About This Cottage
Tucked away at the end of a wooded lane, this cottage is a haven for those seeking tranquility in a secluded location along with beautifully presented accommodation.
It’s rare to find a cottage that retains a traditional feel yet has been updated to offer the contemporary amenities and features you’d expect in your home. This one has it all, so you can enjoy great décor in every room but still get that great ‘cottage vibe’.
The first thing you notice is the huge tree that abuts the main door making it feel as though the cottage is a natural part of the property. Then as you enter, the ambience of the honey-coloured wood, leather furniture and carefully selected artwork creates a feeling of comfort and luxury that is rarely seen in cottage country.
The open-plan living and dining room on the waterside and the kitchen to the rear form the heart of the cottage, with the bathroom to one side of the kitchen.
Two bedrooms are off the living room, and the third is to the side of the dining room, giving privacy to two couples or families vacationing together.
Outside, it’s a matter of choice where you want to claim your spot to sunbathe, sit in the shade, or read a book on the dock. A screened gazebo is a great spot for pre-dinner drinks or just extending your day into the evening. And of course there’s a campfire pit for roasting marshmallows.
Steps lead down to the extensive dock where you’ll find sturdy wooden steps into the water (about 3ft deep). And here’s where the adventure starts. Take the canoe or kayaks out to explore the beauty of Mazinaw Lake and Bon Echo Provincial Park. Rent a boat from Smart’s Marina or bring your own, and the lake becomes yours to explore.
You won’t want to miss the hiking trails in the park so the owner has thoughtfully provided a Parks Pass for one vehicle.
We fell in love with this ‘cottage in the woods’ and think you will too.

Nearby Mazinaw Rock is a 100-metre (330 ft) high cliff just north of Cloyne. It stretches for 1.5 kilometres (0.9 mi) along Mazinaw Lake, and is a landmark in the Bon Echo Provincial Park that draws the attention of many campers and cottagers. Beneath the cliff itself, the lake's depth reaches 145 metres (476 ft), making it the second deepest lake in Ontario besides the Great Lakes. This means the cliff face continues nearly straight down for a total of roughly 245 metres (804 ft). The rock is composed of granite and black dykes. The rock is credited in giving the name to Bon Echo Provincial Park, because it is responsible for the large echo that is unmistakable during thunderstorms and fireworks displays (Bon Echo is French for "good echo"). The face of the rock is riddled with over 260 aboriginal pictographs. This makes it the largest collection of visible pictographs in Canada. The word Mazinaw originates from Algonkian, which means "painted rock".
