Large, Modern, Beautiful Cottage in Beautiful Surroundings!

An amazing cottage! It suited our family of 8 adults very well, with lots of space between each bedroom to provide privacy, and two separate sitting areas, so you could choose to quietly read on your own too. The cottage is large, clean, and modern, with every convenience. We especially loved the double wall ovens with so many racks lots of cooking was possible! Our daughters made much use of the stand mixer, which we were so pleased to find there! Although it was September, we still enjoyed warm weather, and two days were sunny enough for swimming! I was especially enamoured of the amazing office space on the upper level, and wish my own home office was half as nice. The internet is with Starlink, and is fast and reliable enough for streaming and working (if you’re so inclined). We also loved the large dining table, more than large enough for everyone to gather around, whether eating or playing games. Much fun was had, and memories were made!

Sunset views, comfortable accommodation with all the trimmings, wildlife at your doorstep, lots of fun on a warm lake for swimming, fishing and kayaking. Beautifully maintained property with an accommodating owner who cares. Pakenham, Almonte, Burnstown and Arnprior all within a short drive if you wish to explore further afield.

I believe this is our 6th trip back to Galini Lakehouse where our whole family has a chance to truly relax and enjoy this beautiful property. Upon arrival you know you are in a special place. The landscaping , perennials, roses and hydrangeas welcome you . As you step out of you vehicle onto the large driveway you immediately get the smell of the freshwater Lake mixed in with the smell of cedars, pine and birch trees. And then as you approach the very clean a well kept cottage you see the panoramic view of the western facing lake where the sunsets will literally create your own postcards. Once inside , well the pictures speak for themselves. Every convenience you can think of and more. Our whole family has enjoyed the cottage, including the kayaks, canoes, dock and the sound of the loons , ospreys and eagles all of which have nests nearby. Nick , Angie and Johnny are so nice and take such pride in sharing this beautiful property with us. Our Grandchildren cant wait for our trip to what they call the Blue Cottage every summer and Winter. They have literally grown up there and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Looking forward now to our winter stay at this beautiful place.
Fabulous cottage week!

We had a fabulous week at Galini Lakehouse. The cottage is spacious, gorgeous, and had everything we could have wanted or needed. The water was clear and calm, and the lake was lovely to explore. The waterfront was well-groomed and we thoroughly enjoyed evenings sitting around the fire pit. The sunsets and stars were stunning!! Thanks so much for an amazing week!
Great cottage with access to beauctiful clear lake

We greatly enjoyed our week at the Galini Lakehouse in Pakenham. The house is very well stocked and had everything we needed and more. Our family spent mornings, afternoons and evenings on the dock as the light changed across White Lake. Adults and children enjoyed the clear and calm water for daily swims and canoeing. Hard to believe this great get-away is only an hour from Ottawa!

The lake house and property are stunning. The house is well laid out so everyone has space. We had a wonderfully relaxing week. Watched some amazing sunsets on the dock. Definitely booking for next year.
Winter Wonderland

Three generations of our family, plus two dogs, spent eight magical days at Galini over Christmas. It’s a very spacious house with great views of the lake. Lots of private nooks and spaces to curl up with a book, work on a jigsaw or get together for board games at the large dining table. The grandchildren really enjoyed the office space overlooking the dining room. We hiked the lake and watched the ice fishers; cooked gourmet meals; enjoyed a day on the ski slopes at Pakenham; discovered High Lonesome Nature Reserve and spent half a day hiking their trails. It was a very peaceful and pleasant interlude. Quiet and private, the interior of the cottage is striking, with enormous two storey windows overlooking the lake. Thank you to our hosts for the wine that greeted us. You have a very lovely house and we look forward to revisiting again next winter.

Our family of 10 were most comfortable in the spacious lakehouse. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all. Thanksgiving supper at the generous sized table was a highlight. Many happy memories were made. A slight reservation was the high odoured water that was attended to immediately when reported, to the best of their ability.

Galini Lakehouse is one of our most popular locations and we're glad you had a great time. Since you stayed, the water system has been significantly upgraded and the water is great ( I stayed there in spring 2021 and can confirm there is no odor)
More beautiful than the pictures show!

Our family of 12 visited for Victoria Day long weekend. We had such an amazing time. Our kids didn’t want to leave with how much fun they were having. I must say that this property is even more beautiful than what you see in the pictures but what you see in the pictures is true it’s not deceiving in anyway. I can not wait to book an come back again. We even had a chance to interact with some of the neighbors and the area and the people in town are very friendly. Coming from the city we are not very use to the septic ideal so the smell from the well with the Sulphur threw us off the first day. But it is safe to cook with and bathe etc. Reaching out to the owner he was very professional and understanding and was able to reassure us and handle any concerns we had. This property is a gem.

I'm glad to say that since your stay the water system has been significantly upgraded and the water has no smell. I stayed there in spring 2021 so can confirm that. And it's true that it's hard to capture the beauty of the property in still photos - it's a magical place.
Enjoyed our stay immensely!

We were 3 families who rented the Galini Lakehouse for New Year’s and we really enjoyed the beauty and commodity of the cottage! We hope to see it in the summertime as well, and enjoy it fully! Our kids did not want to leave, and that’s usually a good sign! We would definitely return!
Galini Lakehouse was perfect for a much needed ladies getaway!

Galini Lakehouse was perfect for a much needed ladies getaway! The house is beautiful inside and out, well stocked and nicely laid out. The setting is spectacular with a gorgeous view and lovely waterfront. It’s very peaceful and feels very private because of the location of other cottages. And the owners were very responsive to any questions before and during arrival. We loved our time at the Galini Lakehouse and we would highly recommend it, especially for larger groups as it can easily and comfortably accommodate up to 12 people. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

Just the drive into Galini Lakehouse is a natural adventure as you will see, wild turkeys, bluejays, woodpeckers, foxes, deer and if you are lucky the odd little set of Bear Cubs. Once you arrive you immediately feel like you are at a special place. You drive down the short curvy picturesque driveway flanked by trees shrubs and well attended perennials and park while seeing the amazing view of White Lake. You will need to take a quick walk down the few steps or pathway to the lake where the lawn meets the water. The west facing view is going to provide you with outstanding sunsets every night of your stay. My grandchildren call it Their Cottage, since they have been there every summer for many years now. We bring our own boat and use the great dock which is safely nestled on the edge of the property in a beautiful protected bay. We have access to kayaks, canoes, lifejackets, paddles, etc all supplied at the cottage and we use them to explore the lake and shoreline seeing turtles, mink, muskrat and beaver. Every morning the Osprey and Gulls come by in search of their morning dive from the sky for a fresh fish breakfast. In the evening the Canada geese try to sneak in for a taste of the lush grass on the lawn. With all our activity they move on but are fun to see. On the lawn by the lake we fly our Kites, on the lawn to the side of the cottage we play soccer, baseball and have water balloon fights. As evening sets the fire pit is such a nice way to complete a busy day. I have not mentioned the fishing yet so be prepared to catch Bass, Pickerel, Pike, Perch, Rock Bass and Sunfish , if you dont have a boat you can catch fish right off the dock or from the canoe. Inside the cottage is a dream come true. We have my wife and I as well as my two daughters and their families join us and the 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms is outstanding. The kitchen is big and open and overlooks the lake. You can do your laundry, on the main floor and the cottage is clean and has everything you could possibly want. We have made Galini Lakehouse part of our families summer and winter get away experience and we treasure the memories we have created at this special place. The owners are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and they go out of their way to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. You wont be disappointed.
