Lakefront guesthouse, beautiful gardens with a private dock. This one bedroom, newly renovated holiday cottage offers guests the chance to enjoy lakefront living with remarkable views and breathtaking sunsets. Self contained guesthouse, full kitchen, three piece washroom & in-suite laundry. Close proximity to parks, shops & dining. Easy access to the Island highway. Minutes to all city amenities. Long Lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking & the best sandy beach around!

The space
The garden patio of the guest house and the main house have some separation but don’t have any gates in-between them. We have a very friendly, medium sized French bull dog named Karl that may come and say hi when you stay.

You are more than welcome to take a walk through the gardens to our private dock and enjoy the view of the crystal clear waters of Long Lake.

We are next door to a beautiful lakeside park with two public docks and large sandy beach with a roped off swimming area. Loudon Park at Long Lake offers picnic tables, a small playground for children and lake side walking trail. The lake is great for swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing or just floating around in the sun.

We have three boys ages 10, 9 and 2. Although you have complete privacy, if you take a walk through the gardens to the dock you may run into one of them playing in the yard.
