Cottage Life or Explore

At the Cottage:

Our Cottage on Gunter Lake is tucked away from it all so you can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and just relax and enjoy cottage country! We do have some of the comforts of home though including Satelite TV and Wifi. Cell phone reception is also great. Other things to do include:

  • Swimming from the sandy beach
  • Watersports including paddleboarding, kayaking & inflatables for floating the day away.
  • Fishing - bring your own boat - or go out in our canoe or aluminum fishing boat. You can even portage into Cashel Lake.
  • Roast Marshmallows & tell ghost stories around the firepit. Firewood is included!
  • Family game night - play nintendo wii, Xbox or a boardgame in the family/games room or darts in the screened in porch.
  • Stargaze - night time in cottage country allows you to see the sky & stars the way nature intended.
