This property is located on Old Mill Bay, the most protected bay in Lake Superior (part of Batchawana Bay) just 30-45 minutes north of Sault Ste. Marie.

History:
This cottage was built by my grandfather, passed down to my father and again to my brother and I. We have decided to share this property with others and use the revenue from rent to help fund our continued educations as well as continue to develop the grounds. Each year we are constantly making improvements between stays to enhance the property. We are happy to share it with you.

I grew up in a modest, hard-working family in Northern Ontario, where I was raised to believe in the virtues of hard work, integrity and personal accountability. After graduating with an honours degree in Kinesiology and starting my own non-profit company, I decided to return to school for my doctorate degree. My life's work and research is aimed towards improving quality of life. I am an avid traveller and love the outdoors. Together my brother and I rent our family cottage on Airbnb to subsidize our educational endeavours. We hope you cherish moments like we did. "Have a healthy disregard for the impossible"
