Good lake to fish.
It's a nice simple cottage
this little cottage has everything you need. You won't be disappointed.
My husband and I had an amazing week at the cottage with our two teenage boys. The listing was very accurate - we had no surprises. The cottage was very clean and actually has two bedrooms (one is located in the loft). There is also plenty of room outside for a tent and the family room is big enough to accommodate a queen-size blow-up mattress.
The boys fished every day and caught fish each and every time - they were ecstatic. The largest fish was a 44cm (17 1/4") bass which we had for supper one night. You can catch small fish right off the dock and the best fishing is within the bay itself.
There are several grocery stores within 10 -15 minutes drive from the cottage and if you want to rent a boat, Len's Cove Marina is about 10 minutes way.
You will really appreciate the fact that the cottage has air conditioning - we used it most of the week, given the really hot weather.
The owners are wonderful and they are quick to respond to any questions or concerns that you might have.
The cottage is in a perfect location and it is a great deal!. I would highly recommend it to everyone - friends and family alike. :0
Live Laugh Lake... Murphy Bay, Big Rideau Lake
We were looking for a cottage on a lake to celebrate our youngest child heading off to college this fall. Well we found a little piece of heaven on Big Rideau Lake on Murphy's Bay at "Bidwell's Haven". Cottage was really comfortable with AC and a great Ceiling Fan. Our daughter stayed in the Loft, while my wife and I had a beautiful lake to wake up to and see from our bedroom window. Nice big dock for our 20" boat, awesome fishing from the dock or anywhere on the lake. Easy ride to Portland for gas, or a bite to eat, and a campfire at night with a glass of beer and wine. The Bidwell's were the perfect hosts and left us alone unless we had a question. We have already reserved our week for next season at our daughters request and our insistence. Our family had a great time and I know yours would too! Thank you Donna, Rod, Amy and Robb Bidwell. See you in 2017.
Beautiful view, clear lake, great swimming
I had a great week with my son and his two boys 12 and 10. The cottage is basic but well equipped and the property is well maintained - a great place to get away from it all. We saw an osprey, herons, loons, seagulls (of course) chipmunks, a muskrat and a small black animal that looked like a ferret.Lots of sunfish, rock bass. We saw a couple of big bass swim past the dock, but didn't catch them.
Couldn't have picked a nicer place from nicer people
Can't say enough about the location - this newly renovated cottage is on the water. Bring your boat because the fishing is outstanding ... plenty of 19+ inch smallmouth bass - 23+ inch pike and lake trout all 3lbs and more. Clear water, great for swimming, waterskiing and relaxing. The inside was immaculate with all amenities you could ask for with a Red/White/Blue Nautical theme design. Wake up to the sound of waves splashing against the rocks and your husband coming back from fishing at 9:00 am. The only thing that was better than this was the fact that the hosts Amy and Rob were the nicest folks we've ever met... anything we needed they got for us.... The last day we were there we sat in the water to our waists in the lawn chairs for over 3 hours hosting watching the lake and having a (many) refreshing beverage. This vacation felt like a month and yet it was only for 4 nights. Many thanks to our gracious hosts and their assorted family members....see you again soon, hopefully. Teisha and Dan - Orleans, ON
One of the clearest lakes around.
