Fantastic beach Retreat on Devil Lake, close to historic Westport Ontario!
This property has the best view on the lake with its view from 80 feet above the lake, looking out at the 20+ islands on the clear waters of Devil Lake. This property has a beautiful natural sandy beach that is completely pivate! Escape to this property and forget all of your worries as you relax on this secluded retreat!
Please note that the pictures were taken in the fall when the water is lower. The Lake level is usually higher early in the summer, and in June and early July the water is high enough to cover the sand up to the shoreline.
The Rideau Canal is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and was rated #2 as an exceptional historic site destination by National Geographic.
The Rideau Lakes Region is a great place to explore. You can take advantage of the great fishing, boating, swimming, water-skiing, or lock through the historic canal system to the other attached lakes and towns. In the surrounding towns and cities there are also lots of activities, and events to participate in including, golf, historic tours, boat tours, shopping restaurants, parties, and lots more!
This cottage is conveniently located not far off of highway #15 at the halfway point between Toronto and Montreal, 40 minutes from the Canada/USA border, and only one hour and 10 minutes from Ottawa.

“Great, remote cottage for vacation for a large group”

Two levels, each with its own bathroom, perfect for two families. Fully-equipped kitchen. Excellent swimmable beach that was great for little ones. The descent to the beach is fairly steep, but I just looked at it as exercise.
Property manager was excellent - came to let us in the boat shed when we couldn't find the key.
If we return to the region, we would definitely rent this property again.

We stayed here from June 28 - July 5, 2014 with our two children and their families - a total of 6 adults and 4 children under 9. The cottage had plenty of space for all of us, indoors and out (two expansive patios with an impressive vista overlooking Devil Lake). The steep path down to the lake was strenuous, but the private beach, dock and water toys made it well worth several trips a day. The kids especially loved it! (All ten of us!)
In addition to the comfortable nature of the cottage and the private sand beach, other selling points for us were the totally secluded nature of the place (no immediate neighbours) and the superb water quality of Devil Lake itself (spring fed). Being only 10-15 minutes from Westport and Newboro was also a plus for shopping, golf, ice cream treats etc.
Issues that came up were minor - the screen on the upstairs bathroom window needs some attention, as does the buckling laminated flooring in the master bedroom. And a problem with the water supply near the end of our stay was handled with a simple phone call to the agent.

Very private and peaceful. Extraordinary view from cottage. At the beginning of aug, the beach was still covered with water; nevertheless, it was ideal for 3 year old grandson to play in. Fully furnished, very clean, lots of books, fishing gear available, canoe and kayaks top quality and lots of fun on the water, fire pit, and much more. Downstairs area has warping floor and there is a water stain on the ceiling of one washroom; otherwise, quite good. Path to water is steep but 66 year old grandparents and 3 year old grandson managed it easily. Outdoor patio catches breeze which keeps mosquitos down. We will rent here again.
