William De Laat and Donna Welch purchased this House in 2009
Why William De Laat and Donna Welch chose South Frontenac
We chose this cottage property because it is situated on a private point with 270 degrees of waterfront. Devil lake is one of the most sought after lakes in Eastern Ontario. The lake is quiet, private and pristine; with extremely clean and deep water. The west dock (it has two) overlooks Frontenac Provincial Park.
What makes this House unique
Morning sunshine on the east dock and sunsets on the west dock are equally fantastic. Very little motorized boat traffic. Clean, weedless water. Great privacy and views. Traditional "cottage" feel, but with all the modern conveniences.

Shared this space with two other couples and it is absolutely stunning! Water is perfect off the dock - deep for jumping off, perfect temperature in late august. The lake itself is gorgeous. We rented a pontoon boat from the nearby marina and were able to explore - fishing was also great!
The house itself is beautiful. Perfect balance of luxury and cottage vibe. It's clear the owners really love and take care of it. Donna and Bill were conscientious hosts who checked in and cared about our stay. Overall definitely a 5 star rental and experience - thanks Donna and Bill!
Beautiful and Fun!
The lake is gorgeous, and there's plenty to do! There's kayaks, canoes and fishing poles available for anyone to use. Not to mention the jumping rocks! The house is very comfortable and homey. Bill and Donna are wonderful people and are very easy to connect with. The Autumn colors were definitely a sight to see. Overall a great place to stay!
What an amazing place!
From the moment we drove into the property we knew we made a great choice in booking this cottage. What better way to spend a vacation then on a private point on a spectacular lake. Donna and Bill were fantastic to communicate with and you could tell they really wanted us to have a great experience.
The house was incredible. Completely updated with all the modern amenities. From the gourmet kitchen to the walk-in shower this house had everything we could want.
The things we liked most about the house was the front porch with 270 degree views of the lake (the benefits of being on a point), the master bedroom in a really neat turret, the massive kitchen island, etc.
What made this rental better than any other we have gone to in the past was the amenities, privacy, and deep and clean water.
We can't wait to be back next year!
A Piece Of Heaven!
We had a wonderful time at Devil Lake and this home is absolutely beautiful. The lake is so clean and warm, and the surrounding forests are magnificent. The sound of loons. The fresh air. The glorious sunsets. This property is wonderful. The beds are so comfy. The kitchen so spacious and modern. Fabulous veranda and swim dock. Our favourite vacation destination in the world!

The only cottage!
I have been to different vacation places, but this one is entirely different and unique. A lot of amazing features about this cottage that my family, kids, and friends enjoy during our stay. The location is great with excellent privacy. It contains four bedrooms one of them is outside the main house by few steps if you want to remain in a quite place away from children but it difficult to go in/out during night because of outside mosquitos. The cottage is very clean and well-maintained and beautifully decorated! It is a piece of art. We met the owners Donna and Bill on arrival, and they welcome us and take us for a tour of the cottage facilities. Definitely, I will think of this cottage for next time, and I am highly recommending it to my friends and relatives. A lot of activities can be enjoyed here: I enjoyed the view in the and the location, BBQ, indoor spacious sitting and dining area, outdoor patio, deck, fishing with the kids. Two Kayaks, Canoe are available in the cottage properties, and you can rent more from the nearby boating area.
Exquisite Lake Home!
Having spent a forty year career that took me to some of the most beautiful places on earth, I truly believed I had seen it all. As we drove up the quaint, private driveway approaching the DeLaat~Welch lake home, we found ourselves utterly speechless! We immediately felt that we had stepped back into a vacation setting in a lake lodge of the 1920's! The home is situated at the end of a very private peninsula, surrounded on three sides by one of the most pristine lakes in Canada! The owners have exquisitely remodeled it with extreme care taken to retain its original, authentic, old world charm. You can not believe the feeling of privacy and contentment that immediately envelopes you. The beautiful dock beckons you to lounge or swim, and in no time you feel the charm and relaxation of this magical place taking hold of you. Stress melts away with the sound of the waves lapping the shore and the gentle breeze wafting through the pines. The sunsets will leave you awestruck!
If you do want to drive around a bit, the delightfully quaint, little town of Westport also hearkens to a time long ago. You'll find wonderful food, shopping and the town's people are so friendly, you will soon feel like you have known them a long time.
I guarantee you will be in for a treat of a lifetime if you choose to vacation in this home!
