Owl's Aum - F499
The great room is the heart of the cottage with its vaulted, exposed beam ceiling, stone fireplace and sunlight that floods the room. This is where families gather to watch a movie, play a board game or relax after a day on the water. The comfortable couches and chairs offer seating for seven people. The great room opens up to the kitchen/dining room with a large dining table which can seat up to ten people. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, and much more. The large island and butcher block allows for added counter space for ease of meal preparation.
The spacious Muskoka Room is just off the kitchen/dining room. With its large sectional, additional dining table and wrap around screen windows, it’s the perfect room to take in the lake views and enjoy the breeze off of the lake.
The master bedroom is on the main level of the cottage. It has a queen bed, ensuite bathroom and full-length windows that look out to the lake. Also on this level is the half bathroom and laundry room with washing and drying machines.
The three other bedrooms are located on the upper level. Two bedrooms offer queen beds and the third has a bunk bed with a double on top as well as a double on the bottom. There is also a trundle bed that pulls out and is a double bed for two people. The modern, four-piece bathroom is located between the bedrooms and has a stand-up shower and a classic claw-foot tub.
The deck is located lakeside and stretches the length of the cottage. The deck offers outdoor dining, lounge seating and a mix of sun and shade throughout the day. From the deck there are steps down to the lawn with quaint seating areas that have been created for the enjoyment of a quiet cup of tea and a good book.
The cottage is built on Canadian Shield, which is a smooth, ancient crystalline rock that continues to the shoreline. The waterfront offers a gradual entry with some rocks, that can be slippery, so proceed with caution. The L-shaped dock offers great fishing and swimming, and can dock a motorboat up to 21ft. The water depth is approximately five feet at the end of the dock. There is a canoe, a kayak and a rowboat (a small outboard motor may be brought with the guest and attached to this boat) offering hours of enjoyment on the water.
Tea Lake has a public boat launch just off Upper Big Chute Road a short five minute boat ride from Owl’s Aum cottage. Tea lake connects to the Trent Severn Waterway under a bridge and through a section of water lovingly referred to by locals as “The Trickle”. The Trickle is approximately 500 ft long, 50 ft wide with water depth of 18 to 48 inches.
The cottage is located just 10 minutes off Highway 400 with quick and easy access to the towns of Coldwater, Port Severn and Severn Falls. These towns have many restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping as well as grocery stores, LCBOs and ice cream shops. Big Chute Marine Railway is a 5 minute drive from the cottage and is a must-visit as it is the only marine railway of its kind in North America. Six Mile Lake Provincial Park is an excellent spot for a day trip as is the White’s Falls Dam where you are able to swim in the pool of water at the base of the falls.
In the winter, the cottage is perfect for all outdoor winter activities. The cottage is located on the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) B-105 trail. Mount St. Louis Moonstone and Horseshoe Valley downhill ski hills are approximately a half hour drive from the cottage. Also, Tea Lake has great ice fishing as does Six Mile Lake, which is a short drive from the cottage.
How “The Trickle” works/rules:
Tea Lake to Severn River:
“The Trickle” is located at the north west most point of Tea Lake. Boaters approaching “The Trickle” will see two narrow docks approximately 10 ft apart. This is the entrance channel.
Boaters need to trim up their outboard motors, disembark from their boat and “walk” it along the port side dock channel section (approximately 30ft). Depth in this area is only 18 inches. Water level remains steady at 18” as it is regulated by the Trent Severn lock system and never fluctuates more that an inch all year round.
Once through this section, motor can be lowered (water about 4 ft deep) and travel approximately 500ft to the bridge under Upper Big Chute Road. Approximately 40 feet before the bridge underpass the water depth is reduced again to 18 inches and boat motors may need to be trimmed up but boaters do not need to get out of their boat.
Boaters then travel under the bridge underpass and out into the beautiful Trent-Severn waterway. The Big Chute Marina and the Big Chute Railway is less than a 5 min boat ride to the west.
Maximum recommended boat size to fit through “The Trickle”: 21 ft, 4000 lbs, max canopy height 8 ft (to fit under bridge)
