Cottage Profile This year-round waterfront cottage is located on Sausage Lake in the beautiful Almaquin Highlands, about 60 minutes north of Huntsville. Sausage Lake is a spring fed lake offering good fishing, swimming, and winter snowmobiling. The cottage is very comfortable and relaxing and makes a perfect family vacation choice.

The property has a southerly exposure and about 130 feet of shoreline. The three level 1800 square foot cottage is located on a gentle slope overlooking the lake and features a large sandy beach.

It's just a short walk from the cottage to the lake. At the lake the shoreline is sandy and the water depth increases gradually for easy access to the lake for swimming or just splashing around.

more like a house than a cottage, warm with lots of space, lots of stairs tho so not ideal for older cottagers or a couple of small children. our 12 mth old (not walking) had to be carried up and down a lot). everything provided, couldve just brought our linens and groceries. 25 min to north bay and beautiful town beach and park. own beach(only one on the lake) inc paddle boat,canoe,noodles and dock. thoroughly enjoyed the week!!
