This historical cottage is accessible by car, and offers 457 ft of sandy beach, 1.7+ kid-friendly flat acres, and spectacular views framed by the famous Centennial Ridges. Picture your Algonquin self. As the perfect stone skips to break the glassy water, the dock becomes your theatre. Loons call, moose visit, and pileated woodpeckers glide low & slow.
With full hydro power, solid cell signal & landline, 3 beds, propane, kerosene & electric light, this cottage is steeped in the mystique and majesty of one of Canada’s most treasured Provincial Parks.
To be sure, this extremely rare opportunity won’t last long. Whitefish cottage is not a land-lease property. Long before Hwy 60 made Algonquin Park accessible by car, this offering was owned by Colonel Collins, the Station Master of the Rock Lake Train Station, one of the main stopping points for the Ottawa-Perry Sound railroad; and so, after more than 100 years, it remains free-hold (with purchased & approved plans for an entirely new dwelling if you choose.)
Internationally renowned, this is Ontario’s mecca of camp songs, wilderness canoe trips & summers awash. Here, children are gifted the memories that fuel an affinity for simplicity and a deep respect for the environment. What you really need is peace, quiet, and time with those who are your closest-knit, with your own piece of sought-after Canadiana, smack dab in the middle of 7,000 square kms of protected wilderness. This is a place where silence is more than golden – it’s guaranteed.
With a complete and lasting ban on PWC, boats over 25 hp, ATVs and noise-making recreational vehicles, your solitude is guaranteed (and marshalled by Park Wardens). Linked to an astounding 16 km biking (one way) & hiking trail. Your family (and, of course, your dog) will never be happier than the days spent here!
