Location: Magnetawan River, Near Burk's Falls, Ontario

In the heart of Burk’s Falls, where the Magnetawan River bends in a wide swath, this comfortable cottage, placed on the shore’s edge, features sandy shores and dock, along with the convenience of town life. Just a short walk or boat ride away, a visitor can discover the covered bridge River Walk with barista and butter tarts. Town conveniences such as restaurants and cinema are just a short walk away. Or by boat, there are literally 40 miles of exploring to do.

River Bend Cottage, a 1600-square-foot cottage is light and airy, with a large unheated sunroom that faces toward the shore. The spacious living room features easy chairs and sofa, big-screen television and DVD player for family gatherings.

The kitchen has many amenities, including a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishware. The cottage is on town water, which makes showering easier. Next to the kitchen is the dining area, featuring dining table and chairs, and leading to the 3-season sun room. The sun room leads to a stone patio with barbeque (on natural gas hook-up), for easy family dinners. Down by the water is a fire pit.

Two of the three bedrooms are on the upper floor are comfortable. The master bedroom has a queen bed with its own ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third bedroom has a bunk bed, double on bottom and single on top. Also in the third bedroom is a queen futon. An additional four-piece bathroom is on the second floor.

River Bend is set up for wheelchair access on the main floor. The master bedroom is located on the main floor while the other two bedrooms are on the upper floor. The lawn slopes gently down to the waterfront, and the entrance to the dock is easy.

The nicely manicured lawn leads to the 80-foot river frontage, where there is a dock from which to swim. The water at the end of the 20-foot dock is about 6 feet deep. A boat of up to 20 feet can be put at the dock. The river, which winds around the Magnetawan and Burk’s Falls region, is quiet and picturesque. A paddleboat is provided to explore the river.

For boaters, this location allows for 40 miles of boating from the cottage.

River Bend is a year-round vacation property. In winter, there is the D123 Snowmobile Trail which is at the end of the driveway and passes through the front of the cottage, as well as trails for long snowy walks.

River Bend is just the place for lazy days of exploring, walking, boating, or just plain relaxing. It’s a place the whole family can enjoy, whatever the age.
