155 Island ADDRESS:
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Private island near Georgian Bay Honey Harbour,
AGENT: Stephanie Anne Newlands and Matthew Alexander Parent, Private Service Realty
THE PLACE: A private island that is just under three acres (the size varies depending on water level), and located 15 minutes from Georgian Bay’s Honey Harbour. The three buildings have a quirky charm, and contain six bedrooms in total.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: With three living spaces—a three-bedroom cottage, a one-bedroom guesthouse with a kitchen and bathroom and a two-bedroom bunkie—you can invite guests, but still have enough privacy to lounge around all morning in your robe.
BIG SELLING POINT: Inside the three-slip boathouse is a 15-foot boat that the owners are hoping to sell along with the property, so there’s no need to hitch rides or buy a dinghy.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This private island is so off the beaten path that it doesn’t even show up on Google maps. Perfect for a secluded getaway, but difficult to give directions to friends and family.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• $5026.11 in taxes (2011)
• 90-foot dock
• 6 bedrooms
• 3 buildings
• 2 bathrooms
• 3-slip boathouse
• 1 fireplace

Now, this is what cottages used to look like before people determined that they could not live without granite countertops and heated floors. Quaint, kitschy, inviting, beautiful views. A lovely place. Of course it’ll probably be torn down.
nice place but looks super overpriced for what you get. Not in need of any ‘granite’ but if you wanna charge a milly and a half maybe have a cottage that matches that price
Private Island!!! Old school cottage charm!!! I love it
finally. a real cottage! unreal price though.
great cottage for what a cottage is supposed to be about–kicking back with family and friends.
If you are going to list your cottage for over a million and a half dollars – you might like to invest a bit and have a stager set up your place. You know, swap out that God awful fake green grass under the dining room table. YUCK. Money certainly doesn’t buy a person taste. I’m not saying you need to spend a lot to have a nice looking place either. Just some judgment.
