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 in 2003.
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.
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, 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.

My husband is from Texas and I am from Ottawa. We have two boys 13 and 16. 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.
Nancy Gavin purchased this cottage in 2000
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. 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).
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 overlooking the beach and firepit area. The 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.
We just spent a lovely, restorative week at this beautiful cottage. The pictures really do reflect the beautiful views this cottage affords, from every room of the cottage and the deck. Because our week was so hot, we spent almost all our time on the deck under the umbrella or in the water. So nice to go into the sandy beach/bottom lake - no weeds, no squishy mud! We found the lake to be very quiet with quiet neighbours and not a lot of boat traffic even on a busy long weekend. The cottage itself was very well stocked, making it easy to prepare meals, clean/tidy up etc. We loved having the fire pit and cooked some meals over wood fire on a grill we brought for the purpose (sooo good!). Easy trip into Pembroke or Killaloe for supplies and distractions. Nancy has put together an excellent binder with wealth of ideas for things to do in the area. We would love to spend another vacation here - it has everything we want! Thank you for sharing this lovely place.
Great chalet for a peaceful getaway. Very quiet area which is great. We loved the tranquillity. Whether you are dining indoors or out the view of the lake is spectacular.
You can enjoy swimming right from the cabin or canoe 10 minutes away to a cute little white sand beach.
The place was very clean when we arrived and we thought the welcome binder was a great touch. Many activities within an hours drive. From rafting to hiking to fishing and the caves.
I would definitely recommend it to any couple looking for a quiet getaway. There are 2 corner stores in town and I would definitely recommend the one that is a little further (3 minutes further) much better service and area info.
We can't wait to go back again next year.
The cottage is beautiful. Exactly as described. You could not ask for a more perfect location. Cottage is well equipped and it felt like we were in heaven for a week. Would definitely come back and definitely recommend.
This cottage suited our needs well for a wk of fishing. Plenty of sleeping for the 7 guys. Cottage was right on the water. Beautiful lake !
My husband and I rented Nancy's family cottage for the May long weekend. The location is spectacular and the cottage has a comfortable rustic feel. It had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. Hot plate and BBQ for cooking, big sofa and chairs for lounging. Bed was comfortable. Large windows allowing lots of natural light in and gives you the opportunity to appreciate the surroundings.
We rented the canoe and got out fishing each day and there are small islands where you can go adventuring. Very thankful to have found this little gem.
Such a wonderful little cottage! Small historical log cabin with a fantastic view of the lake. Bbq is provided which is perfect for full days out on the deck. Cottage is directly on a private beach, and gives the impression to be floating on the water.
The owners are lovely to deal with, and provided us with everything we needed.
Only reason we didn't give 5 stars is because the neighbours are very close. A little less private than we had expected. But fortunetly for us, there was no one present during the week of our stay, so in the end, we did get some privacy.
Totally planning on going back next summer!
