Your private waterfront lakeside suite offers a holiday that combines the best of both worlds; the hospitality and charm of a bed and breakfast; the experience of cottage life; and the complete privacy of your own fully equipped apartment attached to our home.
Our attractive lakeside suite has a wonderful view of the lake from your private deck. As fall turns to winter the sounds of the loons on the lake give way to the howls of wolves and coyotes in the distance and the hoot of owls in the forest.
Your private waterfront apartment has it's own bedroom with dressers, a closet, and a double bed; a living room with comfortable couches and a TV; a full ocean theme bathroom with a stand up shower and an old fashioned original vintage claw foot bathtub in the bedroom; a full kitchen with a fridge and freezer, table and chairs, a microwave/convection oven, toaster, 2- element hot plate, a small George Foreman grill, Kureg coffee maker, a crock pot, and access to a portable propane BBQ. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, dish soap, and salt & pepper. Complimentary morning coffee and tea with milk or cream is provided. We also provide fresh bath towels, bed linens, and toiletries. (You are welcome to bring your own sheets etc. if you prefer). There is free internet access and a TV with a DVD player and large movie selection but no satellite TV.

This all Canadian picturesque location is "off the beaten path" and offers a private waterfront vista in a typical "cottage country" setting surrounded with natural beauty. It offers the best of both worlds with access to endless under an hour interesting road trips; is only 15-20 minutes away from the historical towns of Perth, Carleton Place, and Smiths Falls; and we are only 45 minutes to Merrickville and Ottawa, the Nation's Capital. Feel your stress melt away as you make your way to the end of a picturesque 1.5 kilometer nature filled private cottage road lined with split rail fences that winds it's way through a "mini boreal forest" and is home to deer, bears, wolves, coyotes, beavers, rabbits, hawks, and owls.
The property is situated on a private point with a spectacular panoramic view of Mississippi Lake from the deck of your private suite and access to the lakefront and surrounding woodlands for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice fishing, shoreline bonfires, and if conditions permit skating. Please note we are also 45 minutes to the Rideau Canal in Ottawa; the world’s longest skating rink.
Lanark County is a beautiful and scenic world heritage destination and offers the best that country living has to offer close to a large city center. Of course our favorite local town is Perth set on the Tay River connected to the Rideau Lakes and Canal system. It is picturesque, has a rich history, and is home to impressive heritage stone buildings built by Scottish stone masons that house shops, specialty stores, restaurants, museums, flea markets, and three live theaters. Perth has just hosted filming of 2 CBC miniseries and has been voted the most beautiful town in Ontario many times over as well as the best place to retire in Canada by Chatelaine magazine.
Our location also offers under an hour access to endless Lanark County winter destinations that include Calabogie Peaks ski resort, the K & P hiking and snowmobiling trail, cross country skiing at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, Timber Run Golf Course, Wheeler’s Pancake House, and the Mill of Kintail, and one of a kind shopping in Perth, Balderson, Westport, and the popular Kilborn’s on the Rideau at Newboro.
I am a huge fan of the area having moved here from Ottawa over 20 years ago and can help guests with info on the area and recommendations. I also provide extensive brochures and maps on local attractions in your suite.
