Located adjacent to Newboro Lockstation in the beautiful village of Newboro, the Canalman's Cottage features the original canalman's house relocated in 1941 from the southern side of the lockstation and subsequently enlarged and modernized. Situated only 200m walk from the municipal boat launch, the house accommodates up to eight people with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room with propane stove, eat-in kitchen and a 6-person patio set with views of the neighbouring woods. 

The Canalman's Cottage is located in the village of Newboro and a short scenic drive from the villages of Elgin and Westport, forty minutes from the City of Kingston and Highway 401, and 1.5 hours from downtown Ottawa.
