About Owner/Property Manager
I have been coming to this property 60 years. Many additions and embellishments have been added over the years but the lake remains the same. It is my favourite place and that of my children and now grandchildren.
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Drummond/North Elmsley
Rideau Lake is part of the Kingston/Ottawa waterway. It is considered one of the important lakes in Ontario. The lake is clean and well stocked with fish. Rideau Ferry marine is about 4 km away by water.
What makes this Cottage unique
Cottage is within 10 ft of the water. Shoreline and lake have a sandy bottom. Entry deepens very gradually End of the dock is about 4 ft deep I in early season.

Excellent Family Reunion
We had a family reunion at this cottage and it was absolutely perfect. It's even nicer than the photos would indicate - very private with a great "cottage atmosphere". Plenty of room to move around, both inside and out, and the views of the Rideau River out the front windows and outdoor deck are second to none. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of appliances, cutlery and cooking pots. Everything was in top working order. The kids loved playing on the trampoline and swings. We would love to come back and enjoy it during the summer months when the swimming would be another great asset.
I am pleased your family enjoyed our cottage. I hope you will come back to the Rideau on a warm summer day. You were excellent guests, leaving the cottage clean and tidy.
It was a perfect spot for a family holiday with lots of space inside and nature all around outside.
The cottage has a lovely homey feel and lots of room for different activities. The trampoline was a big hit with all age groups and a special play was performed in it the last nite.
A lot of time was spent in the water canoeing, rowing, kayaking and swimming to the raft or island. It is a wonderful spot for adventures, visiting painted turtles and spotting osprey or loons. Murpheys Point provincial park is free this year and seeing a rat snake was a thrill for my 11 yr. old grandson.
The cottage is well equipped for cooking and games and provided an ideal setting for a memorable family vacation. Lucky for us the weather was perfect and the cottage is close enough to Ottawa for two 20 ish grandsons to join us several nights.
Nice place to stay
Stayed for one week with family and was pleased. Good fishing, especially for my 6 year old grandson. Central to towns and Ottawa.
The perfect cottage
We had the best week at this cottage. We had 5 adults and 3 children- 2 babies and one 4 year old. The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed. With a close drive to Perth, any groceries etc, were quickly accessible. The owner was so welcoming. We would definitely try to book this cottage again for our next stay in the Perth area.
Emily and family were the perfect guests. They enjoyed and cared for the facilities and did an excellent job cleaning and tidying before they left.
Historic town of Perth 15 minute drive away.
