About the property

Cottage getaway for women or couples/ pets

Chicks on the Dock women's RETREAT/ or family Getaway

This beautiful lake front property Newly renovated home and bunkie named ‘LIVE YOUR DASH’ is a place to de-stress and leave your 9-5 life behind. Like me maybe some of your fondest Adult summer memories are spent with girlfriends ‘ON THE DOCK’. You and you’re friends are invited to experience the joy and beauty of a piece of paradise! Spring fed Lake Mc Quaby is quiet with the most glorious sunsets in the North! Winter or summer.

“LIVE YOUR DASH” is very flexible with options tailored to suit your needs.

You can book this weekend for up to 6-8 people. The Bunkie (beside cottage), sleeps 4 with 2 bedrooms with queen beds inside the cottage. Access to a full kitchen and new bathroom with soaker tub and BBQ . FREE WIFI and TV. (PLEASE NOTE this is a very dog friendly space.

Pick veggies from my garden and eggs from my chickens🐣

As a fitness trainer in North Bay (25 minutes away) . I also offer Stand Up Paddle Board instruction and Beginners Rowing training/instruction upon request at time of booking.

North Bay has a Farmers Market (June to September) with many local artists and fresh foods. Many however choose to simply relax on the dock/ deck and enjoy the amenities at ‘LIVE YOUR DASH’ (stand up paddle board, canoe, flotation devices/ swimming/ leisurely walks/NAPS) This is your weekend: you decide. (There are lots of fun artisans in the area) lots of decks and docks to relax. Boat launch close by for big boy toys.

A massage therapist can come out to you if you request it during your booking. Additional fee as required.

Wake up with a morning stretch on the dock with myself, a walk on the private road, your coffee and a book, followed by a beautiful day in the sun or curled up inside. There is a small organic garden and yes I have chickens with the best fresh eggs!!

If you require my services or just a phone call away.

About Aly Kent

I'm a Co-owner and group trainer of a Women's Only fitness Studio in North Bay. I moved up from Niagara 2years ago from Niagara. . I started this business to share this paradise with others. It's a bit of a drive north from Muskoka but totally worth it... and no traffic.

Aly Kent purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Aly Kent chose Nipissing

My grandfather purchase 10 parcels of land after the war away from everyone. I spent all my summers up here on McQuaby Lake. As I brought friends and family up they have nothing but great things to say about this private spring fed lake. We are an hour north from a Huntsville with no traffic lol. It's worth the drive.

What makes this cottage unique

Spring fed lake.

3 beautiful islands

Pick organic vegetables from my garden

Enjoy your morning with my chickens eggs

Plenty of lake for skiing and calm enough for canoeing, kayaking rowing etc.

Powasaan and Noth Bay have a Saturday farmers market. My fitness studio is on the waterfront

across the street of NB farmers market.

Come in for a workout.
