Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: resource entrepreneur(david) and nurse(myrna)

Why the Owner Chose Algonquin Highlands, ON, Canada:
Has been used for friends and family since inception. Now a rental property as we built a 6000 sq ft home on mainland 5 minutes by boat nearby. It is the only island on this lake that has accommodation. We live here 70% of the time. It is a lifelong dream to be able to have home close to all the wonderful surroundings of both Muskoka as well as Algonquin Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails nearby, beautiful beaches, excellent fishing and water sports. Our island has two swimming areas. One is right adjacent to the cabin and the other is for deep diving off a second dock on the east shore of our island. There are two paddle boats, a canoe, and a 14 foot aluminum boat with 6 HP motor. All this equipment is included. Wifi hotspot internet is available, plus Bell express vue satellite TV service.
