Sheenboro Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage 1 bedroom 1 bath, sleeps 4
A wonderful cedar log cabin only a few feet from the beach. Views of the islands. Southwest exposure. Sun all day and beautiful sunsets. The cabin was built in the 1930's and has been renovated refinishing all the logs/pine floors and installing new windows, kitchen and bath.
The cabin has a great room with a wall of lake front windows, one bedroom with a lakeview picture window, a cozy kitchen and a bathroom with a shower.
A firepit area is by the lake adjacent to the cabin and surrounded by a perennial garden on one side, the lake and the cabin. It is very private.
Round Lake is three miles by seven miles wide and around 90 feet deep. Water visibility is high, as the lake is fed from springs from adjacent Algonquin Park. Wildlife in the area include brown bear, deer, and all sort of squirrels, chipmunks, otter, beaver and local habitat. The lake has been stocked with Lake Trout the last 2 years.
One of the finest lakes in The Ottawa Valley and by most standards the largest and most popular lake in a 60 mile radius. Killaloe is the nearest town, eight miles away were you can find a bank, grocery store, family restaurant, chip stand, LCBO and pharmacy. Pembroke the nearest larger town is 30 miles away. You are about 3000 feet from Foy Provincial Park which has the nicest sand beach on the lake. It is no charge to enter the park and use the beach and hiking trails, as no camping or overnight is allowed.
Interested in Theatre? Our local group, The Stone fence Theatre has events running Summer and Fall you get live music, theatre, local food, and a true vivid color of The Valley.
Homestead at Wolf Ridge Golf Course is a 18 hole course within a 15 minute drive from the Cottage.
Visit the Wilno Kaszub Heritage Museum and you can enjoy a feast of Polish food at the Wilno Tavern.
The beach is sand and small stones. The lake bottom is hard sand with no weeds. Entry to the lake is gradual and great for young kids.

About Paul Lauderdale
My husband is from Texas and I am from Ottawa. We have two boys 11 and 14. We have two homes on Round Lake. We love to travel with our boys and discover new places. Round Lake is our sanctuary and we enjoy the wonderful sunsets and views from the great room. We look forward to spending our evenings around the firepit making smores, telling stories and singing camp songs. We hope you can create some family memories of your own at our cottage.

Why Paul Lauderdale chose Sheenboro
I grew up spending my summers on Round Lake. My parents retired here and most of my siblings have bought property here as well. We love the community, it is a very eclectic area. Lot of music, art and local talent. Festivals, farmers markets and fishing derbys. People here are friendly with a strong sense of community. Because we live here year round we take the opportunity in the summers to travel with our kids. This is your opportunity to enjoy our cottage and our lake community. We can offer all kinds of suggestions for outings in the area as well as leave a fully stocked binder of brochures and maps for you to plan your week. (or just stay at the cottage and enjoy the lake and sunsets).
What makes this cottage unique
The lake is always changing. Some days it is calm, others a wind comes up and the waves can be like the ocean. I find that we have very few bugs as we are on the windy side of the lake. With South West exposure you can enjoy the sun most of the day and watch the sunset in the evening. The deck is very private and this lake has very few boats so it is quiet. I enjoy a morning walk to Foy Provincial Park with my dog. I walk down the beach and through the hiking trail. (about 1.5 miles round trip). The park is closed so usually it is empty in the mornings. It is a magical place. Our kids are happy to share their movies, games, books and toys with your children. We leave the cottage stocked with books, games, magazines and movies for your enjoyment. The bunky is a great place for the kids to hang out while the parents can enjoy the sanctuary of the log cabin just steps from the lake. Listen to the waves and enjoy a glass of wine.
