Jump out of bed and wade into the refreshing waters of Georgian Bay, try the sea kayaks , or bicycle to a nearby farm for fresh eggs and natural honey, or horseback riding! At mealtimes you can BBQ on the beach firepit, or on the outdoor gas grill, and dine outside , while admiring the sunset - a different spectacular show each evening! If you happen to get the odd rainy day, indulge in the room-for-2 steam shower or soak in the antique clawfoot bathtub. Or dig through the collection of old vinyl LP's and use the record player,. There is also an extensive library of books. The property is surrounded by trees making it very private, There are different nooks and crannies to tuck yourself away into, with hammocks, benches or loungers, or the swing, where you can sit with you book and your gin and tonic. The back of the house features a herb garden you can help yourself to. Other food supplies are available in quaint local village Lafontaine, which features an amazing gourmet food boutique with local delicacies. Oh! And something to note - very few mosquitos visit us! Probably because of our location with a gentle breeze off the water. More

thanks! Fascinatingly, water levels on Georgian Bay were way up this year after years of decline. As a result of this, the waves threw up a lot of small rocks onto our formerly sandy beach! We spent the fall experimenting with removing the rocks (...More
