Guests have access to the whole property. They also have a private front deck and bbq. The dock and waterfront are shared with the family that owns the house, (parents and two kids 5 and 7). Guests are welcome to use the kayaks, canoe, paddle boards, swing set and climbers and trampoline. The house has a large eat in kitchen and comfortable sitting room with two couches and a great wood stove. The flooring is older and dated cupboards, but clean and tidy. There is a DVD player for the TV and lots of DVDs, but no cable. There is an auxiliary cable to hook up your device for music, and an HDMI cable so if you'd like to bring a laptop to hook up to the TV and speakers it is easy to do. There are a few board games and children's building blocks and big lego as well.

Where you’ll be

Port Carling, Ontario, Canada

Located right in Port Carling, there is a gradual hill down to the dock in a small bay on Silver Lake. The neighbors are great, a mix of cottagers and year round residents. Although right in town, when you are down at the dock you would never know it. The lake is shallow in the bay, so to swim we take the paddleboards or floating picnic table (with anchor and ladder) out to swim. The lake is deep and clean and not at all weedy once you paddle out of our small bay.

My husband and I and our two kids live in Port Carling year round. We run a rowing centre (Hatchets Rowing Centre), have some chickens, do lots of biking and outdoor activities and feel privileged to be able to share the places we love so much with people from around the world. Welcome!
