It used to be that you would have to go to an exclusive resort to get accommodation that combined upscale living, spacious quarters and fabulous waterfront. Now, you don't have to look any further than Moose Lodge. And ... golfers receive preferred rates at the fabulous waterfront golf course, The Ridge at Manitou.
Let's start in the cottage itself. When you walk in, you will be greeted in the hallway by the light streaming through the floor to ceiling windows that face the lake. Chances are the lake will be calm and a deep blue in the sunshine. To your right, you will see an incredible kitchen and dining area, complete with seating for your entire group and appliances that will delight any chef...and we do mean ANY chef...the AGA appliances carry a legendary quality that few have the opportunity to experience.
Every room in this cottage is a showpiece. The living room enjoys the most spectacular views, and a stone fireplace surrounds a propane stove insert that is decorative in the summer and functional on cooler nights. This is a great place for sharing a special bottle of wine or just relaxing with a book, bathed in the sunlight streaming in.
Down the stairs, those seeking something to entertain them will not be disappointed. A satellite TV/home theatre system makes movie nights an essential part of your stay, and a pub room will have the card sharks going all in for a game of Texas hold 'em.
The bedrooms are elegant and will give everyone comfortable nights, listening to the crickets and catching a cool night's breeze after a day in the sun. The master has an amazing en suite - you might want to make this booking on behalf of your group so you can claim this room.
From the main floor, the deck is accessed from the living/dining room or a bedroom and offers a panoramic view of the property and lake. The large lawn is a place where the kids might toss around a Frisbee before cooling off in the lake. A dock is a great place to catch some sun or jump into the cooling waters - oh and you can use it for boats too, of course. The lake is an interesting one, with a number of islands to explore and circumnavigate in a kayak or canoe.
The town of McKellar is close by for your basic needs - like ice cream (available at the general store, where you will also find an LCBO). If you are bringing or renting a boat, you can launch right across from the McKellar General Store. Parry Sound is just 15 minutes away offering anything you might want in the way of shopping and restaurants. We doubt you'll want to leave the cottage for very long, but if you do, the area has Georgian Bay cruises, museums, golf courses and parks to tempt everyone in your group.
Moose Lodge is for those looking for a cottage that has it all. We think those who book this property will be delighted all around.
