On picturesque and quiet Crane Lake, this great 3 bedroom cottage provides all that is needed for the ideal family vacation. The cottage is bright, clean and comfortable, with an open concept kitchen, dining and living area all facing out to the lake. The open concept living area with its beautiful vaulted ceiling and large windows offers a fantastic view from inside with a walk out to the same peaceful view from the expansive deck that runs the length of the cottage. Whether dining inside or out on the deck, you will know that you have definitely left the city life far behind! The basement has a lower level entrance which has a bathroom including shower therefore there is no need to wet the living areas when coming in from the lake. There are two bedrooms on the main level. One has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The third bedroom is on the lower level and has a queen bed as well with ample storage.
The cottage is slightly elevated with a gradual slope down to the dock. Very quiet, on one side no neighbours occupy. There is something for everyone - 5 feet deep water off the large dock for diving into as well as a shallow entry area with a sandy bottom. With a south-west exposure you will enjoy countless hours of basking in the sunshine as the sun is on the dock from noon until sunset. Plenty of shaded sitting as well. Enjoy the lower level deck situated by the water. If you feel like relaxing outside enjoy the screened in porch with cushioned wicker seating.
If you tire from relaxing, venture into several nearby lakes that can be reached by canoe or short portage. Crane Lake also connects to larger Blackstone Lake for more boating opportunities. With Bass, Pike, Muskie and Walleye in abundance, the fishing rarely lets anyone down. For the more adventurous, check out the Rock Bluffs that local cottagers like to jump from.
Settle in and enjoy an evening beverage while reminiscing about your day of fun in the sun. End your days huddled around the fire pit, located between the deck and the dock, story-telling and roasting marshmallows.
If you manage to pull yourself away from the delights of the cottage, take a day trip to the nearby town of Parry Sound, home of the Georgian Bay Bioshere Reserve, one of only 13 UNESCO sites in Canada. The eastern coast of Georgian Bay, where Parry Sound is located, is also known as the "30,000 islands" and considered the world's largest freshwater archipelago.
There is a government dock and launch as well for your use if you have your own power boat.
