À propos de ce logement
Beautiful and modern country log home available for 1 to 2 weeks. Can sleep as many as 12. 3600 sq ft, open concept, cathedral ceilings, marble counters, and country walks.
30 minutes from downtown Ottawa in beautiful Luskville/Pontiac countryside.
This is a beautiful home - must see to believe. More space than you could need, including two "wings", west and east, 3600 sq ft total, and 1 1/2 acre yard with forest, pavement, and flowers.
If you are relaxed about sleeping arrangements in terms of privacy, this house could fit as many as 12 to 14.
Careful, though, it is VERY open concept. Two of the three bathrooms have doors, but the one on the east wing 2nd floor only has a curtain because the whole second floor is loft-style.
One bedroom has a closing door, the second is private but only by way of walk-up stairs to the third floor on the east side. The other sleeping spaces are in the open concept loft area of the second floor of the east wing, or the living room of the west side.
The old (1994) part of the house is big, round logs. The new part (2004) is square logs. The house is truly gorgeous and compares a lot to Montebello - it even has the same windows.
Unfortunately, the house is beautiful but hard to describe. If you are hoping for private space for, say, 4 couples and intimacy at night, then 2 or 3 of the couples will be disappointed. There is only one bedroom that is completely private, the other is private but no door to block the stairs up, and the rest open concept.
If, however, you are a large family or OK with the above, you will love it here.

We will be away, but either our father-in-law or we will be reachable if needed.
We live in Luskville, which means you're out in the country, but still only 30 to 35 minutes to downtown Ottawa. We're nestled at the foot of the Eardley escarpment, with a view of the mountain and trees. It will be beautiful in summer, great for hikes down the country road and into the mountains, if adventurous. There are horse farms all around, and a local winery nearby on the 148.
No public transit - you'll need to rent a car and/or use your own. We could rent you one of ours for a cheap price, if need be. Nearest grocery stores are in Aylmer and Hull (12 to 15 minutes), and there is a general store 5 minutes away.
I would suggest maps for instructions from the airport.
There will be two cats at the house while you are here. You have to be willing to give them dry food, change their water, and let them in and out. They don't use the litter box in summer, and spend most of their time outside in nature. Our house is very much in nature! You may hear wolves in the distance, and will see birds and other animals. Horses regularly trot by from the horse farm down the road!
We please ask that you smoke outside, and be careful not to set the pine needles on fire!
You must also be willing to have our cats with you, keep their water and food full, and let them in and out. They don't use their litter box in the summer, though!
Also, please see the general description to understand how open-concept and not so private parts of the house can be.

I am a lawyer. My wife is an artist. We have a big, beautiful house, with more space than we actually need. We thought this might be a way to share the love we have for our home and help make ends meet on the side. We have four children, two cats and a dog.
I love to learn different languages. I can speak English, French, Spanish and Dutch, and can even say a few things in German and Japanese.
