It's rare to find a cottage that is so perfectly comfortable, well-equipped and family-friendly that also happens to be on its own private island. Located in rural Ontario’s largest wilderness lake, Bobs Lake, our cottage is midway between Toronto and Montreal. Family-owned for over 60 years, this beautiful cedar cottage is situated on a private 150-acre island.

Note: This is a personal cottage which is only rented a few weeks per year to responsible families and adults. Longer bookings are preferred. Please check out our website for more photos and information about the cottage and surrounding areas: https://islandcottagerental.weebly.com

Interior

This lovely bungalow style cottage on BobsLake, in the South Frontenac area, is on a flat lot, ideal for children/elderly. The building is very clean with 4 bedrooms. It sleeps 9 comfortably but you can fit a couple more, especially kids – 1 queen bed, 5 singles beds, 1 double pullout couch (linens, blankets and pillows are provided). The kitchen features: electric oven/stove, dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, large water dispenser, microwave, toaster oven, outdoor propane barbecue, and enough dishes and cooking tools to entertain large groups. The dining room table seats about 12. For nighttime and indoor entertainment, there is a large selection of games. We also have satellite TV, a DVD player, and a selection of movies. Mid-summer can get very hot, you may be thankful for the air conditioning and fans.

Exterior

The grounds feature a mix of shaded areas from large trees as well as a lot of sunny spots to enjoy the summer sunshine. The large deck has comfortable lounge furniture and a clear view of the lake and shoreline – watch the family swim and play while sitting back with a cocktail. There is a well-maintained, large grassy front yard where you can relax on the hammock or play badminton/volleyball. There is so much to do! The water is clean, great for swimming and fishing. Swim off the dock or for shallow entry, take a dip from the beach. Bobs Lake is a very popular fishing destination. You can go fishing by boat or right off the dock. Fish species include Lake Trout, Largemouth Bass, Panfish (Perch, Crappie), Smallmouth Bass, Walleye. Bobs Lake is big and there are many areas to explore (we have a canoe for those who prefer a slower pace). A good portion of the neighbouring land is unoccupied (Crown land) and the nearby cottages are few in numbers, giving the Island quite a remote-oasis feeling. On an island so large, you can hike through the fields and wooded areas. The island is great for dogs and children since there are few neighbours to bother so they can roam and explore.
