golden lakeThis restored boathouse is adorned with fun decor like the vintage telephone booth out front, nautical-themed stained glass windows in the bathroom and bedroom, and lake-blue coloured appliances.

golden lakeThe boathouse offers pretty much anything you can ask for: toiletries, dishware and cooking supplies, towels, oven, stove, fridge, BBQ, and more. But, if you're looking for a TV for some Netflix and chill, you won't find one. This retreat encourages all guests to unplug and unwind.

Algonquin Park is only an hour's drive away, as is the epic Eagles Nest lookout point. The Airbnb hosts will even share their personal secret spots with you, says the listing.
