Just a few steps from the water, this private lakeside cottage with a large sand beach and Bunkie is situated on a well-treed lot with a flat terrain – ideal for children as well as grandparents. Sleeps 8. (1 queen, 1 double, 4 singles, 1 ¾ bed and pull-out sofa.) 1 – 4 piece bath.

Pets Welcome


A large sand beach with shallow entry, a dock, canoe, kayak, rowboat and a fire pit. Truly, a unique cottage experience – walk out onto the deck and you’re just a matter of steps from the water’s edge. Southern exposure. Sun on dock till late afternoon. Great sunsets. There’s a public boat launch on the Lake and a marina for all your watercraft needs.

I have been coming to Kennisis Lake all my life. “Kennisis Retreat” is one of the most tranquil places on earth. Waking up, going to sleep to sounds of nature, breathing pure non-polluted air…Whenever a need arises, management is there immediately to fix it.

You can’t have my two weeks of heaven, but there are 50 other weeks to choose from.
