Where you’ll be

Horton, Ontario, Canada

The Babbling Gourmet farmhouse is located in the heart of the beautiful Ottawa Valley. We are located close to the towns of Renfrew, Cobden, Eganville and 100KM from the city of Ottawa.
We are surrounded by pristine farmland occupied by dairy farms, cash crops, beef farms and 17 Mennonite families selling hand-crafted wood furniture, maple syrup and vegetables. We are close to the Ottawa River and many outdoor activities like zip lining, white water rafting, hiking, biking, skiing at Calabogie Peaks and boating in the nearby rivers and lakes. Hiking opportunities are also endless.
Popular local attractions include the Bonnechere Caves, Logosland, The Whitewater Brewery, NHL Museum in Renfrew, the Bonnechere River and many country fall fairs. Burnstown is also a must-visit (only 25 minutes away).

For those of you looking for a rustically elegant getaway within an hour of Ottawa, this is the place for you! We are located an easy 45 minutes to Kanata and less than an hour to downtown Ottawa; barring any traffic issues. Many of our local residents commute to the city for work. It's a straightforward trip along the 417....allowing guests to have a taste of the Nation's Capital.

I am a former cosmetics industry CEO (you may have seen my Dragons' Den pitch on the Season 4 Premier in 2009 for Mistura Beauty!) now living what feels like my dream on a farm outside of the Nation's Capital.

After almost 20 years of pretending to be a chef...I escaped the rat race and finally became one! I host super fun & delicious dinner parties, special family events and getaways for people needing to re-connect with nature and even themselves...

I LOVE socializing, networking and bringing people from all parts of the world together over food, laughter and the sharing of life experiences. Having lived as an ExPat abroad for over 11 years, I value, respect and love all cultures and diversity. *Note that this is a 100% GAY FRIENDLY and MULTI-CULTURAL FRIENDLY establishment*.

To help with relaxation, I built an 1100 square foot cedar deck around the farm house and filled it with Muskoka chairs, propane heaters, beautiful planters and a 5-man hot tub with lounger; yet another epic space in which to look up at the stars, enjoy a camp fire or nap.

I live here with my adorable husband Hayden, a giant Woolly Alaskan Malamute named Tawa and a Huskador named Luna. I also share the land with deer, wild turkeys, bears and fox.
