3 Bedroom, pet friendly lakeside cottage.
Hello there! Whilst born in Ontario (Kingston), I have grown up in the Montreal region, Sydney, Australia and the midlands in the UK. Coupled with working in the hi tech industry I have had the opportunity to travel widely and of course see many sights. I live in the area of the cottage and enjoy the tranquility of the wildlife, the peace that comes with sitting by the water enjoying the lake vista.
Paul purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Paul chose Carleton Place
The attraction to this location was primarily a property with a great view on the water and within in spitting distance (well maybe a bit further than that) of Ottawa, the Nations Capital (30 km from the outskirts)

Beautiful and serene
The perfect spot for getting away from the city boasting both beauty and serenity while still having accessibility to the amenities of town. The cottage is inviting, comfortable and very well equipped with the waterfront view being unsurpassed. A wonderful respite from the chaos and noise of the city. In the words of John Candy, "...lovely, lovely, lovely".
For those that enjoy relaxing in a natural setting
A wonderful relaxing cozy cottage. The owner was so welcoming and was very helpful with recommendations of places to see in the area. The cottage was spotless and so comfortable.
The water was still warm enough for me to go wading in the swim area as well as a tour in the paddle boat.
The deck was a perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee...and evening beverage. Watching out over the lake at the boats and wildlife. Simply Lovely. I will return next year!
You folks are welcome any time!
Quiet Lakeside Serenity
The best part of this property is its location very close to Mississippi Lake in a quiet community. On the cool days we loved having a wood fire in the stove. Fans were welcome on the hot ones. Watching ducks and geese was relaxing.
This cottage is very old and needs maintenance. The owner is friendly and helpful in any way needed.
Very small cottage, rundown place with obvious neglect to the property by owner. Paul lives next door but you won't know it from the lack of care the cottage gets. We found mouse shit under the place mats on the table after getting the keys from Paul and the cottage is now ready. The carpets are done, and the deck is dangerous and uneven - not suitable for small children. Furniture is very dated, I know it's a cottage but to store old broken furniture in a room brings only one word to mind - hoarder.
Overall - I would not recommended to stay here.
It’s extremely unfortunate that the renters found mouse droppings in one spot at the cottage. The place is always absolutely scrupulously cleaned between renters!
The cottage is old with dated furnishings yet is well equipped and comfortable. It is most suited to those wishing to enjoy the lake view, the water and the tranquility, at a great price and one of the few that is pet friendly.
The cottage (and deck) is maintained and repaired every year at the beginning of the season to ensure it is safe and inspected after each renter for any issues. I am pleased this has been drawn to my attention so that I can inspect the deck in great detail, to see what could possibly be dangerous.
There is a private store room in the cottage, generally used to store antiques that I will be repairing and restoring in the future.
Great location, comfortable, rustic cottage, great host
We can't say enough about the location of this cottage ...it is beautiful. The swimming was great and the water warm. The cottage is bigger than it first looks and well equipped and excellent value for the price.
We hope to return next year.
