Beautiful Restoration

The Beveridges Lockmasters Cottage has been tastefully restored and is equipped with central air. An idyllic setting by the locks on the Tay. We spent hours on the wrap around porch watching the activity, paddled up the canal and had a very relaxing week. Lots to see in the area of Perth, Chasseys Locks and area.

Historic venue with modern conveniences

My family and I enjoyed a most pleasant and sunny week at Beveridges Lockmaster's House. The historic charm is maintained with the high ceilings, baseboards and wrap around porch mingled with A/C, stunning bathrooms, new kitchen and highlighted with restored period furniture, full dining room and pictures and prints of wildlife. The renovation team and decorators are to commended for the use of wood and tile throughout. We enjoyed the view of the locks and the daily comings and goings through the canal. The staff at the locks, were led by Ian and during our week Matt, Grace and Jordan. We were greeted every morning by Matt with a friendly hello and smile. The entire staff are great ambassadors for Parks Canada. We rented a pontoon boat for five days and appreciated the work and history behind Colonel By's brilliance on the Rideau Canal System. We meandered up the Tay Canal to Perth and were observed by a deer, loons, eastern kingbirds, the resident osprey and a scarlet tanager. We also went down to the Poonmalie Lock on the Lower Rideau and in to Big Rideau to the west. Our girls enjoyed jumping in to the cold lake in a deep bay. Our evenings were spent around a campfire. Robin was most helpful in booking the house and checked in by email to see if everything was fine. A great week of R & R at a most interesting location.

The house was great. It was beautifully appointed and the location was wonderful. We travelled to Perth by water and road. We visited Smith Falls, the Narrows and Westport by water. We went to Portland, Perth, Davis lock and Westport by land. I loved the unique dinner ware in the dining room. The blend of tradition and contemporary touches throughout made it so comfortable. The porch was a favourite spot. The lock staff was awesome. Special memories were made! Thank you Robin!
