About This Cottage
Every once in a while, CLRM is privileged to witness a cottage evolve during a renovation effort. When we first saw this property, it was easy to see the potential . When we returned partway through the effort, it was clear that something special was happening. When we finally saw the finished cottage, we couldn’t wait to get it on the web site!
When we sat on the shore near the beach, all was quiet except for the melodious chirping of birds and the very gentle lapping of the water on the shore. The azure sky and forest green made for such a wonderful relaxing combination that we are excited to now be able to share it with you.
Birdsong is a traditional cottage with modern upgrades and amenities that are essential to the Ontario cottage experience. Inside the cottage, the main level is open-concept, with a living, dining and kitchen area. The large picture windows look out beyond the yard and onto the lake, filling the area with light from the southeastern exposure. The kitchen has all you need to prepare meals for hungry families, as well as an island with stools for more casual dining. Meals can be enjoyed with a lakeside view, and if you ever tire of looking at nature (or when the day darkens), you can enjoy something on the satellite TV/DVD combination.
Downstairs you will find 3 very nice bedrooms. Two have queen beds, both with sliders to the yard, a lake view and an electric fireplace. A third bedroom has a set of double bunk beds, for sleeping up to 4 people. The laundry area and 4-piece bath round out the lower level.
As you can tell, from the photos, you will be comfortable inside, but the surrounding trees and water are why you came, right? Whitestone Lake offers boating and exploration of numerous bays and channels, all which await your arrival in the kayaks, canoe or paddleboat included with this rental. Entire families may want to explore the lake in a flotilla, perhaps returning later to enjoy a swim at the swimming platform in the deeper water or watching the toddlers wade in the shallows at the small beach at water’s edge. Of course, working up an appetite from these activities will demand a few meals on the BBQ, and Birdsong provides a wonderful new sheltered grill for the outdoor gourmet in your group.
Evenings will no doubt see people recounting tales of their adventures around a campfire and enjoying a marshmallow or two prior to turning in for the night.
Birdsong is a wonderful haven for those looking to get away from it all in comfort and style.

July 27, 2012We had a great time at your beautiful cottage. The fishing was slow but we had fun exploring the lake. We did manage to catch some bass, walleye and crappie for a delicious fish fry. Thank you so much.Y & K Families
August 3, 2012Birdsong gave us great memories that we will cherish in the years to come. From canoeing, swimming or fishing to just sitting on the deck and enjoying the view….we had so much fun. Thank you for this little piece of heaven.S & L Families

September 10, 2012We enjoyed a fabulous week at the Birdsong Cottage. The interior of the cottage is beautifully decorated and feels both welcoming and cozy. The place is stocked with everything needed for a perfect vacation.The view of the lake is amazing and can be enjoyed from just about anywhere on the property – the deck that wraps around the cottage, the living room, dining room, kitchen, bedrooms, backyard, beach, picnic table to the side of the cottage, or the dock – and each outdoor area has chairs from which to enjoy said view.We enjoyed the music channels on TV, especially 930.It was great to have access to the laundry machines! Many cottages don’t have them – also dishwasher!
June 17, 2013We had an awesome time at your beautiful Cottage! The view from the deck is breathtaking! The Cottage was full of everything we needed and more. Having a campfire and toasting marshmellows was so much fun except for all the bug bites! Our daughter loved playing in the water and sand! We are hoping to come back next summer.Thank you for a wonderful time.C, R & S
June, 2013We knew from the minute we walked into the cottage that we picked the right spot for our first family vacation. With all of the ’extras’ that the cottage was stocked with, we didn’t have to worry anything but relaxing. We especially enjoyed the nightly campfires, the paddleboat rides, the games, fishing and the beach. We made so many great family memories that we hope to make this vacation a yearly one. Thank you for such a wonderful week.The Ms

Even though it rained a couple of days we were fully equipped with board games and movies.Thank you for sharing your beautiful family cottage with us.The As
Aug 2, 2013We had another amazing week here at Birdsong! Although the weather wasn’t as cooperative as last year, we found plenty of things to do to occupy our time.

We made many more great memories to add to our memories from last year and hope to make many more next year!Thank you sharing your cottage with us!The Ms
August 23rd, 2014Thank you for sharing “Birdsong” with us for our annual family vacation. Our boys loved the beach and tried their hand at fishing from the dock. The cottage is beautiful and so well equipped. I loved the kitchen and the great view while doing dishes and preparing meals. Your kitchen is inspiring renovation plans for my kitchen and home.Although we had several rainy days that kept us from the beach and lake, we enjoyed all the games and puzzles.We were also lucky to be here for the 125th annual Dunchurch Fall Fair. It was a highlight for us as our boys got to enjoy candy floss, petting zoo and lots of hay.Thanks again!The Rumbles(Mike, Tracy, Oliver, Owen & Grandma)
August 26, 2014Dear Birdsong,I came up here for the first time this week with my mum, 2 sisters, brother-in-law, niece Clare, Ted the dog, and boyfriend Winger.We spent the first few days sunning ourselves, enjoying the lake and boating, as well as the incredible view. And then…I found myself sitting at the end of your dock this evening with Wing at sunset when he opened a box in front of me while on one knee and asked me to be his wife! Woohoo!!! What a beautiful place to have dreams come true. JNow we will have to celebrate our anniversary or several here! Thanks for the gorgeous property and cottage to make a lifetime of memories.Awesome!Heather Archibald and Jeremy Winger October 12, 2015Dear Sullivans,We had a wonderful time at your cottage. Although our stay was short, it was the most memorable 3-day get away from the busy city and from our hectic schedules. From the time we parked our vehicle at the cottage had already given us the “HOMEY” feeling and we felt good that we made the right choice and will definitely come back. To top it all, the cottage had everything anyone can possibly need. No need for boat rides or campfire.
