Overview

About the property

The perfect location!

For 10 years and until just recently this lovely building was the home of my own River Echo Language School where we hosted language travellers of all ages and from every corner of the globe.

This traditional home is within walking distance of all the great things Wakefield has to offer: fine boutiques, great eateries, exceptional live entertainment, galleries, and ... above all .. the great company of a very friendly community.

The Black Sheep Inn, Kaffe 1870, Le Hibou are there for all your entertainment needs.

Cafe Aries, Chez Eric's, the Pot au Feu, La Maison du Village, the Wakefield Mill Inn and Spa for great food and more.

The Community Centre offers a great palette of events, concerts, festivals and theatre.

And our beautiful perennial garden in the back is a beautiful oasis in which to relax, entertain, BBQ, do nothing, read .... No backyard neighbors, so you have complete privacy. Hike up the hill and join the Wakefield Trail system.

The chalet is fully equipped - linens, towels, DVD player, WiFi, stereo.

The kitchen can handle any size family dinner you can think of. Stove, micro, toaster, stove (oven will hold a nice fat turkey). There's a BBQ in the summer.

Washer and dryer have just been added, too.

Wakefield - A Regional Cultural Hub

Wakefield's cultural life is very rich indeed. There are several festivals throughout the year:

Dragon Fest - a winter carnival (January) put on by the Rec Association and ALL Wakefieldites

WIFF, a documentary film festival (February)

Writers Fest (May)

Wakefest - celebrating all our local arts (August)

Ta Da! - a performing arts festival (September)

The Community Centre offers a great palette of events, concerts, courses, workshops and theatre. Activities for all age groups.

The Centre features a kids' playground, a sports pad and skate park.

Wakefield is a very popular destination year-round. Whether you are looking for nature or culture or both - Wakefield is guaranteed to deliver.The public access to the Gatineau River with the municipal dock) is right across the road by the waterfront Peace Park - and it's a good spot for swimming, too.

There are 2 more public access points (one with beach, the other with lovely rock ledges ) within walking distance. If you're feeling more adventurous, jump off our famous covered bridge!

Nearby Gatineau Park has many lakes where you can swim - some with lifeguards, others not.

WINTER:

We are close to 5 ski areas - one of them, Ski Vorlage, is right here in the village! Great alpine skiing, snowboarding and tubing.

More than 200 kms of groomed X-country trails await you in Gatineau Park - just a few minutes away.

SUMMER:

If you're already planning for your summer holiday: no matter what your interests may be, Wakefield will not disappoint you. Hiking (we are right on the Trans-Canada-Trail), horseback riding, yoga, arts classes, open mike nights,relaxing at the spa, bungee jumping, golfing, fishing .....

One canoe is supplied, but you can also rent canoes, kayaks, bikes, waterboards, etc. 4 doors down the road at Expedition Wakefield.No smoking inside the house.

Perfect location...Wakefield is a gem.

  • 5 of 5

Kerstin was helpful and available for things along the way.

Super cute and workable house. A bit of a line up for the shower/washrooms when you have 6 dancers in the same house, but nothing that could not be handled. We would (((love))) to have a chance to stay there again, maybe a bit longer then next time;-)
