This cozy little cottage on Perry Lake is perfect for a family getaway. Perry Lake is known for excellent fishing with pike, large and smallmouth bass. For the explorer, travel by boat throughout the lakes adjoining Perry Lake – Hassard Lake, Beaver Lake and Little Beaver Lake.
The cottage itself boasts a bright and fresh kitchen with everything needed to prepare meals for the barbeque, including new appliances. There is also a kettle, blender, toaster and spare coffee maker provided. The water is not potable, so bring drinking water, or fill up some containers at the water spring down the road, which is renowned for clear, safe drinking water.

The living room has lovely white wicker seating for up to four people, a good spot to curl up and talk about the adventures of the day.
