The Pintwala Cottage on Isabel Island near Parry Sound has an old fashion feel good charm about it with modern amenities. A lovely breeze comes down the channel on hot days to cool you off. We offer comfortable eating areas inside the cottage, in our screened in porch as well as on the upper deck, which also has a large umbrella to keep the sun off while enjoying lunch.
The bedrooms are in one area of the cottage closed off by a door if you wish to keep that area private and quiet. The kitchen, dining room and living room are open concept, looking at large windows overlooking trees and the water.
The bunkie has a large open deck as well as a screened in porch with seating and a table. There is a room with a composting toilet in the Bunkie for convenience at night rather than walking out back to the Outhouse, which is in good condition. For other conveniences, there is a private outdoor shower provided. Our intent was to discourage washing in the lake for environmental reasons.
A 5 minute boat ride from the closest marina (Glenn Burney Marina), 10 minute boat ride to the Parry Sound Town Docks.
Children can play in front of the Main Cottage or in between the cottage and the Bunkie.

The cottage is wood sided. Interior is sided with cedar and pine in some rooms. We have a wood stove if temperatures ever get down to an uncomfortable level which is very rare in the summer months.
