Property Description

If Island View House is not available on your preferred dates and you are a group of 6 or fewer, please check out our newly acquired cottage, Loon Lookout.

Island View House is an architect designed lake-front home on Lake Cecebe that is loaded with amenities. The house faces south east providing a long view down the lake between Gordon and Watson Islands. Pine doors and accents throughout the house add to the lake charm. The large deck of Island View House is a great place to sunbathe, relax, eat outside, or BBQ. Island View House can comfortably accommodate up to seven (7) guests. (An eighth guest can be accommodated with permission of the owners and an extra charge.)

Island View House has six skylights, ample windows and the open living room/dining room/kitchen design give the home a light open feeling as well as privacy. An attached pine paneled porch has both screens and vinyl panel windows to provide an added view of the lake and another dining area, or place to play games in the evening.

Forty miles of navigable waterways stretch from Island View House dock, making it a great base for boating and fishing. Lake Cecebe which contains Walleye, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch and Small Mouth Bass.

A Jacuzzi tub in the upstairs bathroom provides extra relaxation, and the main floor master bath has a walk-in shower.

Location Description

The path to the shore has a gentle slope and there are wooden Muskoka chairs for use on the private dock.

Many evenings loons treat guests to a chorus of calls, sometimes fish can be seen jumping in the lake, and most nights the sunsets and stars are beautiful from the dock.

Forty miles of navigable waterways stretch from the Island View House dock, making it a great base for boating and fishing. There are always fishermen on Lake Cecebe which contains Walleye, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch and Small Mouth Bass.

There are nearby golf courses, good shopping of all sorts in Huntsville, a larger grocery store and gift shops in Burk's Falls, and Canada Post offices in both Magnetawan and Burk's Falls.

Both the deck and dock are ideal for sun bathing, watching the world go by, a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine or beer. There is a private double dock, 28' by 8' and 20' by 10', that is stable and has a ladder that allows easy access to the lake for swimming.
