On the mid-east coast of Georgian Bay is an island that stands out in size, stature, and ecological significance. The Georgian Bay Land Trust protects 425 acres of aptly named Sandy Island, and this reserve has earned provincial designation as an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). Sandy beach lines its eastern and northern shore, coastal and inland wetlands create extensive habitats for fish and waterfowl, and interior forests contain red oak, beech, and hemlock rarely seen this far north. A three-acre property on the eastern border of the reserve gifts its owners with a private viewing platform over this lush woodland as well as sweeping water views south and east to the Martyr Islands and beyond. It even has its own 450-foot sand beach, perfect for swimming or launching kayaks.

Accentuating this front-row seat to dazzling sunsets and the clear-blue waters of Georgian Bay is a new 1.5 story custom-built three-bedroom, two-bathroom summer house with floor to ceiling windows, cathedral ceilings, and a second-floor loft. Warm woods throughout the airy, light-filled home—from hardwood floors to streamlined maple kitchen cabinetry–complement the natural setting. The airy open-plan kitchen also has quartz countertops and a sizable island. Additional features include a workshop, removable dock, basement, and 128-square-foot storage shed. The property functions off the grid, utilizing solar, a propane backup generator, and airtight wood stove, but cell, satellite, and wi-fi is available.

The Archipelago location means that superb sailing opportunities and boat access to Georgian Bay’s vibrant cottage communities are always an option. Yet, some of Sandy Island’s most special qualities are revealed to nature lovers who turn inland to explore the open rock barrens, forests, and wetland communities of the reserve, where stiff yellow flax blooms in late summer and some 60 types of birds have been identified. Picturesque Nada Lake, the island’s interior lake and wetland complex, is accessible via a relaxed hike through open woods.
