Sitting tall upon a rock, Crann Bethadh (Tree of Life) is a stunning custom built log and timber frame cottage available for your lakeside holiday!

It offers air conditioning and heat for year round comfort.
The cottage has a great room with large wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, separate dining room and a large loft area with a 50″ TV and PlayStation.

Relax in the saltwater hot tub (use at your own risk) on the large outside deck. For time at the water, there is a sandy beach with a gradual entry into the water or you can jump in off the dock.

Enjoy exploring the area by boat, canoe, kayak, paddleboard or hiking, or cozy up by one of the four fireplaces with a good book and a glass of wine! Delight in a beautiful sunset every night!
Nature abounds at this retreat. In the spring, turtles lay eggs in the backyard. Herons fly overhead, osprey fish in the bay, loons nest nearby and the lucky ones get to see their babies. Some of the best fishing on the lake happens minutes from the cottage or right off the dock.
Well-situated for access to many amenities including a convenience store, gas station, boat launch, water craft rentals in Burleigh Falls. Winter accessible after freeze-up and close to many trails for avid snowmobilers. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy this beautiful lakeside retreat!
