The White Pines Cottage Resort, situated near Calabogie, is a four season vacation and fishing destination. We are located on Black Donald/Centennial Lake, which at 27 miles long, makes it one of the largest lakes in Eastern Ontario. Our deluxe cottage is open year round. It offers a field stone fireplace, cathedral ceilings, oak floors and 2 decks. In the winter, this can be your cozy warm retreat after a leisurely walk through the multitude of lit Christmas trees dotted around the premises.
All the cottages have full bathrooms. There are well equipped kitchens with a full size fridge, stove and microwave, coffee maker, dishes, utensils and all cooking equipment. In each bedroom the comforters, pillows and blankets are provided, but you will need to bring sheets and pillow cases, towels and soaps, t-towels & dishcloths. Each cottage has a picnic table, fire pit, gas BBQ if requested and deck chairs. The grounds are dotted with many perennials and annuals gardens for a stunning show. The grass is always lush even in the driest months, thanks to our irrigation system. With all of our cottage rentals, the use of our paddleboat, kayaks and canoes is complimentary. We also provide motorboat rentals so you can get out and explore the lake.
The White Pines is nestled in the heart of the Madawaska Highlands, part of the Ottawa Valley, which stretches from Ottawa, westward to the wilderness of Ontario's world renowned Algonquin Park. More than one half is wilderness, with 6 million acres of clean waterways, rolling hills and dramatic landforms. It is one of the most activity enriched regions in Ontario. The Madawaska Highlands follows the Madawaska River from Algonquin Park to Calabogie. This is a majestic hilly region with many wilderness acres, hardwood forests, and hundreds of lakes. Our secluded cottages are strategically placed within a gorgeous mature pine forest. The topography is a rugged wilderness setting which is habitat to abundant wildlife including deer, bear, moose, fox, wolves, otter, beaver and mink. Bird enthusiasts and photographers will be overwhelmed with over 60 species of birds
Enjoy a romantic getaway for two in the beautiful wilderness of Eastern Ontario. Bring your family, strap on a pair of snowshoes, cross country skis or hiking shoes and take pleasure in the many miles of scenic groomed trails. This family resort caters to both, the adventurous, or those just wanting to enjoy the quiet solitude of nature.
There is a myriad of opportunities to enjoy depending on your wishes. Right on site we offer water sports, a beautiful sand beach, playground, volleyball/badminton court and horseshoe pits. Our trail system is second to none with over 25km of scenic named routes to explore.
There are golf courses within a short drive including the championship Calabogie Highlands golf course, churches, shopping, dining, and so much more. For an exciting excursion, there is canoeing down the Madawaska River, a day trip that we highly recommend. The Ottawa River, known as Canada’s Whitewater Rafting Capital, is only an hour away, with numerous outfitters to get you out on the raging river.
