Retreat and relax in this rustic cottage on quiet Zwickers Lake. This lakeside cottage on the beach is ideal for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Feed our free range chickens, enjoy a paddle in the kayaks, canoe or pedalboat, and let the kids play in the sand with the many beach toys.

The space
The cottage has fresh, clean filtered drinking water, right from the tap! No need to bring bottled water, just bring your water bottle for taking water down to the beach.

This is a one bedroom cottage. The bedroom walls do not go all the way up to the high ceiling, so you can hear between the bedroom and living room easily. The bedroom contains a comfy double bed. The pullout couch in the living room turns into a double bed.

All sheets, pillows and blankets and provided.

The kitchenette has a toaster, coffeemaker (coffee, filters and sugar provided), fridge, single burner cooktop, large toaster oven, griddle, crock pot, microwave and a BBQ. All pots, pans, cutlery and dishes, etc. are supplied.

The bathroom has a shower, sink & toilet. Please bring your own toiletries. Towels are provided.

Please note: there is no wifi at the cottage.

Both cottages have their own private fire pit. There is also a communal beach fire pit. Kindling and a small amount of firewood available at no charge. Additional firewood can be purchased for $5 a bundle, cash only, or you are welcome to bring your own. Your cottage has two folding camp chairs and two plastic Adirondack chairs.

Two kayaks, a family canoe and paddle boat is available for your use. Please note: the motor boat is not for guest use.

Life jackets of various sizes are provided. Bring your fishing rod and licence and paddle out to fish for small mouth bass. There’s a hammock at the beach for your relaxing, and plenty of chairs. The water is clear and warm and the beach is gently sloped making it perfect for kids. Your kids will love the permanent raft for jumping, and the cove has no boat traffic so it’s safe for swimming. There is very little boat activity on the lake.

To reach the cottage, you must drive down a short hill on a gravel road, easily accessible by all types of vehicles.

We will be home to greet you and check you in, and provide you with a personalized code.
