No bait and switch here! Listing was accurate in every regard. Lovely two-acre island offering seclusion and natural beauty, yet with easy access (5-10 mins) by motor boat or canoe -- both included for exclusive use of the cottage guests at the hospitality of the hosts -- not to mention a paddle boat to boot. Gorgeous sunsets; excellent swimming from both island docks -- situated on the east side and west side of the island for the enjoyment of changing sunlight throughout the day, not to mention dusks and dawns to take in. Lovely spot also for the children to hunt for lovely quartz and other geological artifacts. Well-appointed, tastefully decorated, and cosy cottage with all the necessary amenities. Delectable prepared foods and other conveniences and necessities minutes away by car in Huntsville and Dwight. Oh, and bonfires and marshmallow-roasting at sunset. Reasonably quiet and pretty lake offering excellent kayaking and canoe exploration. Absolutely perfect setting for family vacation or rustic romantic getaway!

We stayed on a beautiful island near Algonquin park. There was fishing rods and a fire pit that we spent the weekend enjoying. The canoe and pedal boats let us tour the lake. We were given lifts on a motor boat when we needed and the cottage was really cosy. We had an incredible weekend!
