Little Italy is a rapidly changing neighbourhood that is becoming the place to be in Ottawa. Classic Little Italy homes like ours are mixed with grand Victorian homes, traditional walk-up apartment buildings and new high rises. Eclectic is the word!
With dozens of gourmet eateries to choose from along Preston street, you will never have an empty belly during your stay.
Venture further east up Somerset street and you will find a wealth of food options. Vietnamese restaurants abound in Ottawa's China Town, however you will also find a great selection of Chinese and Korean options.
Venture west on Somerset and you will hit Wellington St. Now you have entered Hintonburg. With a growing selection of some of the finest dining in the city and some excellent shopping, you won't be disappointed. 15 minutes on foot will get you to our favourites, Tennessee Willem's (awesome wood oven pizza) and the Hintonburg Public House. YUM!
We are located just a 10 minute walk from the Canadian War Museum, which is also the location of Ottawa's best summer party: Bluesfest! If you are looking for a place to stay with friends during the festivities, look no further.
Our home is also just steps away from Ottawa's own Bridgehead Roastery, where you can sip your morning brew while watching the roasting process for beans that are distributed to Bridgehead coffee shops across the City.
If you have kids, Plant Bath Centre has the best splash pad in the city and is a great place to hang out during Ottawa's notoriously humid summers.
We are close to major bus routes (Routes 85 and 2), 5 minutes to the O-Train station and 7 minutes to the Transitway (bus). Ottawa also has great bike trails.
Other things to note
We are a 7 minute walk to all Blues Fest venues and a 20 minute walk to Parliament Hill.

My name is Meghan. I am originally from the West Coast but I have been living in the Ottawa/Gatineau area for the last 12 years. We love this neighbourhood, and hope you will too. We are surrounded by restaurants, close to public transit and a leisurely walk from all the downtown sights.
As a host, I am pretty behind the scenes, but available if you have any questions or concerns. Please don't hesitate to ask questions about our home or neighbourhood. We want to make your experience the best!
