Enjoy this comfortable, cozy cottage on a private Island with private road access. The 500 ft tree lined lane through marsh and waterway opens up to this beautiful and secluded place. The 1.5 acre property is well cared for with mature poplar, cedar, birch and willow trees providing shade, habitat and beauty. It’s easy to feel relaxed from the moment you step out and look around.

The cottage is a single story ranch with 2 bedrooms and a full curved window sunroom with a fold out sofa. The living room is comfortable with a large screen TV and an extensive DVD collection. The main bedroom is in the original sunroom with large windows that opens for a lake breeze and the sound of the poplar trees.

This is a great place for families or those seeking seclusion and relaxation. Children will be entertained follicking in the big pool, playing foosball on the outside table. The pool is 20’ x 40’ and 4½ ft deep throughout and is surrounded by a deck that has a wide clear view of the lake and marsh. There is also a large deck to the cottage door accented by a garden and large potted plants with a retractable sunshade pergola to enjoy BBQ’s and socializing. Enjoy the sunrise from the lake and the sunset from the fire pit.

There is generally a fresh and earthy light wind over the whole property that keeps mosquitoes at bay. The marsh that extends for acres on either side of the island, has diverse wildlife including beavers, muskrats, turtles and many birds such as; loons, osprey, blue herons and Canada geese.

The water from the dock is best for fishing and canoeing. It is weedy for about a 100 ft out which makes swimming better in the pool. There are some good swimming areas around the lake including a couple of shallow sand bars in the middle of the lake that are popular on hot days.

Dusk brings out the sounds of thousands of peepers and crickets (almost as special as the call of the loon). See the glow of fireflies and listen to the breeze rustling through the leaves. Gather around the fire pit surrounded by fallen trees and stumps for seating, perfect for marshmallow roasting.

Pigeon Lake is part of the vast Trent Waterway system with Buckhorn, Pigeon and Chemong lakes connected without locks.

REQUIREMENT: Before accepting or sending an offer, we will request necessary personal & group information.

Please read below for a “sample" Cottage Rental Agreement + Liability Waiver.

Terms and Conditions
(Specific terms and conditions may vary according to each cottage)

Cottage Cleaning
Unless extra cleaning service is purchased and specified in your contract, the cottage must be left in the same condition as you found it, ready for the next visitors (specific details will be in the final Cottage Rental Agreement).

All garbage and recycling disposal is the responsibility of the rental client. Garbage is to be placed in garbage bags/recycling boxes and stored safely so that animals cannot get into it. Information and location of the garbage dump specific to the cottage will be provided in the final Cottage Rental Agreement.

Water/Plumbing/Septic System
There are strict rules with regards to septic systems. Failure to follow these rules may result in thousands of dollars in repairs.
1. Only bodily waste materials and toilet paper can be flushed down the toilet. NO FEMININE/BABY PRODUCTS: TAMPONS, PADS, DIAPERS, WIPES.
2. Do not put any solid waste materials or grease down the sink drains.

As most cottages draw water from the lake and only some have water purification systems, you may wish to bring your own drinking water.

Camp/Cooking Fires
Small campfires are permitted as directed by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Please identify and adhere to local fire bans when imposed by local authorities (especially during dry/fire season). Do not burn plastic, tin cans, glass, or any other items that should not be in the fire. Always drown out your fire with plenty of water when left unattended, in particular before going to bed. For the use of firewood, there may be a charge from the owner, approx. $25.00 per cart/wheelbarrow.

If you plan on having any additional guests, you must request permission from the owner.

If there are any noise complaints from the neighbours &/or if the Police are called to the cottage for any negative reason, the owner will have the right to hold back some or all of your damage deposit.
