Location: Magnetawan River Mouth of Doe Lake, Near Katrine, Ontario

What better holiday than to while away the time with a fishing line hanging from your boat as you ease down the Magnetawan River. Robin's Nest is a relaxing spot, just made for doing practically nothing. The kids will love it too.

Just a short drive from the town of Huntsville, the cottage features a long grassy area that approaches the dock. Along the way to the water, there is a hot tub, 31-foot deck, barbeque, lawn chairs, a gazebo with table and chairs, and a fire pit near the water for cozy evenings.

The cozy pine-lined bungalow has a fireplace in the living room with three armchairs and a futon for seating. As well, there is a satellite television with a DVD player. Heating to the cottage is through propane which can keep Robin's Nest at a cozy temperature. The flooring is carpet. Throughout the cottage there are pine walls and pine ceilings.

The kitchen has laminate flooring, a dishwasher, microwave, fridge, stove, coffee maker, bowls and cooking equipment, with lots of counter space. The kitchen looks out onto the deck, hot tub, and play area. The dining area near the kitchen has seating for four.

There are three bedrooms, with the main bedroom sporting a queen-size bed. A second bedroom also has a queen-bed. Just off the dining area is a small third bedroom with a single set of bunk beds and an adjoining 3-piece bathroom (shower). There is also a second, main bathroom with a tub and shower.

Water activities include waterskiing, boating, and fishing, where bass, pickerel, pike and perch can be caught. There is a paddleboat with 4 lifejackets and a safety kit. The dock is about 20 ft long. The river gets deep fairly quickly, with the water depth at the end of the dock being 12 feet. There is a private beach located on the property, and a public beach with a playground, just 3 minutes away on Doe Lake.

The River going left goes towards the town of Burk's Falls, and is calm and peaceful. The river going to the right, around the corner and under the bridge goes into Doe Lake. Boats can be launched at Katrine Marine and Doe Lake Beach. In the winter, this cottage is the best place for snowmobilers, as there is a trail across the road from the cottage.
