(Pls see Vrbo 663712 for cabin availability)
The Main House, is for families only. This is my personal home and there are a few spaces that are locked from guest use.
The main house overlooks Middle Lake, with a large open front porch and relaxing back deck. There is 1 1/2 bath, 2 bedrooms, living room, sitting room with a pullout couch and a comfortable kitchen dining area. The home can sleep 6 people.
The dock is shared with cabin 633712. Due to fluctuating levels of the Winnipeg River system, at times the ramp to the floating dock can be steep. This can be difficult for people with mobility issues.
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)
