Next august Im getting married. My future wife and I both are avid kayakers. So naturally we want to have our honeymoon on the Ottawa river.
I thought it might neet to rent a cabin or something but it has to be close to the river.
Anyone have some tips on where to look?
the curtis cabins are definitely more appropriate for slumming with the boys (very rustic!!!) than a honeymoon, no matter how outdoorsy she is!
Check with MKC – I have tried to rent a cabin there in the past just to kayak out of, but was told that they were only for rafting clients. You may want to raft for a day for a lark and to have access to their cabins and food which is likely fabulous if it is anything like at MKC.
We have a guest house available for rental on the Ottawa. We are about 15 mins to the put in. Don’t forget the Petawawa (awesome river and a great change of scenery) is only about 45 mins away as well. Drop me a line and I can send you more info and some pics.
Skyhill bed and breakfast is out near Nangor resort upstream of Rocher Fendu.
It a pioneer log farm restored by a wonderful German family.
They have at least one private cabin and the atmosphere and attention to detail by these folks is really special.
They are on the deserted end of a beautiful bay (almost like a small lake)with a mile long sandy beach.
This place is special.
check them out at skyhill.ca
Nangor Resort is on the other end of that bay and is run by another wonderful family.
They have rooms, cabins, a restaurant, boat rentals etc.
This is much more (resort) but the new construction and attention to detail by Danny the new owner is adding to the atmosphere created by the original owner make this a great accomodation option for boaters.
