The space
**Cabin Renovations:
The Wonderful Wanasing Cabin underwent a gorgeous kitchen renovation in April 2021. A brand new kitchencraft kitchen now graces the cabin along with many new features: over the range microwave, silgranit 1.5 sink, wine rack, two new kitchen heaters and a larger fridge (30 inch). The bathroom also underwent an extensive renovation in April 2022 and now features: new vanity, vessel sink, faucet, vinyl plank flooring, elongated toilet, shower light and a 32inch x 32 inch corner shower with gorgeous clear sliding glass doors.
Cabin was lifted and relevelled June 2021, host installed gorgeous white aluminum railing for deck.

The cottage is a perfect spot to get away and is only a one-hour drive from Winnipeg. The living space is open concept and features a wood burning stove along with a 4K 50-inch smart TV, soundbar with sub and Blu-ray/DVD/VHS player with over 200 movies to choose from. The tv unit also holds several classic board games that are sure to be crowd pleasers. There is a 3-piece bathroom, which includes a newly installed stand-up corner shower and towel warmer. A good-sized functional kitchen, a water dispenser (18.9L jug of water will be ready for guests) and dining room table that seats 6. The cabin comes fully equipped with linens (except for bath/beach towels), cookware, dinnerware, sand toys, lawn games (bocce ball and lawn darts), step2 wagon, sports toys (soccer ball, football, frisbee, baseball mitts, nerf ball), and complimentary coffee and tea (food/meals are not provided). Guests will enjoy the comfort of the newly installed ductless air conditioning/heating units. The cabin features a 200sq ft sunroom which has ample seating for the entire family or a large group of friends. The sunroom is a beautiful sanctuary with a desk and comfortable task chair for guest use. The sunroom also has a cabinet stocked full of kids’ toys, books, puzzles, paper for colouring and a good selection of markers/crayons. Within view of the sunroom is an exceptional 300 sq ft playground where kids can let their imaginations run wild. A beautiful outdoor firepit area with a stunning light display, a wide front deck with patio set that seats 8, a children’s picnic table and access to BBQ (propane provided). The cabin has a beautiful rustic charm.

For guests with infants, there is a booster seat, playard/bassinet/changing table with playard mattress, groclock, baby gate, wooden baby gym and electrical outlet covers available upon request. The cabin is not exclusively infant friendly due to the reason that it is not a single level cabin. There is no railing for bedroom platform and host does not have cabinet guards/window guards/table corner guards in place.

**COVID-19 Response:
I would like to inform all guests that I have stepped up my cleaning process and will be utilizing Mr. Clean summer citrus to disinfect and clean all surfaces and Febreeze fabric refresher to eliminate viruses and Clorox disinfecting wipes to sanitize as well. All of this is in addition to changing bedding, kitchen towels and mopping floors. Host has received full covid vaccination and will be personally responsible for cleaning in between all bookings.

**Winter Update:
The Wonderful Wanasing Cabin is now open year round! The sunroom will be closed Nov 1-May 1, 800sqft cabin will be heated (electric baseboard heaters in all rooms and two hardwired forceflow heaters in kitchen area) for guests who rent during winter/cold months. One thick plush blanket is provided for each bed for added comfort. The newest amenity to the cabin is 4 pairs of adult snowshoes available for guest use. One pair is rated up to 150lbs, two pairs are rated up to 200lbs and one pair is rated up to 250lbs. There is also two snow sleds available (each snow sled can have two kids or up to max of 200lbs per sled). Additional amenity added is a boot/glove dryer, can dry up to 4 items. The cabin is incredibly peaceful in winter and so quiet with minimal residents in the area. There is so much to do in the winter, bring your skates and make a rink on the lake when it's safe. Alternatively there is a skating rink at the Victoria Beach Firehall and a kids tobogganing hill. Walk the trails with snowshoes and then come inside to cozy up with the woodstove (preapproval required) or cuddle under the heated blanket with a good book.

Where you’ll be

Traverse Bay, Manitoba, Canada

Wanasing Beach is located east of Victoria Beach and northwest of Albert Beach. Wanasing Beach is not frequented by tourists as its key points of beach access are walk-in only and no parking is permitted on the roads. Which means that only the cabins in the surrounding area will be frequenting the beach. As the cabin is located near the tip of the peninsula/end of highway 59, the cabin experiences less traffic when compared to other parts of Highway 59. I have upgraded all of the main windows to double panes to reduce highway noise (speed limit is 70km/h when approaching the cabin location). For those guests who are light sleepers, I provide complimentary earplugs to improve your stay.
