Bask in the most beautiful sunsets from this recently renovated three-bedroom, one-bathroom cozy classic cottage with a modern twist on the south shore of Rice Lake.

Oh, and don't forget the gorgeous boathouse deck.

Rice Lake boasts the best fishing in Ontario and we are conveniently located only 1 hour and 40 minutes east of the CN Tower. With quick commute options such as Taunton Road, 401, and 407 you will be on the dock relaxing in no time.

Ideal for two families or three couples (max. 6 adults, 2 children).

Sleeps 7 + 1 – two queen beds, a bunk bed (double on bottom, single on top) and a banquette that can be used as a single bed.
