An Ontario Island Is Selling For Under $800K & It Comes With A Little Bachelor Shack

If your dream is to buy yourself an Ontario island and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life (or your annoying neighbours), this property may be for you. But only if you're looking for something super simple or aren't afraid of a little fixer-upper.

The home at 2 Island 1420, Georgian Bay is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom bachelor shack that offers 288 square feet of living space — making it a possible nightmare for couples but an introvert's dream.

Despite its size, the home does offer all the essential amenities, including a 100 amp hydro service and a 2,000-gallon holding tank.
