Sleeps 6, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, A/C, WiFi, Cell Reception, Great Views, Walk-In Entry, Private, Sandy Beach, Good Swimming, No Weeds, Good Fishing, Canoe, Row Boat, Linens/Towels Provided, Pet Friendly (TBD) 

This 1920s cottage has been renovated to be comfortable without losing any of the original cottage charm. Surrounded by trees and with no nearby neighbors, the cottage truly feels like a retreat for your family. You can get out and be active, stay home and float on the lake, or just sit and take in the view. Enjoy great fishing of many varieties including pike and muskellunge. Many can be caught right from the dock or you can take the rowboat out about 200’ to the sandbar where fish love to lurk.

The property is between Gull River and Shadow Lake, facing south down the lake. Shadow Lake is a flow-through lake for the Trent Severn Waterway. Since it is deep in the centre and has a high flow rate, it has some of the cleanest and clearest lake water in the region.

The yard outside the cottage is flat and private. On one side there is a fence and trees blocking the neighbors. The other side is an unoccupied property. There is a deck with a screened gazebo, a table and chairs for outside dining and great views.  Full use of the boathouse. Can be used for sitting out of the sun, hanging towels, and storing beach toys when you go up to the cottage.
