    Description

    One of the most spectacular features of Birchview Cottage is the huge deck with glass barriers so there is no obstruction to the enjoyment of the stunning panoramic bay view. The deck is so large that it resembles a café with three ample patio tables in graduated sizes and accompanying chairs. There is also a large umbrella for shade if needed. This is the perfect place to enjoy a full moon for hours, or enjoy ice cream sundaes in mid-afternoon!

    For those who really appreciate a glamorous setting, this cottage is for you! Eight outdoor stone stairs lead down to the front foyer which is very welcoming and bright with ceramic tiled floors. There is even a wall niche with lighting and a granite counter for you to keep track of your keys when you arrive. Beneath the 25’ vaulted living room ceiling with warm golden paint, leather furniture is comfortably placed around a backgammon coffee table. The sofa faces a flat screen television and a lofty gas fireplace for chilly days and evenings. A beautifully classic kitchen with granite countertops is open to the living room and accommodates up to 10 people where you can enjoy a marvelous sunrise every morning of your stay. The kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator/freezer, stove, oven, a large fan, microwave, expresso machine, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, and dishwasher. Those preparing meals will still enjoy being able to spend time in the open-plan space with family or friends. Try out the outdoor gas barbecue with its natural gas pipeline. There are two walkouts to the deck. If you prefer more natural surroundings, follow the deck stairs down to the shore with 100’ water frontage where there is another large table and chairs placed in the shade of a large birch tree. Supervision of small children will be extremely manageable from either the glass enclosed upper deck or the lower patio or shoreline area with a firepit ready for toasting marshmallows. If you want that spa feeling, Birchview has that too! Both a sauna and hot tub await you here, perhaps to relax the muscles after a day of swimming and boating. What would your family and friends like to do? There are nearby walking trails and great fishing. Take the canoe and/or paddleboat to go to the general store (a 2-minute boat ride away). A government dock and launch is also nearby. Ample lifejackets and water shoes are available for all people aged five and up. We recommend water shoes due to the rocky lake bottom. In winter, there are skidoo trails and rentals around the corner. Twelve pot lights are inset into the eaves trough so you will have no problem finding your way around the cottage at night. On rainy days a ping pong table in the basement will provide hours of fun for both children and adults. A CD/DVD player will allow you to enjoy plenty of on-site movies. Climb the dark hardwood maple staircase to the master bedroom that features another gas fireplace and all of the bedrooms, including the two off the living room, have a classic design. All but one of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, and the cottage is so well insulated that the gas fireplace warms the living spaces in a matter of a few minutes.
