Relax in the scenic beauty of McGregor Bay -- a location favoured by many Group of Seven artists. Located on an island, the cottage is surrounded by unspoiled waterways. Enjoy this well equipped cottage set in a nature lover's paradise.
Drink your morning coffee listening to the haunting call of the loon; jump off the dock for a refreshing swim; set up your easel to capture the breathtaking nature surrounding you; or cast your line into the clear water for a fishing experience like no other.

Review from Cate, a renter in 2015:
"Last summer I stayed at this cottage with friends from Brooklyn, NY. We had a splendid time. My host was helpful, responded quickly and answered all my questions. The cottage was incredibly clean and comfortable. It has sleep cabins, which gave us privacy when we wanted it. The main cabin is spacious and beautifully furnished. It is is an off-grid place in the best sense of the word. It has all the amenities and embodies peacefulness and calm. We cooked together, played scrabble on the porch (by the light of lanterns and candles) and swam until we were waterlogged. Its proximity to Killarney Provincial Park makes this locale perfect for day trips or overnight canoe/kayak adventures. The water around the cottage is protected so the children were able to swim without any worries. Personally, I sat on the dock and read, marvelling at the wonder of Northern Ontario."
