Whiskeyjack Cottage is a newly renovated 4-season waterfront cottage on Golden Lake, which Ottawa Magazine’s Ron Corbett includes in his ‘Top 10 Great Lakes of Eastern Ontario’. Golden Lake is located in the Upper Ottawa Valley Region and is famed for its stunning outdoors. The Cottage is named after the Whiskeyjack or Canada Jay, a year-round resident bird. The cottage has 106 feet of private, shallow, shoreline that an adult can walk out in for 100 feet or more and only be at chest level. Access to the water is via a dock ladder. Under foot is a firm, hard bottom, a bit of water grass…. but no weeds! The exposure is southeast for beautiful morning sunrises and lots of sun at the shore all day long. Golden Lake is also known for its spectacular sunsets which can be glimpsed round the cottage’s other side.
As you enter the cottage, you come into a cozy space to relax in front of the gas fireplace plus a large table for dining or family board games. There is a walkout to the lakeside deck from the living room, and a large eat-in kitchen has everything you need to prepare great meals. Whiskeyjack Cottage has three bedrooms. Both the Master and second bedroom have queen-size beds, a sitting area, and French doors which open onto the lakeside deck. The third bedroom has bunk-beds with a double bottom/single top.The fully renovated 4-piece bathroom has a tub with shower.
Outdoors has everything you need for a relaxing cottage experience. The large patio area features a BBQ for the Cottage Chef and furniture for dining al fresco, plus a lakeside fire pit for those evening marshmallow roasts. The cottage is set well away from the road with a grassy backyard for play. The cottage is only 30 feet from the water’s edge. The shoreline is treed. Enter the water from the dock ladder.
