About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bedroom 3, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

(Pls se Vrbo 633712 for cabin availability)
The Main House, is for families only. It overlooks Middle Lake, with a large open front porch and relaxing back deck. There is 1 1/2 bath, 3 bedrooms, living room, sitting room and a comfortable kitchen dining area. The home can sleep 6 people.

The dock is shared with cabin 633712.

The most important thing about this home is that with the right guests, this is a Green experience, with no carbon footprint. Although there is no shortage of electricity, it does need to be carefully used.

Staying at West Cott, allows guests to enjoy the lake and experience wilderness, while also exploring their energy use and how they impact the planet we live on.

The house is not connected to any electrical supply company. It is a solar powered home, that can sufficiently provide electricity for the energy aware family. There are two diesel generators that provide backup, but ideally should rarely come on. How much they come on is determined by the guests energy consciousness.

West Cott is on a quiet lake with good fishing and full access to the Winnipeg River. Whether it's a leisurely trip by water to Minaki, or kayaking through wild rice filled bays, adventure awaits. Wildlife can be seen from the dining table and eagles travel to and from their nests, feeding and training their young.

Guiding services, fishing and shore lunches are available on both the Winnipeg River and Lake of the Woods. (Advance bookings required)

- There is no loud music or parties allowed at anytime. Quiet time is enforced after 10:00pm

- Any evidence of smoking indoors will result in a minimum cleaning charge of $200.00.

- There are absolutely no pets allowed. Any evidence of pets will result in a minimum cleaning charge of $200.00

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I purchased the property in 1994 and built the house myself. Over the years I have raised my children on this lake, trained and ran a dogsled team and cut winter trails. This is the place where dreams come true.

Why the Owner Chose Kenora, Unorganized, ON, Canada:
I bought this property because of the isolation, yet proximity to town. I like the privacy and solitude.
