Experience Ottawa’s urban delights while staying and playing in the woods at the one-of-a-kind winterized Lazy Cabin! Outstanding waterfront location with dock, canoe, kayaks on the wild Gatineau River. Located an unbeatable 17 minutes to downtown Ottawa.

Fully equipped, classic Canadian cedar log cabin modernized with eco-friendly upgrades (including high efficiency wood-burning fireplace insert, plus electric furnace), located an unbeatable 17 minutes from downtown Ottawa. Secluded amongst 200-year old white pines on hilltop 1.5 acre lot, at the trailhead of Gatineau Park’s 363 square kilometers (226 square miles) of pristine Canadian wilderness, overlooking the mighty Gatineau river… and yet so close to town that you can take full advantage of both worlds!

Semi-private riverfront is great for swimming and boating. Canoe and kayak, mountain bikes, “Green Egg” BBQ, outdoor tent, bonfire pit, trampoline, and WiFi also included. Good privacy, plenty of parking and great hiking/biking trails in Gatineau Park. An outdoor sports paradise for all seasons.

AN ECO RETREAT
Our location is beautiful – isolated on a quiet peninsula jutting out into the Gatineau River, nestled amongst huge white pine trees. Riverfront to the north and east, pristine forest and wetland adjoins the property to the south and west.

The cabin incorporates a high-efficiency air source heat pump for heating and cooling, natural lighting from skylights set in a new R40 high-insulating roof, and makes great use of local materials and wood panel reclaimed from the cabin during the roof retrofit. There are plenty of operable windows, which allow for natural cooling at nights. Floors are a mix of reclaimed maple hardwood and beautiful slate and pebble mosaic in living room and bathroom. A reclaimed cast iron clawfoot tub allows for long baths. For colder nights, there is a high-efficiency wood-burning fireplace and a supply of firewood sustainably harvested by the owner. A clothesline is provided for line-drying clothes the natural way, and there is a compost vessel in the garden.

There is also an efficient “Green Egg” barbecue for which we provide the hardwood charcoal – delicious for BBQing, fish, and smoking.

Guests will enjoy our herb garden and a new “forest garden” of berry bushes (some of which may bear fruit during your visit), fruit and nut trees. Lounge in one of our hand-made Mexican hammocks and enjoy the flower garden, wildlife, and forest garden!

OUTDOOR DETAILS
Our quiet waterfront area on the tranquil Gatineau river includes a canoe and one adult kayak and kids kayaks with paddles, and life jackets. Our beautiful dock lets you lounge in the sun on the river. Note that dock may be shared with two other families. Swimming in the river is fun, and several sandy beaches are nearby.

The property includes patio seating, a firepit for bonfires, a Green Egg BBQ, and outdoor tent covering a picnic table.

The Lazy Cabin is great for families, with child’s bunk bed (also sleeps an adult), a fun treehouse, zipline (for passengers under 80lbs), forest playground area and large trampoline.

2 mountain bikes and one road bike come with the rental. Casual riders will enjoy riding our country road and the beautiful dirt road winding through the Meech Creek valley and over an old-fashioned covered bridge, just 3km away. Excellent single-track mountain biking can be found within 1km (ask the owners for directions to the trails), and some of Canada’s best mountain biking is nearby, including downhill courses with chairlift at Camp Fortune. Road biking enthusiasts from Ottawa come up Hwy 105 right past our road every weekend – it’s a great country ride, and the Gatineau Park road network offers gorgeous views and thrilling hill climbs.

INDOOR DETAILS
The cozy master bedroom loft can be found up a spiral staircase, with art and book nooks, fitted with queen-size bed that sleeps 2. A sturdy hand-made bunk bed for kids or adults (sleeps 1) is on the ground floor. The front bedroom has an additional twin futon that sleeps two. A pull-out couch in the living room also sleeps 2.

The cabin is built around a gorgeous fieldstone fireplace made by a local master in the 1940s, and a spectacular “tree of life” slate and pebble mosaic in the living room. The cabin, which serves as the owners’ home during cooler months, is decorated with rare and unusual masks and artifacts from their world travels. Comes complete with a library.

An open-concept and high-ceilinged living room, sitting area with picture windows overlooking the forest, and log walls throughout make for a relaxing atmosphere. Full bath with artisanal slate floor, old-fashioned tub/shower.

The fully equipped kitchen and dining area includes everything you might need for preparing meals at home. We provide: Cooking utensils, pot, pans, silverware, dishes, a coffee machine and bodum, a toaster, and other kitchen essentials. The cabin is equipped with an electric stove, a large fridge, a chest freezer, and a microwave oven. Cleaning supplised and a vacuum cleaner are located in the kitchen closet. Emergency candles; flashlight.

Outras coisas a ter em conta
There are stairs to get up to the cabin and a woodsy trail to get down to the waterfront. Not ideal for people who are mobility impaired.

It was love at first sight for Greg when he first encountered the Lazy Cabin's wooded property and beautiful log home with its fieldstone fireplace. He previously lived on the Gatineau River in nearby Wakefield and knew how a hectic day can be transformed by spending time relaxing on the water. The biggest attraction to the lazy Cabin was its unbeatable combination of privacy, wilderness access, and close proximity to the best cultural attractions in Ottawa. You simply cannot find rural properties this close to a major city almost anywhere else on the continent.
