ICE FISHING and our Winter Wonderland

We are open year round and winter for some 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. If you have a large group you will have 17 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Once the lake has frozen, you can cross country ski, snow shoe and take advantage of our ice fishing package. If you are skating buffs, we will clear the snow in front of your house and give you your very own skating rink!!

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

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.
