A cottage on a remote island has many perks: plenty of privacy, large properties and a true sense of tranquility. Even if you need to build from scratch, this beautiful cottage proves that boat-only access isn’t necessarily a setback. To build this cottage, which is located on Georgian Bay’s Monument Channel, contractors barged in all the materials, from giant Douglas fir beams to the large glass window panes. Designed by Toronto-based firm Core Architects, the cottage is fully self-sufficient too. It produces all its own electricity from solar panels and treats it own wastewater with a bio-filter septic system. On top of the eco-friendly benefits, the cottage features two fireplaces, a sleek kitchen and a swoon-worthy patio. It’s safe to say, we’re ready to get on island time.
