This lakefront cottage is on a serene, quiet lake only 40 min drive from Ottawa. Ideal for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing; hiking, cross country skiing; or pure contemplation. Enjoy quiet time in nature minutes from Parliament Hill. Price includes the 3.5% Québec tax on lodging. Discount for long stay.
This spacious cottage sits on an island (with year-round road access) and offers privacy, calm and comfort minutes from Ottawa. The cottage has an open-concept space with high ceiling living room, dining room, kitchen and TV room. Main room has multiple large windows on the lake and a large field-stone fireplace. It has three bedrooms: one with a queen-size bed, one with a double bed and one with two bunk-beds (four singles beds), to sleep up to 8 people. It also has a charcoal BBQ. Modern, simple furniture and hard wood floor throughout. All the charm of a country house with the comfort of a city flat! Substantial price discounts for weekly and monthly stays during the low season; please inquire directly to the hosts!
The lake has fresh, amazingly clean water for swimming. The small sandy beach and the shallow water on a sand bed are perfect for adults and children. Canoë, kayak, stand up paddle board and paddle boat, with safety vests (all sizes), at your disposal. Firepit for campfire by the waterfront.
We provide you with a clean cottage and expect the same from you. Bring your own sheets and towels, or rent them for $10.00 per guest; we provide duvets and pillows. You are asked to respect the quite, peaceful nature of the lake: no loud parties allowed. Please make sure to store your garbage in the outside garbage bin, located by the front entrance. The water is drawn from a well and safe for drinking. However, an extended use (eg series of long showers over a continuous period of more than an hour) could result in temporary water shortage and the need to re-prime the water pump. Please also note that there is no reception for the TV, but it is connected to a DVD player, so you may want to bring a few of your favorite DVDs or tap into our eclectic DVD library! For those who are not familiar with operating a charcoal BBQ such as the Big Green Egg, please familiarize yourself with the operation tips found on the biggreenegg website, under the Getting Started section.
Happy parents and partners. We like to enjoy the simple things that life has to offer: good food with company, good books with a view, to be active, and lazy too!
