This cozy 2 bedroom A-frame cottage sits perched on the banks of Blackstone Lake. Beautiful views are seen from its tree-top decks overlooking the lake. The cottage is water access - just a quick 7 minute boat ride from the mainland - the cottage owners will provide a 12 ft. aluminum boat with a 15 hp. motor for the renters to access the property. With an abundance of surrounding crown land, low lake population and little boat traffic, this is the perfect spot for a small family or couple getaway!
The main level is neatly laid out with a bright open concept kitchen/living/dining area, all facing out to the deck and lake with warm pine walls and ceilings and casual, comfortable furnishings. Two spacious bedrooms are on the upper level with the master bedroom facing the lake with a walk-out deck and the second bedroom faces the shaded wood side (large red pines) with a Juliet balcony. Open both bedroom doors and both sliding patio doors and enjoy a refreshing cross-breeze for a great night’s sleep.
There is plenty to enjoy in this true wilderness setting. Explore the walking paths behind the cottage or head down to the natural tree-lined waterfront entry with a mix of sand, rock and pine needles or shallow dive off the end of the dock where the water is very clear and 5-6 feet deep, ideal for swimming.
Blackstone Lake is situated on the famous fish producing Cat River system. Waterfalls feed the lake from the west and exit to the east into Lake St. Joseph. Over 3 miles long, 2 miles wide and dotted with many islands and bays, Blackstone is one of the finest fishing lakes in Ontario featuring walleye, trout, bass and northern pike. Avid canoers can also enjoy the beauty and serenity of the lake and even travel through a connecting shallow river into Crane Lake.
After a long day of sun and adventure, end your evenings on the generous sized lakeside deck and dock, listen to the haunting call of the loons and be dazzled by the stunning sunsets.
