Beautiful Tranquil Setting

Tranquil Bay Cottage is a spacious cottage located on a quiet bay on the Gull River (7 min. from the mouth to Shadow Lake) offering scenic views from both indoors and outdoors. The open concept layout lends itself to entertaining and has cottage wide views of the water. Watch the loons, ducks, and all nature has to offer right from the kitchen table. The beautiful sandy beachfront and lake bottom make for enjoyable beach time along with a variety of water activities including water toys, games, land trampoline, canoe, kayak, and rowboat. Revel in simply jumping off the dock into clear, clean water for a swim. Or if you prefer, enjoy fishing right off the dock. When weather chases you indoors, there are plenty of entertainment choices including board games, and TV options. For evening relaxation, settle in at the fire pit close by the water – an excellent spot for spending family time under the stars, enjoying a campfire and roasting marshmallows. In winter, cosy up by the fireplace after a day of skiing or snowmobiling, or skating on the bay (weather permitting). Tranquil Bay Cottage is perfect for hosting family and friends and creating lasting memories.
