Viva Villa Cottage Resort
Lake Kagawong, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada
Of course the lake is the main attraction! Non-swimmers and toddlers alike will enjoy our gently sloped sand beaches, while parents can keep an easy eye on them relaxing and soaking up the rays in one of our reclining lawn chairs. If you're feeling energetic and relaxing by the beach isn't cutting it for you, there's lots to do at or around Viva Villa. The water temperature is great for a swim from July onwards, and a nearby island serves as a handy destination for a refreshing swim.
To keep the kids busy we have a small playground with a slide, swings and monkey bars. We also have complimentary bikes, paddleboats, canoes and rowboats, a sand badminton/volleyball court, horseshoes pit, a mini-putt, and a newly added- an outdoor sauna, a tuck shop with board games, books and small toys - all free of charge.
If fishing is more your style, Lake Kagawong is famous locally for it's jumbo perch and smallmouth bass. You will also find pickerel, pike and panfish dotting the lake.
After dusk, our bonfire pit is a central gathering point for all of our guests for marshmallow roasting, stargazing and relaxing conversation.
Around the area, there is plenty of sightseeing, Bridal Veil Falls for example is just 3 miles down the road. There is horseback riding, some great hiking at the Cup & Saucer hiking trails just 15 minutes down the road, and there are excellent golf courses in both Gore Bay and Mindemoya, 20 minutes from our central location. Local festivals such as pow-wows, fairs and even a rodeo occur frequently during the summer.
