Why John McKay chose Keewatin

We are very fortunate to have just recently purchased what we consider to be our dream cottage/retirement home in 2012. For the past 10 years or so, we have been renting ourselves on LOTW (Lake of the Woods). For us, we have always chose to rent on Lake of the Woods for its unsurpassed natural beauty, wildlife and overall appeal for lakefront cottage living.

We consider this particular location of our vacation home is an absolute gem and without a doubt was the one we had our heart set on. For us, this home offers the best of both worlds. The combination of having our own private sand beach and a large gentle sloped lot is perfect for our young children, yet this location also offers all the conveniences and amenities within a short drive.

We hope that you enjoy our vacation home as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautiful lake front, your own sandy beach, dock, adjacent boat launch, nearby conveniences and amenities, road access.

5 STARS! Our family loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage this past summer (July) and were very impressed. It was clean, well appointed, and we loved the amenities, both indoor and outdoor. The games room was a hit as were the kayaks that the owner provided. We also loved the location, close to the amenities of Keewatin and Kenora. The owner was very pleasant and helpful, always quick to reply to any questions we had. We also greatly appreciated the owner supplying both the propane for the bbq's as well as firewood, we've rented other cottages in the past where this wasn't the case. The fishing on Lake of the Woods was also spectacular, and there are two marina's close by which made getting bait and fuel very convenient. 5 STARS! Our family loved this place and we all had a great time! Will absolutely try to book this cottage again the next time we are in the Kenora area. Thanks John!

We booked it again for next year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this cottage and we had such a great time! Out of the various cottages we've rented in the past, this place by far had the most amenities and things to do for the kids and our family. The cottage was very clean, and we found the location to be ideal. It was nice having the conveniences of Keewatin and Kenora only a few minutes away. We couldn't be more pleased, and we've already booked again for next year! Highly recommended!

Another amazing week at our favourite lake paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this vacation rental for the third year in a row. What can we say? It keeps getting better and better.

Everything about the property makes our stay easy:

- tons of parking.

- lots of room and beds for guests.

- huge grassed area for the kids to run and play.

- plenty of deck space to lounge in the sun and enjoy a beverage and the spectacular view. The decks all have lots of seating and table space.

- perfect beach and swimming area for the kids (beautiful sand and clear water).

- boat launch flanking the property and a dock to use and keep the boat.

- more than a fully stocked kitchen which keeps anything you could ever want or need to cook and serve meals.

- tons of things to do right on the property - boardgames, table games (ping pong, air hockey, etc), outdoor games (horseshoe), paddle boating.

- very close proximity to all amenities - 30 seconds away from a fully stocked grocery store, and minutes from downtown Kenora.

- my personal favourite part: more fridge and freezer space than my own house, including a drink fridge dedicated to making my beverages extra cold.

I could go on and on....

We've stayed at a number of vacation rentals in numerous places throughout North America. This is by far our favourite rental to visit. John (the owner) is so easy to work with, welcoming, and helpful. Check-in and out is a breeze. The property is clean and well taken care of.

Every year we have visited we note that the rental has everything we could ever need. This year we did not even leave the property during our stay - and couldn't have been happier!

If you're looking to spend a week in cottage paradise, don't think twice - this place is perfect.

Lake Of The Woods Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We've had the pleasure of renting this beautiful lakefront cabin 2 years in a row, and are booked again for next year. This cottage has too many fantastic features to mention including the amazing quiet bay its situated in and breathtaking lakefront views. It's close to all amenities and not to mention majestic hiking trails. It is the highlight of our summer every year!

This property has a gorgeous lake view! Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage because it was on Lake of the Woods and it could accommodate a large family. I was not disappointed. There were 12 of us and there was lots of space for eating, playing games and hanging out. The kitchen was well equipped and again had the extra space for a pantry which had a chest freezer and an extra fridge. We enjoyed the yard space, sandy beach, paddle boat and canoe. The swimming area was ok, but was a little too weedy for the liking of my grandkids. However, there is a great little beach just a couple of minutes down the road which we really enjoyed.

My contacts with John were great. He is very personable and friendly and quIck to respond to any emails and texts. He met me when I arrived and showed me around the property which I really appreciated.

Overall, we had a wonderful time here. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Hi Carla, thanks for the review and great to hear you and your family loved it and had a wonderful time! Thanks also for the heads up regarding some weeds. I typically try to make a habit once a year to remove any weeds between the beach and the end of the dock. My apologies as I didn't do that this past summer. In reading your review, it sounds like there's some needing to be removed. Thanks for letting me know so that I can ensure they're gone for next summer! Thanks again and best wishes! John
