The space
First about us--

I am a psychologist from Philadelphia who discovered Bobs Lake quite accidentally, when my oldest son, who is now 41 was 4 years old. I had never seen anything so beautiful and our whole family has not missed a summer since. We rented for a decade at what was then Morters. When told we could no longer bring our dog, we bought a little swarth of land on a nearby island. I loved Morters so much that I had to be certain I could swim from there to the island , which I was able to do.


In 2006 we heard that Morters had been cut in half and half of it sold. When the remainder came up for sale, in 2010, Chuck Morter gave us a mortage to help us buy it. Fixing it up became a labor of love that has gone on now for 9 years. We renovated the cabins, built The Great House so that we could host weddings and retreats, and added new docks, a playground, hot tubs, and a fleet of boats to rent.

Our family comes every summer. My youngest son loves the island property and stays there for a week with his friends—he fell in love there to the woman who is now his wife, and his oldest son, almost 3, took his first steps in the living room. Over the years, we slowly built up the island compound, - adding a guest cottage, adult tree house, basketball court and last summer—a hot tub.

Our entire family – now wit 5 grandchildren, stay at the old Morters—now Bobs Lake Cottages & Escapes, for a week every summer—as do our doggies—we are very pet friendly.



NOW FOR THE SPACE

AMAZING lake front compound on Ontario’s largest wilderness lake. Sleeps up to 35 people if you rent entire compound—you get The Lake House [4/2), The Little House (1/1) The Eagles Nest (4/2) and The Great House {6/5}. All with modern kitchens, 25 feet of glass facing the lake, large decks, a/c, Four have modern Malm gas fireplaces. Modern 4 piece bathrooms, tiled. Modern kitchens with dishwashers and new everything. Kayaks, canoes, paddle boat, paddle board for your use. Pontoon, speedboat, fishing boats to rent


Shared on the property are canoes, kayaks, a paddleboat, stand up paddle boards. We have 3 docks, 2 sandy beaches, a hot tub, fish cleaning hut and playground for young children.

You can rent motor boats- from 9.9 hp alum fishing boat, pontoon boat, speed boat.

IT IS MY PREFERENCE TO RENT THIS COTTAGE BY THE WEEK IN HIGH SEASON, ESPECIALLY FOR INQUIRIES THAT COME WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE RENTAL DATE. I WILL TAKE 3 DAY WEEKEND REQUESTS OR WEEKDAY ONLY REQUESTS ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS. IT IS ALSO REQUIRED THAT I CHARGE 13% HST, TAX TO THE CANADIAN GOVT. THAT WILL BE AN EXTRA CHARGE OVER THE AIR BNB CHARGE.

We are in the wilderness with the cleanest lake you can imagine. That said, there is a winery 20 minutes away and the cute town of Westport 23 minutes away. Perth, 45 minutes is a great day trip
