Just a short walk or boat ride away, discover the covered bridge River Walk with barista and fabulous butter tarts. Town conveniences such as restaurants and cinema are just a short walk away. If travelling by boat, there are literally 40 miles of exploring to do!
The River Bend Cottage, a 1600-square-foot cottage, is light and airy, with a large unheated sunroom that faces the shore. The spacious living room features easy chairs and a sofa, as well as a TV and DVD. The simple, functional kitchen has all the popular amenities, including a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and dishware. Off the kitchen is the dining area, featuring a dining table and chairs, which leads to the 3-season sunroom. Just outside the sunroom is a stone patio complete with barbeque for easy summer meals. There is a fire pit at the shoreline.
Three bedrooms, on the upper level, are small but not lacking in comfort. The master bedroom, on the main level, has a queen bed with its own en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed while the third bedroom has a bunk bed, (single on top double on the bottom) and the third bedroom has a double futon. An additional four-piece bathroom is on the upper floor. River Bend has wheelchair access on the main floor only.
The neatly manicured, gently sloping lawn leads to 80 feet of river frontage, where there is a 20-foot-long dock with easy access for swimming. The depth of the water at the end of the dock is approximately 6 feet. A boat of up to 20 feet can be docked. The river, which winds around and through the Town of Magnetawan and the Burk’s Falls region, is quiet and picturesque. A paddleboat is provided to explore the river.
