Guest House

NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. A newly renovated, frame home, the Guest House captures the essence of country living regardless of which season you choose for your vacation. Just seconds from the private lake, this cozy residence is the perfect place to gather after long days of outdoor activities.


Located amid towering pines in a spot that overlooks Pine Lake, the Cabin, with its natural wood flooring and comfortable ambience, is a special place. Separate from the other P&B R&R residences, the Cabin provides a tranquil getaway.


The Cottage is located directly on Pine Lake, just steps from the beach and dock. Due to its waterfront location, it has been very popular over the years, especially during the summer months. The fully furnished Cottage is a 400 square foot one-room unit with a fully equipped kitchen and a separate four-piece bathroom.

What our guests are saying

  • Thanks for sharing this lovely property with us. The walk around the lake, the great swimming and relative quiet were restorative. Cheers!

  • Bonjour Todd! Un séjour parfait dans un endroit magnifigue! Idéal pour décrocher de la vie trop intense de la ville! Plein de découvertes…Au plaisir d’y retourner un jour!

  • We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. The lake water is fabulous to swim in and we also had a great adventure with the boat! The cabin is really comfortable and really beautifully decorated. We’d recommend exploring the property, walking the trail around the lake and meeting the dogs, horses and chickens!

  • This was an exceptional retreat for three old friends. We enjoyed the rustic seclusion of the lake. We took in the local sights of the Lush Cave on Lac Philippe as well went on a 10k walk on the local trails. The owner and property manager were very welcoming and friendly. We plan on returning next year with the family.

  • Thanks for a wonderful & restful retreat from the city. We loved sitting by the lake, walking the trails, & enjoying nightly campfires. We had a lovely time and hope to return!

  • We drove in from Toronto and found ourselves totally relaxed at your private lake! What a wonderful spot to be! We recommend Wakfield and the trail to the cave in Gatineau Park.

  • We had a relaxing weekend, taking in the beautiful colours and tranquil nature of the season. Thank you!

  • From NYC to this place is quite a change. We had a beautiful stay, and found the peace and beauty we were looking for. Thank you for providing a red kayak like in my child tales. Hope you can keep this nature as beautiful as it is.

  • Thank you for providing the opportunity for such a wonderful, warm experience! The cabin is lovely and provides such an intimate nest away from the noise of the city. Having a view of the pond really makes all the difference! We were extremely comfortable here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • Many thanks, Todd and Melissa! We were so grateful we could send a package to you (for us) beforehand. We loved being so cozy inside with a fire, chilling on the deck with the little one, swimming in the lake, going on a little mushroom exploration, watching the birds, smelling the trees and having a campfire. Next time we must book sooner and stay longer!
