The area is known for its crystal clear lakes on the Rideau waterway system which recently celebrated the 175th anniversary of the opening of the Rideau Canal, North America's oldest continuously operating waterway. The Rideau waterway system is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and stretches from Ottawa to Kingston.

There are 3 cottages, sleeps 9, one for living and entertaining and two cottages for sleeping. A two acre, beautiful, treed site has a rock garden and outdoor patio for barbequing, relaxing and bird watching. Of the five bedrooms: one bedroom has a cathedral ceiling with a queen bed, the second has a cathedral ceiling and a double bed (they share a full bathroom with tub), the third bedroom has two single beds with a private full bathroom, the fourth has a single bed with its own bathroom with shower and last (but not least) ‘Blue Heaven’ is the original cabin with two single beds, its own small blue cathedral ceiling and full bathroom with tiled shower. 'Blue Heaven' is perfect for the folks or the kids !

All the bathrooms are new with white fixtures and white tiles.

There is parking on the circular drive for 5 cars and an extra spot across the road.

A gourmet open kitchen is surrounded by a screened-in porch with views of the lake and a large curved counter one can sit at to entertain the chef or serve breakfast to the kids. Stainless steel appliances, including a new stainless gas BBQ (with extra burners) outside on the private patio. Adjacent is a laundry room with front load washer and dryer. A small extra bar fridge sits out on the porch for cold drinks and a Breville cappuccino machine is a new edition.

A cathedral ceiling with new fireplace is in the main cottage with views of the lake and the passing boats. Games are included to play on a handsome 1950's bridge table that extends out into a games table for laying out jigsaw puzzles. A bookcase with books and magazines for all interests is in the living room to enjoy during your stay.

The screened-in porch has a full dining table and there is a second dining table indoors.

Outdoor amenities:

For birders, there are chickadees, goldfinches, woodpeckers (including the spectacular pileated woodpeckers, which have been seen early by the patio ) blue jays and of course the tiny hummingbirds, which zoom by one’s head to the feeder on the patio every day. The osprey also nests in the area and blue herons and loons are all around the lake.

The loons are the signature sound of an evening in Canadian cottage country.

There is an outdoor ping pong table for the kids, next to the 'magic' door (see picture). Where the door 'leads' ......is up to your imagination.

Down at the dock, the water is clear and warm and ideal for swimming, boating, kayaking, windsurfing etc. or just lounging, watching the sun go down. Boats can be rented from the local marina.

The Cataraqui Trail, a famous hiking trail, is accessed a 5 minute walk away. It follows the old railway line. Or just hike down the cottage roads and see the other cottages and enjoy the different views of the lake.
