*COVID enhanced cleaning protocol*

This tiny island cabin has modern touches making you feel right at home. You'll enjoy a beautiful lake view whether you're inside or outside. On the covered porch you'll find an outdoor kitchen and chairs to lounge. The area is completed with a fire pit, outdoor shower and clean airy outhouse. With your own dock, you can swim, boat, and catch a sunrise and sunset; absolute perfection...

The space
PLEASE READ *IMPORTANT* INFO:

Below, we have worked to give you the clearest picture of what to expect from the space and your stay. Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us :)

Your Suite Island Retreat, aka The Bunkie, neighbours our cottage, the only two places on the island, but enjoys its own private setting facing the lake. We each have our own private docks on different sides of the island. There is a common space behind the Bunkie and our cottage where you'll find a badminton net and rackets, that you are free to use :)

With nowhere to walk on the island, your dock offers the freedom to travel by water. A canoe is provided (with life jackets and safety kit), and a map to nearby hiking (always bring your phone/GPS and stay on the well-marked path, as you will be surrounded by miles and miles of crown land.

This beautiful lake has many islands and nooks and crannies to explore (always travel with a phone/GPS). You may want to consider bringing/renting a Stand Up Paddle board for some extra fun or a floating water toy. Water toys are available to rent at Cottage Toys in Lakefield, the nearest town.

Our back deck and bbq can be in earshot of your Bunkie depending on wind, etc. We are generally quiet, but occasionally have friends up, but we will let you know :). Our fire pit is on the other side of the island and noise can't be heard from this area of the island.

Respecting your privacy is our top priority. Yet we also love meeting new people and are open to sharing a drink should the timing work for everyone.

We request that our guests be adults and that only two occupants visit at one time. If a parent and older child would like to stay, contact us and let us know.

Please note, although we don't allow pets at the Bunkie, we do have a dog, Daisy, a golden doodle who is friendly and easy-going. Due to the island experience, when we are on the island she will be there too. Although she is learning that the Bunkie area is not hers, she will likely pop over to meet you. If you find her bothersome just tell her to go, ignore her, and she will leave :)

Note and reminder: the Suite Island Retreat is for those who want a quiet getaway. It is not a party place, and fireworks are not permitted. Be aware that sound can carry across the lake, especially at night or when the lake is still and quiet.

THE AREA:

The Bunkie is located on an island at the end of a bay with lots of privacy. To the East, the island is surrounded by crown land and, to the West, and one diagonally across from the Bunkie, we have a sprinkling of friendly cottagers'.

It is important to note that during peak-season there is more boat traffic going by, whether it is the odd speed boat going for a zip around the lake, or people cruising or fishing.

GETTING THERE:

Parking is at Stoney Point Marina (easy to find on Google Maps), we have a designated parking spot for you.

Options for getting to and from the Island: water taxi (included) or bring your own boat. There is a public launch at the Marina, for a fee.

- Water Taxi: book with us and we will pick you up and drop you off at both ends of your stay. It's about a 15min boat ride.
- Canoe: Bring your own canoe and paddle in, it’s about 45 min at a relaxed pace.
- Boat: Bring your own boat. Note: this lake is very rocky and not always marked. Give plenty of space around markers, travel with care. Please respect clean boat etiquette, to avoid bringing any unwanted marina life into the lake.

If all of this sounds like something you would enjoy, we look forward to hearing from you and sharing this beautiful piece of paradise! Contact us with any questions.

My husband and I have been hosting Airbnb guests for many years. We love offering a welcoming space that feels like home. Our Airbnb locations attract visitors from near and far. Whether you are traveling to explore the area, have a business meeting, or visiting family or friends, we work to make your experience the best it can be. My husband is a high school teacher, and home contractor, while I am a property manager with Airbnb and other long-term rental properties. Aside from work, we enjoy cottage life and spending quality time with friends and family. Hmmm... we also love great wine, and meeting new people! Looking forward to meeting you! Krista & Andre
