Your Perfect City Escape.
McCreary’s Beach Resort is nestled on Mississippi Lake; minutes from the historic Town of Perth and only 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa. We are a cottage resort that families can enjoy for a day, a week or a lifetime.
There is always something fresh and exciting happening on our resort. Children are building sandcastles, learning to swim, catching their first fish, roasting marshmallows and making lasting friendships that develop around campfires. We offer fun-filled activities for the kids and they especially enjoy visits from our mascots; Darren the Heron, Ricky the Racoon and Sally the Skunk.
We host a variety of family events throughout the season from pig roasts to Thanksgiving potlucks, surrounded by the fall splendor of Mississippi Lake. We shake up the holidays with Christmas in July and Halloween on Labour Day Weekend. There is no doubt we make memories that last a lifetime.
Mississippi Lake is known for its fishing, swimming and boating. There are a few islands where our families like to drop anchor and picnic. Our cottagers have free use of kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and a paddle boat. We also have a pontoon boat and a Skipper who is happy to offer pontoon excursions or tubing adventures.
