Chevalier Island

Ontario | Canada East/Central

The North Channel of Lake Huron is an underdeveloped, remote passageway connected to an island network that extends through Ontario’s Thousand Islands. Its immense size, 160 nautical miles by 20 nautical miles, nearly qualifies it to be a lake itself. Filled with untamed islands, secluded coastlines, and hidden beaches, the channel contains some of the best freshwater cruising grounds in the world.  

Within this passageway, Chevalier Island strikes the perfect balance between untouched natural beauty and modern convenience. Located 100 kms from Sault Ste. Marie’s International Airport, nestled off the coast near the charming town of Thessalon, the island is 28 acres of gorgeous Canadian luxury. Summer months on Chevalier Island are perfect for freshwater diving in the sheltered bay, beachcombing on the sandy shores, or hiking in the untouched woodlands. The deep waters surrounding the island provide open views to the south and safe harbour for boats and floatplanes to the north.

The jewel of the island is its restored stone house. Developed in the 1920s as the summer home of timber baron J.J. McFadden, the more than 2,000-square-foot home is steeped in history. The fully furnished four bedrooms and three bathrooms are complemented by a chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances and butcher-block countertops. Submarine electrical service has been installed providing all the conveniences of home.

Directly behind the main house is a children’s bunkie, complete with an en suite bathroom and easy access to the private beach. On the south side of the island and a short walk from the main house is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest cottage that is a beautiful property in its own right. Fully furnished with a screened-in front porch, this private oasis is perfect for enjoying the stunning views of Lake Huron and allows guests to feel at home in their own space while visiting this secluded sanctuary. 

The untamed natural seascape, the meticulously renovated structures, and abundant wildlife make Chevalier Island ideal for a private family escape.
