Perfect for 2 people seeking privacy and tranquility with proximity to a vibrant rural village, this beautiful 2 Bedroom, 4 season vacation home has hardwood floors, fireplace, large cedar deck & screened in porch with master bedroom walk-out and full finished basement/games room.
The home is equipped with wireless internet, air conditioning and is situated at the base of Foley Mountain. The property is gorgeous with a variety of large trees, lush lawn and gardens and is on the shore of Westport Pond. The home is 30' from the waters edge where nature abounds. Eagles, osprey, loons, ducks, geese and white tailed deer can be seen out the front window. Although the pond is not a swim-able due to its depth, it is an amazing bird, fish and wildlife sanctuary and there is a public beach on Sand lake 5 minutes walk from the door. This is one of the most tranquil locations you will find and the location is fantastic! A 10 minute walk takes you to the centre of the beautiful village of Westport and 5 minutes to stroll the Rideau Nature Trail and Foley Mountain Conservation area.
For boaters and fishers, there are free boat ramps onto Upper Rideau, Sand, Wolf and Canoe Lakes a very short distance away. By canoe, you can be paddling to Kingston or Ottawa (both downhill as Westport is the Watershed), camping at the historic locks all the way. You will find a fully equipped modern kitchen, gas BBQ, all the comforts of home, all the tranquility of country living.
Westport is located 90 minutes from Ottawa and 50 minutes from Kingston Ontario and is on the Rideau Canal which was recently recognized as a World Heritage Site. A perfect blend of nature and rural life. You will LOVE it!!
