Our Neighbourhood

We are in a country/rural environment on the banks of the Mississippi River (not the same as the US one!)The sound of running water is constant and soothing!! Swimming in the river is great and a wonderful easy ride down the rapids in kayaks is fantastic! Lots of open space, fields, farms, and close to quaint towns with great shops and restaurants.

One hour easy drive to Ottawa.tourist attractions, shops, airport, food, big city stuff!! Closest sizeable town is Perth (20 mins. pop. 6,000) very quaint with lots to see and do. Fantastic, friendly neighbours in a close knit, rural community always eager to help! This is very much a rural/small town area where everyone knows each other and is quite approachable. Lots of contacts in case you need help with anything.everyone knows us!! We also have a little basketball 1/2 court on the property, however it is not paved. We also have another waterfront property just down the road (walking distance)with a gorgeous spot to have private waterside BBQ's (there is a propane BBQ there) and lots of water sports stuff. We have all sorts of water craft/tubes/kayaks etc. We also have access to 200 acres (old family farm now owned by good friends) accross the road and this property has meandering well marked nature walks all over it.
