September and October offer some of the best weather of the year. The days are warm, evenings are cool and the bugs are few and far between!

We invite you to make memories with your family at our family cottage - a place we call the Island View Retreat. It's a luxury & traditional 4-season log cottage located on the shores of Big Gull Lake in Arden, Ontario.

Our guests repeatedly tell us they love:

- That the cottage comfortably sleeps 14 people
- The shallow, sandy beach with gentle sloping entrance that is ideal for young children.
- The flat, sandy fire pit that sits directly along the waterfront.
- The large dock and miles of lake to explore by boat, kayak, canoe and stand up paddle board.
- The world class fishing (Walleye, Bass, Pike, Muskie, Panfish)
- The large elevated deck providing a wonderful place for socializing and relaxing
- That we're next to Camp's Bay Cottages & Marina, offering a full service gas dock, boat rentals, ice, bait, ice cream and a convenience store with most items you might need during your stay.

Booking Details:

- Summer: We rent by the week only (Sunday thru Sunday)
- Fall / Winter / Spring: We will take partial week rentals (min 3 night stay)
- We do not allow pets. Sorry :(

Location:

3 hours from the GTA, 2 hours from Ottawa, and 1.5 hours from Kingston. 15 Minutes from Northbrook and Arden, Ontario.


The Cottage:

Built in 2007 and maintained with true pride of ownership, the Island View Retreat has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a 120sqft bunkie. The cottage offers the perfect getaway for families of up to 14 people (larger groups will be considered on a case by case basis). Our most frequent visitors are multigenerational families that come year after year and enjoy the retreat as a family gathering place (grandparents, parents and grandchildren).

This is a wonderful place to create cherished memories with your loved ones. The pictures here don't do justice to how gorgeous the cottage is in real life. The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived and the owners were wonderful about providing all the information we needed during our stay. The cottage has a wonderful layout, there's plenty of space around the dinner table when you want everyone together but also plenty of space for people to go off and do their own thing without stepping on anyone's toes. The kitchen is fully equipped and between it and the massive Weber BBQ outside, we had everything we needed to cook some really wonderful meals during our stay. The WiFi was great and I had no issues working remotely during our stay. There's a Roku TV with Bell satellite although that was rarely used as the view of the lake was more impressive anyway. We were initially worried about the neighbouring marina but that turned out to be a value add as we were able to walk over and rent a boat for a couple of days - they even let us use their fish cleaning hut to clean the fish we caught during our stay. Speaking of which, there's plenty of fish in Big Gull Lake - during our stay we caught 3 walleye (large enough to keep and eat), several smallmouth bass, and a pike right off the dock! Overall this was one of the best cottage rental experiences we've had and we'll certainly be back. Thank you Corey and Kevin for having us!

There aren't enough words to describe how perfect this cottage is. Ten people from 2-62 had the best week ever. There was something for everyone. Accommodations were perfect. Owners were excellent to work with. We will definitely return!

We had a great week recently with three generations of our family. The large sandy area and shallow water entry were a hit with our little ones. We also had fun catch-and-release fishing off the dock, using the many watercraft and swimming out to the floating platform. Kevin was quick to respond to any questions. Thanks for a memorable family holiday!

We absolutely loved our stay at Island View. It was perfect for our stay as a three generation family. Everything was easily accessible and there were plenty of beds/bedrooms for everyone. The cottage is a wonderful blend of rustic and modern and exceptionally clean. The sandy beach was perfect for the smaller kids to play and swim and the older kids loved fishing off of the dock. We also utilized the canoe, paddle boards and kayaks a lot and our favourite thing to do was paddle to "Fairy Island".

Kevin and Corey were very responsive and even when the power went out on our first night after a big storm, they responded quickly to our questions at 11pm! It was also very convenient to have the Camps Bay Marina right next door for essentials and a boat rental (and ice cream cones!).

If you are looking for a comfortable cottage, with magnificent scenery, for a large extended family then this is the place for you.

Stayed with my elderly mother and my 3 sisters with their teenage children. Room for everyone. Multiple indoor and outdoor eating areas for adults and kids. Multiple fridges, chest freezer, and a well stocked kitchen with high-end BBQ to cook. Close to small town amenities if you forgot something.

Sit outside under cover, by the fire, on the sandy beach or on the dock. Canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddle board in the clear waters of Big Gull Lake.

Coming back next year.
