Fireplace
Waterfront

Cozy up by the fire this winter!

There is very little boat traffic, often going days during the week without seeing a boat in the summer and weeks during the off season. Over 2 acres with a large open lawn and gentle slope to the water provides plenty of room for kids to run and play. The water's edge is sandy but then drops off making it ideal for swimming and jumping off the dock. (No Weeds) The cottage features a stone patio with table, chairs, umbrella, large BBQ, board games, and a 55" sat tv for the rainy days. The kitchen is equipped with almost anything you could need including wine glasses. All you need are your own linens (sheets/towels)! All other basic amenities provided. There is even a playpen for the baby.

NEW - Optional linen rental service now available. The additional cost is $40 per bed and includes all bedding, 2 towels and wash cloths, and hand towels for each washroom.

Please respect that this is a NO SMOKING cottage. If that is a condition that you would even consider not abiding by then this isn't the cottage for you.

Excellent Whitewater Kayaking approximately 4km upriver in the "Palmer Rapids". "Snake Rapids" located farther downstream.

Our family of six could not have wanted for a more beautiful and accommodating cottage which offered all the amenities and comforts of home. It's quiet location on the Madawaska River is just what we were looking for and we loved boating and kayaking on this beautiful piece of the river. We took the opportunity to tour some of the area's attractions and we loved it so much we want to see it all again next year. We look forward to returning next year.

Our family absolutley loved staying at this well equipped cottage it was amazingly clean and comfortable. The owner Blair was very pleasent and accommodating. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for place to get away from the busy city life , and have a good time with friends/family. Its also a big property making it an ideal place for pets to be free to run around.

Blair's cottage is very beautiful and perfect for a certain type of renter, but unfortunately it wasn't perfect for us.
The cottage itself was beautiful and so was the property it sat on. It was on a large open property which was river front. Had a beautiful dock and fire pit which were the two aspects we liked and enjoyed the most.
Unlimited supply of fire wood was excellent. The cottage is very clean and comfortable, you feel like you are staying in someone's home which I'm sure some people would very much enjoy, but my partner and i didn't enjoy it for our own personal reasons.
We are avid campers and used to a very high level of peace and quiet and privacy, which we didn't feel we got at the cottage. Firstly, there was a very busy road directly behind the cottage. We heard 18 wheelers and motorcycles going by at all hours of the day and night which we personally found disturbing.
There was also some kind of acrobatics camp directly across the river from the property which we also found disturbing our peace many times a day, complete with rowdy people on megaphones... I feel bad leaving this review, as Blair's cottage is gorgeous and provides all the amenities anyone could ever want, including satellite tv, but we felt it was important for other people to know these things about the cottage so they could make an informed decision. If you value true privacy and peace and quiet, this isn't the cottage for you.

Owner response:
Hi Christine,

Thank you so much for the review. I am sorry you didn't find it as quiet as you are accustomed to. As you put it it isn't "camping". We like to provide as many of the comforts of home we can but still maintain a cottage feel. Being right off the paved roadway has it's advantages such as no dust from cars or mud when it rains. It is always the first to be snowplowed in the winter which is a big perk being a four season cottage as some roads can stay snow covered or muddy for days making access dangerous or impossible. Vehicles going by unfortunately is the cost. I always find it very tough when people ask how private it is since everyone has their own view of what privacy is. Compared to most cottage resorts it's private, compared to a paddle in campsite in Algonquin, not so private. I always suggest the map to view the area when asked.

The Camp across the river is Boundless Adventures. It is a 600 acre property offering outdoor learning. It is their ropes course you can see part of over the trees across the river. I usually only see them using it once or twice a week in the summer but I guess that would depend on the group that week. I always found it entertaining to see them swinging from the ropes and it sure beats looking across to a row of cottages with boats coming and going all day.

Thank you again for the review as I always want people to enjoy themselves to the fullest when at the cottage.

Take care
Blair

We stayed here for the Canada day long weekend and the week after with some friends we had such a great time very peaceful and relaxing...the cottage was so clean and spacious for 6 of us. Communication was great leading up to our stay we will for sure look into staying here again for another nice getaway!

Our family of 5 booked this cottage for a week in August and had a wonderful time. It's a large property with space to run around, a patio table and chairs, and a firepit with lots of firewood available. The river was lovely, with canoes and a kayak and a nice sandy area to wade or you can jump off the dock. It's also nicely private, no real neighbors and few motor boats going by. On the inside it was clean and spacious, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Would recommend! :)
