The Cottage, Trout Lake


I have known this cottage for most of my life, first belonging to my aunts and now my cousins.  It is one of the original summer cottages, now many have been torn down and year round homes built.  It's on Trout Lake, one of two lakes in North Bay.  Trout Lake is the smaller lake and historically was part of the fur trading route in early settlement. 
The city of North Bay obtains drinking water from this source.

There are a number of smaller buildings besides the main cottage on the site.  The small building seen on the right was the original sauna.  There is also a small sleeping cottage, a tool shed and of course the dunny with a moon cut out of the door.
Many lovely memories for our family at this cottage!
