Wakefield - Winter Retreat Minutes from Ottawa
With Highway 5 finished all the way to Wakefield, you can enjoy true country living and still be close to all the urban pleasures Canada's capital has to offer.
735 Riverside is a beautiful traditional home with high ceilings and hardwood floors.
It features a large covered veranda out front and a very private backyard with no neighbors in the back.
The downstairs features a bright foyer, a lovely living room which opens up to a dining room.
The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, fridge, stove (oven big enough for a large turkey), dishwasher, toaster. Washer and dryer in the basement.
You have 3 spacious bedrooms (1 queen, 1 double, 2 twins), all with closets - it comfortably sleeps 6. A full bathroom upstairs as well as a powder room downstairs. All towels and linens are supplied.
Another smaller room is set up as a small office with a desk and printer for your work needs. Or it could be an additional single bedroom.

The house 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 Gatineau River is right across the road (public access right there).
We are right on the Trans-Canada-Trail.
If you're an alpine skier or snowboarder: we are close to 4 ski areas: Ski Vorlage is right in the village, Edelweiss, Camp Fortune and Mont Cascades are just a short drive away and even Mont Ste. Marie is only 30 minutes.
If you prefer x-country or snowshoeing: Gatineau Park is close by and has more than 200kms of groomed X-country trails. Walk out the back door and connect to the Wakefield trail system.
This would make a perfect ski chalet for a family or a group of friends.
There are lots of possibilities for outdoor activities. You can launch the canoe or go for a swim at the municipal dock across the road. 4 doors down the road is an outfitter who can set you up with canoes, kayaks, wakeboards and bicycles.
Hiking and swimming is wonderful in Gatineau Park. Horseback riding is available in several locations.
The Black Sheep Inn, Kaffe 1870, Le Hibou are there for all your entertainment needs.
La Toque, Cafe Aries, Chez Eric's, the Pot au Feu, the Village House, the Wakefield Mill Inn and Spa are just some of the places to find great food and more.
The Community Centre offers a great palette of events, concerts, festivals, theatre and family programming.
Not bad for a small town of about 1,000 people, eh?
Wakefield is a very popular destination year-round. Whether you are looking for nature or culture or both - Wakefield is guaranteed to deliver.
The owner operated a language school for international language travellers in this building for 15 years - she is a great resource person and guide for off-the-beaten-track activities.
