Description

On the outskirts of Ottawa, 15 min from Parliament, in the beautiful village of Chelsea.

Guest are welcome to use bbq, hot tub and outside dining area. Pets are welcome provided they are well behaved. A dog run is available should you wish to leave your dog for the day for an additional fee. Place is ideal for retreating to nature after visiting and touring the beautiful city of Ottawa. It is also an ideal place to stay for those racing in the Gatineau Park or surroundings. Fine cuisine staurants , pubs, the grocery store and the famous Norkik Scandinavian Spa are just 5 min. away.

Small apartment in my home with its own private access. Dog runs are available to rent if you bring your furry friend. Outdoor trails for walking or snowshoeing right from house.

I live on the property and am available at all time. I am also able to care for your dog for extra fee as I have a dog walking business.

Ideally located to visit Ottawa yet be able to retrieve to nature in your own little apartment surrounded by forest, mountains, a creek and river. Also close to the Gatineau Park with its public beaches, the Old Village of Chelsea and Wakefield which attract tourist of all areas every year. Wake up listening to birds while sipping coffee or watch the sunset over the mountain.

Although close to everything you will need a car to get here. AWD is best during winter months.

We have lots of snowshoes for you to explore the forest trails in winter. Dog runs are a available for extra $20 a day. Dog run must be reserved ahead of time. Bring bathing suit to enjoy the hot tub at the house or plan a day at Nordik Spa. In summer time you can swim in creek, river or nearby Meech Lake

Great location close to he Gatineau Park and Ottawa. Close to nature and trails and short drive to Old Chelsea. Was travelling with my dog so this was perfect as Marie-Josee's place is VERY dog-friendly. Overall she was very helpful and accomadations were as described.

Great escape so close to the city. Marie - Josée is a fabulous host, made me feel comfortable right away. Invited me for nature walks and camp fire which my little furry companion Luna appreciated greatly. The apartment is as described, I found everything that I needed, just have to ensure to do a little bit of groceries for next morning but if you want there are many options for eating out in Old Chelsea which is like 5 minutes drive. Definitely, will plan another relaxing trip at Marie-Josée.

This was my first Air BnB experience, single female who spent 2 days at Nordik spa which is very close by. Marie-Josee is a very nice host and connects with you promptly to answers all questions and provides information as needed. The reviews on this above ground basement apartment are realistic. She has a dog walking business and has several dogs on the property which was fine by me. Comfortable living area and bed room with ample towels and toiletries. Nature all around you. If you expect complete quietness during your stay, this is not the place for you. Josee lives upstairs and dogs will start to move about around 7am. She does try to limit the noise as best possible. For a single female is provides safety having some one near by. I hope to return next spring/summer to enjoy again.

The apartment and location were lovely. Marie-Josee was very welcoming despite us arriving early. The apartment was well stocked with towels, robes and fresh blankets. The furniture was all very new and everything was very clean. Marie-Josee was helpful in showing us some great places and eat and swim and she even took the time to show my boyfriend some trails. On the first night she suggested we have a camp fire and I am so glad she did. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time taking in the peaceful stillness of her property at night under the stars. The dogs on her property were friendly! I can't wait to come back!

MJ's small basement apartment was a cozy place to start our journey's into Gatineau Park. The kitchen has what you need to do some cooking, make tea, coffee, etc., though it lacked a fry pan for eggs in the morning. Lots of space inside for a couple and the shower in the bathroom is tall enough for 6' person. The setting is very private and quiet. Had some early morning wakeups from noise upstairs in the main house, but MJ had made us aware that she would be up early. MJ left us the password for the Wifi which worked well for mapping out our journeys. Wouldn't recommend staying if you have allergies to dogs. Though the dogs were not running loose, it was clear they were in the apartment often. Had to wash dog hair off the dishes before using them, and I took Claritin all weekend to help with breathing. The location is great to enjoy Chelsea and Gatineau Park. MJ gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and biking trails. But you should contact her before going if you want to take advantage of the restaurants she suggests to ensure you can make reservations and get in. MJ has a hot tub on the deck that was nice to enjoy after a day of biking in the park. She also mentioned there's a variety of walking/hiking trails right off the driveway, though we didn't get a chance to enjoy them. One cautionary note would be travelling to the location in winter weather. The gravel road that leads to MJ's place is full of very steep hills. My car would definitely not have been able to make the journey if there was ice or snow on the hills. (Though having come in the fall, I have no idea how the road is maintained in the winters) Overall we enjoyed our stay in Chelsea, and would recommend this place for a couple or single person looking to visit the area.

It's a really charming studio into the woods ! Very closed of Ottawa and the Gatineau's Park ! Marie-Josee is really nice, she knows her place and she's happy to talk about that ! I will come back during summer of course !!!
