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 music. A clean, bright fully equipped kitchen awaits you with all amenities - full sized refrigerator, 30 inch stove, 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.
This home seems to be of interest to grandparents visiting their families in Kanata and Nepean as well close to Ottawa.
Roger and Carol will meet you upon arrival and give you a tour of our property, answering any questions you may have. They will also check in with you after a few days to make sure all is well.
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.
It is a great design with a curved oak staircase leading to a the master bedroom loft with a queen bed. A bathroom with shower is also on this level. The second bedroom is located in an extension to the original house. This has a full/double bed and has a full bathroom adjacent to it. This room also doubles as a TV room.
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.
Hi Carol & Roger:
Wow! For once the pictures of your beautiful home were great on the web but the house and grounds outdid the pictures. Our great first impression stayed with us the whole 3 weeks we had the pleasure of being in your lovely home.
We were definitely so pleased to immediately see the home was very clean and so well equipped and everything was so well organized with your notes etc.
We had great visits with family at your beautiful warm retreat and it warmed our hearts to be outside with our little Granddaughter and showing her all the geese, blue heron, turtles etc.
This was our very best homeaway rental and we hope to return again if we get the opportunity.
Thank you Again!
Harold & Joanne
We loved the photos on the HomeAway website but did not expect how exceptional this property was until we arrived. I can't say enough good things about our stay. The house was immaculate, fully equipped, and comfortable. The location was perfect and peaceful. Right on the river so we enjoyed much of our time on the patio. Carol was very attentive making sure everything was okay for us. Wish I could live there. Close to Ottawa and wonderful scenic back roads to many areas. All in all a beautiful vacation. You can't go wrong selecting this beautiful property.
We stayed at River Roost for 8 days and could not have asked for a better place. The house is super clean and well-decorated. It has everything you need, even condiments, sugar, spices, which makes it easy to cook. The area is quiet and the view of the river is a plus. It is super easy to travel to the capitale. The owners are genuinely concerned about making our stay a good and comfortable experience. We would certainly go back.
Beautiful house, very comfortable. Clean and well-maintained.
Owner was very helpful in any case.
We would recomment this property.
It was such a great getaway for our honeymoon! The house was very clean, with a lot of personal touches and character. The view is fantastic and the neighbours are polite. The town was rural and quiet, and just a 30min drive away from downtown Ottawa. Would come again!
