Sunset Point is a favourite destination for its perfect location across from the Old Minaki Lodge on the north point of the Winnipeg River Channel. With its' functional and well-designed Cottages, surrounded by tall timber and pristine lakes and rivers, Sunset Point offers a unique outdoor experience or a quiet relaxing getaway. Established across the river from the township of Minaki, Sunset Point was constructed in 1937 as one of the first properties to be developed in the northwest Canadian Shield. Currently there are five modern comfortable cottages all with convenient boat access. Each country cottage faces west with a lakefront view to capture every spectacular sunset illuminating the rippling waters that reflect the beauty of Sunset Country. On many hot summer days you will enjoy the unique soothing effect of a cool mid-afternoon breeze which gently wisps across the channel.
Sunset Point is recognized as a favorite gateway to the outdoors for fishing enthusiasts, sportsmen, boaters, adventurers, hikers, naturalists, bird watchers and water worshipers. Whatever your connection to nature, you will find it here. Quiet… relaxing… out of the way... accessible by a five minute boat-in from the township of Minaki and its many amenities.
If this is your first foray into Sunset Country, it won’t be your last. Many of our vacationers return every year for new thrills and adventures in Northwest Ontario's natural wilderness. Your hosts, the Akins/Hunter family look forward to having you as their guests.
On the Point you are guaranteed a front row seat to experience the region's most spectacular sunsets. This alone is worth the price of admission.
