This listing is for the Getaway Room in our home.
Welcome to our beautiful home in the fabulous village of Chelsea, Quebec – 4 seasons of outdoor fun in the Gatineau Park! We are a warm and welcoming family. This is a great spot for you if you love the peace and beauty of the country and the convenience of close proximity to the city.
Our home was built in 2010 by custom builders. The design is a nod to Cape Cod style with modern and elegant finishes nestled in the forest. Our home includes 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and open concept living with lots of natural light. There are hardwood floors on two floors and carpeting on the lower level. Our home has large beams, many windows, a walk out lower level, an 8-person hot tub and a wood fireplace to keep us cozy in the winter.
Our custom designed kitchen is a chef’s dream, with professional grade appliances, including a BBQ on an adjacent screened-in porch.
There are two rooms available for guests($100 / room / night, maximum 2 people per room) :
The Forest Room can be reserved through a separate listing (www.airbnb.ca/rooms/1080691). It is a large bedroom with a comfortable queen bed suffused with natural light and surrounded by trees. This bedroom is on the main floor and is adjacent to a full bathroom with a shower.
The Getaway can be reserved through this listing. It is a very large, private bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. There is an adjacent, private ½ bath and a private entrance (outside of snow season). It is located on the lower walkout level of the house with the hot tub and family room – where you can relax and watch a movie. A bathroom with a shower is located on the main floor.
We are in the heart of the Gatineau Park, with access to trails right from our front door. In the summer you can walk, hike, bike, swim, paddle and go on beautiful scenic drives. In the winter, there are hundreds of kilometers of world-class cross-country skiing (classic and skate), downhill skiing, tobogganing, and snowshoeing.
It is an easy 2 km walk into the beautiful village of Old Chelsea, where you will find shopping, restaurants, cafes and pubs, gift shops, art galleries, an ice cream shop, a grocery store, hardware store and the Nordik spa. See guidebook for more details.
It is a short 15 minute drive into downtown Ottawa, where you can find all the arts and culture of a capital city. There is public transit (2 buses into Ottawa in the morning, two return in evening) that you catch at the bottom of our road.
We look forward to meeting you.
Always great ;)
Always great !!
Eric & Jacki were wonderful hosts! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The area is beautiful and even without a car we enjoyed the walks into town and got a generous ride into Ottawa with Jacki on our way home. The bed is super comfortable, the hot tub therapeutic and the DVD collection extensive! Highly recommended!
Eric and Jackie were great hosts and very helpful.
Our getaway room was very clean, the accommodations were fantastic overall. The distance to Spa Nordik was key and made for a great last day of a vacation after a weekend in Tremblant.
9/10 would defiantly stay again!
Another perfect stay with Jackie and Eric. Really, the fire place, WOW, sooooo good!! Thank you!
