The White Pines Resort is owned and operated by Shawn and Valerie Popkie and their family, Brandon Taylor & Madison. Winner of the Calabogie & Area Business Associations' "Excellence in Store Front Presentation", and commended by our MPP John Yakabuski, and MP Cheryl Gallant, for "enhancing the picturesque beauty of the Calabogie area", and "creating a peaceful retreat, nestled among the majestic old-pine forest". Our 7 housekeeping cottages have been recognized as the most beautiful and well maintained in the area. We have 6 two bedroom units, and 1 three bedroom. All of our cottages have private decks overlooking the lake. Enjoy breathtaking views while drinking your morning coffee. When looking at our rate page, please note that we INCLUDE all of our taxes (13% HST in Ontario).
All the cottages have full bathrooms. There are well equipped kitchens with a full size fridge, stove and microwave, coffee maker, dishes, utensils and all cooking equipment. In each bedroom the comforters, pillows and blankets are provided, but you will need to bring sheets and pillow cases. Each cottage has a picnic table, fire pit, gas BBQ if requested and deck chairs. The grounds are dotted with many perennials and annuals gardens for a stunning show. The grass is always lush even in the driest months, thanks to our irrigation system.
With all of our cottage rentals, the use of our paddleboat, kayaks and canoes is complimentary. We also provide motorboat rentals so you can get out and explore the lake.
We supply the hardwood for the indoor fireplaces in the winter season, and have split poplar firewood for sale for the outside fire pits delivered right to your door during the summer.
All cottages are pet free, self catering/housekeeping units. There is one free boat docking slip per cottage. June 15th to Labour Day we rent by the week only (from sat-sat). The rest of the year, we rent on a daily basis with a two night minimum (except during the Christmas holidays which is a 3 night minimum). If there is a last minute cancellation during the summer, we will post it on the availability page, and at that point will rent the cottage on a daily basis.
Two Bedroom Standard Cottages
There are 5 two bedroom standard cottages which are all waterfront and have either private docks, or the main board walk for boat docking. All have 4 piece baths, except cottage #4, which has a 3 piece. #2, 3, 4 and 5 have a double bed in each bedroom. #6 has a double bed in the downstairs bedroom and two twin beds in the upstairs bedroom.
There is electric heat in all the cottages for those cool nights. Cottage #2 is fully winterized with a gorgeous Vermont Casting wood stove and is open for the winter season. Imagine yourself sitting in front of a cozy crackling fire after spending the day snowshoeing on our groomed trails! Prices on these units are based on occupancy of 4 people.
All of the cottages have had their bathrooms renovated. Cottages 2 & 3 have brand new memory foam mattresses, and the rest will be updated in 2018. Please ask for pictures of the cottage you are interested in, and we can send them in an email.

The bedroom on the main floor has a queen bed, and the upstairs bedroom has a double. The couch is also a double futon.

We are so blessed to have the wonderful clientele that we do. We have forged wonderful relationships with our visitors, who come from all across Canada, USA and Europe. Many of our tourists have become an extended part of our family. It is a pleasure to upgrade the cottages and facilities every year as appreciation for our guests. Our charming lakeside cottages have been recognized as the most beautiful and well maintained in the Ottawa Valley and we plan on keeping up with that recognition.
Enjoy a romantic getaway for two in the beautiful wilderness of Eastern Ontario. Bring your family, strap on a pair of snowshoes, cross country skis or hiking shoes and take pleasure in the many miles of scenic groomed trails. This family resort caters to both, the adventurous, or those just wanting to enjoy the quiet solitude of nature. Many successful business retreats have been hosted here and we look forward to sharing ideas that can be customized for your company or group.
Please join us for a memorable vacation for you and your family in 2017/18.
