This property features docking for at least 7 boats, great swimming, great fishing, and exploring. It has a commercial kitchen, rec-room with pool table and big screen tv's with satellite and wifi.
It is located, within walking distance to the cataraqui trail (great place for biking and hiking), convenience store with beer/liquor, etc, opinicon lodge restaurant, historic chaffey's lock and the lockmaster's museum, cedar’s art studio, and boat rentals.
The dock has a beach swimming area and a 60x20 foot dock with great swimming and lots of room to lounge.

Also, on the dock there is a storage shed that has a dry bar with bar fridge and a serving window.
This property is unlike any other available on the rideau, a great place for family reunions, fishing derbies, conferences, weddings and corporate retreats!

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Owner and operator of Rideau Lakes Cottages- privately owned cottage rentals on the Rideau. Grew-up in Rideau Lakes Township, love the area so we decided to move back permanently.
Why the Owner Chose Elgin, ON, Canada:
Dorothy's Lodge used to be in the family. My wife's mother was the first waitress to work in the restaurant there. We currently live next-door and since I had multiple inquiries each year for large groups and could never accommodate them, we thought that this beautiful property would be a great fit with the business.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The dock and waterfront are on the canal just down from the lock station in the sheltered canal just at the opening to Indian Lake, the best lake on the Rideau Canal! The five building and commercial kitchen are great for entertaining family and guests.
