Overview

Ottawa House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Welcome to River Roost.

Everything in this privately owned and managed home speaks of bright, clean, cozy comfort. Sunlight streams over the gleaming hardwood floors of this open concept design which is tastefully furnished with antiques and polished rosewood. The living room invites you to relax with a glass of wine while listening to your favourite CD. A clean, bright fully equipped kitchen awaits you with all amenities - full sized refrigerator, 30 inch stove, built in dishwasher and microwave ensure quick and easy food preparation. Laundry facilities and a treadmill are located on the lower level.

Your eye will travel over the beautiful gardens and well kept grounds, to the bank of the Jock River where a heron is frequently seen during the summer. Beavers, otters and ducks have been regularly spotted in the river, which is large enough for wildlife, but too small for motorized watercraft. Beyond the river lies quiet parkland

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Carol McCarthy

Roger and Carol will meet you upon arrival and give you a tour of the property, answering any questions you may have. They will also check in with you after a few days to make sure all is well.

Why Carol McCarthy chose Ottawa

This is a quiet and unique home. It will quickly feel like your home away from home. It is bright, clean and comfortable. It is within easy drive to attractions in Ottawa as well as drives in the country to small towns where you will get a real feel for the history and beauty of Ontario. We searched for 2 years before we came across this property and had only walked three steps into this house before I turned to my husband and said,'This is it, this is where I want to live.' Never had regrets. It is on the Homeaway site because we spend our time at our cottage right now. But don't want to give up this special home.

Clean, quiet, and peaceful - a home away from home for all ages.

  • 5 of 5
My mother’s last holiday was in August 2013 when she and I rented River Roost for a week. I had almost given up thinking I could find something suitable for my mother who, at the age of 90, required the use of a walker for support. We needed a bedroom and a full bathroom on the ground level. Another priority was that it was clean, well-kept, and well-managed.

I highly recommend River Roost. Carol and Roger were professional, kind, and accommodating to the concerns I had about my mother’s comfort and safety. In fact they installed a grab bar in the bathtub and provided a portable shower bench to fit in the bathtub. My mother was very appreciative as was I!

River Roost is a lovely spot to spend a week or two. The quiet and peaceful location is great with all amenities close by. The countryside is beautiful with villages all around to visit, and Ottawa is a short drive away.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure meeting Pamela and her mother. After a short discussion, not only had her mother worked for the same employer as my husband, but we had mutual friends. Such a small and amazing world!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 9 nights while getting our daughter settled into university in Ottawa. We absolutely loved staying here. I would actually love to live here year round! It was so quiet and peaceful and the back yard was beautiful. Richmond is a nice little community and we enjoyed going for walks and runs. We saw more foot traffic go by the house than vehicle traffic! We spent many nights barbecuing on the deck and many evenings just relaxing in the home. You truly feel at home here. It's a beautiful drive into downtown Ottawa and Roger and Carol were very helpful in giving us directions on the best routes to take and they took the time to help us out with any information we needed. Everything you could possibly need (and more) is available and the beds are very comfortable as well. Roger and Carol are very easy to get a hold of if you have any more questions during your stay. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and would love to stay here again! It's exceptionally better than staying in a hotel.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay when in Ottawa! We spent two weeks here and this is so much better than a hotel in every imaginable way. The owners were very prompt and efficient with their communications and overall very accommodating. The location was perfect for us - outside the city of Ottawa but centrally located so as to allow easy access to the city and its surrounding areas. In this little town of Richmond, we found everything we needed - bank, groceries, fresh seasonal produce at a kiosk on the main street and a great bakery (all within walking distance).

The house is exactly as portrayed in the photos and descriptions (or even better if possible!) It is obvious that the owners are extremely conscientious about their home. It is spotless and well-furnished. Their attention to detail is remarkable. There is absolutely nothing missing; everything you need for either a short stay or an extended one is provided. There is an abundant supply of linens, towels, dishes and pots and pans. Written instructions can be found for everything and the owners are easy to reach by phone or email. It was so handy to have a washer and dryer on the premises.

We spent a great deal of time on the deck where a barbecue and picnic table are located. There is a lovely view of the picturesque setting: river, gardens and a variety of birds. We even put their clothes-line to good use!

We would not hesitate to recommend this property. It was perfect for the two of us and with the two bedrooms and bathrooms being at opposite ends of the house, four people could be easily accommodated.

Thank you, Carol and Roger for sharing your lovely home with visitors to Ottawa! Hope to be back in the spring!

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home, very comfortable furniture and everything well-equipped - right down to fresh bars of soap! If you don't need to be right downtown Ottawa, this is a very convenient location to the general area, and not difficult to access the airport and other city amenities. On top of that, the neighbourhood is very quiet and the garden quite serene.

We have rented dozens of vacation homes over the years and this is by far one of the best we've ever stayed in. Carol and Roger greeted us and showed us around, as well as leaving a house "manual", but then left us to enjoy our privacy. The flexibility of booking start times is a real bonus, too.

Thanks for being such thoughtful hosts! We highly recommend your property!
