Your Ideal Lakefront Cottage Getaway on Nipissing
Come experience this small and friendly resort, hidden on a quiet residential street away from road noise and traffic. Conveniently located right in the City of North Bay (you'd never know it), Torbay Cottage Resort provides the convenience of being within walking distance to restaurants, local entertainment, shopping, trails for walking and biking, skiing and of course snowmobiling. You'll also be able to enjoy superb sunsets, an excellent beach, and very few bugs due to this "in-city" location. Hit the snowmobile trail (NB309) during the winter months (conveniently located right outside your door). These unmatched cottage units are comfortable, modern, clean and fully equipped including gas fireplaces, full kitchens, phone, cable television, and a central hot tub. Your perfect Ontario vacation starts right here!
If you want to be around the lake, but fishing isn't really your cup of tea, grab your swimsuit and head over to one of the many nearby sand beaches. The Township of Nipissing boasts two beautiful (and sandy) public beaches, one on Lake Nipissing and the other on Lake Wolfe. They're both perfect places for laying out and catching a tan, or getting into some water-based shenanigans!
If hiking, photography, or bird watching is your passion, nearby Mashkinonje Provincial Park features more than 35 kilometers of picturesque trail systems. You'll enjoy breathtaking views of the lake, plenty of native flora and fauna, and the company of someone you care about! And the best part is that it's absolutely free!
Lake Nipissing is renowned for its active fish population. If you're searching for "The Big One", head over to the west arm of the lake. It's sheltered enough from high winds to ensure you can fish in all conditions, yet shallow enough that you could practically pluck them out of the water with your bare hands! Get out and catch yourself a walleye or muskie!
Lake Nipissing is the fifth-largest lake in Ontario (excluding the Great Lakes), and is surrounded by natural beauty. This lake is known far and wide for its great fishing, and has over 40 species of fish, including walleye, northern pike, musky and bass. Of course it also has its fair share of beaches, so grab your suit and dive in when the fish aren't biting!
