Situated on a point on a large lot, the cottage offers privacy and seclusion. No neighbours are visible. The far side of the lake is completely uninhabited.. The lake itself is wonderful for swimming - either off the dock or the flat rocks, boating and fishing. 700 feet flat rock shoreline. There is also a sand beach located at the end of the lake. Boat Launch nearby on lake. Large separate bright pine panelled "sunroom" overlooking the lake. We have maintained the natural rustic atmosphere of an orginal Canadian log cottage nestled amongst the red pine and birch trees. Efforts to modernize have been kept to a minimum. Yes, we have hot and cold running water, and a basic bathroom cum utility room with sink, toilet and shower. And yes the kitchen has all the appliances except a dishwasher. A wood stove provides all the warm comfort necessary for the cooler shoulder seasons. However, we have resisted the trend to bring in TV, internet, etc in order to preserve the serenity of the property and allow our guests to reconnect with the natural surroundings. Windmill Point is approximately a 1/2 hour drive from the eastern entrance to Algonquin Park. The Park has a wide range of walking and hiking possibilities, an outdoor Logging Museum, and Visitors Interpretive Centre and Gallery, all worth a visit. The wolf howling experience, which is held on selected evenings generally in August, is not to be missed. Every season has its special attractions - not least of all autumn. The autumn period with its spectacular colours, and cool, crisp clear days is a paricularly good time to experience MacKenzie Lake and Windmill Point Cottage.

Any cancellation must be clearly communicated to and confirmed by Debbie at Windrovers as soon as possible. We can then try our best to re-rent the cottage for that period.
If you cancel 45 days or more before the rental period, we will refund you in full, less the 15% booking charge. If you cancel less than 45 days before, and we cannot re-rent the cottage for the reserved period, we will have to keep your reservation deposit. If part of the period is re-rented, you will get that part of your deposit returned minus the booking charge. Two weeks in advance, the whole of the deposits are forfeited.
The rent is the amount advertised. In a few cases, HST must be added. This is noted under taxes and fees in the property listings.
There will be a 4% administration charge added to the rent.
The security deposit is 50% of the rent not exceeding $1000, paid by certified cheque or money order. This is due 2 weeks before the start of your holiday. This deposit will not be cashed and will be returned to you as soon as all bills are settled – normally within a month after your rental period ends.
The security deposit will be used to pay any additional bills incurred during your cottage stay, eg., long distance phone; or to offset repair of extraordinary damage, eg., a broken window. If the cottage is not left as found, as much as a 10% of the rent cleaning charge may be taken form the Security Deposit. Any bills will be fully revealed and discussed with you in the week following the rental.
In addition, any bills not covered by the security deposit will be billed to you.
The reservation deposit is 30% of the rent, which includes a 15% nonrefundable booking charge, and has to be received within a week of making your reservation to ensure the cottage is held for you.
