Rideau Lakes Real Estate

How to find your ideal property in the Rideau Lakes Area.

Quick story...

One day a guy called me, he was frustrated and ticked right off.

He was mad, really mad and I was getting the brunt of his anger

Opinicon Lake

... and I didn't have the faintest clue who he was.


He eventually calmed down and told me his story...

He and his wife had submitted an offer on a property (on Big Rideau Lake) they absolutely loved.

This was a BEAUTIFUL place.

Great cottage, stunning sand beach, boathouse and priced aggressively to sell.

The next day he got a phone call...

...and was told THEY LOST IT.

He had to sound off to someone, found my site (this one) and decided to scream at me...even though he didn't know me at all!

Nice way to start my day...the question is though...


They were first to make an offer...

...here's how you can avoid this happening to you

Several KEY factors come into play:

1- Their search strategy, knowing every property on the market

2- Agency Law, who is working for whom?

3- Pricing and understanding values

...and knowing when the best properties hit the market

This is why I created this site.

The only COTTAGE and marketing program that covers across Ontario...

except... this is MY REGION...

and I know these lakes and other lakes in the area...

Rideau Lakes

The Rideau Lakes are part of the oldest continually operated canal system in North America. It was originally constructed as a supply route in case of American attack (conceived after the war of 1812) and opened in 1832.

Out of the wilderness of lakes, rivers and swamps men dug and dammed sections from Ottawa to Kingston and the St. Lawrence River. There are a total of 47 locks and 52 dams creating a 202 km stretch of boaters paradise.

There are numerous lakes in the area and you are close to many towns.

This area is only about an hour from Ottawa, 3 hours from Toronto and only a short drive from Kingston.

The area is Canadian Shield with granite cliffs, pines and hardwoods ensuring a beautiful and colorful fall. The fishing in these lakes and the river system is fantastic!

Lake trout, bass, pike, walleye in areas as well as world class Musky fishing in the lower section towards Ottawa.
