Charming recreational cabin on a remote 2.2 acre island located on Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada. It is 20 miles by boat from the nearest road, but adjacent to the buoyed East Track between Kenora and Sioux Narrows, ON, which makes it relatively easy to find in the maze of surrounding islands. The rustic, but comfortable cabin has hot water, solar power, gas fridge, stove and range, cell service and satellite Internet/WiFi. It is located in prime fishing grounds in a beautiful and remote part of the photogenic lake and the landscape offers countless other opportunities for canoeing, camping, swimming, sailing, other water sports and more.
Despite a few scattered neighbors and periodic passing boats, it offers profound solitude surrounded by a vast, untamed boreal environment. It is perfect for adventurous people with a background of camping or backpacking who would enjoy a similar experience with many of the comforts of home. Renters must provide/rent their own boat and be comfortable navigating a buoyed track on the lake.
Although there is only one bedroom and a couple beds available at this time, there are beautiful tent sites scattered across the island and the cabin and kitchen are big enough to feed and serve up to ten people, with a spacious living room centered around a hearty wood stove. Over the course of summer 2017 the owners will be adding a hot shower and opening up both a second private bedroom, a spacious bunk room and scenic balcony in the adjacent two-story boathouse. This is the first time this cabin has been offered for rent and it is a work in progress. It has every element for a perfect vacation for experienced outdoor travelers but it is not the perfect place for everyone. Good communication with the owners is important before booking.+ More
