Bring Your Own Boat

Guests are welcome to bring their own boats when staying at our drive in cottages or cottages up the river.  There is no horsepower or  size restrictions for Ivanhoe Lake and river.  Ontario residents are required to have either a boating licence (exempt for short term rentals) or a boat that is smaller than requires licensing.  For more information please visit: 

Renting Boats

At our drive in lodge on Ivanhoe Lake, we rent Lund deep hull 14ft and 16 aluminum boats, with padded swivel boat seats, and 15 Yamaha 2 stroke outboard motors.  Most of our outpost cabins are 14 foot aluminum boats with engines ranging from a 6hp to 15hp gauged according to the size of the lake.

Boating License

Rental boats and boats with motors under 10hp are exempt from the requirements to have a boating licence.  For additional information about the requirements for a boating licence can be found at the following link
