The Lodge at McCaskill Island, built in 1918, is a traditional lodge which has been lovingly restored to its original beauty in the Lake Country of South Eastern Ontario, Canada.
The Island offers peace and privacy on a 2½ acre island retreat with 330' of shoreline. Minutes to the mainland by paddle or oar, less by motor.
The all season porch provides panoramic views of Newboro Lake and the many animals and birds native to the area.
Wildlife seen from the porch include deer, mink, loons, beaver, porcupines, muskrat, osprey and a great blue heron nicknamed George ...
From the original wainscot walls and ceiling of the great room to the detached kitchen separated from the main building by the back porch, The Lodge at McCaskill Island is a vacation site with the charm of early 20th century lake country living.
The 24' by 26" great room with 12' high ceilings, is the perfect place for friends and family to congregate. Whether planning a days outing, recounting the days adventures, or gathering to spend time together, this room offers comfort and entertainment.
The seating area for conversation, reading or just plain loafing (when not loafing in the hammock on the front lawn, overlooking the lake) is grouped around the wood stove which provides comfort on cool mornings and evenings.
The games area includes the pool table, the dart board and the games cupboard which contains cards, board games (Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly) and jigsaw puzzles. Another long standing lake tradition is honored here; describing the size of the fish caught.
The front Porch overlooking the lake has windows with screens all the way around making it airy in warm weather and comfortable in cool.
Step out from the front bedrooms onto the porch with breakfast at the informal kitchen style tables and watch the lake come awake. Coffee and the sounds of a new day go together well.
The beauty and comfort of the wicker settee and chairs beckon you to while away a languid afternoon or watch another spectacular sunset on Newboro Lake.
