Gunflint Lake Getaway is a cute and cozy cottage only steps from the freshwater Gunflint Lake, which is clean and warm for swimming from May – October. Days at the lake will bring you back to simpler times, reminiscent of summer camp at it’s best!

Relax on the sunny shores of Gunflint Lake and swim in the fresh waters to your heart’s content. This cozy getaway is perfect for a single guest or couple looking for a simple and peaceful place to stay on Cortes Island.


Gunflint Lake Getaway is a one bedroom studio cottage on the edge of Gunflint lake, located along Seaford Road. The cottage is simple and charming, offering cozy accommodations for a single guest or couple looking for a quiet getaway on Cortes Island. Bring your canoe or kayak and paddle across the lake to Hague Lake, as the two are connected via a channel. The sandy, sunny swimming beach on Hague Lake is a fun and enjoyable paddle away through Kw’as Bay Park. You’ll see eagle, deer, heron, red-winged black birds, and possibly resident beaver along your way.

The cottage has a small but well equipped kitchen with min-fridge, stove, and appliances for your cooking needs. Another quiet couple (and their friendly Labradoodle, Ruby) live in the main home on the same property. The two accommodations are close together, but separated from one another by bushes, foliage, and trees.

There is a bathroom with bathtub and shower, and a queen bed with new linens for a peaceful and nurturing night’s sleep. Wake up to the lakeside birds chirping their sweet song. One favorite way to start the morning is a long morning dip in the clean lake waters. The water is delightfully warm in the summer months!

“Private cabin on beautiful Gunflint Lake, with thoughtful touches, such as a well-equipped kitchen and quality linens.”

“Beautiful yard and cozy cabin with great comfy chairs on wonderful deck. Short stroll to lake and swimming. Lots of birds and an owl at night. Comfy bed for a good night’s sleep and wonderful kitchen with lovely eating nook.”

“The Gunflint Cottage is a delightful retreat, only a few steps from the lake, and a small dock from which you can swim, or simply sit and enjoy the peaceful and scenic view. The deck is lovely , with sun and shade as the day progresses. The cottage was well equipped. The bed is very comfortable, and there is a kitchen nook for eating and contemplating the hummingbirds who feast on the flowers outside. The cottage is surrounded by a garden, and the atmosphere is quiet and rural. But it is only a five minute drive to Manson’s Landing market and coop and bakery, and a ten minute drive to a great restaurant in Squirrel Cove. Our host for three days was Craig who was helpful and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone who wants a reasonably priced and relaxed place to stay on Cortes.”

“My wife and I had a wonderful time at the cottage on Gunflint Lake. It was peaceful and relaxing. Our hosts were very accommodating and easy to talk to. We would recommend this cottage on Cortes Island to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.”
