Unique cordwood roundhouse on 7 acres of unspoiled land dedicated as a wildlife sanctuary.
Ideal for nature lovers & for those who want to get away from it all!
Sleeps 7 on 1 Queen in Master Bedroom with Ensuite; 1 Double & 1 Single bed in Guest Bedroom & 2 Futons in Living Room. Stone fireplace & Jacuzzi. Fully equipped modern kitchen.
World Heritage picturesque town of Merrickville nearby: gift shops, art galleries, horseback riding & Rideau River locks. Capital City of Ottawa less than 1 hour away for Canada's 150th party.
The living area is very open concept & airey! The circular cupola ceiling & windows flood the Great Room with tons of sunlight!
The decor reflects three themes: Music, the Beach & Native culture. In particular, we are avid Beatles fans, lovers of the feel of sand on an ocean beach and proud of our Mohawk heritage.
Guests have access to the entire Roundhouse, with the exception of the garage, storage shed and small barn. Entry is by electronic keypad with your own personal code. Access is also granted for use of the swimming pool, (in season), & to the vast grounds with its abundant nature.
You will be greeted, checked-in and checked-out by either your Host or Hostess, (the owner's sister who lives off-site, but who is available by phone at all times).
It is not unusual to be visited by wildlife, (deer, rabbits, chipmunks, turtles, etc,), which have been known to come up to the windows. We respectfully ask that you do not feed the animals because that would interfere with their routine natural feeding habits.
The area is rural, but with several homes on large lots along a well-maintained gravel access road. A neighboring private stable frequently exercises their horses along the road.
Occasionally, the signal horn of a passing train can be heard cutting through the predominant tranquility of the area.
A car is essential if you want to visit nearby town and attractions. There is no public transportation. Parliament Hill, in the nation's capital city of Ottawa, is just a quick 50 minute drive.
Ottawa will be THE PLACE throughout this summer, when Canada celebrates its 150th birthday!+ More
