Fishing Lodge Cottage

A Few Reasons To Visit 

Southern Ontario offers great diversity for anglers looking for fantastic waters which include large lake systems such as Lake Ontario, Lake Simcoe, Georgian Bay, Lake Erie, Lake Scugog, Lake St. Clair and hundreds of smaller lakes. Anglers flock to smaller lakes and river systems such as the Grand River Watershed, Niagara, the Maitland and the Saugeen systems which are home to popular game fish such as pike, bass, walleye, rainbow trout, salmon, pan fish and carp. Southern Ontario also has many lodges and resorts which cater to the hard core angler as well as fishing and family fun vacations.

Rainbow Cottages Resort

Rainbow Cottages Resort, located on a private 118 acre property on River Otonabee, sits just north of Rice Lake. The resort offers as much as one would like in form of outdoor activities but can also be quiet retreat if need be. One can choose a brisk walk or a guided tour through one of the most famous and largest rice lake plains. Dog-sledging is also available during winter but there are many more activities all year round.
