Three Owls Cottage is a waterfront cottage on St. Joseph Island, Ontario, 45 minutes east of Sault Ste. Marie, and one mile from the village of Richards Landing. It is newly renovated, but dates back to the 1940s. The cottage has a private sandy beach about 100 feet wide and 50 feet deep, with an excellent swimming area and beach volleyball net and ball.
The cottage can sleep up to 7. There is a bedroom with a double bed, and a double bed and single cot in the beautifully bright sunroom looking out to the water. In the bunkie/laundry there are two single bunk beds, with room for an extra cot. Sheets, towels and pillows are provided.
The cottage has wireless internet, on-site laundry facilities, and a 3-piece bath. There is a television with VCR and DVD player and a limited library of movies (but no cable or reliable channels). A large assortment of family games and puzzles will complete your cottage experience!
Water is from the lake, and treated with ultra violet light to make it potable.

a 24-hour clinic and hospital

I am a retired teacher and choral conductor, who enjoys nothing more than being at my cottage, which is next door to Three Owls Cottage. The two cottages are in a private enclave on a huge beach, with woods separating the cottages from the road and other cottages. Bringing back the formerly overgrown beach to its spectacular sandy state has been a labour of love. I enjoy jigsaw puzzles and board games, and have fully stocked Three Owls with some of my overflow of both. I've tried to prepare this cottage so that you can move in, bringing only your food!
