Derelict resort, Highway 16, Nepean, Ontario

Rideau Glen Lodge, est 1949

Derelict resort, Highway 16 (Prince of Wales), Nepean, Ontario

The Pappas family ran this resort for decades. My mother recalls having their annual staff picnic there in 1958-1962.

May 15, 2005: A thriving cottage resort in the 1950s, the buildings have stood empty for several decades. Now, it seems that they will be torn down, probably to make way for yet another non-affordable housing development for the well-off....

Friday May 20, 2005: I passed the location today and the cottages had been demolished. They are truly history.....

2013: the abandoned main office/restaurant/store was torn down after 9 years.
