Overview

Ontario Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 BR + Sleep Cabin, 1 Bath - Sleeps 8 - Beachfront, Private, Lovely, 3M to town

A wonderful beach front, southern exposure log cabin nestled among majestic white pine. Watch the mist rise, listen to the loons, and have your coffee on the dock. Canoe or kayak along the historic Mattawa River (Lake Chantplein). Read a book or swim. Roast marshmallows and watch the stars sparkle almost within your reach. Hike to town for a great meal at The Moon or BBQ in the outdoor summer kitchen. It’s up to you. A movie library, WiFi, and lots of board games.

Great romantic setting for couples or plenty of room for the whole family or a group of friends (sleeps up to 8 in 2 bedrooms and a sleep cabin). The main cottage has a great room with a wall of windows overlooking Lake Chantplein (part of the Mattawa River Heritage Waterway). Renovated washroom with shower, pine floors, full kitchen, drilled well, sun porch, wood stove for ambiance, carport, and good cell service.

Come and feel the magic where the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers meet. Located east of North Bay, Ontario, Mattawa Voyageur Country provides endless opportunity for exciting year-round adventures, authentic rural charm, unique places to eat and friendly bilingual hospitality. (visit the Mattawa Voyageur Country web site).

The Town of Mattawa is 3 miles away with grocery stores, pharmacy, hospital and more. Visit the Mattawa and District Museum, 20 Historic Statues, the Clermont Duval Art Gallery and many other small town treasures. Try golfing at the Mattawa Golf ‘n Ski Resort or take a guided nature hike at Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park. Or, simply enjoy the cottage - it’s your holiday!

Why Tina chose Ontario

We've loved this log cottage for years and when the owners decided to sell their much loved summer home, we were blessed to buy it for our children. It's still a few years away before they will use it, so we are renting it out so that it will still be enjoyed. One year, we spent Christmas day there as an ongoing tradition and we can't imagine a more perfect setting. What a treat! A wonderful family occasion with a roaring fire, board games, laughs and hot chocolate!

What makes this cottage unique

Nature at her best, white majestic pines, clean lake/river, privacy yet only 3 miles from town, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, peace & quiet, marshmallow roast, BBQ, history, museum, art gallery, hiking trails, good & inexpensive golf. And we could go on!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the cottage. First thing we noticed was the view. Amazing! The Cottage is beautifully nestled among some very large pine trees on the shore of the Mattawa River and is private. There were so many things to do in and around the cottage. We explored the area with the use of the canoe and kayaks, fished off the dock and hiked through the Samuel de Champlain Prov. Park. The cottage itself had a lot to offer. There are a few board games, books and Netflix available for those rainy days. And boy did it RAIN!

Regardless of the weather, we enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean and had plenty of amenities. Lots of clean towels as well as beach towels. The kitchen was well equipped (even had a Keurig!). The beds were comfortable too. We even had a few laughs watching each other try to climb onto and off of the bunk beds. :-) We were very appreciative of the "Welcome Basket". It contained a binder with all the info about the cottage and the surrounding area as well as other goodies. I would definitely recommend this property.

Thank you for having us! Jen & Jo

Great vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic, relaxing time at this cottage. The amenities had, for us, the right mix of rustic and modern. The cabin had a wonderful view of the lake/river, the kayaks and canoes were great, as was swimming, fishing, and relaxing under the shade trees and sunning on the dock/raft. Had a great day trip to Eau Claire Gorge too (not to be missed). Highly recommended.

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a beautifully maintained home that our family of 4 enjoyed over a 3 day weekend getaway! The location was perfect and provided us with adequate privacy to enjoy Mattawa's beautiful lakefront and surroundings, yet close enough that we were easily able to get to main street within 5 minutes! The cottage was clean, spacious and had a range of available amenities and provisions that a family would need. We were quite impressed by the thoughtfulness of the welcome basket, availability of towels, warm comforters, and even the prepared fire pit! We will definitely be back again - and avoid bug season!

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage! We felt so welcomed - a fire ready to be lit, coffee and tea for our first morning, lovely bedding and towels, very clean. We found lots of trails to walk on and a waterfall and a hike up to Duck Lake. The view of the river from the cottage windows was gorgeous.
