Our Winter Wonderland

We are open year round and winter might be the MOST amazing time. Great for couples and families!  We’ve been booked for Christmas and New Years for the last three years but otherwise would even be able to take last minute bookings. The Lake House and The Great House are winterized, so if you have a large group you will have 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. If you need even more housing, we can arrange lodging with our next door neighbors. Once the lake has frozen, it is fabulous for cross country skiing, snow shoeing and ice fishing. If you are skating buffs, we will clear the snow in front of your house and give you your very own skating rink!!

If you don’t want to cook, we have a fabulous caterer who will provide the food for you, which is especially great if you are having an executive retreat or family reunion.

And by the way, this is a good time to do that because our prices are half of what they are in the summer!

Ice Fishing

We are pleased to announce that we will be providing ice fishing at Bobs Lake Cottages and Escapes this winter, starting February 2018. We are fortunate to have the services of one of the greatest anglers in Ontario, Sebastian Kolwaczuk and his Cottage FishingAdventures. Sebastian has appeared on numerous fishing TV shows and knows Bobs Lake like the back of his hand. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfVfS_UBGzQ). We will provide ice fisherman with 6 person heated huts, several portable huts, transportation to and from the huts, minnows and if needed survival suits, for $50 per person per day. Sebastian will be scouting out the best places to fish throughout the season. Sebastian provides a guided fishing service for those who want to catch the most fish and have the most fun during their stay. His fee is available upon request.

People who want to stay for several days have two options. They can stay in the Great House or the Eagle with our American Plan provided by Manna Catering. These are beautiful cottages suitable for the fisherman and his or her family members.  The price for three meals and lodging is $700 CDN per person per day. We also have two housekeeping units each of which can sleep 5 people (two twin beds per bedroom and one living room fold out bed), for those who want to cook for themselves.

Space is limited and the season is short, so please contact as soon as possible.

What People are Saying About Bobs Lake in the Winter


My friends and I are a group of designers, engineers, and artists who are simply drawn to beauty, harmony and nature. We travel and welcome new possibilities. To ring in the new year (2014), we decided to get away from the madness in Toronto and resort to a cottage accessible from Montreal (for those of us who live there). I found Bob’s Lake Cottages through an online search, and merely by accident and fell in love. The website was comprehensive, informative and clear. After corresponding with Marla, who had built the cottages and properties over the years, I was certain that this is the place we wanted to be for a few days. And it was magical. The cottages were beautifully designed, decorated and were well-equipped with everything that we needed, including comfortable rooms, beds, vintage pieces, kitchen appliances, hammocks, fireplace, wifi, and etc. We played board games, listen to music, and even though it was reported that Ontario had been colder than Mars and the North Pole during that time, we were warm and happy.
