3 Bedrooms

A RARE OPPORTUNITY! 1 1/2 storey, off-grid, log cottage on 10 acres of Canadian shield with 465 feet of totally private waterfrontage on quiet Donaldson Bay of spectacular Charleston Lake. This 3 season retreat provides opportunity to return to a simpler, yet comfortable, life in the woods. Experience and reconnect with the raw nature surrounding you on this water access only, deep water setting.

This 3 bedroom cozy 1200 sq ft log cottage is situated on 10 acres of pristine, rugged Canadian Shield. It has solar power which operates technology, battery recharging and lights. Low flush composting toilet, propane fridge and stove, outdoor shower, upper and lower decks, composting outhouse and large waterfront docking area are some of the features of this cottage. Water pumped to a reservoir above the cottage is gravity fed to the kitchen and bathroom. The main floor has kitchen, dining, living area, c/w wood burning stove, master bedroom, 2 piece bathroom and large entrance vestibule. The second story, with cathedral ceiling, has two spacious bedrooms. Under the cottage is a work bench, storage area and a gas powered 4000 watt generator which is wired to 120 watts for heavier work such as electric tools, vacuum cleaner, etc. The cottage is fully furnished and move-in ready. Since there is no hydro, all appliances are propane fueled and the taxes are only $1,900 annually, the ongoing operating costs are very low. The 10'x20' side deck provides ample room for barbecuing, socializing and eating up the incredible view of the lake and wilderness beyond. The 14'x16' mid deck offers a gazebo with wooden chairs and coffee table for those lazy, hot summer days when you need a bit of shade. At lake level is a stationery dock approx 30' x 10' with an attached newly constructed 8'x16' floating dock. The clear water is wonderfully warm and feels soft to the skin. Many a bass has been caught right off either dock!
