The property is directly on the waterfront, among tall trees, conveniently close to amenities with Internet. Large deck, private beach outside and great family space, vaulted ceiling, chef-kitchen, steam sauna, wood burning fire place and home theatre for movie nights.
Roost Cottage is a spacious bungalow with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the large property on Moore Lake. The open concept living room, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms with large kitchen make for really great family space for spending time together. Ping pong table and darts play room in the basement.
The deck spans the lake side of the cottage and is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the view of the lake and the property which is surrounded by very tall trees. A large fire pit by the water is great for bon fires. The screened in Gazebo makes for a great quiet escape from the group. The floating dock is a great place to watch the sky at sunset.
Roost Cottage is nestled in a calm cove on private land with 120 feet of beach front popular with small children, fishing enthusiasts, swimmers, birds and fowl.
Inside, the chef's kitchen is expansive and well stocked. There is a new BBQ available through sliding doors accessible from the kitchen.
The large, open concept living room has a Barrymore L-shape sofa, a comfy bean bag chair and a few rocking chairs for relaxing and taking in evening movie nights or sitting by the fire. We have a new large-screen retractable cinema screen with projector and hundreds of movies to enjoy.
The four bedrooms share two bathrooms. From the back of the cottage you have access to two bedrooms with a shared 3-piece bathroom. The front of the cottage has two bedrooms that share the master ensuite with 3-piece and steam shower.

Moore Lake is a fresh water lake, you'll see minnows and fish in the clear water from the dock. The lake bottom can be rocky and porous and a variety of sizes of water shoes are available in the hall closet for those who want to wade, not swim in. We are the only sandy beach shore on the lake which is great for small children. While the lake is at first shallow it gets deep quickly past the floating dock.
One canoe and 2 kayaks are included in the rental for exploring the lake and connected water systems. From our lake you have access to a vast area of little discovered, connected lakes in the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands.
There is a new floating dock which is very nice for getting into the water and for star gazing. The large outdoor fire pit is amazing for cook-outs and roasting marshmallows (burning permitted 2 hours before sun set only). There is a screened in Gazebo with a couple of rocking chairs for privacy at the water's edge.
In the winter enjoy complementary snowshoe rental or bring your cross-country skis and glide across the lake for a memorable time spent in this winter wonderland.
