There is great local fishing within the bay and 2 kayaks to use for exploring.

About Maureen & Max Huber

We retired from busy city life a few years ago, and moved into a rural setting outside of Barrie, Ont. Closer to our cottage, and a slower pace of life. That's better.

Enjoying leisure and sporting activities more now.

Maureen & Max Huber purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Maureen & Max Huber chose The Archipelago

We both love the pristine, natural environment up here in the Massassauga Park. It's rugged beauty captures your heart....... a little piece of heaven you might say. Really, the best Georgian Bay has to offer.

What can I say? The cottage, the island, the amenities - it's all perfect! It was a spectacular vacation and perfect for my pooch too! Having Max taxi us to and from the island was an exceptional experience. Maureen and Max were very accommodating and are great people! Can't wait to go back!

Perfect Georgian Bay Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly appreciated the location, size, amenities and charm of East Island. Maureen and Max keep an immaculate cottage and island, with many little corners of the island to enjoy. The dockage was fabulous for our 39 ft boat and dinghy. We also enjoyed the kayaks, hot tub and cottage provisions. One never tires of the views, changing breezes and birds that visit the island and waters. We hope to return in 2017. Thank you for a wonderful escape!

Had an amazing, relaxing week at East Island with my wife and two children. Maureen and Max were excellent hosts, very responsive and welcoming. It's hard to describe just how picturesque this place is. Big views to the southwest, always changing and full of everything the Bay has to offer. The accommodations were perfect; clean, comfortable and still very much a cottage. Outside, there's a plethora of places to relax and eat meals, for every wind condition, and every time of day or night. The small beach at the lee of the island is perfect for young swimmers.

I would have no trouble at all recommending this rental.

*Truly Incredible *

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to find words to describe our stay on the Island. It was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had, wonderful, incredible, magical..

My fiance and I stayed on the island for 4 nights. We are from Manhattan, so we were looking for a vacation that felt peaceful and far away from "reality". We both were ready and prepared for the island experience to be a bit "campy" given that it is an island, in a remote area.. However it couldnt have been farther from this. It felt like a 5 star experience with luxury accommodations but still maintaining its cottage integrity. The attention to detail that the owners Maureen and Max have for the cottage is remarkable. Not only was the cottage and grounds so well maintained, all the other small added details made our stay even better. Things such as the option of heat or air conditioning in the bedroom, nice bedding/sheets with a down comforter, room darkening shades if desired, fully supplied kitchen with everything in working condition, nice hand soaps, fresh fluffy bath towels, strategically placed fly swatters around the grounds if needed, accessible water hoses near the kayak/beach area, perfectly clean spotless outdoor Weber grill, clean and pre-set temperature hot tub, swimming noodles, two amazing huge docks with a swimming ladder, I mean EVERY single detail you could think that you would want seemed like it was right there sitting next to you when you needed it.

As for the Island its self, there really is nothing like it. You can watch the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset all in one day on this island. Where else can you experience all of this?? Each hour on the island was different and we moved all around the island according to the time of day. We would watch the sunrise on one side with coffee, and the sunset on the other side with a glass of wine. I swam and read on the dock most of the day while my fiance fished and kept himself busy. The water is so clean its almost strange, I have never seen such clean fresh clear water, it makes for amazing swimming. There are loons that appear all through out the day that come say "hello", they sing and flap around, they are beautiful and majestic. At night you can see every star in the sky, and hear owls hooting in the distance. We even got to see a very friendly large bull-frog and a cute little mink running around.

All in all, I can report that this is TRULY SPECIAL and MAGICAL place <3
