I know what you’re probably thinking: “I can spend a weekend on a private island and not end up hundreds of dollars in debt?” Your disbelief is well-placed, since we tend to think that these kinds of luxurious can only be experienced by luxurious people.
Or maybe it doesn't. Hold your gasps until the end ya'll - because this small private island in Northwestern Ontario is offering you that opportunity at luxury without the stress of the big prace tag attached. *I will now wait for the applause and cheers before continuing.*
Located in Red Pine Island, a secluded destination only minutes from downtown Sioux Narrows, this cottage is the ultimate yet still affordable summer destination. Once there, you can enjoy an afternoon reading a book in their sun room, or even go outside to sun tan near the pine trees.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms included in the rental, the home is able fit six guests at $449 a night during the week and $499 a night during Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Yeah, you read that right. You can pay as low as $75 a night for your own private island. The thing is, too - that it gets even better.
Also included in the cottage is an indoor fireplace, cooking basics, WiFi, a BBQ grill and children’s books and toys. There is also heating and air conditioning, and - most importantly - a coffee maker.
In terms of swimming, the island is located in Whitefish Bay on Lake of the Woods; a body of water that is crystal clear and also swimmable. In addition to that, there's also beach towels and snorkelling gear you can use at the home, though feel free to bring any of your own water activities as well.
Entry to the island is by boat, where it can be accessed through a user pay boat launch at the Sioux Narrows Government Dock. You are also able to book boat rentals in Sioux Narrows or in nearby Kenora.
