This cute log cabin is in a private setting on the very popular Opinicon Lake. The screened-in porch across the front of the cottage provides a comfortable vantage point to view the beauty of the lake. Enjoy fishing and water sports from this private cottage set back in the trees.

The Opinicon Lake has been revered for decades for its great bass and pike fishing and beautiful scenery. This cabin provides an idyllic stop over for boaters traveling through the Rideau Canal, a family vacation on an annual fishing trip or a couple looking for a romantic outdoor getaway. Sit and watch the stars as you roast marshmallows in the fire pit by the lake, or visit the historic towns in the area. Chaffey's Lock and Davis Lock can be accessed by boat from Opinicon Lake.

The Rideau Lakes Region is a great place to explore. You can take advantage of the great fishing, boating, swimming, water-skiing, or lock through the historic canal system to the other attached lakes and towns. In the surrounding towns and cities there are also lots of activities, and events to participate in including, golf, historic tours, boat tours, shopping restaurants, parties, and lots more!

This very private log cabin retreat is located not far off of highway #15 at the halfway point between Toronto and Montreal, 40 minutes from the Canada/USA border, and only one hour and 25 minutes from Ottawa. A great place for extended Families to congregate.

Take the kayaks or canoe out to the clear water for a swim from the floating swim-mat, or go to the next door campground (two minute drive) to swim at the beach!

No open bar? No suis-chef? No on-call masseuse? How can people live like this??

We'll be back next year!

My husband and I spent a lovely, relaxing week at Lakewood August 16-23, 2014. We had just completed a wonderful, but action-packed, week with our children, their spouses, our grandchildren and assorted friends at Dorothy’s Lodge. The peace and quiet at Lakewood was a welcome change of pace. Our family has been going to the Chaffey’s Lock area for 34 years. Opinicon is our favorite Rideau lake, and the large screened in porch gave us an uninterrupted view from one end of the lake to the cottage. Sunrises were spectacular. One evening after being chased off the lake by approaching lightning (of course, with a huge bass nibbling my hook), we sat on the porch and watched the storm approach from the other end of the lake for over an hour. It was awesome. The walk from the cottage to the dock was manageable, even considering my recent knee replacement. The interior of the cottage is clean, bright, cheery and spacious – loved the knotty pine! We’ve already re-booked Dorothy’s and Lakewood for summer 2015. The Carbino’s, who manage both properties are very interested in suggested improvements and respond immediately to any need. Arlene O

Peaceful and rustic!

This is my second stay in this cabin overlooking Opinicon Lake. The rental company were a pleasure to deal with. We were here with three kids ranging in age from 4-6, and they enjoyed the canoeing and fishing, campfires, and ice cream at the Opinicon Resort in Chaffey's. The Cataraqui trail was great for biking, and we stopped for a picnic at an ideal spot overlooking a marsh/swamp with all kinds of wildlife. The kids loved it! We saw deer, a fox, turtles, snakes, the kids even caught some little fish off the dock at the cabin. There is no cable or DVD player, and we managed to survive just fine. Some nearby sights we enjoyed include: Jones falls, Westport (Tangled garden Cafe, Vanilla Bean Cafe), Chaffey's, Merrickville ('Yellow canoe' for lunch), Davis Lock. canoe and kayaks were used daily. The lake is peaceful and the sounds of the loons and owls - beautiful. We were sad to leave. I would highly recommend Lakewood, and the surrounding areas!
