About Donna Adams

We moved to Kenora in 1999 from Winnipeg. Peter is a Pharmacist, I (Donna) am a Mortgage Specialist with RBC and our daughter is away at University. We love our lake and hope you will enjoy it too!

Donna Adams purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Donna Adams chose Lake of the Woods

We completed our loft in 2013 with all brand new construction. We had room on the property to build a guest cottage in a setting with no direct view of our home to ensure privacy. We welcome you to our property and hope you enjoy what we see. We moved to Kenora to enjoy the lake life on a full time basis and enjoy it fully!

What makes this cottage unique

Sit on the dock and watch the sun go down while listening to the loons. Or, sit by a bonfire and roast wieners and s'mores while telling fish stories. Or, spend a sunny afternoon jumping off the water trampoline and enjoy swimming in our beautiful lake. Or, rent a boat and spend a lazy afternoon fishing or waterskiing. So much to offer.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Everything from the holiday home to the lakeside view to the water trampoline was just fantastic and Donna and Peter were the perfect (and very kind) hosts. Thank you for the fishing, boating, tubing experiences. You gave us a holiday to remember!

This was our first EVER trip to Canada and using a VRBO listing. This was definitely a "Home away from Home" experience. My husband & I traveled with a friend's family of 4 (6 people) and the accommodations were MORE THAN adequate - spacious, clean, lots of towels, dish towels, silverware, dishes (THE DISHES - OH WAY - were what I would say you would find in a 5 star restaurant). The atmosphere / hospitality - OMG - Donna, Peter, their dogs & the neighbors dogs - it was like visiting with long lost friends the minute we should up. We could ask them for almost anything (except for maybe $100K - giggle giggle) - we ate meals together (taking turns doing the cooking), we were allowed to use the hot tub WHENEVER we wanted, the water trampoline was AWESOME, fishing of the dock, & if video taped, someone could have incriminating evidence of 40-year old women running & jumping off the dock like teenage kids - cause that is JUST HOW YOU FELT - like a teenager. Oh - and lets not forget about the fishing - OH THE FISHING - LOTS OF FISH. The only thing is that there are lots of stairs (about 10) to climb - we didn't mind it - but some might. Mind you - NONE of us had ever met Donna or Peter (just phone calls & emails) and it was truly HOME AWAY FROM HOME - "living" next to long lost friends. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Donna & Peter - you have made this our "go to Canada spot". - Wayne & Tina Meyers.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and consider you as new friends as well. It was wonderful to see the enjoyment on your faces as you caught many fish and enjoyed the water trampoline despite the cold water of early June. We look forward to seeing you again!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First time ever renting a cabin, It is the only way to go especially with hosts like Peter and Donna, From the time we checked in to the very last minute we left they made us feel like part of their family, When we arrived they were just finishing cleaning the beautiful cabin and gave us a tour and explained how everything works and showed us around their cabin just down the lane, The Hot tub and deck and beach water trampoline and beach toys and volleyball net were fantastic, They even asked us to join in bonfires, making s'mores ,drinks and sharing in fishing stories, which ended up in being the best part as I hired Peter to take me and my two sons out catch some really quality Walleye, with some fancy jigs and fishing rods he has as well what a beautiful boat, we ended up catching our limit and had many fish over 24 inches. and we were able to tell our own stories later that night.

We left early in the morning and were home by 2pm and Donna had made a wonderful lunch for us and we ate some of our Walleye in her terrific fish tacos. Later Peter took my sons tubing and they had a blast, This is all they could talk about all week and peter took them out once more for free. We all hired peter to take us out again for fishing on the second last day for crappies and we filled the boat with them. It was the best time we all had fishing as we caught over 36 crappies and had six Master anglers. Peter and Donna made our 10 days seem way to short, The cabin has everything you need and has great roads for riding bikes and walking, lots of trails. And my wife enjoyed the fact she could relax and enjoy the beautiful views and sunsets on the private beach and use the deck/dock and hot tub to relax. Also being that the town of Kenora is so close you are able to shop go to movies and enjoy the towns many activities and festivals. Thanks for all the great memories and new friendship.
