There are no neighbours and no motorboats on the river so privacy is assured.The river flow ranges from extremely slow to swifter, depending on the water levels, and it is warm and of various depths for all levels of swimmers. The granite rock shore provides for easy access to step in or jump in to the water. There are water toys, a kayak and a canoe available. Hikers, runners and cyclists will enjoy many treed trails and laneways.
The cottage overlooks the river and is full of light, surrounded by towering white pine. Relax on the new deck, taking in all of the beautiful surroundings. The land is natural, without manicured lawns and extensive landscaping for a traditional cottage vacation. Unplug and enjoy!

Inside the cottage, you will find a rustic Canadiana themed decor with beautiful artwork, hardwood floors throughout, and slate tiled bathroom. The large open concept kitchen-living room gives a spacious feel. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and a walk-out balcony - perfect for some quiet reading or morning coffee. The second bedroom has a double bed. There is a loft bedroom with a double bed - the loft is accessed by a Japanese ladder, and there are wood railings with tempered glass around the opening. There are large windows with screens which can open to let a nice breeze in. Guests will need to bring their own sheets/pillow cases, bath, beach and kitchen towels as there are no laundry facilities on site. There will be pillows and blankets on the beds.
There is lots of room to prepare and enjoy meals, and relax for playing games or reading by the fire at the end of the day. Alternately, spend your evening toasting marshmallows over an open-air fire, or head down to the river for some fishing.
This "eco" cabin is fully wired and is "off the grid" using solar system energy. The cottage is wired with 12 volts (you can recharge devices using a 12 volt car charger plug that you bring with you as there are outlets for this in the cottage but you cannot plug in 110 volt appliances). The high efficiency wood-stove keeps the cabin toasty in the winter. The fridge and stove-top run with propane (there is no oven). There is a propane BBQ. There is hot and cold running river water in the kitchen and bathroom sink, shower and bidet. Bottled drinking water must be brought in from town, where you can fill up for free. There is an enviro-compost toilet, a bidet, and an outhouse.
The cottage is on 400 feet of waterfront that is accessed by a steep path and stairs from the cottage.
We are happy to communicate with guests before their arrival. We will be either in Toronto or out of the country while you stay at our cottage. Our neighbour up the river oversees any issues that may arise while you are there. The cottage is serviced by a local cleaning agency between guests. They also check the condition of the cottage before and after your stay.
