Transcendental River Boat Cottage Beached on the Shoreline
Enjoy a rustic off-the-grid solar powered 48 foot house boat converted to a cottage. Nice sandy beach, firepit and grilling equipment. Electic estemmed houseboat turned cottage. What a cool experience!

The space
Take our canoe for a paddle on the lovely river, grill on the outdoor firepit and gaze at a zillion stars in the clear night sky. Let the the rustic beauty of our bay with waves lapping at the sandy beach and tree lined shoreline relax and rejuvenate you and your loved ones. Sunrises and sunsets on the river are gorgeous!

Guest access
As our guest you have access to a private beach and also a shared beach where we store our watercraft such as canoes, and small sailboat.
You can canoe the river for several kilometers or take a hike up to our maple sugar bush as we are providing a trail which is 4 km round trip or you can visit our organic garden up by the barn. If you bring a bicycle you can bike the abandoned rail line and go to the famous resort of Norway Bay.
There a two local golf courses, 9 hole and water water rafting just up the river at white water country.

Tom and his family are running an alternative gardening operation called Zero Carbon Garden. They grow organic vegetables which they sell at farmers markets and also do community supported agriculture (CSA). "We want to share and educate visitors at our secluded water frontage along the Ottawa River. We encourage people to visit the gardens, smell the flowers, and even pull a weed or two. Partly to show people, especially kids where real food comes - the soil. If you want to help in the garden we often trade vegetables for your effort. We make and sell maple syrup from our sustainable sugar tree forest. I am a professional technical writer. I write poems short stories and with one novel published I am working on a sequel to the Pilgrimage of Amos available on Amazon or at my cabin or house. My joys each day are: - meeting new travelers to Canada. -bring people from all over the world together to see how life can be simple and beautiful is why I like to host people - playing my fiddle and guitar around the campfire and kitchen table. Karen is a co-host and Amy has the Transcendental Cottage listed here are also hosts at this property each with a distinctive and unique philosophy about the river and the environment along the shoreline. We all take great care to treat our guests like the wild environment along the river shore - with great care! Once we meet we can exchange stories and perhaps grow a sensible place on the planet. " Peace
