This area is some of the most beautiful in Ontario. We are located minutes from Griffith, approximately 30 minutes south of Renfrew.

Also at Griffith is The Greater Madawaska Canoe Rental and Shuttle service. The Madawaska River at Griffith is one of Ontario's most beautiful waterways. The Madawaska flows in to the lower portion known as Centennial Lake and Black Donald. There is over 40km of boating and fishing with absolute stunning scenery.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My wife and I live in Guelph Ontario. I am a geologist at the University of Guelph, my wife is a practitioner in Biontology. Our property managers are long time residents of Griffith. Cory is currently working at Canada Nuclear Laboratories and is an Occupational Safety and Health Specialist. His wife Julie is a graduate of Travel and Tourism and Esthetiques, currently working from her home and is a talented jewelry artist.
Why the Owner Chose Greater Madawaska, ON, Canada:
This property is very private and nestled on beautiful & clean Jeffers Lake. It is surrounded by lush forest. As well as the lake there are 2 ponds that support so much wild life. The cottage boasts that it is completely off the grid. We are the second owners to this unique cottage of cordwood construction. The nearby village of Griffith is home to so many talented artists. The beautiful Madawaska River flows through, all the way to the Ottawa River and houses several hydro dams.. It's lower portions, Centennial Lake and Black Donald is one of the largest, most underdeveloped lakes in Eastern Ontario with approximately 250 miles of shoreline and provides excellent fishing and recreation. There is over 40km of boating. Public boat launch only approximately 12 minutes from the cottage on Matawatchan Rd.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property captivated us from the first time we were visiting with the original owner who was the designer and builder. We shared the same dream of being away from the crazy pace of life, and being so close with nature. It's just quiet and peaceful. To sit on the dock with a book and just breath and notice how in tune you become with singing of the birds, the croaking of frogs, the splash of a fish grabbing is supper from the surface of the water....... its just priceless. We could never spend enough time here, so we decided to rent, we knew others needed to see this piece of paradise.
