We were fortunate enough to spend a long weekend in this beautiful lakefront property. We were looking for a location close to Ottawa to host a family reunion, so we rented both houses and were absolutely delighted with our stay.
Debbie and Allan greeted us warmly upon arrival, and gave us a tour of the houses and facilities. The houses were bright, tastefully furnished, and very well-equipped. Debbie had thought of all the little details! We were very happy to make use of the fully-equipped kitchen. The description said to "just bring your groceries", and even then there was a well-stocked pantry for the things we forgot to bring (maple syrup for the pancakes, and paprika for the stuffed peppers!)
The location was absolutely beautiful, and we spent our time on the lake. The lovely seating areas and decks with fire pits made for beautiful evenings roasting s'mores. We did not go out further to explore the area, as we were just happy to soak in the tranquility of the area, and enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake. There was good fishing as well!
The small house is on two levels, and the big house is on three levels, so we got a lot of exercise on the stairs! There are also a lot of stairs down to the lake, with a seating area up top, a deck halfway down (both have fire pits), and a deck just above the dock area. Be careful if it's raining, the stairs can be very slippery when wet.
Last but not least, it was a real pleasure to deal with Debbie. From our first communication with her, she was responsive, helpful, and did not hesitate to answer all our questions and concerns. She and Allan were also there to see us off. We really appreciated their hospitality.
If you are looking for a vacation rental in the Ottawa area, we cannot recommend their place enough. We would love to return here again and again. Thank you very much Debbie and Allan! We really loved our stay!!
