Description From Owner:

  • We have eight rental units, 1 unit....3 bedroom, 5 units...2 bedroom, 2 units... 1 Bedroom
  • We provide some linens, wood for camp fires, Satellite television, microwave, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, as well as charcoal barbeques. We rent fishing boats, canoe and sailboat.
  • Bring your own boat and dock it at no extra charge. We are located on the south side 8 miles from Hastings and 17 miles from Bewdley.
  • We bring in sand for a beach and cater to families with young children as well as groups of fishermen. Many villages and tourist sites in the area make it fun to explore.
  • Accommodations: cottages, beach, billiard room, satellite TV, dumping station
  • Marine Facilities: boat / motor rentals, boat launch, tackle, docking, canoe rental, sailboat rental
  • Rice Lake is known thoughtout North America for it’s Muskie fishing. The deeper waters on the south end of the lake are your best bet. Trolling is the best method. While 10-15 pound muskies are commonly caught, some fish in the 30 pound range are caught
  • For spring walleye, check out the weed flats around Bewdley. Also the mouth of the Otonobee river has proven a good spot. Try jigs tipped with minnows or worms. Once summer hits, you’ll do best in the deeper channels on the south end of the lake.
  • Largemouth bass can be found in those same Bewdley weed beds. Also off the mouth of the Otanabee near Cow Island. You could try going up the Otanabee and hitting the lilly pads near Bensfort Bridge.
  • Smallmouth can be found in the deeper waters. The drop-off near Tick Island is a good spot. Crappie fishing is great in the spring. It is quite common to land 1 pound crappie.
  • Rice lake is very shallow rarely reaching more than 25 ft. Weedbeds and mudflats are abundant. Panfish abound in these waters and where there are panfish, you’ll also find predatory fish, such as bass, walleye, and muskie.

John Mills on 18-Mar-24
Great cabins right on the beautiful water of rice lake. We had a deck right off the back of the cabin on the water with amazing views. The lady and her husband that own and run the cabins are so very friendly and are super accommodating with everything. I look forward to coming back again and staying again in the future. 100 % 5 stars. Thank you very much for such a pleasant stay.

We had a wonderful time. The lake was beautiful. The hosts, Albert and Myrna and her daughter were great hosts. Would definitely go again.
