About This Cottage

Port Severn is a popluar spot for cottage seekers - it is convenient to Toronto, being an easy drive via highway 400. It offers great boating, whether your preference is the Trent Severn Waterway or the open waters of Georgian Bay and it oozes with all things cottage country.

Tucked neatly on a dead end road is where you'll find Slip Away. As usual, we couldn't resist a little word play in our name for this cottage - Slip Away is located close to a Marina which, while it could serve your boating needs, may not be required since you have your own private dock and waterfront to use.

The cottage is cute and comfy. There is an open-concept living/dining/kitchen area, and the bedrooms and bathroom are set in behind them. The living room has a wood stove for cool nights and satellite TV for rainy day and evening entertainment.

The yard has plenty of room for outdoor entertainment. A generous sized grassy area is great for throwing a frisbee or football, a game of tag or whatever seizes the imagination. There is a small beach area for children with a sandy shallow walk in.

If you fancy some exploring, the area bristles with activity. Historic Midland-Penetanguishene and the Wye Marsh make a great day's outing. If you've never seen the marine railway at Big Chute it's worth a trip. Also, it's an easy walk to town for shopping, restaurants or ice cream cones, and you can watch the boats as they lock through at Historic Lock 45

The cottage is located on a point on Gloucester Pool, a 13-kilometre, island speckled lake that is a part of the Trent Severn Waterway. The waters are good for swimming, fishing and boating, and access to the waterway gives you the opportunity to boat pretty well anywhere. Entry to the water varies, and there is a shallow and sandy area for waders and children. Deeper water swimming is available further out.


July 2017
It was a super week, everything very nice, clean, tidy... very handy to walk to the General Store, watch the boats go through Lock 45...outdoor patio there as well. Wonderful big grassy lawn to play games on.. Loved the screened in porch...great to be in there in the evenings when mosquitos are out! The only drawback is the shallow lake water and the tall weeds/seaweeds, mucky bottom in the water... Very difficult to have a good swim in...without touching the seaweed. But overall, if not big swimmers, it's a beautiful vacation!!
