In 1988 Greg Cromwell followed his dream of “owning his own lake” and found a beautiful secluded property in the Far North of Ontario. This is the place Greg’s Great Grand Father Lester loved to visit for annual fishing trips back in the 1940s.

In the summer of 2000, Alison and Greg packed up from city life in Toronto to realize their dream of living off the land. Since moving to Australia, the cabin has continued to be enjoyed by family and friends.

Wilderness Retreat – Cabin on a Private Lake
Stay at Porter Lake. Air BnB Listing

No matter what time of the year, you can count on quality and quiet time back at Porter Lake. The cabin is fully insulated, and our big wood stove does a great job of keeping the place cozy. Don’t be surprised if you have to open a few windows, even when it’s 20 below outside. The cabin is screened in, so no matter what the bugs are doing, you won’t be bugged inside–as long as you keep the doors shut. Water is readily available, and we have a 40-gallon barrel in the loft for gravity feeding–even in the winter. If you are interested in getting away from it all, Porter Lake is the perfect place for you.
