Amazing waterfront cottage, completely renovated in 2016. Paradise! Our cottage, "The Gathering Cottage", is the perfect place to get together with family and friends. 200 ft of park-like shore on beautiful Sand Lake (part of the Rideau Canal System). Fun & space for everyone. Rental includes a canoe, 4 kayaks and a stand-up paddle board for our guests to explore the lake.
Our retreat on Sand Lake is a place to disconnect and be together. Sure there’s WIFI and a TV/DVD but that's not what cottage life is about. We have lots of games to play, and plenty of spots to hangout, relax or curl up with a good book - just disconnect! All of that before you even hit the lake, the dock or have a campfire.
This property was completely renovated from top to bottom in 2016.
This is your chance to share a cottage with friends, or get together with extended family, and allow everyone to still have their own space!
Amazing park-like setting with almost 200 feet of waterfront in Powell’s Bay of Sand Lake, on the Rideau Canal system. We have renovated this cottage to cater to large family groups or to share with friends so you can comfortably sleep up to 12 in beds and room for more on pull outs.

Third floor loft featuring 3 single beds (two open to become king size if needed) and a single sized pull-out bed
Not to mention the new double pull-out in the main floor TV room for a 5th sleeping space
As beautiful as the inside of this cottage is, it is outdoors that you will want to spend all your time! Our large lot with a gentle slope to the lake gives ample room to play Frisbee, bocce, or relax. Swim or fish right off the dock. Enjoy a campfire right down at the lake or hang out on the patio area up at the house.
We have 4 kayaks (two sit-on-top, two sit-in), a canoe and a stand-up paddle board so the whole gang can explore the lake. For guests with a boaters license we also offer the option to rent our 14' Smokercraft during your stay.
Right across the bay you’ll find a great park for the kids to play. This park has a play structure and is home to Rideau Lakes Daycamp.
Only 5 minutes away is Elgin Ontario offering a super little grocery store, LCBO, bowling alley, and some amazing pizza. Right across the road is Sand Lake Campground so you can get ice, cold drinks, bait or movies in their little store. The campground is a great neighbour, most of the sites are seasonal campers so it is calm and quiet. They do offer a few nightly sites, perfect if you have extra family/friends who want to camp close by while you are enjoying the cottage.
20 minutes to beautiful Westport for amazing shopping and 7 different ice cream shops for those rainy days!
Super easy access to the cottage - you’re 5 minutes off highway 15 (no winding camp roads). Renters are under 1.5 hours to downtown Ottawa and 45 minutes to Kingston.
