June 25 – Sept 5
Welcome to this charming 480 sq.ft. 1 bedroom cottage located on tranquil, crystal clear Skeleton Lake, just a short drive from the quaint village of Rosseau. The owner named it honeymoon suite, which couldn’t be more apropos and appealing for a couple seeking a much needed escape from a hectic city schedule!
The owner’s family have been on the lake since 1924 in various other locations and when they purchased this 4 acre piece of property with over 400 ft. of shoreline, they chose to completely renovate the “cabin in the woods” and rent out a beautiful three bedroom cottage with a bridge over a creek to separate them. That left the other half of the lot for the family to enjoy. The cabin is tucked into a well-treed area to the right of the other cottage, providing serene privacy at the end of your own private driveway.
This cottage has all the waterfront desires of a large cottage with your own deck and dock and the cottage itself is a haven with all the luxuries of home.
The interior is striking with its combination of modern tasteful décor and accents, contrasting materials and textures, and cottage comfy sitting and sleeping area complete with a wall mounted electric fire place and flat screen TV. The kitchen is compact with everything you need from brand new stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of cupboards and counter space.
Start your mornings with your coffee on the deck or dock, taking in the beautiful sweeping views of the expansive lake and with an east exposure, you will be privy to fabulous sunrises. There is a natural shoreline with a shallow entry to the left side of the property and it stays shallow in the bay for quite a stretch out, great for easy refreshing dips in the lake to cool off on hot days.
With a canoe, kayak and a paddle board at your disposal explore the lake and soak up it’s rare beauty. The lake was originally formed by a crater and the glaciers scraped the landscape but left the crater shape intact and that became Skeleton Lake. There are all sorts of different rumours as to how Skeleton Lake got its name, you take your pick as to which one you want to believe!
End your evenings barbequing on the deck and then gather around the lakeside fire bowl to roast marshmallows and make plans for another day in cottage country paradise!
