Cottage of the Week: $2.6 million for a 12-acre retreat just north of Parry Sound
ADDRESS: 47/48 Pointe Au Baril Point
NEIGHBOURHOOD: The Archipelago, Parry Sound
THE PLACE: A 12-acre property with a main cottage, a separate secondary guest cottage, a private sandy beach, a boathouse, outdoor showers and 360-degree views.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Any friends who come to stay will be wowed by the guest cottage, which has its own kitchen, bathroom, fireplace and private deck. Plus, the main cottage has large open-concept living spaces and a mammoth dining table for when the whole crew wants to congregate.
BIG SELLING POINT: Outfitting a cottage can be a pain, so the current owner is offering to sell the cottage fully furnished. All you’ll have to pack is your bathing suit and some s’mores.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Don’t plan on loading up the car to head to this cottage, as it’s only accessible by water. However, poor accessibility does make for heightened privacy.
