Three Oak Tourist Resort on Gordon Lake
Every cottage is fully equipped and with all utensils and bedding, so all you will have to bring is your food, toilettery, drinking water and a good mood.
In Ontario law requires us that we either had to add chemicals to our clean well water well or to request that our guests bring their own drinkin water. We decided to do the latter. However, our water is suitable for cooking.
A supermarket and three restaurants can be found in Bruce Mines which is only about 15 km or 9 miles away.
Each cottage has a sun deck with lake view. Relax and wait to watch one of the breathtaking sunsets. Enjoy the clean air. Take many pictures here and during your sightseeing trips!

Certainly you also want to be active. Try fishing for walleye, northern pike, small-mouth bass, perch and even Sturgeon. Then clean them in our big fishouse to grill them on one of our BBQ's or freeze them in the big freezer to take home with you.
The mandatory fishing license can be purchased in a close by Bait Shop.
Someone who likes even more action, could have it out on the lake water-skiing.
The area is also ideal for bird and wildlife watching, and the "Trans-Canada Hiking" trail is only minutes away from us. We also supply bikes, canoe and paddle boat for free usage and rent out motorboats.
Our simple 14 ftt fishing boats come with 9.9 hp utboard engines and all mandatory safety equipment. Local people need a valid "Boat Operating Card". Visitors from other countries do not need a license if they do not stay longer than 42 days in Canada.
The fee for using these boats is $ 60.00 per day or $ 200.00 per week. Gasoline is charged extra.
Fall season provides magnificent colors all around and the hunters should not miss the opening of the fall hunting season.
Because of the applicable regulation we only have a small beach - about 68 feet wide - for swimming. It is sandy and you have easy access to the water.
