Large walk-out suite on the water! 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath and common room
I live in the River House with my wife and daughter. White-water drew me to the mighty and majestic Ottawa River close to 30 years ago and it holds a special place in my heart. I worked as a raft guide and professional kayaker on the Ottawa River and internationally for well over two decades. These days, I enjoy the River House and continue to enjoy many aspects of the beautiful and dynamic Ottawa River, from the white-water to the cottage lifestyle.

Perfect place for enjoying Whitewater Region
This was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting the Whitewater Region. Chad is a very friendly and helpful host who gave us many recommendations for outfits for kayaking and rafting. The remodeled walkout basement level had plenty of room for our family of two parents and three teens. The beds were comfy and the view of the river is unbeatable. The bathroom is really nicely remodeled and the small kitchen is basic but functional. The grill was especially nice to have. Great water access with kayaks and a canoe for getting out on the river.
We brought groceries with us but were able to run up to the Walmart and Metro in Pembroke for things we needed.
While we were there, we really enjoyed:
Whitewater rafting with OWL. A well-run trip and tons of fun.
A full-day guided kayak trip for my husband and son and a three-hour clinic teaching my daughter how to roll at Liquid Skills. A very professional outfit that’s the real deal in taking your kayaking skills to the next level.
The full adventure package at Chutes de Coulonge over in Quebec. Especially the zip lines and via ferrata.
Crepes at the Nook in Pembroke.
We really hope we can come back again!
Ce fut 2 jours de relaxation et de tranquilité.
Chad est un propriétaire aimable et gentil toujours prêt a rendre service.
Nestled in the whitewater capital of Canada and cottage country, The River House is a waterfront grey stone bungalow with a red tin roof and a newly renovated, rustic, walkout basement level apartment with beautiful views of the majestic and infamous Ottawa River where each of the three rooms have a picturesque view of the water. There is no shortage of outdoorsy fun and adventure with some of the best white-water rapids in the world nearby. There is also some amazing mountain-biking and hiking.
The River House is only steps away from the waterfront where you have access to a sprawling green lawn, sandy beaches, a dock and clean water. There are two sit-on-top kayaks available for your use and you are welcome to BYOTs (Bring your own toys). For white-water paddlers, the public put-in is only a 10 min drive away and the take-out a 20 min drive. There is white-water rafting available and white-water kayaking including kayak instruction, guiding and tours in 2-person kayaks. Please inquire for more info. Flat-water enthusiasts have waterfront and beach access 75feet from the walk-out door. The River House has a recreational motorboat that is well-suited for scenic early morning or sunset evening tours or water skiing, wake-boarding or tubing. Please inquire about availability and pricing. For mountain bikers and hikers, there is a network of excellent trails based just outside of beachburg and along the mighty and majestic Ottawa River for all skill levels. Please inquire. Road biking is also very popular in this rural and scenic area. Pembroke, a small city of 15,000 is only 25 mins away and has all of the amenities one would expect or require. The quaint and pleasant little villages of Beachburg and Westmeath are only 10 minutes away and also have many amenities. The cute, tiny and picturesque village of Lapasse, commonly referred to as ‘LA’ is a mere 45 second drive or a 2km walk from the River House and has a small general store, church and a boat launch. There are two locations to purchase alcohol, one being Kenny’s General Store in Westmeath and the LCBO in Beachburg. There are a few restaurants in the area, one being the very popular Whitewater Brewery. Please ask for more info and/or directions.
