Great host and amazing place
Nancy is a great host and is always available to help if ever needed. The place is magnificent with incredible and panoramic views of Meech Lake. The place is extremely clean and very nicely appointed. One of he best features is the kitchen which spacious and a joy to cook in. I would recommend to anyone.
Our family spent 3 memorable weeks tucked away in this luxurious retreat on Meech Lake over the holidays. The home felt comfortable from the minute we got there. In fact, the two fireplaces were blazing when we walked in, thanks to Nancy's hospitality. We love to cook and the kitchen had all the amenities we needed and more - the double gas oven and le creuset cookware were a real luxury. The area had trails for snow shoeing, hiking with crampons, skiing (day and night), skating on the lake, Nordic spa, Chelsea Pub, and only a 20 minute drive to downtown Ottawa.
Having only one TV was perfect - we enjoyed lots of cards games over the break. Outside stairs and inside stairs to the loft (tv area) were a bit tricky and required some care when using. One more bedroom for our second adult son would have been ideal (just two bedrooms which we did know going in) but we made it work.
Thanks, Nancy, for making Christmas 2019 a holiday we will always remember!
Beautiful home in spectacular area. Totally relaxing.
Excellent home, well stocked with everything you need. Perfectly relaxing and peaceful rural location, but minutes to events in Ottawa.
Cozy, well-appointed cabin on the lake
This is our second visit after discovering this beautiful home last February. Enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend. Feels like visiting someone's well-loved home. The kitchen is very well stocked, making it easy to host a big turkey dinner. Nancy is very prompt and helpful in her responses. Ideally the couch in the loft would be the fold-out, instead of (or in addition to) the one in the main living room but otherwise, we managed to sleep 4 adults comfortably. Hope to visit again in the future.
Gorgeous home, in a charming town
Nancy’s cottage on the hill exceeded our expectations. The home itself was larger than pictured - high ceilings and beautiful tile floors - very open and airy. It was perfect for us and our 3 pre-teens. As other reviewers noted - there is a steep climb up rocky stairs - so take note when packing. The boathouse across the street offered gorgeous views of the lake; plenty of room to sun or sit inside for some shade. There was zero boat traffic, just lots of swimmers and kayakers. The town of Old Chelsea was absolutely charming, offering great restaurants and bakeries. We can’t wait to return!
Great house and surroundings, but the sleeping situation could be better for five grown-ups
Wir verbrachten wunderbare Tage in einem wunderschönen Haus. Man spürt, dass das Haus von der Eigentümerin sehr geschätzt und geliebt wird: Toll eingerichtet, perfekt ausgestattete Küche, Klavier, Bücher und Zeitschriften.
Aber die Schlafsituation war für uns - Eltern mit drei großen Kindern - schwierig. Denn neben einem guten Schlafzimmer mit breitem Bett und Fenster, gab es nur noch ein Zimmer mit einem 1,35 m breiten Bett, dessen Fenster eine nicht zu öffnende Dachluke war. Dann gab es noch ein Ausziehsofa im Wohnzimmer, dessen Matratze nicht sehr komfortabel war. Dazu konnte keines der Fenster in irgendeiner Weise verdunkelt werden. Also: Perfekt für drei - bei fünf Gästen müsste noch nachgebessert werden.
