“Views are Spectacular All Day... Every Day”

Rarely does a spectacular cottage retreat like this become available. This property is situated on the south-eastern shore of Black Lake. With this type of exposure you will not only be vacationing in a comfortable cabin but you will also be captivated by a nightly sunset. Located only 15 minutes south of Perth and 1 hour from Ottawa or Kingston on a private road just off paved County Road # 10. The private beach is on Black Lake, a spring-fed lake with crystal clear water. We have claimed that we have always been able to drink “Black Lake tea”. There is no public access.

There is approximately 5 miles of boatable waters. It is a picturesque lake with islands, inlets & well spaced cottages. It is a low density lake. And it has a Cottage/Homeowners Association insuring that landowners maintain the natural beauty of the area. There is an excellent fish population which includes large & small mouth bass, panfish, pike, perch, pickerel & catfish. Other favourite pastimes on this lake include canoeing, kayaking, pontooning, water skiing & boarding. Our lakeside fire pit makes for scenic stary nights and great entertainment. A perfect place to make summer memories.

You can fish right from your own dock. There are spectacular, to-die for, views & sunsets over the bay and you must love the cry of the loon. Nearby attractions include Westport, Perth, Mapleview Golf Course, Perth Links of Tay Golf Course (15 min).
