You will have the entire 2-story waterfront cottage to yourselves. Located 5km from Port Loring, on beautiful Big Caribou Lake. Three bedrooms. Stairs to the waterfront. Swimming from the dock.
This is a cozy, well-appointed family cottage on a very quiet lake. If you are looking to party - this is NOT the cottage for you. However, if you are looking for quiet days of swimming, canoeing and fishing, and peaceful nights - far from any light pollution - then this place is perfect!
Main cabin has living room, dining area, kitchen and 1 bedroom on first floor; second floor has large bedroom with double bed and a smaller bedroom with bunk-beds (accommodates 6 in total). Screened porch has another dining table for outdoor living.
The main cabin is at the top of a short, steep hill with quite a few steps to the waterfront. There you will find a screened gazebo and a large waterfront deck with dock. A swimming raft is just off shore. Guests can use canoe and kayak provided - lifejackets (provided) MUST be worn. Swimming and boating is at your own risk. The shoreline is rocky - no beach - but swimming is from the dock (appox. 3 1/2-feet deep at the end) with a sturdy ladder.
There is parking for 2-3 vehicles, although turning around can be tricky with more than 2.
Cottage has electricity, running cool and hot water (lake water - so not potable). Host will provide 5 gallon jugs of drinking water. Air-tight wood stove and electric base board heating. Propane BBQ is provided.
Bathroom has composting toilet, sink and small claw-foot tub with low-pressure shower. There is also a very nice outhouse with electric lights and running water.
There is a nice fire pit, and we provide roasting sticks for your marshmallows.
Well-behaved pets are welcome - although not on the furniture.
No excessive noise after 11pm.
Everything is provided (bedding, kitchen linen, bath towels, toilet paper etc., bbq and propane) so you should only need to provide beach towels (although there are spares), food & beverages.
There is no telephone at the cottage, and there is no cell phone reception here... so you will not be reachable when you are staying here!
Zugang für Gäste
Guests can use all parts of the property, main cabin, waterfront screened gazebo, waterfront deck and dock and provided canoe and kayak.
The sauna, motorboat and bunkie are out-of-bounds.

We are very tidy, respectful guests will always leave a place as clean and tidy as we found it.
