The cottage has a private dock and a gated lockable entry. There is a second dock and parking space used by patrons of the island cottage.

Gorgeous Canadian sunsets, and lots of room for the kids to play!
This cottage is a very good value. Its a nice property and quaint cottage located on the west side of highway 15 there is a nature trail on the opposite side of the highway. You can kayak under the highway on Otter Creek to take an adventure into an everglade like winding waterway that goes on for about 1 kilometer with birds, beavers, turtles, large frogs, and many other creatures to observe.
Being next to highway 15 can cause road noise which many people get used to but some may find it undesirable. Since there is not a beach and the water depth does not get past 3 meters deep for about 100 meters from shore better swimming locations may be found using the kayaks or by renting a boat at lens cove in Portland.
This is primarily a fishing cottage with no neighbors where you can be as loud as you wish.

My name is Bret Hartman and I'm the trustee for the property. This cottage is a fantastic place to have a great time with friends and family.
Bret Hartman purchased this cottage in 1989
There are no neighbors to disrupt your privacy or good times. There are many places to visit for example historical Perth is a 15 minute drive. Portland and the Big Rideau is a 5 minute drive. Ottawa is about a 45 minute drive north. Driving to Ottawa is a great day trip where you can find anything your heart desires.
This Bay is a wildlife mecca. It's the best fishing on the lake hands down. The most experienced fisherman on the lake travel to this bay to do their fishing and you can cast a line right off the dock and kick back. The cottage is situated right off of highway 15 making traveling easy. Across the street is a hiking trail where you can observe the everglade-like nature preserve that is visible from our google map of the cottage.
Secluded and absolutely beautiful. Close to highway but sound was not an issue. Air conditioning was a welcome surprise in the 35C heat!
The cozy cottage was a great place to stay with kids or pets. The place is all fenced in and large area to play lots of games. The only down side was it was right on highway 15, its loud at times. We would rent it again for sure!!
We spent a wonderful week here with a 5 year old, a 1 year old, and two dogs. Everyone had a great time. The cabin itself was even nicer than we expected for a rustic fishing cottage (clean, fully stocked kitchen, wireless internet). The property has a grassy lawn that the kids and dogs enjoyed, and is very private with no neighbors close enough to worry about. At the same time, there is plenty of shade and wildlife with beautiful views from the cabin. We especially enjoyed kayaking and exploring Perth. The only downside is the road noise, but highway 15 is a two-lane country road, and makes the cottage about an hour from our home in west Ottawa; the road is also not really visible from the property, and vice versa, with the trees. We definitely hope to visit again.
This was the perfect spot for our family, with two dogs and two little kids. We will definitely be back.
Our group of 4 had a good time at this relaxing cottage. Excellent location to see things in the area. The property was clean and had everything we needed. We have it on our list as a cottage to return to in the future.
Cottage and location were exactly as described/pictured. Property was very clean and well maintained. Caretaker was friendly and helpful. Good fishing right off the dock. We would definitely return.
Scotia Bank is in Smith Falls, Super WalMart, Canadian Tire and Independent Grocery are great places for food or any other items you might need. The Hospital is in Smith Falls which is 8 miles North of Cottage on Route 15.
The cottage is right off of highway 15 therefore some road noise should be expected. There are trees and bushes which provided about 80% visual privacy. The swimming may not be considered ideal by some due to weedy bottom I recommend taking the kayaks around to find your ideal swimming spot. Finding a cottage without neighbors is hard to find therefore I believe this out weighs the roads close proximity and less them optimal swimming.
