Breathtaking 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, open concept home on a tranquil lake only 30 minute drive from Kingston or Westport. Kayak or swim in clear deep water, or skate, X Ski or snow shoe. Rent short or long term, fully furnished.
My home features 3 large Bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. Each bedroom has a patio door with a deck overlooking 14 Island Lake. The Master bedroom is on the main floor of the house and the Master bathroom features a large walk in shower and a heart shaped Jacuzzi tub. The other two bedrooms are located in the lower level and share a large bathroom with an oversized tub/shower. There is a third two piece bathroom on the main floor together with the washer and dryer. There are two fire places, one in the living room on the main floor and one in the Master Bedroom. The lower level Recreation Room has a double bed sized pull out couch, a pool table, and the patio door leads to the 5 person hot tub. All decks have comfortable seating areas. There is also in floor heating in the lower level, as well as central heating and air conditioning throughout the house.
The waterfront has a large deck which seats 8 people comfortably and a dock with a swim ladder. There is a set of stairs with 4 landings leading down to the lake. The shoreline is extremely steep, and the water depth off the dock is approximately 50 feet.
There are no lights at the lake front, hence please use at your own risk at all times.
There are two kayaks and life vests at the lake deck, also a very large surf board. The lake is private and has no public boat access.
Interaction with Guests
I like to welcome all guests at the time of arrival and give a personal tour of the home to explain how all the high tech appliances work. (Believe me just the kitchen stove can be a challenge, not to mention the fire places, TV's and hot tubs.)
I expect that guests leave my home in the same condition and contact me (the house phone is available for guests to use) if there is any questions or concerns at anytime during their stay. I am always happy to assist in anyway possible.
The home is located 15 minutes car drive to the nearest store like Foodland, Bank or LCBO.
There is lots of parking at the house, but no public transit available. After booking and close to the occupancy date, I will send the driving directions to my house via this site.
Other Things to Note
I don't mind short term bookings, but I dislike it when it is booked for a 'large group of weekend party guests'. I accept up to 6 people.
I appreciate if long term guests keep the house in clean condition during their stay.
Romy made us feel most welcome even after our 12 hour journey from Scotland. The house is immaculate, the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The house is well kitted out with everything you need and more. Romy had left a fantastic welcome pack of food and encouraged us to use her wide store cupboard. The neighbourhood is quiet, peaceful and tranquil. We had a fantastic reunion with our family from BC and would highly recommend this home. Thank you so much for our stay
The house was wonderfully situated in the woods with private access to the lake.
Inside very spacious and cosy, very well equipped kitchen , with lots of stuff we were allowed to use. Romy is such a kind, loveable and helpful host. In advance she mailed us detailed info with directions to her house and upon arrival we just called her and she came over and gave us the grand tour of the house and showed us how everything worked. She even brought us fresh farm eggs.
Furthermore she drove in front of us to show us the nearest supermarket 10-15 minutes away from the house.
Great place to stay, we can really recommend this place for a quiet relaxing holiday away from everything. We had a very homely feeling.
Romy took the time to give us a tour of her beautiful home. Everything was as she posted and more so. Romy gave a detailed explanation of how everything worked and where items could be found. We were a party of five and had a fabulous time using the hot tub, pool table and home theatre. The dock was amazing as we took full advantage of the kayaks and water board. The scenery is amazing and time goes by slowly. We couldn't ask for a better vacation and would love to come back.
Romy was very welcoming - she met us at the cottage and showed us around giving us very clear instructions.
Romy and her home were amazing. We had seven girls stay for two nights and it was the perfect girls' weekend away. The house itself is gorgeous, and it has everything you'll need - even condiments and spices for cooking. Romy was accessible leading up to our stay and answered all of our questions. When we "checked in", she was there to give a tour and explain how everything worked. Should we have needed her, she was just a call away and a 30 minute drive. The swimming was glorious. It was truly ideal and we will definitely be back!
Romy was very friendly and fast in all communications prior to our visit. I was co-hosting our 3rd annual girls weekend getaway, Romy met a few of the ladies to show them around and let them know a few things about the place. It is a beautiful , fully equipped house that is clean and private situated on a gorgeous lake. We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway. We all had a great time and hope to return next spring.
