About the Property

Side by side boathouses on a large quiet bay on north Lake Joseph sleeps 6-8

Just 2 hours north of Toronto on the north end of beautiful Lake Joseph on a large lakefront lot in a beautiful quiet bay. Rent the 2 bedroom 1 bathroom boathouse (sleeps 4 adults) or add the smaller 1 bedroom 1 bathroom BH (sleeps 2 more). There is also a twin bunk bed in one bedroom suitable for children only as the beds are very small. Taken together, both boathouses sleep up to 6 adults and/or 2 children. The large boathouse has full kitchen/ dining/living room, HD satellite TV with PVR and DVD. The large second floor deck has a dining/lounging area with BBQ and stunning east, north and west views. The large lake level dock provides generous areas for sunning/lounging and swimming with lounge chairs, couch, table and chairs. Shallow and deep water is ideal for swimming and you can swim out to a floating raft or a separate swim dock with a diving tower. There is an indoor boat slip which can accommodate a boat up to 26 feet long. The small boathouse has a second floor bedroom with an ensuite 3 piece bathroom. The lake is all around you providing for full sun exposure from sun up to sun down. We provide access to two one man kayaks and a stand up paddleboard.


You can rent a speedboat from nearby Gordon Bay marina. We are just off Hwy 69 10 minutes north of the turnoff for Hwy 169 and MacTier and 20 minutes south of Parry Sound. This is a great spot for walking, hiking, running and cycling with quiet, scenic roads. If you are a golfer and have a ClubLink membership, Rocky Crest resort and golf course is a five minute boat ride or a 10 minute drive away. There are many other public golf courses nearby.

A little piece of paradise just 2 hours north of Toronto on a large lake level property on the calm and beautiful north end of Lake Joseph. Property consists of a 2 bedroom 1 bath boathouse (sleeps 6) with full kitchen, dining and living room with walkout to large second floor deck with second dining/lounging area and a large lake level deck area. Both decks enjoy sun all day. The lake is under and all around you. You have the option to rent a second one bedroom one bath boathouse (sleeps 2) on the same bay a short walk through the woods away, both overlooking a quiet bay off Hamer Bay. There is a floating swim platform and a separate swim dock with a jumping tower. Relax and swim, canoe, kayak or paddle board in the bay or out in the open water. Power boat rentals available from Gordon Bay Marina, a 5 minute drive and a 5-10 minute boat ride away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We are a Toronto family enjoying our 20th summer at the Lake. We have many wonderful summer memories at the Lake with our two boys, now 21 & 23 and many family and friends. It's a great place to relax and spend time with family and friends. We also own a main cottage on the same property (which is @ 35 acres and over 2,000 feet of lakefront) which is being renovated/added to in the spring/summer of 2014, which we also rent when we are not using it. It is a four bedroom, 2 1/2 bath cottage around the point from the boathouses.

Why the Owner Chose Parry Sound, ON, Canada:
This property has a fabulous location, and is relatively flat so access to the lake is easy (no steps to negotiate - walk out the door and into the lake!) The north end of Lake Joseph is far less crowded than the south end of the big lakes as lots are much larger and density is much lower. A beautiful heron visits our bay regularly. A huge owl and deer have been seen on our property recently. A mink scurries around and a wood duck and her babies arrive every spring.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Water, woods and natural beauty all around you amid all the amenities of home.
