Property description

A wonderful beach front, southern exposure log cabin nestled among majestic white pine. Watch the mist rise, listen to the loons, and have your coffee on the dock. Canoe or kayak along the historic Mattawa River (Lake Chantplein). Read a book or swim. Roast marshmallows and watch the stars sparkle almost within your reach. Hike to town for a great meal at The Moon or BBQ in the outdoor summer kitchen. It’s up to you. A movie library, WiFi, and lots of board games.

Great romantic setting for couples or plenty of room for the whole family or a group of friends (sleeps up to 8 in 2 bedrooms and a sleep cabin). The main cottage has a great room with a wall of windows overlooking Lake Chantplein (part of the Mattawa River Heritage Waterway). Renovated washroom with shower, pine floors, full kitchen, drilled well, sun porch, wood stove for ambiance, carport, and good cell service.
Come and feel the magic where the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers meet. Located east of North Bay, Ontario, Mattawa Voyageur Country provides endless opportunity for exciting year-round adventures, authentic rural charm, unique places to eat and friendly bilingual hospitality. (visit the Mattawa Voyageur Country web site).

The Town of Mattawa is 3 miles away with grocery stores, pharmacy, hospital and more. Visit the Mattawa and District Museum, 20 Historic Statues, the Clermont Duval Art Gallery and many other small town treasures. Try golfing at the Mattawa Golf ‘n Ski Resort or take a guided nature hike at Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park. Or, simply enjoy the cottage - it’s your holiday!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Mattawa:
We've loved this log cottage for years and when the owners decided to sell their much loved summer home, we were blessed to buy it for our children. It's still a few years away before they will use it, so we are renting it out so that it will still be enjoyed. Every year, we spend Christmas day there as an ongoing tradition and we can't imagine a more perfect setting. What a treat! A wonderful family occasion with a roaring fire, board games, laughs and hot chocolate!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Nature at her best, white majestic pines, clean lake/river, privacy yet only 3 miles from town, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, peace & quiet, marshmallow roast, BBQ, history, museum, art gallery, hiking trails, good & inexpensive golf. And we could go on!
