About This Cottage

Be it a Family Reunion, Birthday Party, Thanksgiving Celebration, White Christmas, New Year's Getaway, Anniversary Trip, Snowmobile Adventure, Indian Summer Stay, and of course a Summer Vacation The Magnetawan Cottage is the ideal setting. It is for rent to families and groups of up to 11 people year-around.

This renovated historic farm house is close to everything you need and is a pleasant surprise at any time of year. The Magnetawan Cottage is situated conveniently close to major Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) trails. Golfing and shopping are a 15 minute drive away.

The cottage is bright and airy, with ample space for larger families. With four bedrooms on the upper level and another one on the lower level, up to 11 are accommodated in comfort. A fully-equipped, large kitchen and separate dining room will please everyone who makes meals a special part of vacation time. A generous size living room has two gathering areas - one with an electric fireplace, TV and a magnificent view of the property - the other a more intimate space perfect for a game, a cup of coffee or enjoying a great book.

Outside the cottage, trails lead through the neighbouring forests, through meadows and along the lake. Picturesque resting places along the trails give the opportunity to breathe in the peace and simplicity of nature. Wildlife such as beavers, raccoons, deer, chipmunks, turtles, foxes, groundhogs, and the occasional moose are all part of nature as well as the peaceful herd of Icelandic Horses. A short walk down the driveway takes you to the water's edge, where everyone including toddlers will enjoy the sandy beach, shallow entrance to the water and floating dock.

We recommend bringing a telescope or binoculars - the sky here is big and dark, perfect for stargazers!

The waterfront is located down the cottage drive. Newell Lake has very few cottages so it is very private. You will enjoy a shallow walk-in at the dock area and a nice sand beach. There is a swimming platform for those who like to venture into the deeper water.


The Magnetawan Cottage is also home to a number of Icelandic horses. The breed, the only one found in Iceland, was developed by ponies taken to Iceland by the Norse settlers as early as the 9th century. They are mentioned in Norse mythology as well.

Winter Notes

The property is excellent for snowmobiling and cross country skiing. You are close to the Ontario Trail network and there is plenty of parking for trailers. The road is ploughed regularly and is accessible year round.

Our host was wonderful, we brought our own atv to the property and he allowed us to respectfully use it throughout without an issue. It is a beautiful property, we saw wild life and woke up to a view of horses from the windows. Great for relaxing or activity, swimming at the small beach is great. Will definitely be back. Thanks Otmar !

Magnetawan cottage is perfect if you're looking for a private getaway surrounded by nature. We watched bluebirds from the hot tub and fell asleep to the sound of owls and frogs. We paddled around the lake with the canoe and kayak supplied and there were plenty of lifejackets and paddles. The fire pit is beside the lake with benches for plenty of seating. The cottage is roomy with a huge dining table for meals and board games. Everything was clean and in good working order. The power went out in the area for a few hours one evening and the owner came over right away to set up a generator for us. We had a wonderful weekend away and look forward to coming back in the future!

The cottage is on a beautiful and quiet lake. It is a few minutes walk to the lake, though, but this came in handy given the small children we had with us. So no worries that they would go the lake by themselves unsupervised when roaming around the house. There is plenty of space, cottage is in very good condition, and nice and clean. The owner is super helpful, when the water cooker broke we had a new one on the following day, and the older kids had fun going on a horse ride with him. Great experience, and we will be back 🙂
February 2018
The cottage offered plenty of room for 5 couples, all the amenities we needed were provided, and the property itself was absolutely beautiful. Loved the horses, the lake at the end of the lane was easily accessible and great for snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. Otmar was a kind and thoughtful host and ensured we had everything we needed throughout the weekend. We are already planning to return for a long weekend again next winter!
