About the Property

Fall Rhapsody or Thanksgiving

The cottage is on Lac Sinclair, about 1 hour from downtown Ottawa. 5 bedrooms available, sandy beach, comes with use of a canoe, paddle boat and kayak, fire-pit by the lake, BBQ in the screened in porch so no bugs for dinner, wood stove in the basement along with a pool table, kitchen has electric stove, dishwasher and double sink and a refrigerator, (second refrigerator on the porch). Dining room table seats 10 people very comfortably and we have had 14 or more people without too many elbows being bumped. There is 1.5 bathrooms, sorry, a shower but no tub (although there is a lake…), washer and dryer in the basement washroom. It is on a well, so the water is very drinkable without having to worry about boiling. It is a four season place, so it is open in the winter too if you want to rent it later in the year. The price is 1500$/week, but please give me a call and we can discuss as this is the first year I am renting it out. I am asking for a 500$ returnable damage/cleaning deposit. You will get that back as long as there is no damage, undue cleaning required or noise violations/fines. Of course there are others on the lake so I ask that you consider my neighbours and not create a nuisance after hours. I also want to keep the place smoke free, there is a walk out area that is covered so smokers will not suffer too much even in the rain... Xmas/ New Years and Thanksgiving I will likely have special rates, and by special I mean higher. There may be a few extras as well, like firewood will be 200$ a face cord if you use a lot for bonfires. Add 10$ per night per person beyond 4 people for large groups.
What else can I say for now, there is space to set up a badminton net, and horse shoes or petanque if you prefer (have to bring your own balls or shoes), and a good size area for parking if required. Oh yes, the next door neighbor has a boat launch area that he has said we can use if you have a towed boat. Let me know about that beforehand so I can confirm though please.
For the winter, a little bit of a hill for tobogganing if you like. The lake does freeze over late in the season for snowshoeing and X-country skiing. Nice quiet location.
Recently added satellite TV.
Give me a call if you have any questions!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 56 years old, born and raised in Ottawa. I have 5 kids, mostly grown up, two in university now. I am an Engineer working with National Research Council Canada for the last 17 years. I consider myself a handyman and do most of my own repair and upgrade work myself. I live in Ottawa, about 1.5 hours from my cottage.

Why the Owner Chose La Pêche, QC, Canada:
Good location for a large family get together. Shallow water and beach for kids. 5 bedrooms lets couples have their own spaces. Modern kitchen and screened in porch allows for the comforts of home while in the country setting. The lakes on the Quebec side are just beautiful with the hilly terrain. Its far enough from the city that you can actually see the stars and the milky way on a clear night. Clean air and very little light pollution.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I bought the place for the bedrooms, as I have a large family myself. But the thing that makes it great we find is the screened in porch. It makes such a difference not having to battle with blackflies, mosquitoes, wasps, and flys at dinner time. Overlooking the lake at lunch or dinner, and even having a coffee at breakfast when the lake is mirror smooth is such a wonderful experience.
