Our house is a wonderful place to enjoy being on a lake - details in next section. The owners live in a tiny house in the backyard and are available if needed. A cat lives in the house when it is not rented and is on the property when guests are in the house. There is no landline but cell phone service is good. Internet is sometimes slow. It is not a good fit for large groups who are noisy or families with very energetic children because we have close neighbours who enjoy peace and quiet.

The space
This is a beautiful house on Lower Beverly Lake, forty minutes from Kingston, Ontario, and an hour and a half from Ottawa. It is a perfect place for a quiet family retreat. There is a full size deck with barbecue. The house is fifty feet from the shore and dock with a beautiful green lawn and a outdoor fire pit. Canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and a rowboat, which can be used for fishing, are all available at no cost. Adult and children's lifejackets are provided. You can swim in the beautiful clear water by rowing out past the lakeshore weeds to a raft. There is a small sandy beach and wading area for kids.

The tastefully decorated house has a main floor with one bedroom with hotel quality queen bed, full bath with soaking tub and walk-in shower. Enjoy a gas fireplace with beautiful ledge stone surround and lake view. Large fully equipped kitchen with gas range and island with seating for two. There is also room to sleep another 4 people in the basement which has one bedroom with a queen bed and one bedroom with two single beds. The basement also has a small kitchenette, living area, and a bathroom with shower.

The nearest small town is Lyndhurst, which is ten minutes away. It has a post office, one small convenience store, a great ice cream shop, and two places to eat. Seeley's Bay, Delta, Athens or Elgin are other nearby towns for larger grocery stores and an LCBO. All are about 25 minutes away. There is a lovely market only 10 minutes away where you can buy organic fruits and vegetables, grass fed meats of all kinds, homemade ice cream and much more.

There are cottages right next door and the people who live in these cottages come to the lake for peace and quiet. We ask our guests to be respectful of this fact. Our cottage is not a good choice for those who want a place where they can play loud music or have loud gatherings around the campfire.

The setting is beautiful. Loons and herons, beavers and ospreys are regular visitors. You may also see an occasional bald eagle. Charleston Lake Provincial Park, where you will find great hiking trails and a sandy beach, is only a 20 minute drive. There is also a small park just 5 minutes away with a sandy beach and playground. There is a small entry fee at both parks. Thousand Islands boat tours are available at Gananoque which is only 45 minutes from the house.

Guest access
Guests have access to use of boats (3 kayaks, 2 canoes, 2 stand-up paddle boards, rowboat and pedal boat), swimming raft, outside barbecue, outside fire place, life jackets, wi-fi (weak signal), fully equipped upstairs kitchen.

Other things to note
John and I rent our home in order to raise money for our three month yearly stay in Malawi, Africa. Our organization is called Impact Malawi and we build nursery schools, fix wells, sponsor secondary students and build fuel efficient rocket stoves. When you rent from us you are helping to make an Impact on the lives of the needy people in this poor Third World country.

We do have neighbour cottages right next to ours. It is important to respect their privacy and desire to enjoy the peacefulness of living on a lake. Please do not walk on other people's property. Please remember that noise travels over water and try not to be too loud while playing outside or enjoying a campfire.

We love our home on the lake and enjoy every season and opportunity it offers. We ski and skate in the winter and kayak and swim all summer. When we are not on the lake, we are living in Malawi where we do work with villages that focuses on clean water and education. We would love to share our beautiful lake house with the Airbnb community.

During your stay
Typically we will wait for their arrival to meet them and show them around the house and property. Any other interaction would be at their invitation. During the months that we are not in Malawi doing missions work, we will be living in a tiny house in the back yard of the Lake House. It is very important to us that our guests not feel intruded upon. During your stay we will either be inside our tiny house or off the property. However, our cat will possibly be roaming around outside. We will not be using the boats or entering the lake from our property, unless the guests are ok with this. If we are both in the tiny house we may, upon request from our guests, take them on a tour of the lake in our motor boat.
