Beckett's Landing Summer Resort

This was the Beckett’s Landing Summer Resort, built by Cecil Beckett in 1927 and a favourite place for boaters and swimmers on the Rideau for many years. There was a store, a lunch counter, and small cottages for rent. The resort was situated on what was then Highway 16, the main road between Ottawa and Prescott. Once the swing bridge was taken down and the new highway bridge erected in 1936, the resort wound down and the building is now a private home on a quiet dead end road.
