Utopia is More than a Place

Between our float cabin and the rock wall is a protected pool. In the summer, the water is warmed when the sun reflects off the dark rock, making a perfect, natural swimming pool.

And what would a swimming pool be without pool toys. This is our new one. It's called the Poolmate Utopia Lounge. Even though the water is still bone numbing cold, I can float around my pool on Utopia.


We purchased our Utopia online from Overton's for about $70 USD. I love the stablility and the durable nylon cover. Because the lake water is still cold, I've only used it in the chair configuration. If I cross my legs I can float around the pool without getting wet except for a bit of my butt. When summer arrives and the lake water warms, I can flip the padded seat out and use it in the lounge configuration while I float around and read on nice sunny days. And boy, am I'm really looking forward to that! -- Margy

  1. What a wonderful place to live! Forgive my nosiness but what do you do with your sewage? And what type of permits did it take to be able to build such a place?

  6. Your float cabin combined with private pool looks perfectly peaceful... bliss. I am envious!

    I was wondering how you managed to stay warm and dry - you cross your legs! Not sure I'd find that comfy for too long, but the lounger configuration ... oh yeah! I'd go for that!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

  13. How neat to float around without getting cold. It would be good here seeing as the water in the Moray Firth never gets remotely near warm.
