Mississippi Lake is a well-looked after lake with great fishing and boating, many varieties of birds and other wildlife, and this location is very close (within a couple of kilometres) to a quiet, little known but very good golf course (Scottish Glen). Carleton Place is a lovely country location which has a variety of shops, a Saturday Farmers Market and many other amenities, events and locations of interest.
