Close your eyes and open your ears this rare find is your very private sanctuary. A truly unique and secluded Canadian wilderness island, located on scenic Rockaway Lake. The lake is surrounded by crown land, part of which is Dividing Lake Provincial Park (abuts Algonquin Provincial Park). This off-the-grid gem of an island is one of only two properties (at opposite ends) on the entire, 2-mile long lake, thus providing unparalleled privacy and access to thousands of acres of wilderness. The property can be accessed by float plane or by land via the Dagger Lake Access logging road, old logging roads and an ATV trail. Upon arrival at the shore, one can pull themselves by cable on a raft at the narrows (about 20 ft) or take a boat or canoe. This rare find has been in the family since the early 1980's and is an idyllic place to escape, relax to sounds of silence & wildlife that abound in all directions! The camp consists of a vintage log cabin with built-on additions over the decades. (There is an outhouse that is newer and in pretty good shape with a bonus view of the lake!) Enjoy the screened-in porch, dock, views, sunlight, gentle breezes, granite rock shoreline, camp fires under dark/starlit skies and calls of the loon, owl, wolf. In the fall, enjoy the spectacular colours! Winter embraces isolation in the most beautiful forms... Outings include taking in the historic Tall Pines at the north-east end of the lake, which were saved from logging. At the south-west end of the lake, walk the scenic Golden Stair Case trail and take in the waterfalls that empty into Kimball Lake. Once you reach Kimball Lake, have a swim and picnic on the beautiful sand beach. Bass fishing is also a popular activity as is exploring the islands and surrounding forest. There is also a walking trail with swimming spots around the perimeter of the island. Listen to your heart and follow it to Rockway Lake. (id:35448)
