Twin Pines is a 12 acre property on the southern shore of Mowat Island in the vicinity of Parry Sound.

It is comprised of a spacious, custom designed, two storey, 3 bedroom main cottage, a dry dock boathouse with second storey loft, a sleeping cabin, a large beach protected by an extensive break wall and miles of groomed trails linking throughout the island.

The main cottage has a high vaulted ceiling and two storey floor to ceiling windows overlooking sweeping water views. The open plan main floor features a living/dining area with floor to ceiling wood burning stone fireplace, kitchen with adjoining lounge area and a covered verandah which extends the entire length of the structure. A screened porch at the east end is a wonderful place for al fresco dining.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor, the master which has a 3 piece ensuite and walk in closet and opens directly onto the verandah, and a second bedroom with adjacent 3 piece bath.

The second floor has a large sleeping loft and a catwalk to a large open balcony overlooking the harbour .

The cottage is sited well above the water line and a series of stepped decks, scribed into the smooth rock, take full advantage of the water glorious views. A hot tub is situated on its own deck close to the cottage.

A dry dock boathouse offset from the main cottage offers ample storage for all landscaping and marine equipment and a second floor sleeping loft is a favourite retreat for the young people.

'The Fort' is a small sleeping cabin removed from the main buildings at a somewhat higher elevation which has views through the treetops to the water.

The harbour offers tie up for several boats and a newly constructed breakwall creates a potential new harbour with a large sand beach which is a perfect area for children's play and wading, for launching watercraft and for beach volleyball.

History


Mowat Island was originally home to a grand Georgian Bay hotel operating during the glory days of passenger steamships plying the Great Lakes circa 1890's.

A large pavilion attracted day trippers from Parry Sound for picnics and dancing in the evenings.

Location


Mowat Island is situated off the Big Sound north of Parry Sound harbour, accessible via all the full service marinas in the Parry Sound basin, or a ten minute boat ride from Harrison Bay Marina.

The Big Sound is the gateway to some of the finest cruising and sailing waters in Ontario.

In the environs can be found world class golf courses and fine restaurants and Parry Sound hosts its annual summer music classic 'Festival of the Sound'.
