Pass a week away from 'civilisation' in this bunkie on the shore of a 70 acre island - perfect for those adventurous enough to be self sufficient.
Luxury it is not; appliance laden it is not - paradise it is!

Comfy for 2 people - more if bringing a tent.

Lake Nipissing is 3:45 hrs north of Toronto.
It is 44 miles long and famed for it's open horizons with few days going by without spectacular sunsets.

$7/d parking

Le logement
Get away from stress of modern life by glamping in total serenity on a 70 acre nature reserve.

The bunkie is VERY BASIC but it has all you need to camp comfortably:
- log fired stove (for cooking; drying; warming up)
- gas camping stove (when too hot to have the range fired up)
- gas fridge (ice for G&T)
- sofa-bed
- mezzanine for 2 sleeping bags
- 16x16' deck/platform for dining on....or for pitching a tent (most we have had staying is family of 5)
- screen doors
- outside shower
- 2 barbecues

It is not for people who object to using an out-house.
It is not for people who need a TV or video games.
It is not for people who are bored by nature.
..& you will come across snakes; bugs etc...you’ve been warned - you will be staying in a forest so creatures go with the territory. (hopefully that covers the 'accuracy' tip..?)

Above all else it is a sanctuary not only for you but all the wildlife which call the island home: please respect that.
Hope you enjoy your stay.

Accès des voyageurs
You will be picked up from the marina on arrival and taken to the island, and on departure taken back to the marina. $7/d parking. Maxim can give you a lift in to the marina/town should you need as he goes to town most days (weather permitting)

Obviously logistics on a private island dictate that notification of time of arrival is confirmed as early as possible.

Some basic provisions will be included for guests staying a week or more...milk, couple of beers (all the important things) as well as a few nibbles and canned goods...we know you arrive in a panic having forgotten everything.

No wifi, tv, electrics but there is mobile/cellular 'phone reception. There is also a solar charger.

Autres points à prendre en note
BOATING: There is no charge for the tender to & from the marina.

You are more than welcome to use the canoe. Wear life jackets at all times.
If you are staying for a while you can rent a boat from the marina - notice required.

SAFETY:
Please read the Intro Document
First Aid Kit & Fire extinguisher in bunkie
Watch for Poison Ivy

SMOKERS:
Please ensure you EXTINGUISH all butts in ashtrays or firepit.
Please do NOT smoke inside the bunkie as a courtesy to future guests.

Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, Canada

Nope - no neighbourhood..!
No cars, no people, just the odd fishing boat.

The town (Sturgeon Falls) is a 10 minute boat ride then 5 minutes in car. Once on island treat it as a camping stay with perks.. This is for the outdoor nature enthusiast....otters; beaver; squirrel; chipmunk; fish & fowl; bald eagles; ospreys; cranes, many birds, many snakes (all cute and not dangerous!) etc...& expect the odd mouse & insect to turn up.

Also in September & October you may hear the odd gun go off in the distance as the duck hunting season kicks off.
