Your family will never feel more relaxed or at home than after spending a holiday at this island cottage. Our family has been vacationing here since our boys, who are now in college, were just toddlers. We rented the house for several summers from the owner and builder of the cottage. We loved this place so much that when he finally decided that he wanted to sell it, we had to buy it. He still comes out to the cottage every year to share a beer, sit in the sun by the water, and tell us about the history of the island. Moss Island was the original spot of an icehouse along a river before the Trent Severn was dammed up. The island’s boathouse was built on its original foundation. During the 1950’s a small fishing shack was built on the crest of the island. In the late 1980’s our friend, the original owner, took this fishing shack, gutted it, and built a beautiful three bedroom cottage. Every attention to detail was paid when he built this cottage. This cottage was his dream house and it is an oasis for a family to enjoy their summer vacation in. Swimming, boating, fishing, and roasting marshmallows next to the water’s edge are all waiting for you…. 6 PERSON MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY - NONNEGOTIABLE
