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.”

“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!”
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.
“Debbie and Jacques have created an oasis by the river. It feels like you're sleeping in the trees with all the windows in the roof and French doors that open to a massive second floor private patio. The pictures don't do the space justice. Jacques has fully renovated the kitchen and the upstairs bathroom (with a tub, sink and toilet) and he's done it with flair and attention to detail. It's got a cottage/vintage feel, but everything is spotless and updated. The red retro fridge, the vintage table, and the antique ceiling tiles used throughout are cute and playful touches. The enormous second floor deck is private and we enjoyed an evening drink by the gas fireplace overlooking the water. Jaques and Debbie are generous with their beautifully landscaped gardens and it's easy to find privacy on their big property. We swam every morning and had our tea by the river, with our dog playing nearby. The A-frame log cabin has skylights built into the roof so that you feel totally connected to nature and we slept with the doors open and let the river breeze flow into the room. Sunrises and sunsets are stunning. The hosts were quick with communication and tips, have thought of everything their guests might need, are friendly to chat with and the cabin is spotless, very welcome during Covid. We were so relaxed staying there that we felt we had a week of vacation. The cabin is a nature escape not too far from Ottawa, and was a perfect home base while we visited family in the city. The town of Aylmer is nearby for cute cafes and the hiking at Luskville Falls is amazing. The nearby trail system is also fantastic. We can't wait to come back in the fall and enjoy the downstairs fireplace and cozy living room.”
