Beautiful home and boat house on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at this beautiful home which is spacious and has a well equipped kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat house as it was an amazing place to spend the day on peaceful Meech Lake.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation week at Meech Lake. Nancy's home is absolutely stunning, beautifully designed and very comfortable. The lake was lovely and the region feels peaceful and remote but is very close to anything you could ever want. If you get a chance to stay here you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Canadian Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect getaway place for our family vacation Just right for our family of three. We had everything we needed to stay comfortably. The boathouse was fun for cooking out and fishing - lots of fishing! Meech Lake is so clean and clear. As another reviewer mentioned, there are a number of stairs leading up to the house, but for our trips up and down once or twice a day, it wasn't a big issue. It would not deter us from staying here again. The area is beautiful, quiet, and only a short 20 minute drive from Ottawa.

Unique Post and Beam Barn Wood Design Property Spacious enough for 2 -3 couples

  • 5 of 5

This property is the most luxurious property listed on VRBO for Meech Lake from what I can tell by other listings.It is truly even more beautiful in person than the pictures, be prepared to be awed strucked. Yes you have a beautifully designed rock staircase to climb to get to the house but it is well worth it. Upon entering the house you have a sense of "oooh I"m going to enjoy this". There is ample space to relax in any of the rooms. Nancy provides plenty of provisions to make your stay feel like home! Everything was very well equipped. The spacious and impressive boat house is fantastic even in the rainy weather we experienced. Nothing like watching the rain on lake level in the comfort of a shelter with a panoramic view!

This is a beautiful well loved property.It was perfect for a family winter holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Nancy was lovely and available for any problems that might arise.

I would highly recommend this rental.

The only caveat is that you must be able to climb stairs to reach it as it is preached on a hill. The view of Meech Lake is well worth it.

Thank you, Nancy for sharing your home with us.
