Here’s where you will set up the lounge chairs and take frequent refreshing dips. There is a safe, sheltered, shallow swimming area for the small children and deeper water for the experienced swimmers. The use of the pontoon boat at the dock is NOT included in the rental. You are welcome to bring your own canoes, kayaks or power boat for use on the lake, or the nearby marina in Baysville offers a selection of rentals for your stay. Be advised you require Ontario’s Boat Smart License to operate a power boat.

There is a ten foot wide deck extending most of the length of the house facing the lake. There are two propane BBQ's and a third charcoal burning BBQ for the traditionalists. Also you can enjoy an outdoor fire in the evening either on the back deck using the propane fire bowl; or you can move to the lakeside flag stone patio and use the wood-burning fire bowl. What a great spot for toasting marshmallows, watching the sunset and spotting shooting stars.
