Privacy here is a given! This large historic Main cottage, Boathouse cottage, Guest cottage and Bunkie are filled with wonderful antiques and is nestled among 150 year old pine trees on their very own private 5 acre island. In addition, the incredible 'Boat House Cottage' sits right at the water's edge with a large deck looking out over a beautiful quiet bay. The interior is a virtual antique showcase and has a oak spiral staircase leading to the sleeping loft. The beautiful secluded sand beach has water entry that is shallow and safe for the young ones, and there is deep water off the dock for diving. Sitting on the deck gives you an incredible view out over a large quiet bay, and you can listen to the loons as you have a perfect view of the sunset. The island has mixed terrain, perfect for hiking and exploring, and you can't get lost - the hiking paths are covered with a thick layer of pine needles!
The cottages have great character with wood floors throughout. The large living room is a wonderful gathering place for everyone to tell stories and share the day's experiences around the stone fireplace. Wahwashkesh Lake is a very large, pristine and un-populated lake, providing great fishing (pickerel, small-mouth bass, northern pike, lake trout). This is ideal for the true 'get away and relax' holiday where you can spend real time with the family, playing, reading, enjoying the sunset while sitting by the bonfire on the beach.....the exposure is south and west and the sunsets speak for themselves. There is a new golf course on the lake only a five minute boat ride from the island. Flight tours can also be arranged nearby.
This is truly a paradise island that exudes a rich sense of history and serenity!
Getting to the island is easy as there is a private parking area on the mainland directly across from the island. You can park, walk down to the 20' pontoon boat (with a 9.9hp motor that is supplied for your use) and take the one minute cruise across to the island. The pontoon boat is also set up for fishing with a depth finder and electric trolling motor.
