Charming Cottage on the Rideau
We spend a week at this charming little cottage on Lower Rideau Lake in September 2020. The cottage is simple, but very nice and well appointed. It would be perfect for older adults or a small family. The screened-in porch / dinning room and the front porch were our two favourite locations! The location was perfect with quick access to Smith Falls and Perth. Having Netflix was a nice bonus. Thanks Philip & Rita.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely two weeks
We had a terrific time at this property. A very cottage-y cottage right on the water. My daughter enjoyed jumping off the dock, though it was too shallow to dive. You are close to neighbours, but they were quiet and kept to themselves. The area is full of fun junk shops and farm produce. Lovely drives and good walking. It does get hot on muggy summer evenings, but there are lots of fans and the lake is right there for an evening dip! it was also a bit buggy in the evenings, making it impossible to sit out on the porch - it would be great if that could be screened in - in the meantime, bring bug spray. All in all, a wonderful stay during quite a stressful, Covid Summer!
