"Land O' Lakes
The name is apt: Part of the Frontenac water system, Land O' Lakes is as large as Prince Edward Island and contains 5,000 pristine glacier-formed lakes—some don't even have names.

What you'll pay $150-$600K.
Typical cottage A three-bedroom, four-season place with 202 feet of sandy beachfront and a detached two-car garage sold last summer on Sharbot Lake for $379,900.
Endorsement "The lakes are clean and healthy. And each one has a personality and an environment that suits different needs," says Alison Robinson, Lake District Realty. "For example, White Lake doesn't allow powerboating or fishing, perfect for sailing and swimming."
Ideal for Cottagers into outdoor recreation. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle for three days straight, and the huge trail system is great for activities such as biking, hiking, skiing, and sledding.
