EXQUISITE LAKE FRONT PROPERTY - 3 HOURS FROM TORONTO

Kingston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 6 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

This exquisite three-story lake-front home is both cozy and spacious. Enjoy an incomparable view as you relax on the deck. Gather in front of the one-of-a-kind, floor-to-ceiling brick and stone fireplace. Randomwood's open floor plan allows a lucky cook to prepare a meal in the spacious, fully equipped kitchen (also with a lake view) and still be part of the social action. You'll see unforgettable sunsets over Fourteen Island Lake from the hand-made dining table, which can seat fourteen.

On the main floor, a high, peaked wood ceiling crowns the living room, where you will also find a fold-out couch should you want to sleep by the fire on a cool night. There are two bedrooms on this floor: a master bedroom with a view of the lake, a balcony and an attached bath, and a second bedroom with double bed and view of the woods. Also on this floor, you'll find a washer and dryer, and a half-bath. The deck runs the full width of the house, and a graceful gazebo provides a perfect place for reading, napping, or just gazing. Relax with a puzzle in the screened porch, and listen to the breeze, and the loons, and the gentle lake sounds.

Upstairs is the other master bedroom, with attached bath. This room boasts a skylight, walk-in closet and balcony, with a breathtaking view of the lake. Also on this floor a kid friendly bedroom with a comfortable twin bed and couch which folds down into another full sized bed. There is a memory foam covering to make this fold-out even more comfortable.

Downstairs, there's a large, carpeted main room, where there's to watch a DVD or Video. You'll find a large selection of movies in the house library. This room is often used as a 'playroom'. (though it can also serve as another bedroom). There's a tent, puzzles, games, toys, even an indoor basketball hoop.

In addition, there are two lake-view bedrooms; one with a Queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds which can be converted into one King-sized bed. There is also a full bath with tub.

Swim from the dock, or take the canoe or kayak around the many lovely islands. Explore the six and a half acres of woods where you can climb the trees or skate on the pond in the winter.

Badminton and volleyball can be played in the open yard. Watch for bald eagles, and the ospreys who return to Fourteen Island year after year.

We live in Los Angeles where we work in the entertainment industry. We love the fruit trees in our garden but desperately miss the seasons. Our house in Canada gives us a chance to have that too. In summer we swim, canoe, lie on the dock and listen to the loons. In the winter we skate on the lake, or on the pond in our woods, cross country ski and drink hot chocolate by the fire. In the fall it's almost impossible to do anything but stare at the amazing colors of the trees ringing` the lake. There is never a bad time to be up at the cottage and never a time when it's easy to leave.

Elaine Aronson purchased this cottage in 1996

Curtis's grandmother was Canadian and he spent many of his summers on Rideau Lake (about 1 1/2 north). I am from Boston and spent all my summers in New England. We wanted our daughter to be able to have a similar experience so when our friends, who had built a house on 14 Island Lake, told us there was a property available, we jumped at the chance to build our own.

Being at the lake gives us a chance to turn off the computer (we only recently installed a phone) and put the 24-hour world on hold. We get to spend real quality time with our friends and family and with each other. We like that it takes some time to get there. Makes it that much more special once you're there.

The house was designed with two master bedrooms because we share it with Lily's godparents. Almost all the handmade furniture as well as the tree house was designed and made by Lily's godfather. We love the communal feeling in our home and most times we're there, the other rooms are filled with friends or family joining us from California, Detroit, New York, Boston or London (to name a few). We love swimming and lying around during the day, then bringing everyone together for a big dinner and the evening activity -- usually a game like Dictionary or Password. Other nights, we pick up one of the many instruments around and have a good old-fashioned sing!

There's always a chance of a late night swim (or skate, depending on the season).

Unlike many lakes in our area, 14 Island Lake is extremely quiet and clean because there is very limited boat launch access - only a two week window at the beginning of the summer. As a result, we do not have day visitors buzzing our lake with noisy jet skis and power boats.

If the weather is bad or you need a change of pace, we like to head in to Kingston for some shopping on Princess street and lunch at Pan Chancho or our favorite Irish Pub the Tir na Nog. At night, you can go to a good old fashioned drive-in movie or take the Kingston Ghost Walk (our daughter Lily's favorite).

Other day trips might include a visit to Ottawa, the Provincial capital, about a 1 1/2 hour drive or making the slightly longer 2 1/2 hour drive to explore Toronto -- a world-class city with fine dining and Museums. You can also save yourself the drive and take the train.

Another choice would be to ferry over to Prince Edward County and visit Picton and the the provincial park. White sandy beaches and dunes provide the perfect backdrop to swimming in the pristine waters of Lake Ontario. Were it not for the lack of salt - you would swear you were swimming in the ocean.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
I came here to reconnect with old friends and refresh after a long harsh winter. This place is amazing and each and every one of my guests would share the same review. This cottage is so well equipped with everything from games to kitchen tools (I love to cook). It is so private and remote - you can see all the stars in the sky even with a fire going! Lake swimming was great, the water temperature was perfect.

Thank you to Elaine for making sure everything was taken care of. I'd come back in a heart beat!!

A wonderful, secluded, quiet, serene location - perfect for my 60th birthday party!

  • 5 of 5
I warned my wife that if she didn't come up with a Special Birthday Party for my 60th, I would hire the job out to foreign workers! She found Randomwood Cottage - and it was perfect! Old friends (some I hadn't seen for 40 years) and family - lots of folks that didn't know each other. The beauty and joy of Randomwood brought us all together. Plenty of room so small groups could break off and do their thing. The decor is so wonderful, like staying in a museum! The ode to a Balderdash Game hanging on the wall (with a climbing axe!) is a classic, though it does not mention the game by name...I'm sure I had it pegged (one of our favorites too!). The 'Beatles' room - with a signed photo of The Marx Brothers, and Marc Bolan - wow, just wow! Though it rained too much for my liking, those fishers amongst us fished and the paddlers paddled. Everyone (ages 2 to 60) had a super-wonderful time - thank you so very much for sharing your home with us! A core group of us want to make this an annual affair :-)

A Fantastic Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented Randomwood for a week this July and had a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful and easily accommodated 13 people. We have been renting cottages for about 9 years in various areas and this lake was the best swimming we have ever had. The setting was very private but it was only about a 15 minute drive into town which was very convenient. I would highly recommend the Randomwood to any family.

We had a wonderful time at your cottage. We found it very peaceful, very charming, and super cozy. We have lots of friends and family in the area, and the cottage had everything one would need, and had lots of room for those big family barbeques and get togethers!! Sunsets were beautiful, as was the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and hope to be back again next summer.

A lake so beautiful your eyes will explode. (note: clean up eye-goop if you want your deposit back)

  • 5 of 5
For a house built upon a sacred Algonquin burial ground, Chateau d'Randomwood is remarkably tranquil and inviting! A custom stone fireplace, rustic wood fixtures, and electronic singing fish make this house unique, not to mention an open living room/dining room/kitchen area (perfect for socializing!) and the cozy basement den. Almost every window offers an inspiring view of the gorgeous lake and surrounding forest, or you can savor this exotic, wild Canadian wilderness from the house's generous wood deck/patio. In addition to its stunning 1020p HD image quality, the lake is also a great place to swim, drift, kayak, or canoe. Its waters are clean, gentle, and 100% prehistoric monster-free (don't believe those two meddling teenagers, everybody knows they Photoshopped the "evidence"). Property listing and photos are very accurate.
