NEWLY LISTED - November 2020

Welcome to “Chalet Manitouwabing”!

This fabulous 4-season, 2,500 sq. ft., 3 level, 4 bedroom cottage is nestled on 3 acres of land on the tranquil shores of Lake Manitouwabing. The owner’s family have been cottaging in McKellar on the shores of this lake for 48 years. After just a couple of years of experiencing exceptional beauty of the lake, a small group of family and friends purchased the “Jones Farm” on the eastern shore of Jones Bay. At the time and still today, Jones Bay is arguably the most ideal location on the lake due to the all-day sun, stunning sunsets, deep natural forests, abundant wildlife, near perfect water quality and of course fishing. Just 2 years after purchasing the Jones Farm, they purchased the other farm on the eastern shore of Jones Bay.

A place for all seasons, this chalet inspired architectural beauty is one of a kind.  Upon arrival you will quickly forget city life as you settle into this beautiful lake house retreat. With its European/old country charm, intricate woodwork, and sloped ceilings, it is a special place that warms the heart and nurtures the soul. 

The open concept main level will be the favourite gathering spot for the entire family to prep meals, dine and relax while looking out to spectacular lake views.

The upper level has 3 tastefully decorated bedrooms, with the beautiful lake-facing master bedroom having its own 3-piece ensuite. Across from the other 2 bedrooms is a 5-piece bathroom, one of the owner's favourite spots to retreat to after a full day of adventure to take a long hot bubble bath in the Jacuzzi tub! The lower level has a fourth bedroom and a cozy family room with a foosball table and large sectional couch, perfect for late night movie watching.

Rain or shine, start your mornings off with your coffee on the covered wrap-around deck, with a warm gentle breeze off the lake, listening to the soft symphony of birds singing, ducks quacking, loons calling, and geese honking!

The expansive lawn that gently slopes down to the 250 feet of waterfront is ideal for the kids to toss a ball or frisbee or having an old fashion picnic. In the summer, there is a sandy beach (Spring of 2021) at the shoreline with shallow entry to the lake making it great for young and old alike, while the long dock (Spring of 2021) extends out to deep water, beckoning for cool refreshing jumps into the lake.

Rent or bring your own boat and explore Lake Manitouwabing as it is one of the larger lakes in Northern Ontario, full of islands, and for avid anglers, bass, pike and pickerel are in abundance. Over the years, Lake Manitouwabing and the surrounding area have become one of the most sought after summer and winter vacation destinations in North America. The lake water quality is some of the best in Canada.

Vacationing at this cottage is truly rejuvenating no matter what you decide to do each day. However, if the need arises, Parry Sound is only 20 minutes away where you will find all shopping amenities, quaint shops, great restaurants and is the home of the 30,000 Island Queen Cruise scenic tours. For golf enthusiasts, The Ridge at Manitou golf course is one of the finest in Canada and is in the process of expanding to meet the needs of local and visiting golfers. It also offers some of the finest dining in the region. For nature lovers, one of the very few UNESCO Biosphere Reserves is nearby.

As beautiful as the summers are here, enjoy this idyllic setting all year round. The peace and solitude of ice fishing, skating on the lake and winter walks can’t be beat. You can even snowmobile directly from the cottage onto the frozen lake and onward to an abundance of Ontario (OFSC) trails. Spend cozy winter evenings indoors by the fire while watching snowflakes fall on the trees through the windows and then wake up to a “Winter Wonderland.”

What can be enjoyed anytime of the year, are the stunning sunsets bundled up around the fire pit roasting marshmallows and watching the countless stars in the clear night sky. Surrounded by the serenity of nature and lakeside living, this property offers a luxurious and truly relaxing escape. So, what are you waiting for!?
