About Donna Adams

I am a long time employee of a major Chartered Bank currently working as a Mortgage Specialist. Having worked 30 years in the financial industry, I am a very honest and ethical person. I am married with one daughter who is graduating this year and off to University in the Fall. We moved to Kenora, ON in 1999 and have enjoyed every minute of living on beautiful Lake of the Woods and hope to open our newly purchased rental home to you so you may enjoy our beautiful surroundings as much as we have.

Donna Adams purchased this house in 2013

Why Donna Adams chose Lake of the Woods

I have just purchased this home as a rental home because of the perfect location and excellent amenities it offers. You are just a stone's throw away from beautiful Norman Beach which offers a beach, beautiful red pine trees for shade and a covered deck where you can enjoy your lunch. This home offers a large wrap around deck which you can enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon private suntan or an evening sunset while barbequing with your family and friends. This home has 2040 square feet and offers a full kitchen, 2 large living room areas (one on each floor each complete with a gas fireplace), 4 bedrooms which sleep 8, 2 full bathrooms and the convenience of a washer and dryer. There is also a screened in area below the deck to enjoy a bug free evening.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the panaramic view of beautiful Lake of the Woods. You can see Coney Island Beach from the wrap around deck. Walk out your front door and down the path to Norman Beach. Convenience all within walking distance.

Best vacation in a while

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spot, it's on a quiet road near a semi private beach with a great playground. Donna was a great help with the sites right down to recommending a place to pick up bagels and the cabin is stocked with everything that you need. Just had to pick up some food and that was it! It is a 5 minute drive to the centre of Kenora, and a beautiful 45 minute walk. The Dairy Queen was close, and and a convenient store just a bit down the road. All in all a great vacation! Would love to book the same place again next year!

This was the perfect home to rent near Kenora and close to the Lake of the Woods. The house and deck have a wonderful view of the Lake. We saw boats cruising by and pontoon planes taking off. The beach was used by our 5 year old granddaughter daily just a short walk away. We were only about 10 minutes from downtown Kenora. Restaurants nearby and an ice cream store within walking distance. Beds were all queen size with two of them in one of the rooms. Kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and eating utensils. We had 6 people in the unit. Older people up stairs and younger downstairs. Look for the salt and pepper, we found it on our last day. A very inviting home and wonderful landlord, Donna. She was available by phone for any questions or needs we had. We would definitely rent again if we plan to return. Rents quickly as it fills up fast for the summer. A wonderful vacation and a super rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Mr. William T. for the wonderful review. So glad you enjoyed yourselves and you found it comfortable for you and your family. I have since put the s&p on the stove when I clean the house in order to ensure it is easily located. You were fabulous renters and we would welcome you back anytime if you wish to make the long trip from sunny California. Thanks and it was great meeting you and your wife.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this home for a week in July. There were 8 adults and 1 baby. The house was plenty big enough to suit our needs. When we arrived the place was clean and ready for us to move in. It was very handy to have 'extra' items like beach towels and laundry detergent right on site for us to use. We spent a lot of time on the large upper deck, and enjoyed that we could move downstairs to the screened in deck when the bugs came out at night. The view was beautiful and we loved watching a couple big storms roll in during our stay!

As mentioned in the description, this house is not directly on the water. It was still perfect for us, as the park/beach was just a short walk away, and we had a trailered boat we could take to any boat launch we wanted.

Donna was great to deal with and was always available via text and email. We would stay here again and recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you Shannon. It was great dealing with you and as I mentioned to you personally, you were one of my cleanest guests. It is always great to rent my home to families who treat it like their own. Thank you for your thoughtfulness while you resided in my home. Donna

Very Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous vacation at this rental!! Great location- close enough to town but also very quiet! Our 3 year old daughter loved playing at Norman beach and it was so convenient for us to walk to. We loved watching all the boats and planes going by, it gave a real lake feel!

Owners were very friendly and approachable.

Would recommend this getaway for families of all ages. Very spacious and clean! We also enjoyed playing pool, bonus for sure! Everything you need for a great stay is there!

Friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed for a week at this property and enjoyed every minute of it! The wraparound deck was fabulous and we spent many hours there. The property was clean, well maintained with all the amenities of home and more. The location was great-close to everything and easy to find. Donna was very friendly and made the booking, arrival and all arrangements a breeze. Her recommendations of things to do and see like the Farmer's Market and dinner cruise were very enjoyable. We would highly recommend staying at this "million dollar view" property- it was well worth it! The views truly are spectacular.

Lake of the Woods

  • 3 of 5

This is definitely not a waterfront property on Lake of the Woods. One can get a nicer cottage on Lake of the woods with own private dock etc. for a lot less money. You have to load your boat everyday as there is no dock close to this cottage. the cottage is very nice, modern and clean. It is a short walk to a small beach and about five minutes into downtown Kenora. If you want a fishing / boating getaway this is not the place. No dock etc. There is a nice wrap around deck around the front as well. Overall, I think it is too much money for what you get. You could accommodate 3 couples nicely in this unit.

Kenora's population triples in the summer months due to visitors and owners of vacation homes on the lake. Come enjoy the many ammenities Kenora has to offer and enjoy the majestic scenery around you.
