Sandy Haven, Your Canadian Cottage Vacation

Enjoy a boat access, island Cottage getaway on Lake Nipissing at the source of the great and historic French River

Your Cottage is located steps away from Lake Nipissing or a short boat ride from the Famous Upper French River, not exactly fly in, but the same feeling of “remoteness”, with out the expense and a great place to experience “The Cottage”, canoe, kayak, SUP or sit on the dock, watch the birds, read a book, stargaze or sit by the firepit with a bag of marshmallows and a box of chocolate. This is the place to get away from the noise and relax surrounded by the sights and sounds of what it means to be outside while not giving up too many creature comforts.

If you’re here for Ontario fishing you will catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Small & Large Mouth Bass, Perch and Muskie.  They are all here for the catching and some of the best water is within sight!!! Remember it’s not all about the fishing though, that’s just a bonus.
