Copper Cove

Located on a quiet bay of one of Parry Sound’s largest lakes, Manitouwabing Lake, you have the access to great boating and fishing without the boat traffic passing by your dock all day.

This four-season gem boasts over 2125 square feet of finished living space so your group can hang out together or can find separate spaces to enjoy quiet time.  The main floor is open concept kitchen, dining and living room spaces with vaulted ceilings and large windows for beautiful lake views. There are two private sundecks – off the kitchen for barbequing and outdoor dining, and off the two main bedrooms for sunbathing and stargazing. Or just enjoying that morning cup of coffee and your favourite book. Both decks have glass rails so your view of the lake is unobstructed. The basement is truly built for family entertainment with a large flat screen TV, satellite (with all your favourite sports and movie channels!), bar and pool table area, and air hockey too!  There is also a propane fireplace to keep you warm on those cooler nights.  The cottage is completed with a beautiful screened in “Muskoka Room”; equipped with comfy furniture to enjoy those rainy days or buggy evenings.

With western exposure, the large dock is bathed in sunlight all afternoon. There is a clear shallow entry for new swimmers and deeper water off the dock for diving. Fishing is fantastic right off the dock, or take one of the boats out to find your own new fishing hole! Only 7 minutes to the hamlet of McKellar where you can find all the amenities you need – groceries, LCBO, fishing tackle/bait. Other adventures close by are the Ridge at Manitou Golf course, also only 7 minutes away. Looking for more activities? How about Bearclaw ATVing, Princess Island Queen Cruise, nature trails, the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame, and all less than a 30 minute drive!

Pets are welcome at Copper Cove!

Thank you for providing a clean and well organized place to enjoy our stay.  We appreciated the design of the house especially with lots of windows and walkout to terrace to enjoy the lake view, not to mention skylights.  We truly appreciated your welcome gesture with greeting card and a bottle of wine, but unfortunately Muslims don't drink.  Therefore, we are returning the bottle with thanks.  We understand this gesture was with good intentions.  Thank you for your hospitality and for taking care of the details such as plenty of towels, utensils, TV's games, including pool table.

Thanks for the great memories we will always have!  Very nice dock with great water activities.  The kids spent the whole week down there in the water and in the kayaks.    A great place to stay and a great location with its proximity to town.

Thanks again,

We had an amazing time decompressing here as a group.  Sitting on the dock, going out on the pedal boat, and just generally having a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere was exactly what we needed.  Thanks for facilitating our great memories.

We, with our daughter and 3 grandsons, 15, 13 and 8, had a wonderful time in your well-equipped, clean, spacious cottage.  We were caught in an ice storm and temperature fluctuations between -19 degrees and +6 degrees, but had a great time anyway.  Definitely would like to come back.  Suggest you have sand available as it was an ice rink from the front steps out on one morning and sand would have been very helpful.

Warm regards

Jane & Michael Moore

P.S.  Loved the welcoming bottle of wine and ample toilet paper!  In our experience, that is uncommon!


December 22nd to 26th, 2018

Thank you for providing the Coziest, Warmest and Greatest place for us to celebrate our Christmas at.  It was truly a pleasure to stay here.  The games 

in the basement really kept our family occupied all along.   The place was very clean and really felt like home.  We are definitely thinking of coming back in the summer and enjoy the warm weather and the nice view both seasons.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours

Thank you,

Copper Cove's location and views were amazing.  The stars from the dock were like nothing we had ever seen.  The glass water made for sitting by the dock so enjoyable.  We golfed a round at the ridge at Manitou and while the conditions were not ideal it was beautiful!  Highly recommend golfing there or just going for lunch.  We made many good memories here.  Thanks for having us.

We all LOVED our week here at Copper Cove!!  Thank you SO much for sharing this piece of Muskoka heaven!  All 3 generations had a wonderful time together - swimming, boating, fishing (caught pike!)  and games for the rainy days.  We found McKellar market on Saturday and enjoyed live music, crafts and lunch that included - beef on a bun,  corn on the cob, cake and a drink - all for $5.00 - Best deal in Muskoka!

Thanks again, we hope to return!

Thank you!  We had a GREAT week!

Thanks for the wine!

The FIRST rule of fishing is NEVER tell anyone about the BEST fishing spots.  We have nothing else to say...

Two days left to go in our wonderful stay at Copper Cove.  Kids and grandkids were here for the first three days and now sisters for the last four.  The little kids had an absolute ball!  In the water every day and enjoyed air hockey every night.  Thanks for the bottle of wine - a very nice touch!  The cottage is very comfortable with lots of awesome spaces to spread out or gather together.  We're enjoying lots of deck time and beautiful weather.

Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!

Dear Danielle, Joe, Ashton & Carter,

We had a wonderful week at your cottage!  The weather was perfect.  Your lake is gorgeous, the property is scenic.  My 23-year-old daughter Emma and I had a truly relaxing holiday away from work and the hectic pace of Toronto.  My sister Connie and her mother-in-law Dorothy joined us on the weekend and we all felt spoiled for Mother's Day enjoying everything you offered at the cottage.  We paddle-boated, soaked up the sun, BBQ'd, played pool, air hockey, Battleship and relaxed in the hot tub!  We did it all!

Thank you!

We enjoyed a great Family day weekend at your cottage.  The weather was absolutely perfect!  We explored the area on our snowmobiles, met the neighbors who were having an ice fishing derby & enjoyed a few drinks out on the frozen lake!

Such a great stay at Copper Cove!

Thanks so much!

We had such a great time in your beautiful cottage.  It is so spacious and clean.  Owner even went as far as welcoming us with a bottle of wine and welcome card which were there for us on the table upon our arrival.  Thank you very much.  Only downside was that fireplace was not working and we were looking forward to sit around fire place and share some stories.  But we do understand and still enjoyed everything starting from games, hot tub and outdoors.  At night when we went to bed, outside was autumn and in the morning when we got up it was a winter wonderland.  Beautiful, white snow covered trees and ground.  Even our husky was beyond excited.  Once again, thank you very much for letting us stay in your cottage.  Hopefully we can come back in summer and use the opportunity to run down the hill and jump in the lake.

Thank you very much for letting us stay!  We are a group of women that have known each other since childhood.  This was a great place to catch up, relax, and create lasting memories.  It was record low temperatures for November and we had the chance to see the lake freeze over in one night!  Pretty amazing.  We also spent time outside, despite the cold, and we watched a woodpecker in the tree right in the backyard!  There was never a shortage of things to do.  It was everything we could have asked for in a winter cottage vacation.

Thank You So Much!

The first thing these grown men did in our group when arriving was running down the hill like little children.  We all jumped in the lake and this place reminds us all when we were kids going "up north" for the weekend.  We needed a good home to rest and this place was magical.  I hope to return with my kids and run down the hill with them when I return.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your lovely cottage!  Great fishing right from the dock.  Caught two pickerel, 23" and 27" the first night!  Caught some pike throughout the week as well.  Great place to relax and lots to do together as a family.  Again thanks so much for a great holiday!

What a great week we had it was the week when time just stood still.  There were no worries, no rush to be anywhere and not a care in the world.   The quiet and peaceful setting provided many moments for self reflection.... or just napping on the dock  zzz!   Our kids enjoyed all the activities inside and out, we were glad that they did not discover Mine Craft until Wednesday, otherwise they would not have enjoyed the lake as much as they did. 

We became explorers one morning and decided to set foot on "Key Island" that's what we named it, when the water is like glass, the rock's mirror image in the water creates the shape of a key.   However our time was spent my most favourite was watching the shooting stars from the dock.

We had a lovely week long vacation at your cottage.  It was very clean with tons of room inside and outside for our children to play.  The games area in the basement provided for many family competitions  :)  The kids enjoyed jumping and fishing in the water from the spacious dock.   We even got to hear an owl hooting his good-bye to us on our last night!

Thank-you for sharing your cottage with us.

Our experience at this cottage was amazing.  Only downfall was the shortage of water.  The cottage however was very clean and spacious, especially for outdoor activities!  We hope to come back to this cottage for future family outings!



Owner's response - Thank you for drawing our attention to the water pressure. We have replaced the water filters which has everything back up and running at normal pressures!

About the Owners

We are Joe and Danielle. We both grew up spending summers at cottages and camping, but this is the first cottage property we've owned. We are beyond excited to share this beautiful cottage with Joe's boys, Carter and Ashton, as well as all of our extended family. We are avid fishers, and we all enjoy a quiet paddle on the lake exploring new areas. There's nothing better than finishing a day with a nice campfire, some marshmallows, and all those stars you just can't see in the city. The natural wildlife from the loons, cranes and deer, are sure to create lasting memories for young and old alike. We hope everyone has as much fun and enjoyment at our cottage as we do. Thank you for signing our guest book, we look forward to reading about your fun memories.
