Renovated, charming little cabin (400+sqft) backing onto the woods, across from McKellar Lake. Awesome 400 sqft decking! Open concept, sleeping loft, new bathroom (eco friendly compost toilet), skylight, amazing wood stove, hot tub and firepit. Ideal for 2 people. Large shared dock with deep water includes use of canoe. Short walk to McKellar (LCBO, Beer Store,Chip Truck, Sat. Farmers Market). 2.5 hrs from Toronto & short drive to Ridge at Manitou Golf. We are pet friendly. Catering available.

The space
We have recently connected with a new local Catering Company called "Bobby's Soups". With 24 hours notice you can have incredible charcuterie boards, cheese boards, mains (lasagna, shepherds pie, mac & cheese, cabbage rolls and more) and hearty, homemade soups delivered straight to the cabin. Photo Menu coming soon. We can provide additional info and how to order upon booking.


As an added precaution due to Covid-19, we are now asking all guests to bring their own sheets and towels. This will enable us to provide an extremely safe environment for you, us and future guests as well. Please wear masks and practice social distancing.

Just because it's called "The Love Shack" doesn't mean it's not absolutely perfect for a friend getaway! And it is an ideal place to spend your honeymoon, mini-moon or anniversary as it is an intimate cabin! Perfect for 2 people.

Please bring your own sheets (1 queen, and two twin beds in the sleeping loft that can be pushed together for a king bed), towels, drinking water and firewood and take your garbage with you upon check-out. We provide pillows and plenty of blankets. Please note that the sleeping loft is low ceilinged but suitable for sleeping! (an adult cannot stand in the loft).

We are artistic types who absolutely love to travel! We've crossed a lot off of our bucket list so far (Ireland, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and The Caribbean - most notably St. Maarten!!} The Amalfi Coast and Greece are next on the list! We have two pups we adore and spoil like crazy, which is why our properties are pet friendly! They are family too! We've spent the past 3 years restoring/renovating a little cabin across from McKellar Lake, just east of Parry Sound (which is now on Airbnb as The Love Shack} Norm did all of the work himself and we poured so much of our heart and soul into this place it just had to be called The Love Shack! We truly hope all of our guests at Golfer's Paradise and The Love Shack have a marvelous, relaxing stay! https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/17289171?adults=0&children=0&infants=0&toddlers=0
