Welcome to Cecebe Waterways

Cecebe Waterways is a cottagers' association representing over 200 member families who are residents and/or landowners on Lake Cecebe. Spanning the townships of Ryerson and Magnetawan just west of Burk's Falls, Lake Cecebe is part of the Magnetawan River system and is located in beautiful Almaquin Highlands, District of Parry Sound. From providing navigation spars to hosting social events to serving as an information source on the activities of local government, CWA acts as our members' link to the lake no matter where they might live or the time of year. CWA actively promotes aquatic, social, and cultural activities for the benefit of its members and all other residents and land owners on Lake Cecebe and its area waterways.

Watson Island - Cottage for Sale
Watson Island - Cottage for Sale
Unique & Private Island Location

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Located on Lake Cecebe (just north of Huntsville and near the scenic village of Magnetawan) with 40 miles of boating opportunity, there is no property in the area with a better view and sense of awesomeness.Sleeping 14, this property has been constantly upgraded and maintained … and is ready for the 2015 season with a new owner!

The property is over 2 acres of land and 720 feet of frontage. Huge old-growth white pines (so large you can’t put your arms around them), birch and cedars cover the lot.There is no lawn to maintain, though convenient rock-lined paths and newly-constructed wooden steps / walkways make the property accessible.It is “high and dry”, with almost no mosquitos and literally we haven’t had a black fly bite in 15 years. Welcome to “paradise found”.

The cottage itself is highly functional and designed to be low maintenance. The ~1,500 square feet rear split level has three bedrooms, a great bathroom and lots of room for entertaining.Comes fully furnished and “turn key” so you can start entertaining right away.The septic system is newer and there are lots of creature comforts in the place, several BBQs, a washing machine, dishwasher, patio furniture, tons of storage, etc. A high efficiency airtight wood-burning stove supplements the electric baseboard heat for the cooler nights or for those adventurous
winter visits. Designed in a way to maximize the view of the lake, while also being highly functional. The vinyl exterior and metal roof will ensure that you spend time having fun, not painting!

The lot has a small Bunkie, which pushes the total sleeping capacity of the cottage to 14 (or 16 if you use the futon in the living room).There is a well-stocked tool shed on the property, a multi-year supply of split and cured firewood in a large woodshed, and a full-sized resin shed down by the lake for all the water-toys. There is also a homemade lift-system designed to help carry supplies up and down from the dock. Even in paradise, it is nice to have something to help with the lifting!
The deck may be the most incredible feature, as it is designed to showcase the most stunning view of Lake Cecebe. Recently-rebuilt with clear glass rail fencingtobe “child proof”, huge groups can spend the day up here enjoying the best of life – you are on top of the world and sitting above the lake. Alternatively, head down to the large, cribbed dock with 4 slips … constructed in a way that would support a future boat house if you wanted. This cottage is all about the lake.

Everything is included in the price,other than motor boats (optional), and a few small personal effects.

A low-cost cottage to maintain with Hydro at ~$500 and taxes at $1,681.We have owned and invested in the property for 15 years, though for the past 6 have lived in Winnipeg and have only made annual trips. Our employment situation has changed and moving the family back to Toronto is no longer in the realm of possible … so we are reluctantly putting it on the market.
