Bedroom Description

Pine Rock Cottage has one Queen bed and a full bathroom with tub/shower, and can comfortably accommodate two people. The cottage has two sky lights, a kitchen, a 16' canoe, and is on a septic system.

Pine Rock Cottage is quiet, peaceful, and ideal for relaxing, reading, writing, paddling, fishing or just 'being'. Watson Island and Pine Rock Cottage can only be reached by boat ensuring privacy and a restful stay. There is free parking at Rockwynn Landing on the mainland for your vehicle. Your hosts pick you up at Rockwynn Landing when you arrive and return you there when you leave. In between you can get to the mainland with the canoe.

Location Description

Your hosts will pick you up at Rockwynn Landing (where there is free long term parking) when you arrive and deliver you there when you depart at the end of your rental period. The short boat ride from Rockwynn Landing to Pine Rock Cottage lets you start the transition to the slower more relaxing pace of life youâ??ll enjoy on Watson Island.

Pine Rock Cottage rentals come with the loan of a canoe. â?? It's about a 20 to 25 minute paddle to get to Rockwynn Landing, a public dock where you park your vehicle, to Pine Rock Cottage.

It's about a 45 minute paddle down river the the village of Magnetawan where there are restaurants, an LCBO, general store, fruit and vegetable stand, gift shops, churches and places to buy ice cream cones.

Lake Cecebe always has people fishing. Lake Cecebe contains Walleye, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch and Small Mouth Bass. There are 40 miles of navigable waterways from the Pine Rock dock. Boats and motors can be rented on the lake, and there is a cement boat ramp at the marina for putting in boats if you are bringing one of your own.

You are welcome to walk the paths on Watson Island, and there are other nearby places for walking and hiking.

Pine Rock Cottage has a 10' x 30' private dock. It has two Muskoka Chairs and a side table, as well as a great view down the lake. The Pine Rock Cottage deck has a small table and two chairs for outdoor meals, and the porch outside the front door is great for watching the lake and relaxing. With the private bench looking westward down the lake and the Muskoka chairs on the private dock, there are three comfortable places to sit, relax, read, have a meal or snack, and/or maybe doze off in the sunshine.

Cozy and warm place with stunning views

The water is warm, perfect for morning, mid-day or evening dips. And we had an amazing time exploring the area by canoe. We didn't get a chance to leap off Echo Rock or rent a boat down at Port Carme... Read More
