There’s 150ft of waterfront with a shallow entry which is great for wading, and launching the kayaks. The water is around 8ft deep in the middle of the river and is beautifully warm for swimming in the summer. There is such a gently current, you barely notice it. Upstream, the river is unobstructed for a kilometre or two before you reach rapids, but they are navigable by kayak and canoe. Downstream, there are rapids in sight of the cottage which are also easy to get over and then you have a clear run into Crowe Lake. You might just want to sit on the dock and take in the view so we have put Muskoka chairs there for you. There’s also fishing equipment, outdoor games, two kayaks and a pedalboat.
The deck along the front of the cottage is perfect for lazing away those summer days, or you could just relax in the hot tub after a day of hiking or snowmobiling in winter, before sitting around the campfire to tell stories and sing a few songs.
