Cottage on the River
Lovely well appointed home on the Rideau River. Freindky neighborhood where lots of people walk their dogs and kids play in the street before school.
Cute house, nice and clean, well-furnished kitchen.
Also the rooster decoration is awesome and fun :)
Great location and very comfortable
We had a nice stay at this property in March. There is lots of room in this house and it is well stocked with everything you will need. The location is great, by the river with a large park a couple of minutes walk away. Downtown is only a few minutes away. The second bedroom in the basement was a little cold however the supplied heater helped. We would stay here again on future trips!
Perfect for our holiday trip to Ottawa
The house was spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable. The layout is unusual and the kitchen is a little cramped, but that did not detract much. It was nice to have two sitting rooms and also the large basement with bedroom and bathroom so that our adult daughter could have some privacy.
It would have been nice to have: bar soap in the bathroom, a snow shovel, a functioning Bodum coffee maker (the top piece was missing) but we had no other issues. The view was lovely and we enjoyed the walk along the river, just across the street. Also, lots of room for two cars. Location was good, convenient for everything we needed to get to. We hosted our family Christmas dinner for eight people here and it worked out beautifully, using the lawn chairs for a few of us. Definitely recommend Lisa's house especially if you are going to be in Ottawa for a few days or longer-term.
Perfect house on the river
We stayed in this lovely home as longer stay guests in order to access convenient medical care at both the Ottawa General and Riverside campus. The home was especially comfortable, orderly, stocked with basic supplies, washer/dryer, BBQ, and the thoughtful assistance from Lisa and the owner were so appreciated. A special highlight of this home was the front porch with comfortable wicker chairs overlooking the walking trails and Rideau River. The neighbourhood was warm and welcoming with easy walking to Bank Street, TD Center, and Billings Bridge Shopping Centre. This house and neighbourhood are truly gems in a large city and helped us enjoy a stunning summer in Ottawa. It would be wonderful to return again! - Diane and Wayne R.
The house is conveniently located for out of town visitors
We arrived in the evening and was met with Kristen the following morning for a Q&A session. The layout of the home was good but there were issues regarding cleanliness and housekeeping which Lisa kindly addressed.
The outdoor spaces were adequate the deck and patio furniture need a little love. We were quite stressed about the ants in the house Lisa tried to address it, however it could not be remedied for the 12 days we were there due to scheduling issues with pest control
This left my husband and I at each other’s throats fighting off the ants, it was unpleasant and stressful .
We hope it will be rectified for future guests.
For convenience and good housekeeping we recommend the dates for garbage and recycling pick up be available for long term guests so they are able to meet these services. Lisa gave us a new garbage can with a tighter lid as the existing one was tired and was constantly ravaged by animals in the evening thus our mornings were spent cleaning the driveway.
I guess we were just unlucky to have been met with these inconveniences this time around but we’re optimistic about the future improvements of any property and look forward to perhaps a future stay.
The home’s location made visiting with our family in Ottawa a treat and our morning walks along the river were memorable.
