Welcome to Sand Lake, part of the historic Rideau Waterway, recognized as a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Our comfortable, water front, cottage is located just above the wonderful upper locks at Jones Falls. It is located in a quiet setting on the lower end of Sand Lake, about 40 minutes by car to Kingston. You can swim, use the boat provided, fish, or just read a good book. Since the cottage is on the Rideau System, you can tour other lakes and towns on the water, by using the locks built in the 1800's.

The cottage is an open design, with a great room off the kitchen, and a sun porch that catches the breezes that are always present close to the water. Sleeping quarters include two bedrooms ( one queen and two singles ), and a futon in the great room.
We suggest you bring your own bottled water for cooking and drinking.


The cottage is about 30 feet from the lake, and has two docks available. The ground is gently sloping from the cottage to the water and docks, making walking to the water very easy.

The Rideau is known for its fishing, and boating activities. A tour through the locks by boat is also a very popular tourist activity. Swimming in the lake is great fun, since all you have to do is walk down to the dock and jump in! Take a driving tour to Kingston (~40minutes South) or Ottawa (~1hour North), or just explore some of the small towns in between.
