Come and make memories with your family at our much loved family cottage that we’ve enjoyed for generations. Soak in the summer sunshine on the patio out back while listening to the breeze whisper through the cedar trees. Let your cares melt away while lounging on the dock or swaying peacefully in the hammock. Gaze at the incredible night sky and count the shooting stars while snuggling by the campfire.

Take the canoe for a peaceful early morning paddle and watch our resident blue heron as he lands on the dock to greet the day. Cast your line off the dock and spend the afternoon fishing. Cool off with a relaxing weed-free swim in the lake. Take in the incredible sunsets from the deck. If you’re up for a walk to town, Bridgenorth is a 15 min stroll away. Dine at Chemong Lodge or grab your morning java at Timmies. Cross the causeway to buy fresh local sweet corn, right from the farmer’s truck. Prepare delicious meals in my grandmother’s kitchen with the fresh produce that you’ve found at our local farmers markets and roadside stands.

The dining area seats 6 with an excellent view of the sunset, and easy access to the galley kitchen and great room. The galley kitchen is fully equipped with a new stove, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, fridge, kettle and coffee maker with lots of dishes, and pots and pans to cook up any feast.

The guest cottage faces into the sunset, and has one large bedroom with two queen beds, a dining area, kitchen and 2 pc bathroom. The kitchen is only equipped with a fridge, microwave and sink so most cooking will have to be done in the main cottage, but you can still make a snack or two.


  • Waterfront: 125 feet
  • Water entry: sandy/stony shallow walk-in – no weeds
  • Plenty of parking
  • Large Deck: 16’ x 10’
  • Dock: 5’ x 20’
  • Small beach area with grass and sand
  • Canoe
  • 2 kayaks
  • Hammock
  • Rowboat
  • 14’ aluminum fishing boat with 9.9HP ($400.00/wk extra)

The cottage is situated on a private flat area with a gradually sloping lot, 125’ of waterfront, well maintained garden, lots of parking and a southern exposure for awesome sunsets. The dock will take you about 20 feet into the lake where you can enjoy the sunsets or jump into weed-free water for a swim. If jumping into the lake is not your speed, you can wade into the lake with ease over the mixed sandy and pebbled bottom near the shore, or play by the shore in a small mixed grassy and sandy area. Access to the water is easy for launching the canoe, rowboat or our 14’ fishing boat with 9.9HP (extra charge).

The main cottage is partly surrounded by a deck with plenty of seating. We’ve also installed a sun shade for those seeking a break from the sunny days, but still wanting a view of the lake. There are shady areas with grass for those who want to have a game of badminton or volleyball or let the children run free. The hammock swings from two shady trees with a relaxing view of the lake. There is a picnic table near the fire pit for lunches, evening dinners by a campfire or an evening of roasting marshmallows.

My Family Loved It

My family loved their holiday at Chemong Lake Cottage. The size of the property provided a safe area for my young nephew to run around and for the adults, the deck was a welcome island of peace. The beach area is small but safe and many hours were spent playing there with our little guy. The views from shore and from out in the the row boat are... Read More
