Travelling to Rideau Lakes, Ontario
Located in the heart of old Ontario along the historical Rideau Canal, Rideau Lakes cottage rentals are scattered along the shores of a myriad of Eastern Ontario’s lakes and rivers.
With 500 kilometres of shoreline, Rideau Lakes is a fishing and boating hot spot. Anglers will be well served with catches of small and large mouth bass, lake trout, northern pike, and walleye and paddlers can spend a day on the water at Charleston Lake and Frontenac Provincial parks. Come winter, the parkland is great terrain for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing and Rideau Canal freezes over to form the world’s largest skating rink!
From its source in Lake Ontario over to Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, the Rideau Canal weaves its way through Eastern Ontario’s bucolic countryside, historic towns, and charming villages. The region is dotted with antique shops and art galleries that display and sell local artists’ work. Annual events, including the Delta Maple Syrup Festival and Chaffey’s Locks Corn Roast, entertain locals and visitors alike.
Just outside of Ottawa, the Rideau Lakes region is a popular place to rent a cottage in Ontario.
