Port Loring Resort, Ontario

Lodge / Dining

Captain Ed Kelcey built a log house on his property at Toad Lake. In 1918 sparks from the smoke stack of a passing steam boat, the Nellie Bly, ignited the house. Three years after the house burnt down Captain Kelcey built a tourist camp called Mirror Lodge. He added two cottages. During the war years the resort was shut down.

It was sold to Norman Bottrell in 1945. During the 25 years the Bottrells owned the camp they built two more cottages and made many renovations. 1970 the camp was sold to Jack Cummings and then in 1972 to Tony Chinnici, then to Walter Johnson who again sold the place in 1988 to an English man. The name of the lodge was then changed to Lancaster House Family Resort.

In Fall 2002 we bought the resort and changed the name back to Old Mirror Lodge. The name refers to the magic mirroring effect of the lake on its surroundings. In our fully licensed restaurant we offer you fine Canadian dining. On our sundeck you can enjoy the pristine scenery of Toad Lake (former Mirror Lake) and the greatest sunsets and star-studded skies. We are operating the resort for guests with modified American plan/house- keeping.

Our cottages are direct on the lake. With every cottage a boat is provided for your entire stay. You have direct access to 70 km waterways of the historical Pickerel River System.
