de la Morandiere Rock, as the property is known, has been in the same family since it was built in the early 1960s. Perched atop a giant granite boulder, the lodge has beautiful and uninterrupted views of the La Cloche Mountains and Georgian Bay. Located just outside the famous boating town of Killarney, the property offers a uniquely beautiful escape. Its proximity to Killarney allows for access to restaurants and other services. Visitors will stay in the main house on the 60 acre property, which also has three other small cabins owned by the same family. Killarney Provincial Park, which is only 5 km away, allows guests to be completely immersed in nature with trails, lakes, camping grounds, and guided trips.
de la Morandiere's natural beauty is enhanced by its quiet location on an inlet of Georgian Bay. The long dock that extends from the property is the perfect place to view a sunset or to sit and observe the wildlife surrounding the house. The lodge offers a relaxing base camp for day trips in the surrounding area. Outside of the main entrance is a gazebo with a gas grill for outdoor dinners, as well as an original totem pole, commissioned when the house was built. A small screened-in porch also allows for bug-free star gazing at night.
The property sits along 2,000 ft. of shoreline, and canoes are available at the small beach just below the lodge. The La Cloche Mountains also provide endless opportunities for hiking and exploring. Whether you're interested in day hiking or overnight backpacking, there are trails for everyone.
The summer of 2011 will be the first summer that the lodge is open to renters. In the past it has remained private, only used by the family. We hope that you come to love and appreciate this spectacular place as much as we have over the past 50 years.
We are closed from Canadian Thanksgiving till Spring
The house was built in 1957 and has stayed in the same family since. Killarney's location is singularly beautiful.
The property is located on the borders of Killarney Provincial Park, which makes it a great base for day or overnight trips in the region. The bay in front of the house is also a wonderful place to canoe or kayak.
