Pintwala Cottage on Isabella Island near Parry Sound has an old fashioned feel-good charm about it with modern amenities. A lovely breeze comes down the channel on hot days to cool you off. We offer comfortable eating areas inside the cottage, in our screened in porch as well as on the upper deck, which also has a large umbrella to keep the sun off while enjoying lunch.
The bedrooms are in one area of the cottage closed off by a door if you wish to keep that area private and quiet. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are open concept, facing large windows that overlook trees and the water.
The bunkie has a large open deck as well as a screened in porch with seating and a table. There is a room with a composting toilet in the bunkie for convenience at night rather than walking out back to the outhouse, which is in good condition. For further convenience, there is a private outdoor shower provided. Our intent was to discourage washing in the lake for environmental reasons.

The cottage exterior is wood siding which adds to its charm. Fire wood is under the screened in porch if needed ($25.00/cart or wheelbarrow). There is a fire pit in front of the main cottage. It is very important to be smart about lighting a fire. If there is fire ban on you will be heavily fined. Check the Parry Sound website for fire bans – zero tolerance for this. We as owners are very cautious with fire on the island. The ground is very dry, heat can travel along the roots and pop up anywhere on the island, we could lose not only our cottages but also our trees and our lives.
You will see a canoe, 2 kayaks, a 2-person water bike. They will be lying upside down on logs, please store them where you find them. Since water levels can rise with a wind change please move the water toys off the beach otherwise you may or may not find them floating around the next day.
