*Water Access Only*  You need to bring your own boat or use a water taxi from the marina.

There is something special about a cottage you can't get to by road! A place away from the noise of cars. Nestled in the woods, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, you will quickly unwind and embrace your tranquil surroundings.  With the property tucked into a quiet bay, you have all the benefits of a 7 lake chain, but far less boat traffic.

Head down to the dock and enjoy the sunshine and a refreshing swim. Catchacoma is a crystal clear lake and the water at the end of the dock is 15ft deep ideal for diving and swimming. Explore the lake by canoe, kayak or pedal boat.

The sun room beckons for you to curl up and read a great novel while taking in the outdoor views from the wrap around windows overlooking the lake.


Canoe through the 2 portages, one on Bottle Lake and the other on Sucker Lake. The latter is motorboat free.

Boat through the 7 lake chain for an amazing navigation experience.

Fishing for small and large mouth bass and trout is always fun for the kids and adults alike.

Hiking trails nearby to explore the wonderful outdoors.
