Charming lakefront log cottage with 2 BRs with double beds and a loft with 2 twin beds. Sunny southeast exposure on a large private property surrounded by lawn & woods (direct beach access). Close by - large sandy beach, fishing dock & boat launch.

The space

New this year - a new living room sofa, TV and DVD player and two new Muskoka lawn chairs.

This is a real log cottage manufactured by Colonial Log Mills in 1984. The quaint cottage includes furnishings appropriate to cottage life plus modern conveniences you enjoy at home. Beds are of high quality and comfortable.

Views of the lake are spectacular with especially nice sunrise and evening lake views.

The front lawn is well suited for games of badminton, croquet or just relaxation in the shade or sunshine.

Guest access

Guests have access to an outdoor BBQ, beach access from the front lawn, deck chairs and dinning table, lawn chaise chairs, garden acorn fireplace (weather permitting) and access to nearby Hnausa dock for finishing and Hnausa Park for sandy shallow beaches.

Interaction with guests

We are available during all rental periods to ensure our guests have any issues resolved and fully enjoy their visit.

Other things to note

New this year 2017 - a General Store has opened at Hnausa at the corner of Highway 9 and the road to Arborg.

This is a handy location (15 minute walk from the cottage) for general supplies including Propane for the BBQ if needed, groceries and authentic Icelandic gifts.

Arborg is a quaint town located 16 Kms away ( directly west of Hnausa) which features a Public Waterslide pool for children and adults plus access to restaurants, pharmacy, grocery, gas station, library, CIBC bank and a local pub.

The cottage is in a beautiful quiet area right next to the lake. Fred was a great host, very helpful and communicative. The cottage itself is very nice, suitable for anyone who wants to find some peace and rest. The only "non-traditional" thing you need to know is, that the shower is in a separate bathouse few meters from the cottage. It's perfectly ok in summer, but we were there in late September and it was pretty chilly outside and also in the bathouse (no heater inside the bathouse) :) We had a great time and would absolutely recommend this cottage.

Response from Fred:
Thank for your feedback Michal. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. We agree with your suggestion to have a heater in the Bath House and have already made plans to have this heater installed for the next rental season. Fred

The cabin is a great place to stay. You can swim in the lake, sit under the trees and listen the birds, make a fire to roast marshmallows etc. There is a nice big BBQ on the back deck.

Watching the sunrise on the deck and seeing the moon reflection on the water was incredible. It was quiet and peaceful, a wonderful retreat. My family enjoyed the beach and playing in the lake. The lawn is large for a family get-to-gether. Really liked the bath house, nice and private. Glady

We had a great time at Fred's place in Hnausa. The cabin was cozy and quaint, with large windows and a great deck to hang out on. Being on the water, it was perfect for evening bonfires and watching the loons. The lot is really private and although it is shared with Fred's sister (2 cabins on one lot), she wasn't out the weekend we were there so we had the whole place to ourselves. There's a general store nearby and Hecla Resort is about a 20 minute drive away. We would definitely stay there again.

Fred's cottage was idyllic. The setting was right on the water, and at night you could hear the sounds of the waves lapping up on shore. The space was very comfortable and easy to access. Fred was very communicative and helpful. Would definitely stay again!
