The space

We're retired professionals who finally have time to work on our creative ventures. We write mysteries, thrillers, sci fi and children's books.

Factor Lake is the perfect spot to disconnect from the city buzz, recharge and find new inspiration. When you need a break, drop a line off the end of the dock to catch dinner, pick wild berries, or go for a refreshing swim.

Steampunk art, children's book illustration, wood carving, and various crafts are just some of the things we like to do.

Guest access

Guests have sole access to their private bedroom, plus shared spaces like the modern kitchen, livingroom/dining room, as well as the lakeside sauna and creative centre.

Interaction with guests

We are near one of the Quetico Park's backcountry entrances (Beaverhouse station) and can help you plan for long or short canoeing adventures in the world-renowned canoeing paradise. We'll even pick you up when you're done and bring you back for a well-deserved sauna and a great dinner!

Other things to note

We are gluten free but you don't have to be. Breakfast is included and we'll provide information on meal options for lunch and dinner if you'd rather not cook.

Very nice accomodations but if you are uncomfortable taking over someone's house while they are there then you might not like it but Brenda was very accommodating and we hardly saw her most of the time. The upstairs bedroom has a fairly steep and narrow stairway but was not difficult to navigate for us seniors. While Brenda is promoting her BNB as an artist retreat it would be an ideal location for someone with a boat wanting to do some fishing as it is situated on beautiful lake which apparently has good lake trout fishing. We didn't have time to try out the sauna but it is a great wood fired sauna attached to a large sitting area right on the shore of the lake.

I'm a retired professional spending my summers at beautiful Factor Lake, Ontario. My leisure time is spent exploring the area, writing novels and, once in a while, catching a fish off the dock.
