There is also a buoy for tying up larger or a 2nd boat. The cottage also comes with a canoe. Many people, very young to elderly, have enjoyed swimming off the dock. COTTAGE LAYOUT (there is walk through video of the cottage on our personal website just do an Internet search for discovervr white pine vista. It should be the first listing.) There is a large dock which has been moved since the video was taken. There are now about 10 stairs between the cottage and the dock. From the front walkway, it is a half step up to get in to the main entrance hallway. Turn left to the master bedroom, or right to the kitchen. MASTER BEDROOM You have a queen size bed, large closet, drawers, reclining chairs, windows out toward the lake. MASTER BATHROOM en suite A 4 piece bath with a separate large soaking tub, separate shower, toilet, sink. We have at least one blow dryer in this cottage. KITCHEN The kitchen has a large fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and a decent amount of dishes, cutlery, etc., for a rental cottage. There is a table with 6 chairs here. At the back of the kitchen is a door to the utility room. At the front is a window. UTILITY ROOM At the back of the cottage is a full size stackable, washer, and dryer. A second 'beer fridge', laundry tub and the property well pump and water purification system. Out the left side is another room about 8' wide by 20 feet long that isn't heated. This is a storage room and can also act as a mud room. There are various kids toys, kept in here. Leaving at the far end of this room you come out at the lighted BBQ shed and near the fire pit area. FAMILY ROOM Immediately beside the kitchen (to the right of the main entrance) is the family room. It has a 42' TV, Satellite Package which includes movie, kids and sports channels. There is an XBox system. A couch, an sofa bed and coffee table. There is a book shelf with books, DVDs. There is also a phone here. There are windows to the back and front. There is a 2nd door leading out to the front of the cottage. This door is seldom used. At the back of the family room is a hall which leads to the 2nd and 3rd Bedrooms and the 2nd Bathroom. 2nd BEDROOM This is the smallest bedroom and contains a double bed, closet and night table. There is a window looking out towards the front of the cottage. 3rd BEDROOM The Master and 3rd Bedroom are both fair size rooms and work great for 2 separate couples to each have nice bedrooms and be at opposite ends of the cottage. This room has a queen size bed. A bookshelf with games/puzzles. There is a closet and a large window looking towards the west. Being winterized, the cottage is a great place all year around. Mooring buoy about 40' from dock for 30' or less size boats. Public boat launch approx. min minutes east. Fall/Autumn is great to take in the change of leaves. This event tends to happen around the last week of September to early October but changes based on when the cooler weather arrives. There are a number of nature activities at this time of year (leaves, salmon run, bird migration). In the winter take advantage of snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice fishing. We will provide a hut for ice fishing but otherwise you need to bring your own equipment for all of the various winter sporting activities. Enjoy the various animal tracks after a fresh snowfall (from mice to rabbits and deer and others there are usually a number of tracks in the snow). Spring brings the bird migration to the island. It is awesome to see the lake edges where large populations of water fowl spend time during the migration. You'll likely see a lot of birds you don't see further south. Rainbow trout swim upstream to spawn at this time. Rates displayed here are for 1 to 6 people. There will be additional charges for the 7th and 8th person. The extra charge various depending on time of year and is $77/person/week during high season and less at other times of year. More

About the neighbourhood
Located on the south side of Patterson’s Bay which is in the south west ‘corner’ of Lake Kagawong. For those who know the area it is located between Mac’s Camp and Fred's Camp. The town of Kagawong is at the exact opposite end of the lake about a 30 minute drive away. Located between Gore Bay (about 15 minutes away) and Mindemoya (about 20 minutes away). The cottage is located close to the centre of the island. Manitoulin Island is located north of Tobermory about 6 hours north of Toronto. You can take a ferry from mid May to mid-October or the bridge at the north end of the island near Espanola/Sudbury.
Getting around
The cottage is about 7 minutes away from the closest town. You'll ideally have a vehicle to get to the cottage and around. Once at the cottage you could enjoy cycling around the island with the cottage as a good central location.
