The SpaceA wonderfully comfortable bungalow, 1100 sq feet, fully modern. The bathroom reno was completed in early May 2015. Note: Shower only, no bathtub.
Has 4 beds (3 bedrooms) - see photo as 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed. The benches in the screen porch can be turned into picnic tables if you want to eat outside. There is also a patio set on the deck.
Propane BBQ, satellite tv, washer/dryer, fire pit for your use. Sheets, towels for in-cottage use only, kitchen linens are supplied. Cookware, utensils & dishes are also supplied. There is no landline as cell service is very good with most carriers - except Rogers.
Just bring your food, personal items, clothing & beach towels.
There are chairs at the back of the cabin that are used for sitting around the fire pit.
There is a private dock on the lake available for your use as well. Please note that this is not a lake front cabin. Photo shows our private dock on the lake - not the view from the front of our cottage.
We are located about 20 minutes north of the Emma Lake turnoff on the road to Waskesiu. (It takes 2 hrs 10 mins from Saskatoon.) 1 km to Elk Ridge (for golfing, restaurants, spa) and 5 kms to Waskesiu. There is a store at the corner of Hwy 2 where you turn off the highway (LT’s) for gas, drinking water jugs, food essentials, etc. I have heard that LT's has very good noodle bowls. One drinking water jug will be supplied for you. We usually go in to Waskesiu if we need anything or just to visit the beautiful beach. There is a fabulous bakery at the Trading Post in Waskesiu, a movie theatre and numerous restaurants & shops. Pete's Terrace has excellent pizza.
McPhee is a small lake with many of the cottages/houses occupied year round. – including a couple of our neighbours. It is usually very quiet. The walkway to the beach is about half a block from us to the right and the walkway to the dock is half a block to the left.
Renters are responsible for any damage!
No Smoking Please!
This is our cottage (not a rental business) & we ask that renters respect our family's property and leave it as clean & in the same condition as they find it. (We do not charge a cleaning fee, however, should you wish to NOT clean before you leave, there will be a $150 charge. Please arrange this in advance. If, upon inspection, the cabin is not clean, $150 will be deducted from your security deposit.)
Please respect our neighbours!
There is an additional charge of $10 per person per night after the first 4 guests (maximum 6 people total).
Long weekend rates differ - please inquire.
Pets MAY be allowed - please inquire. $150 Non-refundable pet fee applicable.
The 1000 gallon cistern will be full and the 1000 gallon septic tank will be empty. IF you use all of the water & require a pump-out or water delivery during your stay, there will be a $65 charge per pump-out and $180 per water delivery. This should NOT be necessary if minor water conservation techniques are used.
Please note our strict cancellation policy as this will be adhered to. There is a very short rental season and while every effort will be made to rent after a cancellation, it may not be possible as most people make their summer plans well in advance.
Please be honest - if you book for a certain # of people, we expect only that # to stay. IF more people stay than booked, you will forfeit your deposit & be asked to leave immediately without any refund.
We do try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible so please do not take advantage. Unfortunately these rules have come about due to past unpleasant experiences with renters. We respect other people's property and hope everyone will respect ours.
We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have so please ask! Guest AccessGuests have access to the cabin, fire pit & dock. The garage & shed on site is private & therefore not accessible to guests. Interaction with GuestsWe usually like to meet our guests at the cabin when turning over the keys. If not possible, other arrangements will be made.
