About the property

Natural Privacy (7 Acres) Yet 5 Minutes From Closest Town.

Please ensure your currency is set properly before booking online. Some people in Canada are quoted by default in US$. This is a problem with the HomeAway/VRBO websites. You'll know this is happening to you if the damage deposit does not equal $300 CAD$.

A secluded 4 bedroom cottage with over 300 feet of lakefront. Located on the South West of Lake Kagawong.

We currently have 2 cottages, sharing about 57 acres of

property and 900+ feet of shoreline. You can book both cottages if you have a large group but you'll need to reserve well in advance. The other cottage is over 300 feet away and we left a buffer of trees and brush in between the cottages to act as a privacy buffer.

There are horse shoe pits, a sand box and about a quarter acre of

lawn at the cottage. There is a dock, with a buoy offshore for tying up a boat

(the cottage comes with a canoe for getting out to the buoy and back). Lots of people, of all ages, have enjoyed swimming out front of the cottage over the years.

About The Owner

We love to travel and own 4 vacation rentals.

Laurie is a visual merchandiser (she makes stores look great)

Larry is a computer guy

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Central Manitoulin

Property is great for seeing Ontario wildlife. You will often see deer, woodpeckers, grouse, rabbits.

Property has a great combination of lakefront, cedar forest and open space.

What makes this cottage unique

Nearest neighbour is about 300 feet away through a buffer of trees. When you look out the window you won't have a neighbour staring back at you.

Great dock, good for swimming.

My friends and I stayed over the Victoria Day weekend. Everything was in place. We didn't mind the long drive because the place was worth it. The cottage has everything we needed for the stay. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful lake view, the kids enjoyed canoeing on the lake, enjoyed setting up the campfire and toasted the food. Before the trip, it forecasted raining and thunderstorm, but luckily most of the time we had very nice weather, the house is also comfortable to stay, a lot of thing for kids to play.

Owner Canceled booking before Long Weekend

  • 1 of 5

I have booked the property in advance for the September long weekend and the owner canceled my booking on the Thursday before my trip.

After sending my booking request, I have received a call explaining some conditions of the cottage and got answer to all my questions followed by a booking confirmation. I have called them again regarding some other concerns and they confirmed once again that I have the place booked and all is good. I even received the email for the entrance code. Until Thursday morning when I received a call telling me my booking was canceled because of SOME ERROR IN THE SYSTEM! after so many correspondences I do not understand how this is possible for them not to double check the schedule just to make sure!

Owner's Response: I can understand the frustration. This booking came in on August 26th. Our internal reservation system showed the cottage as available so we did agree to rent it out and proceeded to book it. We realized on September 3rd that we had booked the same days to someone else two months earlier on a different site. That site wasn't updating our internal reservation calendar. Once the problem was spotted we fixed the technical problem so that it won't happen again. We contacted this person immediately, explained the situation, and refunded their money. We then provided details on roughly 10 other properties that still had availability and met all of their rental requirements that we knew of. We also extended an offer for them to come at a later date for no charge. We can understand why they are upset. It is one of those unfortunate situations you never want to be in. This is the first time this has happened in the 10 years since we've been renting this property. We continued to rent the cottage to the person who had booked it two months earlier. We notified this person as soon as we realized the problem and helped out as much as we could for them to find another property. Our apologies again for what happened. We have improved things so that this won't happen to other guests.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $269.19
Pet Fee $46.15 + Tax

Flat rate for the first 6 guests. We do charge extra per guest starting at the 7th person, regardless of age. HomeAway doesn't have ability to automatically calculate this additional pricing or an extra cost for pets so these extra costs will be added manually.

Pets may be accepted at a cost of $60 +tax/week or less

20% additional charge for long weekends outside of high season (e.g., Victoria Day Weekend is charged extra).

Prices subject to change without notice prior to booking (pricing is locked in once you book). Our personal website rate page is the official rate page and contains all rate details.

Of course we hope you don’t have to change your vacation plans. However, please take note of the following in case changes are unavoidable.

Once booked there are no refunds, you are locked in to paying the unbilled funds as well on the appropriate date. Why no refunds? Once you reserve we block off these dates for you and no one else is able to book.

We HIGHLY recommend that you purchase some type of vacation insurance, which includes accommodation costs. Then if you must cancel your trip the insurance may (usually for major medical problems, and other critical situations) cover the cancellation costs.

Note: We typically respond to rental requests within 1 hour, except Sundays which may take a bit longer. If you don't receive a response from us fairly quickly please check your Junk Mail folder.
