Come stay in our cozy cabin nestled in the woods, alongside the Gatineau River. It’s just a short 15 minute drive from downtown Ottawa, followed by a beautiful five minute walk into the forest. This is truly an off-the-grid cabin experience with some perks, so come ready to disconnect and relax.
“This place was unreal. The location is within 10 - 15 minutes of downtown Ottawa but somehow you feel like you're in the middle of the woods right off the river. The view from the cabin itself was great. No matter what corner you looked out, there was nothing but trees with guided pathways from your parking spot or to the water. There was a firepit and barbecue outside within 10 feet of the wood supply and a few Muskoka chairs to chill out. The electricity is solar, and we had no issues charging multiple phones at once and had the exterior lights on for about 4-5 hours (we left them on by mistake). Only then did they start to flicker because of the lack of power. Inside the cabin there's a few board games, pots, pans, etc. If you're not an environmental junky then I might recommend bringing paper plates which you could use as fire kindling. We ended up boiling water which took about 5-10 minutes per use (which we didn't mind doing). She leaves you with a good supply of butane to run the portable stove, but no propane for the BBQ outside. All in all, this is an unreal place to chill for a weekend. You can easily sit back and relax with your favorite people, or even work using your phone's internet (LTE ran flawlessly). Carolyn was great. I noticed there was only 1 set of snowshoes, and without asking she brought a second. You're crazy if you don't like this place.”
Beautiful quiet retreat nestled in the wooded hills of Chelsea Quebec. Enjoy a peaceful getaway in this bright sun-filled one bedroom loft. Retreat from a day of hiking, biking, skiing or doing water sports in the grandiose Gatineau Park. Come and continue your rest after spending the day at the Nordik Spa. A mere 20 minutes from downtown Ottawa, our retreat is 10 minutes from Gatineau Park and 10 min from the Nordik Spa.
“Melanie's place is close to the Nordik Spa. She has a lot of nice touches, such as bathrobes, candles, cooking essentials, extra towels, extra blankets, bath salts and even two pairs of snowshoes. We never met Melanie, but when we asked questions - her responses was always very quick. We definitely recommend Melanie's place.”
This beautiful home is the perfect combination of luxury and seclusion, close to downtown Ottawa, Old Chelsea, Wakefield, Edelweiss, Camp Fortune, golf, tennis and the Gatineau Park. We look forward to having you as our guests in this special place.
“The gorgeous interior and breathtaking views make this chalet a getaway that guarantees beautiful memories. With a massive kitchen, huge bathrooms, fireplaces, sauna and spa, you couldn’t ask anything more. The forested setting makes you feel like you’re hours away but the vicinity to Ottawa makes everything very convenient. I would recommend this to couples and families. I’ll definitely be back!”
