The space

The large windows are facing south, so from sunrise till mid afternoon the light reflects off the lake and floods the space with shimmering light. The main level is self contained, living room, dining room, kitchen, deck off the living room, bathroom, master bedroom, half bath, and private screened porch. The loft has a double bed and double pull out coach.

We will be offering workshops on a continual basis initially in the following categories:

Stained Glass (portals)
Documentary Film Making
Illumination Art
(With combinations of the above)

The fee will include accommodations, delicious food and materials @ $70 per diem. Each workshop will be custom designed around the skills and interests of the participants.

Guest access

You will have full private access to the main cottage. Great swimming canoeing, cross country skiing, skating and snow shoeing.

Interaction with guests

Depending on the arrangements, we try to be sensitive to what the guests would like in regards to attention. Some guests come to the retreat for a private escape. Often guests come to enjoy the property and surroundings and interact with the artist who designed and created this space.

Other things to note

My guests over the years have been gracious and appreciative of this amazing space. I am grateful to Airbnb for this opportunity to share my wonderful environment with old and new friends.

The hot water heater is high efficiency "On Demand", so typically it runs hot and cold. I am designing a way to correct this. Any ideas?... so please be patient.

We just returned from Gregori's Otty Lake retreat. What a wonderful weekend! Gregori is a kind and friendly host and the space is beautifully eclectic, filled with Gregori's original art, intriguing old books and comfy furniture. The master bedroom is uniquely handsome and it, along with the upstairs loft is very comfortable. While the house is a perfect get away retreat the real star of the weekend was the landscape. The house blends into the surroundings and while sitting on the deck or screened porch you feel like you are in a tree house. The house is literally at the edge of Otty Lake on a small secluded bay and with almost no visible neighbors you feel like you are alone - just you and the beauty of nature. All about an hour from Kingston. We will certainly return. Thank you again Gregori!

We had a wonderful stay. We really enjoyed the balcony and the enclosed sunroom from the bedroom. The house is well equipped and the swimming to across the lake was great. We saw many visitors such as loons, great blue heron , kingfisher and whisper will. Thanks for sharing your home Gregori.

Gregori is a wonderful host, and his home is in a beautiful setting on the shore of a tranquil lake. The house is truly an artist's conception - from the Art Nouveau window designs that frame the view, to the inspiring architectural elements like an antique cut glass window that reflects the ripples of the lake water on the bedroom ceiling. Two porches (one off the bedroom, one of the living / dining room) provide a peaceful space for relaxation while gazing out on the trees, the lake, and the sky reflected in the lake. A dock on the natural shore, as well as a canoe, provide access out onto the water. Swimming off the rocky shore is gorgeous, and water shoes make for easy access. The Lake is beautiful to explore by canoe - lots of inlets in a larger lake. The forested road near the cottage makes for lovely walks, cycling, running. I imagine that all of the seasons are beautiful at Gregori's lakeside retreat. Guaranteed peace and quiet! Close enough to bigger towns like Perth for provisions - but be forewarned, you will not want to leave once you get to Otty Lake. BTW - ask Gregori to show you his stained glass work shop. You'll get to see where the magic happens.

What a beautiful gem in the woods. The cabin was much larger than expected with a deck off of the living room as well as a screened in deck off of the bedroom. It had everything we needed to spend a nice relaxing weekend away from our busy life! Gregori was a great host and very flexible with check-in and check-out time. We hope to be back soon!

I am an artist/designer and Creative Director of Studio55 Productions in Delta, Ontario. Being an Art Nouveau Artist, I appreciate every detail from fashion to environmental design. My home studio on Otty Lake is in a beautiful and reclusive location and I enjoy the opportunity to provide accommodations to travellers and other artists, world wide. I am passionate about film making and how Digital Media can transcend all Arts Disciplines.

We offer escorted tours to other studios, galleries, museums, eco villages and TISARANA, our local Buddhist Monestary in the region.
