A new Cabin on a wonderful spot: a rocky peninsula, pines, loon calls... The only cabin/chalet facing the lake, sunset deck exposure to enjoy nature at it's best. Can be an absolute dream to enjoy the water reflections from each room at the cabin, the only visible while canoeing (Kevlar) the 500 acres lake, great fishing (mainly Lake Trout and pikes) road access and TAX INCLUDED PRICES.
The cottage is the only one visible from the lake, (of the two only property with lake access); The Place is private and on a Natural Reserve. Lea Architects, the designers of the cabin (Leaainc from North Bay) suggested us to choose colors from the site ones so the structure would merge with the surrounding environment. Their suggestions (Jean LAROCQUE and Ruth ELDER, have been marvelous professionals with the turn key project, (URL HIDDEN) gave us an open unique perspective of the lake. The structure have been built without cutting trees, but adjusting its position accordingly. The living room kitchen open space has 7 windows/glass doors so you can enjoy the lake from every point. Plenty of chairs in case you want to bring some outside to enjoy special spots. A hammock for Two give you further optionality. Two red-cedar Muskoka chairs and some items/furniture suggested from other guest were added in 2015 to better enjoy the deck and the dock.
The cabin is built over a tongue of rock and pines with a gentle slope on the east side that smoothly enter the lake and a steeper west side where the stairs and the dock is built to admire sparkling sunsets. On the south-east edge near the waters there is a spot for a fire (make sure to proper master it). On the south and west side of the cabin a deck follow the structure and give you a chance to stay outside when it rains next to the kitchen. Two or three steps and you are on the stairs to the dock from which to dive in the lake and enjoy the sun and the sunset at its best.
On the first floor there is the master bedroom which can be separated from the other bedroom or kept as an open space with a view on the lake and an overlooking over the living room. A detailed wall map in the main bedroom give you a further way to plan your vacation and enjoy the thousands lakes and canoe routes around.
Loons live the lake and you can usually see them near the cabin or from the canoe and hear them day and night. The water is warm in summer to feel the lake embrace and being from spring water you can see and feel its purity. The lake is calm most of the time and gives you many chances to see the stars while paddling at night.
A wood stove makes you, especially in winter times, enjoy the warmth while overlooking the snow and the frozen lake..

There is only one other neighbor living on the lake... you can only see their dock from the lake but not the cabin. The lake is from spring water and is really unique having two consecutive sections completely secluded and so bright in the sunshine. Once studied the map I strongly suggest to go and discover them as they are really gems you'll enjoy. There are two families of loons living on the lake and few otters you might see. Two little islands on the main section of the lake, the first on your east, the second on the south-west from the cabin. Lots of WHITE WATER LILY on your way and two owls at night. Two guests last summer had northernlight seeing from the dock! One thing I still miss so much!!
Nearby are outfitters for trekking, summer canoeing adventures and dog-sledding, country skying, others activities/expedition in wintertime. The Temagami tower for a nice overlooking of the area is a must while in Temagami as some beautiful portage with the canoe on the thousand in the vicinity. Bear Island from the Temagami Hub is another worth visit to be (URL HIDDEN) also home of one of the two old growth red and white pine forest in the area.
Bear Island is an island in Lake Temagami, it is the second largest island after Temagami Island.
Bear Island is home to the Temagami First Nation, the Teme-Augama Anishnabai (the deep water people).
