Also, on the dock there is a storage shed that has a dry bar with bar fridge and a serving window.
This property is unlike any other available on the Rideau, a great place for family reunions, fishing derbies, conferences, weddings and corporate retreats!
A list of Caterers can be provided, and a list of photographers in the area if you are looking to book a wedding.

Dorothy’s Lodge is located conveniently at the halfway point between Toronto and Montreal, 40 minutes from the Canada/USA border, only one hour and 10 minutes from Ottawa, making it an excellent place for extended families to congregate.
Please note that we rent only the whole property out to one group/booking at a time.
