1. What’s the maximum amount of people you can accommodate?
Our main property can comfortably hold 10 people with 4 queen size beds and 2 pullout couches (in 3 different cabins). There may be some wiggle room for additional guests* to stay over depending on the circumstances and pre-arrangement. Please do advise us so we can ensure everyone’s stay is as comfortable as possible.
There may be additional fee depending on the number of extra guests and the situation.

We also have a Yurta off the main compound that is usually rented out separately. It can sleep 2 to 4.

3. What should we bring with us?
Please bring your personal items and consumables – i.e. clothing, toiletries, food, drinks, bug spray, etc.
We will provide a reasonable amount of hand soap, toilet papers, hand drying towels, cleaning supplies and garbage bags.
In the kitchen there are some herbs and spices mix, basic cooking wares (assortment of pots, pans, baking trays), enough kitchenwares for a big family dinner (10+ people).
We include 1/2 cord of firewood for free. Additional wood used will be pro-rated at $130 per cord.
For beddings, linens, body towels please see next question.

4. Should we bring our own linens and towels?

However, feel free to bring your own beddings, linens, and towels. Just let us know when you fill out the rental agreement so we can prepare accordingly.

5. Is the tap water drinkable?
The tap water is completely safe to drink! It’s from a pristine 200 ft / 60 m deep artesian well, regularly tested (soft water). It will have a different (better!) taste than regular chlorinated water.

6. Is there electricity?
We are running on generator and battery system that powers the entire site 24/7. Multiple electronics can be plugged in with no problem.
Since we are off-grid we do ask guests to be mindful of their power consumption. Items with high power usage such as curling iron, coffee maker, heating elements etc. should be turned off when not in use to avoid draining the battery bank.

7. Where can we swim?
Washagami Landing is right beside the water! The water by our dock is about 3-5 ft / 1-1.5 m deep and gradually gets deeper with a rocky bottom. It has a comfortable temperature that’s not too cold. We also have a floating dock around 100 feet into the lake.
Watch out for the occasional boats as you get further into the water: we do advise to stay within 50 feet / 15 meters of the dock for safety. Also note the water is very calm but there will be a very gentle current as the lake drains towards east into Murray Lake.

8. How private is it?
Washagami Landing is very private. We are situated at the tip of a peninsula and surrounded by natural forest. There is no neighbour by land, and the closest cottages are within a bend in the water on the other side (with no line of sight) 650 ft / 200 m away. The only visible structure other than us, the Pine Fall Lodge, is more than 1600 ft / 500 m over the water to the east – and you have to be at the tip of the property to see it.
The only visitors you may get are the occasional fellow cottagers enjoying water / snow sports or fishing on the part of the lake around the property.
In fact, Washagami Landing is so private that you can only get cell phone reception at the very tip of the peninsula! Good way to excuse yourself from the constantly connected modern lives.
(There is still wifi, phone, and satellite TV if you feel the need to re-establish some connection).

9. Do you have internet?
Yes! There is wifi in the Big and Main cottage. They are for light internet uses (email, light web surf) and will not be able handle streaming and downloads. Short YouTube videos, regular Skype are OK.

10. Do you have washer and dryer?
Since we are using our own sceptic system we have to be careful of the kind of grey water we discharge. Washer and dryer will be available for reasonable usage and if you are renting for a week.

11. Do we have to clean up?
Yes, just the reasonable amount.
We expect you to leave the property in good condition, treat it with respect during your stay, and do a reasonable amount of tidying up (dishes cleaned, garbage disposed properly, etc.).
If there is excessive cleaning required by us: i.e. broken glasses, outdoor litters, major furniture moving, etc. we will charge an amount against the refundable security deposit.

12. Are pets allowed?
Yes! And please advise us if you are bringing animals. Understandably we will like you to make sure they behave while indoor and don’t disrupt the local wildlife. Pick up after them as usual (see question 11).
Do note that there are wildlife / plants in the vicinity that may adversely interact with your pets if they venture into the woods. But majority of the time it’ll be like brining them to a park.

13. How about young children?
Washagami Landing is great for a family retreat and reunion! That means the little ones are welcome to come and experience the great Canadian outdoor!
Just practice the usual precaution when they are in the woods, water, and running around the building structures.
However, we do not have high chairs nor cribs; and our sceptic system will not be able to handle wet wipes.

Back to top

14. Are you accessible?
Unfortunately our property is not wheelchair accessible. Several places like washrooms and docks have stairs.

15. Where are the nearest place to buy liquor, groceries, and other things?
There are several towns and cities from 30 minutes to 1 hour away (depending on weather). We will provide you with directions. There are no 24 hrs stores in the vicinity.
