About Michael Kazda
We purchase this cottage to be our lifelong place to meet as a family. We have so many memories to share and new adventures to have. We grew up in Carleton Place and spent a lot of time on Mississippi Lake at our friends cottages so this was the ideal place to think of retiring. Until we do retire we can share this lake house with your family and we are sure you will create a wonderful vacation memory.
Michael Kazda purchased this House in 2016
Why Michael Kazda chose Beckwith
We searched the area for a cottage property and wanted the best water on the lake, quiet surroundings and west facing. We found all of this at 100 Beck Shore with the added benefit of an expertly crafted home so there is little maintenance. Hence our description lake house instead of cottage. This property is also located 10 minutes from Stonefields Heritage Farm which is a premiere wedding destination. www.stonefieldsweddings.com. Our son Byron is getting married there in 2017.

WOW! Everything and more
Please take the opportunity if you need a vacation near Perth ON! The home is beautiful, very tastefully decorated, clean and very spacious. The soundings are perfect for your get-away and the water toys at your disposal are amazing.
The owner and property manger are fantastic and easy to work with, we really had a great time! We look forward to returning!
We had a wonderful stay at the lake house! The home is beautiful, the setting is idyllic and the sunsets are amazing! There is really nothing lacking here... the water toys (canoe, kayaks), the BBQ. fire pit and screen in gazebo with super comfortable couches and chairs. The home is fully equipped and the dealings with the owners couldn't have been better.
A truly great place for a family getaway!
great lakehouse rental
We had a great stay here. They had a beautiful set up in the backyard and lots of space for 8 adults and two dogs. It was nice that they had a canoe and a kayak to use as well. Great place! Would definitely return!
Quiet and Relaxing
My bride and I were seeking some R 'n' R for a few days away from home. This place did not disappoint. With the exception of the odd snow machine, it was like we were the only ones on the lake. Our dog was welcome and she was content running around on the lake. We had family take the short drive from Ottawa to visit us for a night. The house was complete with all necessary amenities and some. We could have just packed food and drinks. Thank you for sharing your family retreat with us.
A Real Gem
Our three night stay at this lovely VRBO was one of the most enjoyable weekend getaways we've ever had. Michael (the owner) was super easy to deal with and Byron (his son) was available when needed. This beautiful home was so clean and well stocked that we didn't need many of the things we brought with us, ie: cooking pots, nice wine glasses, cooking utensils, etc... The location itself is spectacular but unfortunately the weather was not very nice, so we spent almost our entire stay indoors. But hey... what comfortable indoors they were!
The only issues we had were firstly, finding this place; my GPS sent us to the opposite side of the lake! And secondly there was a plumbing problem, but Byron was so great to deal with it quickly and efficiently that these two issues really turned out to be non-issues.
The property itself is exactly as described, the bedrooms were spacious and the beds super comfortable. As mentioned, the kitchen was very well equiped and the common living space was inviting and relaxing. Sadly, we were not able to take advantage of the beautiful lake but would love to come back and try again.
The quaint little town of Perth is only a 15-20 minute drive and has everything we could have possibly needed; all staples plus a wide variety of restaurants and pubs. One place that we went, that we actually would have passed by if we hadn't checked it out on Yelp, was The Hungry Seven; a little roadside diner that isn't much to look at from the outside but WOW, what great home cooked food! Check it out!
If you're looking for an all-around great place to stay, this Home on the Mississippi won't disappoint. Loved it!
We had a wonderful time renting this property for the long weekend. The house had been thoroughly cleaned beforehand and easily accommodated 7 adults. The beds were comfortable and the backyard was great, with easy access to the water and a spectacular sunset in the evenings. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Excellent Bass fishing. Connected to snowmobile trail system. Near our nations Capital Ottawa and the historic town of Perth
