LOCATED in Katrine one km. off hwy 11-7 minutes south of Burks Falls & 15 min. north of Huntsville. On the Magnetwan River and access into Doe Lake.

This holiday adventure has the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. Canoe left from the dock that takes you kilometres down the beautiful & peaceful Magnetwan River… take a calm and scenic stroll …or canoe or boat right from the dock around the bend of the River where you can land on a public beach.

Enjoy 2 LARGE DECKS front and back. Dine outside on the back deck with BBQ, gazebo, table & chairs, a hammock to read or relax. Have breakfast and coffee on the front deck and enjoy the view of nature.

We stayed for a week in July 2016. During this time there was construction on the main bridge right beside the cottage, but it never bothered us except when we wanted to go to the park and had to drive around (not the fault of the owners. In fact, when Cottage Ontario found out about it, they gave us the opportunity to change cottages, but we decided to stay). The fact that it is so close to the public park is amazing. Plus we loved the private beach and slide on the property. There's lots of trees outside to shade the house, so it never got hot inside and the cross breeze was nice.

Upon entry to the cottage, we noticed it's a very "homey" cottage. We were two families staying here (4 adults and 3 kids - five year old, and 2 two year olds). We loved the size of the cottage itself. The kids had the bunk bed area to themselves, with their own 3 piece bathroom (which was great as we were potty training one of them at the time). This bathroom had a gorgeous...

Kitchen was bright and well equipped but lacking a personal feel in the welcome and some amenities that we have found in other cottage rentals. The cottage features a wood burning fireplace, however, no wood was stacked inside which meant everything was slightly damp, and there was no kindling provided whatsoever, a dullish axe was available. Seems to be something wrong w/ the flue as even with it opened, smoke came into the house, which accounted for the campfire smell we noted when we first arrived, and unfortunately left with clinging to all of our belongings. Also the barbeque had a tank attached and there was also a second tank, the one attached had only enough fuel to get the barbeque started and the second tank was empty. We started looking quite late for a place to spend a few days after christmas and new years so our options were quite limited, the backyard is huge (long/narrow) but that also means no visible waterfront which is a personal nice-to-have for me in a cottage, it...

Management response:

Dear Jason, I'm sorry to hear about the firewood not being dry and the BBQ tank empty. I had dry wood in the cottage prior to your visit that was used by another renter. As far as the back yard you can view the yard in the pictures of the cottage and see that it's long/narrow. I hope your next...
