Description:  Come and see Cedar Birch Cottage which is nestled in a premier, west facing peninsula on the best part of Lake Manitou with 2380 feet of shoreline and 4.8 acres.  This cottage has the ultimate level of privacy with the nearest neighbour being, either, over a kilometer away, or across the bay. You will have water views from every part of the cottage, either west, north or south. You can enjoy sunrises from the front porch and, then, gorgeous sunsets from your choice of decks. This is an historical cottage which was built, originally, in 1907 by the Watson Family, and the original charm has been, lovingly, preserved.  There is the original huge stone fireplace going up to a vaulted ceiling, cedar shingled buildings, and multiple, cozy, bunkies. A large modern addition was, tastefully, built with all the convenience of today’s living without losing the beautiful charm of yesteryears.  The main spacious cottage has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms and a laundry area. There is an airtight wood stove that heats efficiently along with a beautiful Elmore stove and propane heaters. The cottage comes with a fridge, stove, washer and dishwasher. There are multiple decks and porches that provide water views in all directions. There are 3 original bunkhouses that are beautifully furnished with 2 beds in each.  One has electricity and its own 2 piece bathroom.  Along with a spacious tool shed and a 3 car garage with 2 barn doors, there is an historical ice hut, one of the few remaining on Manitoulin Island. These ice huts were used 120 years ago before electricity, preserving ice from winter to provide refrigeration in the summer. Own a piece of history. There are 2 Naylor brand docks: one is sheltered for your boats and the other, larger, one is wonderful for swimming, fishing and summer fun. There is excellent bass fishing from the end of the dock. Just cast and reel them in. If you prefer to walk into warm, shallow water, go to the South Beach where the huge,flat, rocks create an easy entry into sun warmed ,shallow water that is great for small children. The properyt is powered by a new and powerful, green, solar system that will meet all your electrical needs without any hydro bills.  The water intake system was updated this Spring to provide easy and clean water from the lake. The propane tank is owned, so no rental fees. Come to Cedar Birch Cottage for the ultimate in complete privacy, luxury, peace, quiet and relaxation. $1,099,000   (1610)
