About the Property
5 Bedrooms, Large Property&Waterfront, Private Tennis Court, Jacuzzi & Sauna
The Upper Rideau lake is easy to boat around, not very busy, has two towns that can be accessed by boat and locks on each end that offer endless opportunities to explore the various nearby lakes and towns that make up the Rideau Canal System. Or you can just stay on our lake which is great for fishing, swimming, boating, windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking, etc. Our cottage is located at the deepest part of the lake (60 feet depth) and has 6 feet water depth with hard packed sand bottom (no weeds) at the dock--great for jumping into the lake--and then quickly drops to 30 feet just offshore.
The old stone farmhouse which was built in 1835 is the heart and soul of the property. It is renovated for comfort but maintains the old world charm with its exposed beam ceilings, stone fireplaces, 3 foot thick walls and original pine floors. The newer addition provides extra space and comfort and is packed with fun with a sauna, jacuzzi, pool table and large screen television. A large wooden deck runs along the side of the house offering views of the lake, bbq, eating and sitting areas and access to the private tennis court (which includes hockey and basketball nets).
The farmhouse has a Master Bedroom with a king bed and small office area, a master bathroom, a second bedroom with two twins and a third bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and a half bathroom. There is a fully stocked kitchen with all appliances including coffee maker and dishwasher. There is also a beautiful living room with an old stone fireplace and exposed beam ceilings. The addition has a second dining room with large screened windows and views of the lake, a room with a pool table, piano and hot tub, a second living area with large flat screen television, a full bathroom, sauna, a fourth bedroom with King bed and pull-out twin sofa bed and desk, and a loft bedroom upstairs with one queen, 3 twin beds & a toddler bed we call the 'kidzone'.
The cottage is an easy three hour drive from Toronto (310 km), an hour and twenty minutes from Ottawa and 40 minutes from Kingston (50 km). It can be accessed by train into Kingston or Smith's Falls (35 km to the North).

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My husband and I were born and raised in Canada. We moved to the Turks and Caicos Islands shortly after we were married and lived there for twelve years. My husband is an accountant and I am a teacher and we have two children. Last year, we relocated to the Cayman Islands.
Why the Owner Chose Portland, ON, Canada:
My husband and I have been renting cottages in different areas around Ontario every summer for the last 15 years with the intention of buying. When our friend put us onto the Rideau area, we absolutely loved it! Then we looked at the MLS and saw this property and immediately fell in love with it. It is the perfect place for us to visit with friends of family when we are back in Canada for the summers. We both agree that we have never seen a place as special as this property. It's huge mature trees, greenery, beautiful clear waterfront and spectacular sunsets each evening have quickly found a special place in our hearts. The property is such an oasis of seclusion, nature and privacy with it's very large acreage and water frontage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The property's location enables you to rent a boat and travel up and down the Rideau Canal system. If adventurous enough, you can travel to Kingston from one side of our lake and Ottawa from the other side of our lake. Or you can just boat, fish, canoe, kayak, swim, waterski, etc. around our own lake--the Upper Rideau Lake. It is great for swimming and fishing and our cottage is located at the deepest part of the lake with 6 foot depth from the end of the dock with hard packed sand bottom. We boat to the town of Westport for tourist shopping, meals at excellent restaurants like the Cove, and to get groceries and ice cream for the kids. The historic town of Newboro can also be reached by boat with the well known tourist shop called Kilborns and the restaurant and hotel at Stirling Lodge. We also like to take a drive to the spectacular city of Ottawa, our nation's capital.
