Is a weekend getaway to a lakefront on your bucket list? Stay here, and you can check it off. Vacation chalets don’t get better than this. Lakefront Cassillo comes with cathedral ceilings, a private setting, a sandy beach, a hot tub, a sauna, a private setting, a cozy wood chateau, and canoes.

We provide all equipment you need for cooking/baking, some spices, salt and pepper and cleaning supplies such as paper towel, toilet paper, kitchen and hand towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, dish soap, hand soap, and propane for the BBQ.

Your comfort is our priority, we provide comforters and pillows. Sheets and bath towels must be brought, or we can order this for $25/bed (Flat/fitted/pillowcase/bath towel) through our supplier. We provide one bag of wood for your stay. It will be $15/bag if you would like additional bags.

Our hot tub can sometimes look a little green due to the Iron in the well water. It is fully cleaned between guests, but the Iron can change the water from clear to green as it reacts to the other chemicals used. This can be a tad off-putting, but you can be sure the hot tub is cleaned and balanced between guests. If this happens, let us know, and we can direct you to a chemical in storage that we use that temporarily helps keep it clear.

This cottage does NOT have central AC. We have a split unit above the main floor stairs and a window unit in the games room. These help to keep the areas cool, but there is no AC in the bedrooms. We do have ceiling fans and a good breeze. 

None of our guests have ever said the bedrooms were to hot.

This location is located in Minden/Algonquin. It is a nature enthusiast paradise. With hiking trails at every turn, and ATV trails throughout the area. There is a small supermarket about 15 minutes away and larger ones 30 minutes away.

“This was our second time staying in one of Bryan’s cottage, and we had a lovely time! He’s a great host with immaculate properties and communication was quick and easy.
This one had a very nice loft and so many amenities, such as the hot tub, bbq, games room and so much more! The fire pit was definitely a highlight! Will definitely visit again!”


“A beautiful place to spend some quality family time over the NY holiday. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed to cook a great meal. The hot tub and sauna were fabulous too! We hope to come and visit again in the summer to enjoy the BBQ, fire pit and terrace. Thank you for a perfect place to make family memories.”
