About this listing
Our home is Cape Cod style with view of lake from bedroom and living areas. We are in a beautifully treed forest filled with chirping birds and chipmunks. We heat our home with a wood stove so you may wake up to a wood fire on those chilly mornings. You are welcome to join us in the living areas and on the deck as well.
The road is excellent for walking or biking. Hike to the nearby waterfall or see the local sites and nature trails. Whitewater rafting and kayaking is nearby. Madonna House and gift shop are nearby as well as the Mayflower Museum, Crooked Slide Park, Hinterland Beach and other beautiful places.
Your room is approx. 13'x13' and is on the upper west side of the house and is air conditioned and heated! It has just been renovated for your comfort. It has a new comfortable queen size bed with egyptian cotton sheets with blanket or down duvet, TV, DVD player and small fridge. However we do not have cable or satellite connection we do have an internet connection. We have a large selection of DVD's available. The bathroom is on the main floor and has a clawed foot bathtub with shower and also laundry facilities are in the bathroom. The bathroom is shared. We only accomodate 1-2 people in the room.
You will always find fresh baking (I love to bake) and breakfast is included as well as tea and great coffee! Breakfast always includes fresh fruit and if we have the time, we make it extra special. If we are working, the kitchen is yours to make your own breakfast. Judy has a great little restaurant(The Inn Town Restaurant) in Combermere with wonderful hot meals. This year, the Bent Anchor outdoor restaurant and bar promises to be open and is a great place for lunch or dinner during the summer months. Combermere is 7 min. away and Barry's Bay is a 20 min. drive. Algonquin Park is a 1 hr drive.
We have a 2 person Kayak available in which you can explore the beautiful shoreline. Fishing off the dock is good and there are people on the lake who do boat tours for a fee. Even when it is a busy long weekend, it is not too busy here, very peaceful.
This room is suitable for 1 or 2 people only.
And yes, we are very welcoming, friendly hosts who look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with Guests
We interact as much or as little as our guests would like.
It is a wonderful area to be in. The nature is amazing. Many say it is more beautiful than in Algonquin Park.
Your own vehicle is the only transportation.
No smoking in the house. Please be considerate and neat. As this is a residential neighborhood, please be polite to neighbors and no loundness after 11pm. Please do not pollute our lake or forests. We ask that you drive slowly on our road as there are children playing.
Basically, just treat others as you would like to be treated.
We had a great time at the Kamaniskeg Lake! Marg, Andy and the whole family (including sweet Rav - the dog!) are so nice, we felt at home right away.
The lake is beautiful and the family bondfire at night just next to it was so much fun! We even saw some shooting stars. Thanks for the pleasant stay and we really would recommend anyone to stay at your place!
Marg and Andy's place is lovely! We spend three enjoyable days at their house with the beautiful lake. the room is spacious and got everything we needed. Marg and Andy are very friendly, easy-going and hospitable. we had a delicious breakfast and a nice bond fire in the evening. we also tried their kayak on our last day which was a lot of fun!
we would definitely recommend this place and wish you and your family all the best!
We fell in love with the Kamaniskeg Lake. It is such a beautiful and peaceful area. Marg & Andy are wonderful hosts! They made us feel very welcome. We were provided with lots of information about the area, but also Algonquin Park, where we headed for the day. The listing is absolutely accurate, and we would come back any time! Best cottage trip so far.
We spent a night in Marg and Andy's house and it was absolutely amazing: great place, great house, and Marg and Andy (and Rav) are the best hosts you can imagine. The lake is beautiful and we loved using the kayak to go to the beach. We would have loved to spend more time there and we definitely want to come back if possible.
Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Marg et Andy au bord du Lac Kamaniskeg. Marg et Andy sont des hôtes très accueillants. Leur fille Jacqueline est très gentille. Nous avons passé un très bon moment en sa compagnie. Elle est de plus une excellente cuisinière : nous avons adoré ses petits déjeuners ! Rav est une grosse peluche adorable ! La maison est très jolie et la chambre très agréable. Nous avons pu prendre notre petit déjeuner avec vue sur un très beau lever de soleil au bord du lac : c'était très sympa ! Le lac et ses environs sont très jolis même en plein hiver !
Marg and Andy were great hosts! Not only was the location perfect for our fall time adventure but Marg and Andy were knowledgeable on the local area as well letting us know of some secret spots we could go search out that many people would have simply missed. The room was very clean and cozy and breakfast was simply phenomenal! We will definitely look to come back in the summer so we can take a dip in the lake! We will also miss Rav (the dog) who was simply the friendliest dog around and would tease you into giving him a belly rub! I highly recommend staying with Marg and Andy to anyone considering checking out Algonquin Park as the location is a convenient drive away to the East Gate.
My wife and me liked it to be there. We swam every morning in the
beautiful lake. Marg made us each morning wonderful canadien breakfast. We had interesting talks with Marg and Andy and meet there a lovely dog.
About the Host, Marg And Andy
We have been living on the lake for over 20 years now and absolutely love it. Marg is a nurse and esthetician and has a spa in the home on the lower level specializing in advanced foot care. Andy is a builder and has his office in the home. Most of the kids have flown the coop so we live here with our son Joey and his dog Rav. Every day we appreciate the beautiful surroundings and peace around us. We enjoy peaceful walks, swimming, boating, fishing and many other activities. Rav steals the show, he is an awesome dog and we are his people.
