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.”
Log cabin on the Ottawa river is the ultimate retreat for nature lovers, just steps away from hiking, bike trails, the Luskville Falls and Gatineau Park. For those looking for nightlife/restaurants it's just 6 min away from Aylmer and 25 min from downtown Ottawa and the Parliament. The cabin is a separate building beside our house (8 feet away), but still very private and we respect our guests' privacy. However, if you’re looking for a place to have a party, this is not the place for you.
“This lovely cabin as is enchanting as the photos indicate. The view on the river from the second flood is great! The hosts were rapid in their communication and even went out of their way to bring us something missing that we didn’t have time to notice or request! The fireplace was ready to go - which indicates the attention to detail in their hospitality!”

“We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Johanne provided us with some breakfast food for our first morning. Very welcomed touched. The apt. Is well stocked with kitchen and food essentials. Easy to prepare home cooked meals. The Murphy bed is extremely comfy, outstanding Nano gel mattress. The space is very clean, modern and elegant, but spacious and comfortable at the same time. Bikes are provided and path down to the Ottawa River trail down the street. Great dog trails, quiet area,also there are two convenience stores + Tim Hortons hop and a skip away by foot. Shopping/restaurants 10 min drive. Downtown Ottawa about 15 minutes. We would stay again. Our dog loved too!”
