Property description

This is an amazing property!! The main cottage (3 bedrooms) was built for us in 1992 and was featured in Fine Home Building magazine. The builder wanted to build someone's dream cottage. We asked him to make it feel as if you are outside when you are inside. He put windows all around, including a second level of windows with 16 foot high ceilings in the main room. It looks like a pagoda.

It is also on the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. I discovered it when my oldest child was 3 and have been going back every summer for 28 years. After renting for over a decade, we bought land to build. Bobs Lake is one of Canada's largest wilderness lakes, with 400 miles of shoreline, yet many coves and islands throughout.

This property is on an island. We added a two bedroom guest cottage, and a very romantic adult tree house, with skylight, lead beveled glass front door, and a stained glass window. We also added a half size basketball court, lit at night.

It is a wonderful place for family gatherings because with three structures you can have the privacy you need and also the togetherness. We have lots to do, in addition to the lake, we have a large punching bag and gloves, and lots of board games and puzzles,The sunsets are amazing and so are the sunrises if you are up for them.
