Looking for a short commute to your cottage? This idyllic area is popular with cottagers for its lakes, rivers and hiking trails. Only an hour’s drive southwest of Ottawa, the postcard-pretty town of Perth, on the Tay River, has long been a popular daytrip for Ottawa residents, thanks to its historic limestone buildings, restaurants and shops and its tranquil river setting.
The area from Perth to the village of Westport, about another 25 minutes south, thrives with summer cottagers who enjoy a peaceful getaway in such easy distance of the capital. Attractions include boating and swimming at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, about 15 minutes south of Perth. You’ll also find studio tours, music festivals and museums. Don’t miss Foley Mountain Conservation Area, which offers hiking trails and spectacular views of Westport and the Rideau Lakes.
