Olive the Lake

Marten River – Temagami Cottages for Rent


Welcome to your cottage experience at Olive the Lake, where the possibilities are truly endless. Rise before the sun, and sneak out to catch the fish you’ve always known was out there. Sleep in (like most of our guests do!). Ditch the daily grind and catch up with friends. Do the big breakfast for six days in a row. Do everything or nothing, it’s all up to you.

Our cottages are very comfortable, welcoming, and clean, and have been updated without removing the charm that we call a cottage experience. Our guests also enjoy the most amazing sleep experience with Tempur-Pedic Swedish mattresses in every room and every cottage.

Olive Lake is a 10 square mile lake that is very private and serene, and surrounds you with the vast wilderness of Northern Ontario, a place where you feel you have “all of the lake” to yourself. See more wildlife than you could shake a stick at (we don’t recommend doing that, though!), explore our many islands and inlets and disappear into the middle of nowhere. Fish for Pike, Pickerel/Walleye, Bass and Perch, it’s all out there just waiting for you to show up. Bring your own boat or rent one from us, your adventure awaits.

Olive the Lake has been featured several times on Extreme Angler TV and the World Fishing Network in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

“Man did we have a great time at Olive the Lake! Can’t stop talking about the great times, ton of fish and of course, the awesome cooking! It was great to share the time with other guests and their families as well. Only one day away and already feel homesick for Olive the Lake. But, we`ll be back…real soooooooon I can promise that! Karl Kalonka – Host of Extreme Anger TV
