Had enough of the city and looking for a quick escape?

A 25 minute drive from town will bring you straight to your summer retreat. Our well maintained family cottage is situated right on Surprise Lake.
All natural wood throughout, family built and run, this classic camp has been in the family for decades. It has seen a lot of good times and is looking to host many more.
Surrounded by trees, you feel the privacy throughout. Kick back and make it your own!

The space
We are a two season camp with a private beach and tiered deck for your hot summer days and an inside firestove, cozy blankets and a sauna to keep you cozy in those, well... not so hot months.

The main cabin has three bedrooms, a sitting area, living room, large family dinner table and open concept kitchen.

The master bedroom includes a walk out deck overlooking the lake & woods, so as to provide a view but maintain your privacy. Each bedroom is equipped with a stand up oscillating fan and new hotel quality linens, so you can sink right in at the end of the day.
The newly renovated and well lit outhouse is just steps away from the entrance (no indoor toilet).

The kitchen is well stocked with oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea and Thunder Bay's finest, Rose n Crantz coffee. You'll also be set with frying pans, pots, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, baking sheets, mixing bowls, cheese grater, colander, cooking utensils, cutlery, wine glasses, plates, bowls and more. a water cooler is provided with plenty of water for your stay. We also have children's plates, bowls, forks, spoons and cups, so you won't need to bring your own!

There is a TV in the living room with Netflix, Crave, Prime, etc.. You will have to use your own username and password to login.
Children's books, toys and board games are provided to keep you entertained on those rainy days.

This authentic Thunder Bay camp boasts a huge deck, a dock for your boat and a private beach for swimming. Two outdoor dining spaces are included and one is nestled under a large mosquito net. You are welcome to bring your own canoe, paddle board, kayak or boat. However, a canoe is provided for your paddling pleasure!

You'll have your own private beach and pool noodles are provided in the sauna cabin for your enjoyment. There are beach toys included to keep your little one busy.

A spacious wood sauna cabin has been built off the deck and comes with a cozy indoor seating area. A bundle of wood is provided for you. The shower is situated inside the sauna.
We provide you with a shower towel, a beach towel, face cloth, shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

You'll find the firepit beyond the sauna, overlooking the lake. There are logs, chairs and benches for seating. Please note that firewood is not provided for the firepit. We have suggestions for nearby places in the manual.
