Boater’s Paradise!

The space
2 Bedroom Newly renovated with character - Year round Waterfront Canal home on McPhee Bay Lake Simcoe near Casino Rama and Orillia.
Boater’s Paradise! *** Please note that there is an area on the property that the owners may occupy during your stay. We have a large boat/slip and another small cottage on the property that we may or may not occupy during your stay. See photos.

Outside Summer:
Easy access to beautiful clear waters of McPhee Bay on Lake Simcoe. Bring your Boat ! This property offers 30’ of dockage suitable for large boats and watercraft but the waterfront is not suitable for swimming. We offer a “cool tub” for those hot summer days at the waterside dock and a “hot tub” on the cottage deck for night time relaxation. The Cooling tub is available in the summer season only. It’s just a short 300 meter paddle board, canoe, kayak or boat ride from the dock to the crystal clear waters of McPhee Bay on Lake Simcoe. Our community offers a private park and beach for owners and guests and we are located directly beside McRae Point Provincial Park and Beach. You can “day use” the Provincial Park beach for a small fee. The bay water is very clear and there are multiple sand bars to pull your boat up to within minutes. The host has plenty of boating experience in the area. Fish from your private dock.
We also have an outdoor fire pit for your personal use, lots of grass for lawn games, and bikes available for a ride to the Beach park or Provincial Park. There is a very nice walking trail in the Provincial Park that you may access for free.

Outside Winter:
If the conditions are right, skating may be possible on the canal directly in front of our cottage/dock. Guests may also enjoy the outdoor fire pit and hot tub during the winter months.
Winter Walking trails are available in McRae Provincial Park and the trail is an easy walk from the property. Ice fishing is possible on Lake Simcoe when fully frozen and there are also Ice Fishing Hut rentals nearby.
Access to OFSC snowmobile trails are just across the bay when frozen or a 4km ride on the road or shoulder of the road when there is enough snow coverage.

We have 2 small but well appointed bedrooms with a King Bed in one and 2 single beds in the other. Let us know when booking if you would prefer both bedrooms to be set up as 4 x single beds. The bedrooms both have hanging closets. We also have a separate sitting area with a TV and a nice queen size pull out sofa.

The kitchen has ample cupboards and counter space, a dishwasher, convection oven and cooktop, built in microwave and a large fridge with an ice maker and cold water dispenser. The kitchen is well equipped with dishes, cutlery, utensils, pots, pans, Keurig coffee maker, drip coffee maker, electric kettle, sandwich grill and various basic spices. The natural live edge dining table will easily seat 6 - 8 people.
A Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate Bar is set up for your use. Enjoy some complimentary hot drinks !

The living area features a cozy propane gas fireplace, and leatherette reclining sofa, reclining loveseat and a separate electric leather recliner. We have a 55” TV and you may access your own Netflix account as well as Shaw Direct Satellite TV service for news, sports and various other programming selections. There is a sliding door that walks out to the deck which features a propane gas BBQ and a 5-6 person hot tub.

The bathroom is bright and roomy, and has a toilet, vanity, vanity plug and stand up shower stall with glass sliding door. White Bath towels are provided. There is also a full size stacked washer and dryer just outside the bathroom. Good spot to dry your wet towels !
