Experience a holiday you'll never forget on the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in 1842, the stone defensible lockmaster's house at Davis Lockstation has been rehabilitated to the highest standards, offering a unique, self-catering holiday experience. Situated on high land overlooking the locks, the house accommodates up to six people with two bedrooms and a pull-out sofa and provides spectacular views of Sand Lake!
Luxuriously equipped with Queen-sized Fairmont Hotel mattresses, a clawfoot tub, custom kitchen and laundry facilities, the Lockmaster's house is the ultimate romantic getaway for two, or a family vacation in the heart of the Rideau Lakes. Complete with a deck, private dock and a canoe, a stay in the historic Lockmaster's House at Davis Lockstation offers an unforgettable experience Colonel John By would be envious of!
Davis Lockstation is located a short senic drive from the villages of Elgin, Newboro, and Westport, thirty minutes from the City of Kingston and Highway 401, and 1.5 hours from downtown Ottawa.
The Rideau Lakes Region is a great place to explore. You can take advantage of the great fishing, boating, swimming, water-skiing, or lock through the historic canal system to the other lakes and towns. In the surrounding towns and cities there are also lots of activities and events to participate in including golf, historic tours, boat tours, shopping, restaurants and lots more!
