A wonderful, beach front southern exposure log cabin neslted among majestic white pine. Watch the mist rise, listen to the loons, and have your coffee on the dock. Canoe or kayak along the historic Mattawa River (Lake Chant Plein) safely or choose something more challenging not too far away. Read a book or swim. Roast marshmallows and watch the stars sparkle almost within your reach. Hike to town for a great meal at The Moon or Voyageur Inn; or BBQ in the outdoor summer kitchen. It's up to you. Wifi, Netflix and lots of board games.

Great for a romantic couple, a family of 4-6 or a group of friends - sleeps 6 adults and 2 children in 3 bedrooms (1 bedroom is a sleep cabin). The main cottage has a great room with a wall of windows overlooking the Lake ChantPlein which is part of the Mattawa River Heritage Waterway.

“Birthday weekend getaway”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2018

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your family cottage. It was a perfect weekend. Only a little bit of rain. Other than that it was perfect. Hoping to stay there again! Couldn't ask for anything better!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review. You are most welcome. We'd love to have you again. Thank you for leaving the cottage so neat! That's appreciated. Tina and family

We rented this as a birthday weekend getaway, as our birthdays are a day apart. Wanted to getaway from everything and relax. Received that and more. Tranquil, relaxing, beautiful scenery, all of the basic necessities are there! Extremely clean and well kept. Definitely worth looking into for time away!

Owner's reply: Thank YOU for the nice review. We are delighted that the beautiful log cottage welcomed you so sweetly. Hope to see you both again one day....and Happy Birthdays. Tina and family

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We've loved this log cottage for years and when the owners decided to sell their much loved summer home, we were blessed to buy it for our children. It's still a few years away before they will use it, so we are renting it out to help pay the mortgage. We spent Christmas there one year, what a treat! A wonderful family occasion with a roaring fire, board games, laughs and hot chocolate!
