeds. I typically try to make a habit once a year to remove any weeds between the beach and the end of the dock. My apologies as I didn't do that this past summer. In reading your review, it sounds like there's some needing to be removed. Thanks for letting me know so that I can ensure they're gone for next summer! Thanks again and best wishes! John

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience from the time we first booked up to and including the day we left. The owner (John) was very pleasant, easy to deal with and made us feel comfortable in booking our vacation.

On the day we arrived the owner met us at the cabin and gave us a tour, showing us where everything was. The cabin was extremely clean, and is very well appointed. The games room in the basement was a hit, as was the screen room, especially in the evenings! Outside, the large child friendly yard has a gentle slope down to the beach to allow for outdoor games as well. We also loved the deck at the beach where we had lunch at the picnic table almost every day! There was lots for our family to do both in the cabin and out, including the use of the canoe and a paddle boat! Also, just a nice to know is that Keewatin Beach is only about a 5 minute walk away, which has play structures for the kids.

The location is very convenient. We even ordered pizza one night! Lol.

We had a great time here. On the last day, we were barely in the car and our children were asking when we'll come back!

Thank you John...we had a great holiday. We'll hopefully see you again next year! ;)

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this great lakefront cabin. My daughter, myself and other family members had a great time swimming, having campfires, playing games and fishing during our week long stay. Has a great little beach perfect for small children. Boat launch is right beside cabin. Cabin is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes etc... The dining room has a spectacular view of the water! This was a place that feels like a 'home away from home! Only about 8 minutes from Kenora! Definitely booking next year! We all LOVED it!
