Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Your home away from home is a cozy semi-detached house centrally located in one of Ottawa's most desirable neighbourhoods and just steps from the UNESCO world heritage designated Rideau Canal. Museums, galleries, shopping, outdoor markets and restaurants are within an easy walking hiking distance. Ottawa is a four seasons destination. In the spring enjoy the beauty of thousands of tulips and participate in the Tulip Festival. Ottawa is alive with the sound of music during the summer months. Major summer outdoor festivals include a Jazz, Blues, Folk and Chamber Music Festival. In the fall Ottawa is ablaze with the colours of autumn. And who can resist an Ottawa winter and the experience of skating on the second longest skating rink in Canada while munching on a beaver tail pastry? These are truly unique Canadian experiences you will not want to miss! However, if you feel the urge to get out of town, Montreal is a two-hour drive, Toronto is a five-hour drive.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Although our neighbourhood is close to major attractions in downtown Ottawa, it is very quiet and peaceful as it is nestled between the Rideau Canal and the Rideau River. It is a great place for walking, biking, and relaxing after touring the sites of Ottawa. With the opening of the Flora Footbridge in June, 2019 my house is in one of the most desirable locations in Ottawa.
