The "Love Nest" is a cozy, rustic bohemian style apartment that used to be a workshop and is now a 3 story getaway. It has been carefully restored and decorated to create a feeling of peace and wellbeing.
“This is a great little spot just a minute walk from the picturesque Chaffeys Lock and access to the Cataraqui trail. Veronika was available when we arrived to walk us through how to use the wood stove and generally how to heat the cabin. Walk over to the Opinicon resort for a great dinner and live music on Friday nights (we’d recommend the pub over the dining room for a more lively atmosphere). Also leave time to check out the resort grounds. Driving about 30-40 minutes will take you nearby towns like Perth (totally worth checking out). We cooked a few meals as well and the kitchen has more than enough tools and equipment (no oven but there is a bbq outside) just make sure you bring oil and condiments (pb, Jan, etc.). Incredibly peaceful surroundings with nothing but crickets and birds to wake you in the morning. Great stay and we can’t wait to come back!”
We are located in the quaint little village of Newboro, close to the Rideau Canal at Newboro locks. Perfectly situated for day trips to Perth, Gananoque, Kingston and Ottawa. This is a century home, loving restored, with all the modern amenities. A great nights sleep, followed by a full breakfast to get your day sta
“Great character house, clean, comfy bed with our own bathroom. Good value, bonus having a delicious breakfast, Nicki is a fun host. Loved walking around the quaint neighbourhood of Newboro, the locks, lodges with character restaurants, best French fries truck, the famous Kilborn’s store with huge quality inventory, ohhh the shoes.....sooo many shoes.......best shoe selection in Ontario! Also a short drive to Westport a busy tourist village. Would stay again!”

“The Simmons Cottage is an amazing find and a great place to stay for anyone looking to get out of the city to somewhere quiet and beautiful. Apart from the cottage being fantastic, clean and charming, the hosts were absolutely fantastic and left all sorts of cute personal touches for us. They even helped us jump start the car when our battery died and were very flexible with check in and check out. I highly recommend this property and the hosts and will for sure be back for another weekend in the summer. Thanks again!”
