Great, rustic and wild cottage on Big Rideau. Fantastic swimming, beautifully clear water, abundant wildlife and well equipped with kayaks, swimming toys, a rowboat, canoes and lots else you'd use to have a great off-the-grid vacation!

Rustic, artistic, charm. Surrounded by natural beauty. Home was as described - there are a few quirks. Mike was a great host. Delivered us to the island personally and gave us the full tour. We'd love to stay here again!
