Our island is about 4 acres, with a variety of trees from white birch, oak, maple, white pine and lots of cedar. We have wonderful swimming right off our dock. Trophy pike, musky , bass, perch, splake, lake trout, pickeral and pan fish abound. Remember, you are in the Great Lakes. Because we are located in a sheltered bay the water temperature is great for swimming and other water sports. The island is conveniently located and easy to get to and from the small marina where your vehicle will be parked.
This is truly a special place offering a great get away with modern conveniences. For those into photography this is the place. You will find fantastic sunsets, wildlife and wonderful panoramic views everywhere you look. I also recommend a day trip exploring Manitoulin the worlds largest fresh water island. You will feel like you've gone back in time, with beautiful pastoral landscapes, split rail fences, inland lakes and quaint port towns offering shopping and great places to eat. But if you are like me, you may not want to leave the bay. For those who treasure nature and a comfortable retreat away from resorts and the city. One of our recent young visitors said 'this is better than Disney!'
We also offer Guided Fishing Excursions from 3 days to 1 week. Our most popular is the Father/Son-Daughter trip. Of course Mothers can come too. We provide the guides, boats, food, bedding ect. Basically all you need is your proper clothing, fishing equipment and camera. We can handle most of the rest. Check out our Video Links!!! Since we tailor each trip to your needs the costs vary.

About the owner: My name is John Dillon. I am presently retired from teaching and various business ventures. I have a wonderful wife, Tes, four great children and two grandchildren. My children and grandchildren have been coming to the island all their lives. We have been blessed to be able to spend our summers in such a special place. As I tell everyone, the island is my therapy. Each summer I come away with a renewed spirit and a clearer head. I am looking forward to growing old, I should say older, and spending more time here with my wonderful family and friends. And I enjoy being able to share this special place with others so they may create lifelong memories of their time with their family and friends on the Island.
Why the Owner Chose Georgian Bay: This is rare opportunity to spend time on a private island in a world class setting. Having the opportunity to catch Trophy Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Muskie and Rainbow Trout. There are also lots of pan fish too.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: A great place to explore, relax , cook your own pizzas in a wood burning oven, hang out in an 18' TiPi, relax in a great wood fired Sauna and photograph lifelong memories.
