Located in central Ontario and known as “Little Water” in the local Aboriginal language, Lake Nipissing is one of the province’s largest inland lakes, with cottage rentals nestled along its shores.
The region is a preferred destination for canoeists, kayakers, and anglers, as Lake Nipissing offers catches of brook and lake trout, small and large mouth bass, and northern pike. At the Laurier Woods Conservation Area, cycling, hiking, and walking are popular activities in the summer, while snowshoeing is a favourite come winter. Nearby Laurentian Ski provides opportunities for alpine skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and dog sledding.
As a Lake Nipissing hub, the historic waterfront city of North Bay is within easy driving distance from most cottage rentals. With plenty of restaurants, cafés, and pubs in the city, there is no shortage of places to retire to after a day on the water or trails. North Bay also hosts an array of annual events and festivals, including the Nipissing First Nation Traditional Pow Wow.
Just three-and-a-half hours from both Ottawa and Toronto, Lake Nipissing is a popular place to rent a cottage in Ontario.+ More
