Rental Information

Ironwoods is located one hour North of Kingston and one and a half hours South of Ottawa. It can be reached from the United States by the Thousand Island Bridge.

The property is on forty-four acres of Canadian woods and farm land. It is a one hundred year old turn of the century two-story cottage. The house looks out on to the Big Rideau Lake, part of the Historic Rideau Canal waterway. The lake is part of a two hundred and two kilometer long canal and river system recognized as a Unesco World Heritage site.

The entrance is off of Cove Rd down Edwards Point Lane. Edwards Point Lane is secured by a green gate and is a private road. The drive way is a mile long winding gravel road. The house is also accessible by boat; both are less than 10 minutes from Portland, Ontario.

The cottage is distinguishable from the lake by its reddish shingles and broad encircling porch. The property’s shoreline is outlined by a stone retaining wall and punctuated by a one-slip white boat house with a green door and traditional wooden dock on both sides.

There are five bedrooms, including one bunkroom with two bunk beds and a sun porch that is wonderful for children as it is completely enclosed by casement windows. The house can comfortably sleep thirteen people.

The house has three full and one half bathroom. The three bathrooms each have traditional claw-foot bathtubs.

There is a spacious kitchen, with a new fridge, a stove and oven with plenty of cupboard space and a homey wooden table that will seat six comfortably. All utensils and cookware are provided. Off of the kitchen is a laundry room with a new washing machine and dryer.

From the kitchen a pantry leads into a large dining room and living room. The house is comfortably furnished throughout for cottage living. The dining room table will comfortably sit ten people. Two french doors from the dining room open on to a large screened in porch which is wonderful for entertaining. A spectacular sixteen-foot wide veranda encircles the house, providing shade and shelter.
