Overview
Once you cross the five-arch bridge in Pakenham and take the turning signposted White Lake, you’ll really know you’re on vacation.  Only an hour from Ottawa and with picturesque small towns within a short driving distance, this location will delight activity lovers, country enthusiasts and water babies alike.  And this dazzling ‘cottage’ is pretty spectacular too with its bright, crisp, clean feel contrasting with the green and blue of the surrounding forest and lake.

Architecturally designed and stylishly presented, this property could grace the cover of an interiors magazine, but it’s easy to feel at home in the spacious accommodation.   The first thing you’ll notice is the light filled space, which together with an abundance of white creates an enjoyable cool ambiance for the hot summer weeks. 

The main floor has a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living room with comfortable furniture, a dining table with seating for 10 along with several stools at the breakfast bar.  The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances, and gourmet lovers will enjoy spending time preparing meals in the well-designed space.  Doors open onto a sun room and then onto the deck overlooking the lake – the fabulous views will take your breath away.

Up to date technology is evident throughout the cottage from the geothermal heating and cooling system to the entertainment systems and hi-speed internet access.  Hobbyists will love the office/hobby room on the upper level with wide workspace for computing, quilting etc, while games/card players have the table on the mezzanine to use if they want to play or do a jigsaw in the evening.

There are two bedrooms on the lower floor with a bathroom and separate shower room.  A walkout to the waterfront means guests on this level can take a quick run out for a morning swim without disturbing anyone else. The main floor has a large bedroom and bathroom, while the upper floor has a large master suite with private bathroom.

And then there’s the outside with fabulous waterfront for diving off the dock, sitting out to enjoy the sunset or wading out in the shallow area.  Enjoy swimming, fishing or just give up any idea of being active and laze in the sun all day in this very private space.   Check the links below for things to do and see in the area – it’s a vacationers playground!

Property Manager

We are a friendly, family oriented rental agency here in Ontario. We can't wait to match up our gorgeous cottages to families and small groups who share our love of cottage country. We've personally visited every property (it's a tough job, but someone has to do it!), and can share our thoughts on whether it's the right one for your group. All our cottages are privately owned by people who want to share their little piece of paradise with their guests. We make sure they have all the bells and whistles you need to make a great vacation, and ensure each cottage meets our standards - and your expectations. We love questions so let us know what you are looking for, and we'll make sure your dream vacation becomes a reality.

Composition of Parties and Age Limits
We primarily provide family holidays and it is our policy not to accept bookings from groups of young people under the age of 25 and some groups comprising all-adults. This policy is not intended to be discriminatory, but is merely to protect our cottage owners' interests and to meet the requirements of their rental insurance policies.
Payment Policy
Reservations shall be confirmed in writing by the Agency on payment of a deposit and applicable booking fee by credit card or cheque.

Receipt of any deposit prior to the Agency's written confirmation of the reservation shall not constitute acceptance of any booking.

The balance shall be payable 45 days prior to the commencement of the vacation by cheque, money order or email money transfer.

Where the Rental Period commences within 45 days of the reservation, or is less than a week in duration, full payment is required on booking.

All payments shall be made to the Agency by credit card, cheque, money order or email money transfer. (Visa or Mastercard only)

Once a reservation is received and accepted by The Agent, The Guest is liable for payment of the balance of the rental fee, plus any additional charges, 45 days before occupation of the property. Non-payment by the due date will be treated as a cancellation and the deposit will be forfeited.
Refundable Damage Deposit
The Lead Guest agrees to provide a valid credit card number as a guarantee for up to $1,500:

To pay all outstanding long distance phone charges, overage on WiFi usage in excess of the stated limits, and accept any and all liability for any damage beyond normal wear and tear (for those items not covered by the Accidental Damage Protection Plan) during the term of the Rental Period.
Cancellation Policy
Once a reservation has been accepted and confirmed, a cancellation can only be made in accordance with the terms below:
