A secluded 4 bedroom cottage with over 300 feet of lakefront.
300' shoreline, Sat TV, Dishwasher, Canoe,
This cottage has privacy. We currently have 2 cottages, sharing about 57 acres of property and 900+ feet of shoreline. The second, White Pine Vista Cottage, is over 300 feet away and we left a buffer of trees and brush in between the cottages to act as a privacy buffer.
The cottage is located 66ft from the high water mark (as close as legally allowed for the area). There are horse shoe pits, a sand box and about a quarter acre of lawn at the cottage. There is a dock, with a buoy offshore for tying up a boat (the cottage comes with a canoe for getting out to the buoy and back). Lots of people, of all ages, have enjoyed swimming out front of the cottage over the years.
The cottage works well for multiple families or large families and this cottage can be booked with the one we have next door (about a 400 feet to the East, the closest neighbouring cottage to the east).

There is a video on our personal site of the shoreline.
THe cottage is a fantastic place to spend time in every season. Summer is what you would expect from a typical Ontario cottage. Generally nice weather and the lake is a great place to hang out.
Fall/Autumn you will experience the fall colours. This usually happens around the last week of September to early October. The bird migration and Salmon spawning are great nature activities to witness.
Winter, you can cross country ski, snowmobile, ice fish. I'm always amazed at all of the animal tracks that show up shortly after a fresh snowfall.
Spring brings the bird migration back. Great to witness in early spring around mid-April as the edges of the lake thaw as that is where large populations of water fowl hang out during the migration. Rainbow trout spawn in the spring and that is a spectacle to see them jumping up streams.

Pets: Please ask. White Pine Vista – pets are allowed in the main family room area, kitchen, hallway, laundry area and possibly the master bedroom. We would ask that pets still not go in any room that has carpeting. If you are allergic to certain animals and are concerned about allergies we may no longer have a cottage for you. We will continue to buy non-allergenic materials for bedding, and building materials when we can. We charge $60.00 extra/pet/week or less. This is due to the fact that there is more likely to be scratches, wear and tear and higher cleaning fees with pets. We also ask that the pets stay off of the furniture/beds. We also reserve the right to charge for any damage done by a pet.
Of course we hope you don’t have to change your vacation plans. However, please take note of the following in case changes are unavoidable.
Once booked there are no refunds. Once you reserve we block off these dates for you and no one else is able to book.
We HIGHLY recommend that you purchase some type of vacation insurance, which includes accommodation costs. Then if you must cancel your trip the insurance may (usually for major medical problems, and other critical situations) cover the cancellation costs. MyTripInsurance is an example of a possible trip insurance plan; however, you would need to verify with the insurance company if this type of plan would meet your needs
