The space
The cottage is located on Scott Island on the beautiful Clear Lake. Clear Lake is situated along the historic Rideau Canal between Chaffey's and Newboro Locks.

The cottage property is expansive offering a waterfront sundeck, swimming in the lake, horseshoe pit, BBQ, picnic table, fire pit, and lots of space for outdoor activities.

The rental includes use of a 16ft fishing boat (Pleasure Craft Operator Card required). There are five connected lakes (accessible without use of the locks) with plenty of fish for catching (fishing license required).

The cottage itself has a large sunroom with dining table and two couches, both of which pull out into double beds. There are two bedrooms, both with double beds, living room, 3-piece washroom, and fully equipped kitchen.

Guest access
Guests will have full access to the cottage and cottage property including a waterfront sundeck, BBQ, and fire pit.

Guests will also have access to a fishing boat to come and go from the cottage as they please. It is a quick 5-minute boat ride across Clear Lake from the mainland to the cottage.

At the boathouse on the mainland, a dedicated boat slip and two tandem parking spaces are provided. Additional parking spaces available for a fee.

Other things to note
The tap water at the cottage is lake water and should only be used for washing - it cannot be drank. Please bring bottled water for drinking.

The cottage kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge (top half freezer), stove, microwave, pots & pans, dishes, and cutlery. As well as, a toaster, crock pot, hot air popcorn machine, blender, mixer, coffee machine, and Keurig (note: only bottled water can be used in the coffee machines).

The rental also includes household toiletries (4 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towel, dish soap). However, linens, towels, personal toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.), and drinking water are not included.

**COVID-19 Update: We have implemented physical distancing measures and additional cleaning protocols as follows:

- Bruce will meet cottagers at the boathouse, but will only interact from a distance.

- Cottagers will be limited to one family from the same household.

- To increase safety for the next renters and ourselves, cottagers are required to bring supplies to do a cleaning upon departure. This is in addition to our cleaning between rentals.**

We love to spend as much time as we can up at the Lake, sitting by the water enjoying our morning coffee or catching the night's supper. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
