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 had a visit from the Ontario Tourist group looking to promote winter activities in our area. We also had a visit from a fishing group, that set up ice huts and cooked up fabulous fish that they caught!!

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.
