Notes

Located in District 1 of the OFSC snowmobile trail system and just minutes from the cottage are groomed OFSC snowmobile and EOTA ATV trails. ATV’s/snowmobiles are needed in the Winter to access an unlimited number of crown land lakes for ice fishing such as The Quinns, Granite, Mair, Redhorse, Minnow, Mosque, Summit, Wolfe etc. Palmerston Lake is a very deep, clean, clear spring-fed lake and is open for Bass and Lake Trout fishing from May-November only.

Your hosts reside year round on 150 ft. of waterfront property on Palmerston Lake, and share their piece of paradise with the guests of The Pioneer and The Guesthouse cottages. Partake in many of the other outdoor activities available in this area such as X-country skiing, snowshoeing during the winter months and swimming, boating and fishing during the Summer months.

A short hike up to our “Lookout” offers a breathtaking panoramic view of both Palmerston Lake and Canonto Lake. The use of a rowboat, paddleboat and canoe including a few sizes of life jackets and boating safety kit are available. There is a covered boat lift for dry storage of your own boat and the public boat launch is a short distance away.

Blankets and pillows are provided, however you must bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels. We provide you with a few, often forgotten or overlooked items when packing, such as coffee filters, dish soap, T-towels and dish cloths, salt and pepper, clothespins, candles, matches and garbage bags. Please refer to our “Packing List”. Our Township requires recycling at all times. There are other privately owned cottages in the area but no resorts making boat traffic on the lake and traffic noise minimal. We appreciate family guests, couples and nature lovers who just want to experience a relaxing, country getaway as this is what outdoor life in The Land O’ Lakes is all about.
