It’s lake time and we’re feeling fine. If you’re looking for places to have some fun in the sun this summer, then this rustic Ontario cottage for rent is perfect. With a colourful floating boathouse and a deck that gives us major treehouse vibes, you’re never going to want to leave this charming spot.

Located on the shores of Big Rideau Lake in Portland, Ont., The Pines Cottage has been around since 1918 and the space is chock-full of character.

Whether you’re relaxing in the 12-metre screened-in veranda, soaking up the sun on the tree-top deck, or diving into the lake from the floating boathouse, the good times are plentiful here. 

The space features three cozy bedrooms and can accommodate up to six people at a time. 

At $330 a night, that means you and five friends could split this vintage oasis for just $55 each. For a place like this, that can't help but feel like a steal!

It's worth noting that there’s a seven-night booking minimum at the time of writing. So you'll have to spend a full week here, oh no!

So if you’re ready for BBQs with the besties and late nights spent floating your cares away, then you need to take a trip to the pines. 

Because life is simply s’more fun when you’re at the lake.

The Pines Cottage

A steep staircase leads from the main cottage down to the floating yellow-and-red dock house.

From here, you can enjoy a deep swimming hole perfect for jumping in and practicing your cannonballs.

But if you’re not one to make a splash, don’t worry. 

Steps on the side of the dock will give you easy access to some shallow water for you to lounge in.

Within the screened-in veranda, you’ll find a gorgeous eight-foot pinewood table where you can feast well into the evening. 

And with a fully-equipped kitchen and BBQ on-site, you should have no trouble putting your chef skills to work here.

So if you're long overdue for a little R&R, why not add a splash of colour to your summer plans with this fun-filled rental?
