Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: My sisters and I own this lovely place. Our parents purchased it in 1967 and we have spent many summers here. It's the best place on earth!

Why the Owner Chose Kenora, ON, Canada:
My sisters and I grew up spending summers at this magical place. We loved it so much that we decided to update it and we have been really happy with how it turned out. We love every minute we get to spend here, and love to let others enjoy it as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you have never spent the night in a boathouse, then you are in for a treat. You can hear the water below as the boats move around. Storms are a great experience here as they come up very fast and hard, then slowly go away. Hot days are wonderful as your stay is spent mostly above the water on the circular deck that surrounds the cabin, or down below just inches from the water. Feel free to walk the trail that goes around the whole Island.
