Waterfront cottage rental with the best sunsets
We love Rice Lake and we know you will too.
Astrid. purchased this House in 2015
Why Astrid. chose Alnwick/Haldimand
Only the best sunsets from this west-facing property. Our cottage was fully renovated inside and out on the HGTV show "Income Property on Vacation" with Scott McGillivray. Since the show, we have added a new dock and new patio furniture, as well as all the water toys (canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle board and paddle boat).
What makes this House unique
Only 1.5 hours east of the CN Tower. With quick commute options like Taunton Road, 401 and 407, you will be hanging on the deck in no time rather than sitting in traffic. Rice Lake boasts the best fishing in all of Ontario. You can catch walleye and bass right off our dock.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund

An awesome vacation!
The cottage location was fantastic with the lake only a few steps away. The cottage was very well stocked with plenty of water toys available as well. Enjoyed many relaxing evenings viewing the beautiful sunset from the deck over the boathouse. We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay, thanks Astrid and Sheldon.

Thank you guys! You are welcome back anytime!
Loved the whole experience!
We had a fabulous 9 days at Astrid and Sheldon's cottage. Everything was comfortable including the patio furniture, the beds, and the couches- we relaxed, spent time talking, reading, swimming, and sleeping. The fans and lake breezes kept us cool in the hot, humid weather, and we enjoyed getting our family together. The toys were a bonus, and we had fun kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding. Hope to come back soon!
Thank you so much Jim and Gina for your kind words. We appreciate that you took care of our home away from home and hope to welcome you back soon. The fish candles were a surprise added bonus and we absolutely love them.

Beautiful property! The house and outside deck is gorgeous!
The owners are a wonderful couple, very welcoming and sweet. The cottage was decorated beautifully, with all the necessary cooking tools. The outside deck was amazing for our sunset dinners. Many water toys for us to enjoy, during some very hot summer days. Fishing from the dock was very enjoyable for our husbands. Three couples felt very comfortable in this space. There is no air conditioning but the owners have provided fans in each room and ceiling fans that kept the cottage very comfortable. This is truly a place to relax, enjoy the view of the lake, read some books from the cottage collection and slow down. It is a 10 out of 10! I would definitely go back to this cottage.
Thank you so much for your flattering words. We are humbled by them. It is important to us that guests enjoy their stay. We know you only get "one vacation," so we aim to make it a great experience. Thank you again and you are welcome back to our cottage any time. We are also happy to recommend you as guests for any future stays with us or otherwise. Happy summer!
