About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 bath

Maximum Occupancy is 6 people.

Due to allergies we will except NON Shedding Dogs only

This Ottawa Valley Cottage rental has spectacular views from the deck overlooking 420ft lake front, on Round Lake. (note that google maps shows we are on Bonnechere River: this is not correct we are on the lake) The property is wooded with red pine, white pine and poplar. With southwest exposure you have sun all day long and great sunsets.

The cottage has one master bedroom with half bath and a King size bed. A second bedroom with a bunkbed. A third bedroom with a Queen size bed. A breezeway room relaxing with a couch and entertainment unit. A basement bedroom with a futon couch and entertainment area. The cottage is well stocked with games, toys and movies for all ages. Including a Wii. A large deck with table and 8 chairs, 2 lounge chairs and access to the lake front.

The lake access has stone and wooden steps leading to a large swim dock with a swim ladder. The shoreline is rocky but the lake is hard sand with scattered rocks. Visiblity is very high and no weeds. A firepit is located by the edge of the lake for you enjoyment.

We have canoes with life jackets and paddles available for rental at a rate of $ 75.00 each per week.

We have kayaks with lifejackets and paddle available for rental at a rate of $ 50.00 each per week

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. One of the finest fishing lakes in The Ottawa Valley and by most standards the largest and most popular lake in a 60 mile radius. Round Lake was stocked with lake trout in the fall of 2012. Killaloe is the nearest town, eight miles away, and provides a bank, LCBO, grocery store, restaurant and chipstand.

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. Wolf Ridge Golf Course is a 18 hole course within a 15 minute drive from the Cottage.

During the Winter you have access to hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails from your doorstep, as well as ice fishing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

The list of things to do in the area is, frankly, amazing. There is a place where you can get away, but still absorb the Canadian experience. See our other cottage property on Round Lake from the link at the end of the listing.

If you are looking for a place to get away with the family or your significant other, your senses will be satisfied.

Please email me if you have any questions or require additional photos.

About Nancy Gavin

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 2003

Why Nancy Gavin chose Ontario

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. We have recently moved to Pembroke and have made our home on Round Lake available year round. 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 on the deck 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy was very helpful with clear instructions. The cottage was beautiful, with a well equipped kitchen, and gorgeous surroundings. I brought my work colleagues up here for couple of days outside of the city, and we were very happy with the experience. Wonderful place, highly recommend it!

Loved this cottage

  • 5 of 5

We visited over Xmas holidays. The cottage is very comfortable with a great kitchen and two separate living areas. There was lots of snow and it had a beautiful view of the lake. We visited the local parks and Algonquin and there was lots of winter activities to enjoy. Nancy is very helpful and provides lots of great info on the area.

Gorgeous view of fall colour

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for 4 days after Thanksgiving to enjoy the fall colour. Very comfortable cottage with good sleeping and plenty of bathrooms. View was wonderful and it was nice to have a real wood fireplace for chilly mornings. Clean, quiet and peaceful. It has everything you would ever need.

Thanks to Nancy for making it all easy.

Roomy and comfortable cottage with breathtaking veiw.

  • 5 of 5

It was not our first experience of vacation in a cottage but it is definitely the best one. The cottage is very roomy with lots of space for everybody. It gives you comfort of home, everything you might need is there including a dishwasher (which I appreciated a lot), books, games, TV sets, etc. You may not have time to watch TV though because the view is simply breathtaking, the whole Round lake is in front of you and looks beautiful at any time of the day. Starwatching is amazing and we even saw a Aurora Borealis one night.

We highly recommend it. And already planning to go there again next year.
