Tremolo Island is just the place to sit back and enjoy the amazing views while you let your dog or dogs run free! A private one acre island with a large, open concept main house and a one room bunkie at the back of the island. It has all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. Herons, loons, otters and ducks are your constant companions. Pets are welcome, particularly dogs. The fishing is great! There is a canoe and 2 kayaks. Conveniences nearby. Located in the Rideau Lakes region!

The space
Tremolo Island is just that, an island, tucked back into a little bay at the eastern end of Sand Lake in Elgin, Ontario. The island has wooden walkways throughout, which makes getting around easy. The main house is open concept floor plan with a sleeping loft that makes you feel like you are in a tree house and another sleeping space downstairs. There is plenty of room for tents! There is a fully equipped kitchen, hot and cold running water, Wifi and a television for viewing DVD's. There is a bunkhouse or "bunkie" at the back of the island which sleeps 2 comfortably and with another loft space that can sleep 4 with sleeping bags and mats. Next to the bunkie is a firepit for roasting marshmallows and singing round the campfire. The main house has a wrap-around deck that reaches almost to the water, allowing you to feel that you are on a boat. The views are spectacular, sunsets the best. There is also a flower garden at the center of the island; it is another place to sit and relax.

Guest access
All guests have full access to the entire island which is about an acre in size but that has many little nooks to retreat to if you want privacy.

Other things to note
In order to get to the island you will need a boat!! We can offer our canoe that can be left for your use at the concession at the end of Glover Road. The island is literally 3 to 5 minutes from the concession. If you have a motorboat or rent one, you can get gas at Sand Lake Marine. You can also rent boats from Norris Bait & Tackle in Westport. 613-273-6462 is their number. They have all kinds of boats & will drop your boat at Sand Lake. If you have your own boat, you can put in at the public access area, the concession and leave your trailer there. It is a minute's ride to the island from there. Sand Lake is part of the Rideau Lakes region and the Rideau Canal connects the lake to many other lakes through a series of locks. The Canal runs from the Saint Lawrence River all the way to Ottawa. There is a canoe and two kayaks that can be used to explore.

The closest town is Elgin, about 10 minutes from Sand Lake Marine or the concession, where you can find Gordineer's Grocery Store, a hardware store, drug store and liquor store. Nearby is also Wendy's Farm Market, an organic farm with amazing produce, cheeses, meats and home-baked goods. The lovely town of Westport is only 30 minutes away by car but you could always wend your way up the Rideau Canal to Westport and see how the lake lock system works!
