Private island on Georgian Bay near Parry Sound. The island is located in a secluded archipelago of islands about 20 minutes from mainland. With only a few cottages in the area and very little boat traffic, the island is very private. The island is surrounded by crown land and located in the middle of one of the best areas for kayaking in Ontario. Please note that this is a water access property so you must have means of accessing it, or a water taxi can be used (see below)
The cottage is approximately 1000sqft. The cottage features a rustic living room combined with a modern kitchen, a light filled sunporch, two bedrooms with fantastic views, plus a large tent on a platform that acts as the third bedroom (this is often the most popular place to sleep).
There is a picnic table style dining room table indoors, and a teak table set outdoors that seats 6 and features an umbrella. There is a BBQ and one full tank of propane. The kitchen has a small propane stove and oven.
There are many nooks around the island that you can find to sit and enjoy the view, or go for a swim. There are bear chairs down by the water, a small cafe set up high on the rocks, and a few teak lounges near the cottage.
There is a sheltered dock that comfortably fits a 18' boat bow in, and a 24' boat stern in. We provide two sit-on-top kayaks with paddles and life jackets for exploring the area.
You will have access to the entire private island (approximately 1.5 acres).
I am available by phone at any point during the stay. There are people in the area who can respond to any unexpected issues.
Important! Please note that this is a water access property so you must have means of accessing it. We will provide detailed instructions on how to navigate to the island if you are using your own boat. There is a public launch ramp near Killbear Marina that can be used, the island is about 20 minutes from the ramp.
There are water taxis from Parry Sound; the ride is $350 return (the route is very scenic and shares the same route as the Island Queen scenic cruise ship). We can provide contact information for the water taxi.
- This cottage is off the grid. The fridge, water pump, and lights all operate on a small solar system. Cell phones can be charged (signal is strong for most carriers), but no small appliances can be used (hair dryers, curling irons, etc.)
- We're pet lovers too but if you're bringing fido please pick up after him and keep him off the furniture and beds.
- No fires! (other than in the fireplace)
