This 4-season heated and air-conditioned log-construction home is located just steps from beautiful Norcan Lake and 15 minutes from the Calabogie Peaks Ski and Golf area. The Lake House is ideally suited for family gatherings, reunions and larger groups. The interior is beautifully finished with many exposed beams and the extensive use of wood throughout. A large covered deck offers a beautiful view of Norcan Lake and there is lots seating available

There is excellent fishing in season for bass, walleye and pike and the many pan-fish provide lots of fun for the children. A 13 lb 8 oz small-mouth bass was caught just up the lake some three years ago. It would have been the new world's record had the angler not chosen to eat it.

The variety of wildlife you may see is amazing. Birders will not be disappointed with the many hummingbirds, grosbeaks, sparrows (all kinds) finches, warblers, ducks, eagles (Golden and Bald), partridge, wild turkeys and herons. Please see our website at for some beautiful photographs, many of which have been taken by our guests. The safe sandy beach is great for building sandcastles, wading and swimming. Two complimentary paddle-boats and a canoe are provided on a first come basis. A horseshoe pit is also available for your enjoyment and there is plenty of lawn on which to play badminton, volleyball or toss a Frisbee.
