The cottage was built in 2010, a beautiful, modern, designer interior means that you will enjoy the luxuries of a 4 star cottage while in a beautiful lakeside setting. In the winter enjoy the hot-tub on the deck or in the summer the fantastic swimming in the lake. Keep the bird feeders topped up and you will have hummingbirds in the summer, and an almost endless stream of birds in the winter.
West facing on 150 feet of Waterfront, with a 28 foot dock it is great for swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, etc. Enjoy the sunsets from the swing down by the waterfront. In the winter the lake is very popular for ice-fishing, skidooing, and snowshoeing.
This was a model home in the Salon de l’Habitation in Montreal (2009) so the interior finishing, kitchen cabinets, bathroom, wall coverings, flooring, and even exterior lighting and trim were selected by interior /* designers */ to showcase new materials. The house is equipped with an air-heat exchanger keeping the cottage well ventilated and warm in all seasons.

All bed linen is included in the rental price. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and 8 foot patio doors on the deck. The clerestory windows allow you lie in bed and see the stars or the moon. The second bedroom on the main floor has a queen size bed and cedar lined walls. The third bedroom at ground level below has a walk out to the firepit. This room is furnished with a double pull out couch and a single futon.
The designer bathroom has a large walk-in shower, rainfall shower-head, and waterfall taps at the double sink. The 9 foot ceilings and a window that open keep it bright and airy. Inside towels are included in the rental cost, but please bring your own beach towels.
A kayak and a fishing boat with electric motor are provided during the summer and fall. The cottage faces the setting sun and the beach area is sunny all afternoon. A comfortable swing by the water is a great place for enjoying the sunsets, or a cup of morning coffee. The water in the lake is very clear for swimming and we always get a great rating for water quality. The firepit has a fantastic view over the lake. Please see the “Surroundings” page for more about the immediate area.
Roddick Lake is near Bouchette, in Quebec about 1.5 hours North of Ottawa. It is a beautiful lake over 6km long and very popular for boating and fishing. You can go hiking on the beautiful trail up to the lookout, explore the small islands on the lake, or a short drive away visit the deer at a local sanctuary in Ste-Therese de la Gatineau. It is also close to white-water on the Gatineau River.
