|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Our 7 housekeeping cottages have been recognized as the most beautiful and well maintained in the area. We have 6 two bedroom units, and 1 three bedroom. All of our cottages have private decks overlooking the lake. Enjoy breathtaking views while drinking your morning coffee. When looking at our rate page, please note that we INCLUDE all of our taxes (13% HST in Ontario).
All the cottages have full bathrooms. There are well equipped kitchens with a full size fridge, stove and microwave, coffee maker, dishes, utensils and all cooking equipment. In each bedroom the comforters, pillows and blankets are provided, but you will need to bring sheets and pillow cases. Each cottage has a picnic table, fire pit, charcoal BBQ if requested and deck chairs. The grounds are dotted with many perennials and annuals gardens for a stunning show. The grass is always lush even in the driest months, thanks to our irrigation system.
With all of our cottage rentals, the use of our paddleboat, kayaks and canoes is complimentary. We also provide motorboat rentals so you can get out and explore the lake.
We supply the hardwood for the indoor fireplaces in the winter season, and have split poplar firewood for sale for the outside fire pits delivered right to your door during the summer.
All cottages are pet free, self catering/housekeeping units. There is one free boat docking slip per cottage. June 15th to Labour Day we rent by the week only (from sat-sat). The rest of the year, we rent on a daily basis with a two night minimum (except during the Christmas holidays which is a 3 night minimum). If there is a last minute cancellation during the summer, we will post it on the availability page, and at that point will rent the cottage on a daily basis.
Recreation & Facilities
There is a myriad of opportunities to enjoy depending on your wishes. Right on site we offer water sports, a beautiful sand beach, playground, volleyball/badminton court and horseshoe pits. There are canoes, kayaks and a paddleboat to explore the lake, which are complimentary with cottage rentals. Paddle out to see one of the many pairs of loons. Come into the Drift Fence Gallery, which showcases wonderful framed prints of the wildlife and landscape in the Madawaska Highlands. We also feature works from other artisans in the area.
Our hiking trails are unsurpassed in beauty and diversity, covering totally unspoiled country. In the winter, these trails are groomed for x-country skiing and snowshoeing. Why not go for a leisurely walk along the network of trails and discover the beauty of The White Pines for yourself.
There are golf courses within a short drive including the championship Calabogie Highlands golf course, churches, shopping, dining, and so much more. For an exciting excursion, there is canoeing down the Madawaska River, a day trip that we highly recommend. The Ottawa River, known as Canada's Whitewater Rafting Capital, is only an hour away, with numerous outfitters to get you out on the raging river.
There are thousands of acres to explore on foot, skis, bike, ATV, snowmobile, snowshoes or boat.
For the trail riders, we now have an area behind our 3 bedroom log cottage that is perfect for keeping horses. There is a stable, and approximately ½ acre of land that is sectioned off with wire and mule string. Bring your portable electric fence unit to connect to the system. Our trails butt up to crown land, and you can travel the most beautiful and rugged country. Come back from a long trail ride, and bring your horses to the beach to cool off. After tucking them away for the night, put your steaks on the grill, grab a drink, and end a perfect day watching the setting sun and listening to the call of the loons.Christmas Week - 4 night Minimum
