Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great weekend at this wonderful place in Calabogie! We were a group of 11 + Frankie the Frenchie. Debbie and Allan were very welcoming and very personable. There is plenty of space for everyone to hang out and relax. There is plenty to do around the house and the property. While we visited in late September, it was so beautiful outside! Some brave souls even went for a late September polar bear dip in the lake! The dock and waterfront is picturesque! The beds were all comfortable and clean. Debbie and Allan also made sure to show us where everything was and made sure we knew they were reachable during our stay. We are hoping to come back in the future. A great time was truly had by all! All the best to you, Debbie and Allan!

Amazing time, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 13 people renting out both cottages) for the week. We had high hopes based on the other reviews, and we were not disappointed!

It truly is a property that is even better in person, and is ideal for a group looking to hang out and relax. Debbie and Allan have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable, and we certainly appreciated it. Comfortable beds, entertainment (foosball, pool table), good waterfront, and air conditioning (heaven sent) are among a huge list of amenities available.

Debbie & Allan - it was wonderful to meet you and thank you again. As someone else mentioned, lightning fast email responses.

A delightful stay on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Beautiful, private and very comfortable lake house with all the conveniences of home.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot wait to return in the summer again (to swim, kayak, canoe and fish) and also in the winter to ski! The autumn would be gorgeous with the hiking trails and fall colours, too.
