About This Cottage

The Magnetawan River runs throughout the Burks Falls/Magnetawan district, at times charging rapidly through rocky areas, at other times meandering almost imperceptibly through flat areas. One of these lazy river areas is just where you will find Bankside.

Bankside combines traditional and modern, with the original cottage providing classic cottage ambience and a modern addition offering more spacious sleeping accommodations, a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. As a welcome bonus, your group will love the games room on the upper level, complete with pool table and air hockey. Although you enjoy a wilderness feel here, Internet and satellite TV keep you in touch with the rest of the world.

The cottage sits very close to the river bank and has no close neighbours, so when you are relaxing on the deck or dock, you will enjoy wonderful views up and down the river. The outside of the cottage is very private and peaceful, with a deck right at the waterfront. Trees line much of the opposite shore, and a fire pit is the perfect spot to finish your day with a few songs and some toasted marshmallows.

The area offers a rugged landscape and interesting things to see and do. The towns of Burk's Falls and Magnetawan offer the necessities as well as quaint shops and café's. Visit the nearby scuplture park or drive a little further afield and take in the towns of Parry Sound or Huntsville.

This property was amazing. We really enjoyed waking up every morning and being able to go sit on the dock and fish. We loved the fact that they had a pool table and an air hockey table for rainy days. Even though it didn't rain we still played a few rounds. My 8 year old son did not want to leave on Saturday we when had to check out he was having too much fun. My husband and son enjoyed using the kayaks. It was nice that you weren't too far from town yet not too close to others as well. The place was very clean, lots of room to read,watch dvd's play games. It was so nice to see the little cards and notes left letting you know how much the owners care for this property. The whole cottage is stocked with everything I couldn't believe how well stocked it was. Very nice, peaceful and quiet all the things we look for when going on summer holidays. 1 week just didn't seem like it was long enough. I will for sure be wanting to book this place again. Thank you again for letting us stay at this wonderful cottage.

Everything you could want is there, the kitchen is so well stocked with all the equipment you could need for any meal. We visited this cottage last year and loved kayaking on the river, there were four kayaks for us to use and we could not wait to return. This year we got there and they had 6, everyone could go out at the same time, the fall leaves where on full display. So beautiful, so peaceful, now all i do is wonder why i didn't book a week off work! Next year for sure.

The start of my stay was tense, i could not get the key to open any of the doors. one phone call, answered right away and i gained entrance! Once inside the holiday began and everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing such a lovely place! The kitchen had everything you could want, plenty of dishes and most important a coffee maker! The music in every room was enjoyable, wish i could get the moose at home. Lots of extra blankets and pillows, seating everywhere did not feel crowded. It is much larger than i had hoped plenty of room for my family of 5. Hope to stay again!
