This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the few remaining undeveloped Islands in the unique Pointe au Baril cottage vicinity.

The entire 7 acre Island (surveyed as 6.9 acres), is situated at the northern end of a small bay near Niweme. It is well sheltered from stormy weather, and away from the main Station Channel. Its predominant East-West orientation provides for ample southern exposure with views down the bay. It has remained in the family for over a third of a century since it was purchased in the end of the last century.

It is well forested with a good mix of trees and features elevated granite locations suitable for building. At almost 7 acres it allows for a larger main structure, bunkies, out-building, and would make for an ideal isolated family compound. Power is already conveniently provided by submarine cable from the mainland with two locations on the Island. The extensive shoreline with its numerous bays and inlets are ideal for moorings and swimming. The deep bay on the south side is ideal for all watercraft including full keel sailboats, and has a small sandy beach. The area is noted for its good fishing opportunities.

The town of Pointe au Baril Station has a number of full service marinas within a 10 minute boat ride to the Island. Some marinas also provide water taxi service. The community sports a small grocery store, Home Hardware, Liquor store, Nursing Station with ambulance servide, Library, Community Centre, and a Transfer Station. Pointe au Baril Station is approximately 2.5 hours from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Toronto International Airport by a predominantly multi-lane highway.

An easy 20 minute boat ride through protected winding channels brings you to the historic Ojibway Club (1906), a former summer time hotel. It is the centre of the local cottage community which offers a children's camp, tennis, grocery store, fuel, dining, and socializing.
