The Lake House

Pet-Friendly Lakefront Retreat w/ Hot Tub, Kayaks, Fire Pit, Pickleball & Games

Just steps from the lake with the most incredible views and tons of amenities, the Lake House creates a space that’s perfect for two separate families or groups of friends, plus their furry family members. Gather together at the lake, then enjoy your own private space. It’s the ultimate blend of privacy and togetherness.

*BONUS* If you need less space, rent Lake House Upper or Lake House Lower separately. Add in the Little House next door and have the lakefront to yourselves. If you need even more space, our other 2 cottages allow you to sleep a total of 35 people.

Living Spaces

In The Lake House Upper, 25 feet of glass windows showcase stunning lake views. The entire light-filled space has been completely renovated with a modern aesthetic, central A/C and heat, high-speed internet, a flat-screen TV, and a modern gas fireplace. With an open layout and multiple seating options, there is plenty of space to gather and enjoy a cozy fire and lake views.

The views are also on full display from the open living space in Lake House Lower, where a wall of glass floods the space with natural light. Relax on a comfy couch, let your children play air hockey in the living room and watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, or simply enjoy the views.

Kitchen & Dining

Light, bright, and open, each of the two modern kitchens features an all-white design. They are both fully equipped with everything you need to make meals at the lake, including a dishwasher, air fryer, a large fridge , an electric ice cream maker and an air fryer.

When it’s time to dine, there is a table for eight in Lake House Upper and a table for eight in Lake House Lower, as well as outdoor dining.

Bedrooms & Baths

When you need a little time to yourself to recharge, choose from four beautifully decorated bedrooms. With two bedrooms and a full bathroom in both Lake House Upper and Lower, there’s plenty of space for everyone with lots of privacy. When you stay with us, you’ll also have use of a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Outdoor Amenities

The Lake House has two lakefront decks, one covered, overlooking the beautiful lake, hot tub and outdoor dining area. Relax on your deck and watch the kids play by the lake. Get out on the water on the provided canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and paddleboats. Bring your boat and use our boat launch, or rent one from us – we offer fishing, pontoon, and speed boats all on-site. 

If you’d rather stick to the land, you can fish right from the dock and use the fish cleaning hut. We also have bikes for your use, a basketball/pickleball court, play volleyball and badminton, and have your young children enjoy the playground. Dine al fresco at the outdoor table, take in the views from the lakefront swing, and gather with friends and family in multiple outdoor lounge areas. 

When you visit in the winter, experience the lake like never before as it freezes and transforms into your own ice skating rink just steps from your cottage. You’re going to love it here! 

The Neighborhood 

Located in South Frontenac, midway between Toronto and Montreal, Bobs Lake is rural Ontario’s largest wilderness lake. The biggest draw of this area, which is approximately 7 hours from NYC, is the incredible access to such pristine wilderness. Surrounded by hundreds of lakes, forests, and hiking and biking trails, it’s dotted with small villages like Westport, just 22 minutes away, where you can eat fish and chips, buy fudge, and get pizza at the winery overlooking the lake. The cities of Perth and Kingston are also just 45 minutes away. Bobs Lake is a great place to escape with the family and get away from it all.

Please inquire about parties and events, as we love to host weddings, retreats, family reunions, and more. We can arrange catering, tent setup, rentals, photography, and more.
