Built in the late 1700s this is one of the first homes built in the area but updated to have the comforts and conveniences of modern day but the charm of the past. 5 bedrooms; 4 bedrooms upstairs- three rooms with King size beds and one room with a queen & double bed. The upstairs landing also has a double pull out couch. The downstairs has a trundle bed with two single beds. All major appliances and the hot tub is operational from April to October. There is high speed internet and Bell Expressvu tv. The Old Stone Home is located in a picturesque shallow bay, with very little boat traffic as the bay ends several hundred yards past the home. The shipping channel is two miles/three kilometres away from both homes, so there is no chance of someone being swamped in a canoe by the waves of a 1000 foot freighter. Bring your fishing rod, the fishing ranges from good to great! We have several kayaks that you can use during your stay. Your vacation home is situated on the hill will allows for a beautiful panoramic waterfront view of the mighty St. Lawrence river. When raining there is an upstairs is an enclosed deck . Large patio with tables and chairs to have your meals outdoors and fire bowl on the patio or you can have a fire down by the river. Area attractions include- Fort Wellington (famous in the battle of 1812) in Prescott, Fort Henry in Kingston, Upper Canada village, Chrysler park, wild life Bird Sanctuary as well as within an hour of Ottawa The owners home is to the east and there is a shared dock and there is a screened in gazebo and open air gazebo for your use.

The owner was very helpful and went above and beyond to answer our questions about activities in the area.

We like to make sure that the cottage would meet an extended family or multiple friend get together needs. Having enough pots, pans, serving dishes, plates etc is important. We also agree that having comfortable and big enough beds are also important. Our family when renting away will often reject those homes with only double beds. We are glad that this was a feature you enjoyed. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our home and writing a review of the property. We look forward to your group renting again in the future.

                                                                    Perfect for our family gathering

                                                                    Super comfortable and lots of space. Kitchen well equipped with cooking gear and lots of plates and cutlery. You’ll need to bring your own spices and condiments. Truely lives up to its description. We’ll be back for future family stays.

                                                                    We were a large group of 6 adults and 6 kids aging from 7 to 13. We used the house as a base for our day trips to Ottawa and surroundings. The time we did spend in we had a chance to enjoy almost everything house had to offer: we cooked, we played piano, we played board games, did some BBQ (gas grill needs some TLC though), did some laundry, we soaked in the hot tub: we did it all! I wish it wasn't that windy, otherwise, we would do some kayaking too. Pease of advice to the future guests: arrive before the dusk. It's so easy to miss the house in the dark!

                                                                    We all enjoyed our stay at River Lee. It was just perfect for our annual WOW (Women on Wheels) get together which we have been doing for about the last 20 years. We used to bike but now we do other things. River Lee was one of the few places we stayed at where we each had our own bed and even our own bedroom. As well as all the bedrooms we really enjoyed the dining and living rooms with the large screen TV and especially the patio and hot tub. The kitchen was so well equipped for preparing our meals. Although we didn’t have time to kayak we did enjoy playing washer toss and croquet down by the river. The setting was so ideal. Randy was very helpful seeing to all our questions. We really appreciated Christine's reference to the books in the livingroom. Two of us live in century farm houses ourselves in other parts of Ontario and were very interested in the history of the house. There was lots to do in the area, so much that we couldn’t fit everything in. At Fort Wellington, even though there were no guided tours that day, they treated us royally and we learned more than a guided tour would have given us. Everyone was so friendly including the owners, daughter and dog, Laci. All in all a great place and vacation. It would be perfect for a family reunion with lots of equipment for kids to play on and even a piano. Gail on behalf of the WOW Girls

This home really lends itself well to these types of gatherings. Thank you so much for your review and although I realize your group likes to check out new areas of the province in addition to getting together to just have a fun please do visit us again. Thank you so much!!!!

It housed our large family very comfortably and enabled all of us to be in one space while visiting with family and friends in our hometown. We hosted a luncheon with extended family and each of us were very impressed with all the large rooms in the house. Our host Christine was absolutely amazing. She made sure our visit was comfortable and to our utmost satisfaction.

                                                                    We had a good time catching up with family in the area. It was our second time at this location. Children especially enjoyed improving their skills with the kayaks. Suggestion would be to prune vegetation around the entrance way and fix the cement on the stairs to make it easier for older visitors like myself. We all really appreciated that the house was large enough to allow us all some space. Lots to do in and around the area.
