About Julie Vincent

My wife and I live in Guelph Ontario. I am a geologist at the University of Guelph, my wife is a practitioner in Biontology. Our property manager is a long time resident of Griffith. Julie is a graduate of Travel and Tourism and Esthetiques, currently working from her home and is a talented jewelry artist.

Julie Vincent purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Julie Vincent chose Ontario

This property is very private and nestled on beautiful & clean Jeffers Lake. It is surrounded by lush forest. As well as the lake there are 2 ponds that support so much wild life. The cottage boasts that it is completely off the grid. We are the second owners to this unique cottage of cordwood construction. The nearby village of Griffith is home to so many talented artists. The beautiful Madawaska River flows through, all the way to the Ottawa River and houses several hydro dams.. It's lower portions, Centennial Lake and Black Donald is one of the largest, most underdeveloped lakes in Eastern Ontario with approximately 250 miles of shoreline and provides excellent fishing and recreation. There is over 40km of boating. Public boat launch only approximately 12 minutes from the cottage on Matawatchan Rd.

What makes this cottage unique

This property captivated us from the first time we were visiting with the original owner who was the designer and builder. We shared the same dream of being away from the crazy pace of life, and being so close with nature. It's just quiet and peaceful. To sit on the dock with a book and just breath and notice how in tune you become with singing of the birds, the croaking of frogs, the splash of a fish grabbing is supper from the surface of the water....... its just priceless. We could never spend enough time here, so we decided to rent, we knew others needed to see this piece of paradise.

Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what my husband and I and our 2 teen-aged grandkids needed! A great place to decompress and get unplugged. The house has so much charm and I appreciated the fully updated kitchen. We spend hours together on the dock reading, fishing and talking. We had our breakfast there the last day. Beautiful, peaceful little lake and since there are only a few other homes we only saw a few people on the other side of the lake. Only 1.5 hrs from Ottawa. I would love to return during one of my visits to Ottawa.

Endroit charmant et très confortable !

  • 5 of 5

Le chalet était parfait, avec un grand terrain et un petit lac où nous nous sommes baigné et fait du bateau. Très confortable et propre.

Note : Pour ceux qui sont sensibles, achetez de l'eau en bouteille car l'eau du robinet est potable mais à un goût très fort de fer !

one of a kind cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was great, clean on arrival. The necessities were there and more. We fished and caught Rainbow and Speckle trout. Paddled around in the boats, had a bon fire every night, watched movies on a evening when it rained, cooked on the bbq. Great cottage experience.

Serene

  • 5 of 5

Had such an amazing weekend. Was so happy to be back. As my grandparents built this home it was our family's getaway for 23 years before they sold it. So happy to see it being used and such great condition :) Thank you for taking great care of a very important place on the lake! <3
