A couple of kilometers to the south, the river flows into Rice Lake--a large, scenic lake covering 100-square kilometers in surface area. The lake is full of fish such as bass, muskellunge, panfish, and walleye, and the water and its surroundings also provide a habitat for beavers, deer muskrats, turtles, eagles, herons, and ospreys, making it popular among fishers, boaters, kayakers, and wildlife enthusiasts alike. In the woods around the lake, guests will find trails, routes, and facilities for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and golfing as well (please see the Activities section for more details).

At Ganaraska Forest, which is about 30 minutes to the west, guests can enjoy hundreds of kilometers of multi-use trails, which wind their way through 4,452 hectares (11,000 acres) of woods that are home to a variety of wildlife, including white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and songbirds. Even more trails can be found at the Darling Wildlife Area, which is on the west side of the Otonabee River to the north of the cottage.

For shopping and dining, guests will find a variety of options at Peterborough, which is about 25 minutes to the north. The cottage is about an hour and 40 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport, where the nearest international airport is located.
