Description from owner


If you're looking for a romantic and relaxing vacation, away from the hustle and bustle and stress of everyday life, Clever Fox cottage is the place for you. Located right on the shore of Crow Lake, this cottage offers a quiet, peaceful experience with just the sounds of gulls, loons and waves. Imagine yourself having morning coffee on the back deck overlooking the lake, listening to the cry of a loon and the magical sunrise piercing the early morning mist over the lake. Imagine enjoying a barbecue at sunset and watching the few small fishing boats drifting by while you relax in the hammock listening to the wind and waves, or going for tranquil daily walks or a cooling swim to get re-energized. Even rainy days can be enjoyed by listening to the soothing sound of falling rain, and the mesmerizing effect of the drops on the water while relaxing under the awning on the front deck. In the evenings, you can watch a movie, listen to music, relax by a fire or marvel at the fireflies and the night sky full of stars, or watch the moon rise over the lake while listening to the cry of the loon. Grill your steaks on the deck, fish from the dock, launch your canoe from the shore or bike the scenic South Frontenac. Whatever you decide to do, you'll enjoy your stay in this charming, modern cottage.

Bedroom has one queen size bed for two adults. In one corner of the bedroom there is a stair access to the loft that also has one queen bed and one single bed. This can accommodate an additional 2 family members but with limited privacy.

For a change of pace, shopping in Westport, or Perth is only 25 min away, while dining and supplies are available in Sharbot Lake (15 min drive).

A canoe , small boat, paddles and fishing equipment, life jackets and floats are included.

Owner's reply: Thanks Terry for your comments. Yes the loft beds are accessible through the main bedroom as the photos show and this may not be suitable for everyone. The parking rail is being upgraded to address your comments. The shoreline is indeed rugged on Crow Lake and care needs to exercised near the lake.
