Luxury Chalet overlooking the spectacular Ottawa River. Walk the scenic old railway line along the breathtaking shorelines. Fish off the dock in one of the hundreds of surrounding fresh water lakes. Head across the river to one of the most remote and wildlife abundant parts of Quebec. Experience the towering White Pines of the Ottawa Valley with a 125 year old just outside your window. Take the kids cliff jumping down the river and bath in the many water falls just a paddle away. Deux RivieresON

The space

I have built a beautiful country home perched on a hill overlooking a breathtaking view of the Ottawa River. The pictures truely do not do it justice. This place really is magical. I can guarantee that the waterfront view you wake up to will never look exactly the same. The weather systems that stream down the Ottawa River make for a spectacular scenery. The interior of the luxury chalet is glistening with marble floors, lit with high effecient LED lighting, 25 ft great-room ceilings, open and spacious with a modern-rustic warm feel, boasts 2 large bathrooms each with walk-in steam showers and 2 large bedrooms, both as en suits. The cooking and dining area is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows boasting one of Ontario's most incredible views of the historical and prestegious Ottawa River. Not too big, not too small - the right size for a couple, small family, artist, musician, writer, student, adventurer, Ontario trvaller, cross country skier and snowmobiler. Equipped with in-floor heating, high-pressure shower heads, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and an outdoor BBQ, this chalet is perfect in size. The house has 3000 feet of waterfront access with multiple docks for swimming and enjoyment. If you dont have a canoe, you can use one of mine. I also have a boat launch if you want to bring your own boat.

Deux Rivieres is a very special spot nestled along the upper Ottawa River. The scenery on the water of the Laurentian hills is breathtaking. The river is home to many waterfalls which include some great swimming holes. You can access Mattawa by boat and grab a bite at a local resturant or head the other way and discover off-shoot rivers and waterfalls, cliffs and forests on the waters edge. . The golf course is about 10 min down the road.

This is a special place for creative people, families, couples, and likeminded friends.


LOOK OUT SPOT. Up the hill, there is a trail, just past the 2 tipi's, that will take you to a beautiful look out spot. It is a great view of the river. Highly recommend you check it out.

WATERFRONT; Down by the old train tracks, you will find a road leading down to the waterfront. The whole area (from the big tipi over to the boat launch) is yours to enjoy. You will find several docks and a few small boats down there.

THE OTTAWA RIVER: Their are so many special spots along the river, few of which I would tell many people about. You just have to explore for yourself. You'll be sure to stumble upon at least a few epic waterfalls. Just look for the drops in the landscape. Cliff jumping is abundant or for climbers, look out for some serious tree/rock climbing to be had on the steeps dropping off the Quebec side.

TOWN OF BRENT AND BRENT METEORITE CRATER; Up the Brent bush road, you will find an ancient meteor site called the “Brent Crater”. This is a place where thousands of years ago a massive meteorite hit the earth (albeit not as big as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs). There is both a look out spot for those wanting a short thrill, or a few hiking trails for those who want to see more. Just past the Meteorite site is the small town of BRENT which is one of the few remaining towns located inside the Park. Here you will find a general store and a unique 'old school' vibe. The colours coming off the trees are indescribable during the fall season. You have never seen anything like it. I have pictures.

The cabin was cozy and fairly well equipped. The water access and use of canoes was great.

This was our second year coming out to Matt's place and it was just as wonderful and enchanting as the first. The experience really begins on the last few kilometres up to the home. The air was misty, crisp, and smelled of pines. The actual home itself was clean, tidy, and had all the essentials we needed to sleep, clean, keep warm, and cook for four days. The canoes provided by Matt were put to good use. We took three of them and went up the river, eventually stopping after an hour of rowing at a beautiful small Island in the middle of the river. There is so much to explore and so much to take in that we see ourselves coming back here year after year because the views from the house windows never get old.

We had a great experience up at the cottage. The views were great the entire time, and it allowed us to really relax. The cottage was very comfortable and Matthew was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions. We had to walk down to the river from the cottage, but we loved using the kayaks and getting close to the water. The area overall was so great, we fell in love with it and hope to be back again!

We never got to meet Matt, but both Matt and Nora (Matt's mother) were very responsive with my messages. The view was stunning from both the front deck and the dock. The kitchen is fairly stocked with many utensils, dishes, and pots/pans, which really came in handy! Neighbourhood is very quiet and we really enjoyed our stay.

We had a great time at this very nice country house, as 5 friends. Very easy to find and close to the road, but still pretty quiet. Such a remarkable view, the pictures on the listing don't do it justice! Inside the house was OK, not super clean but comfortable. Wifi in the house didn't work, had to connect to another network which only had reception in the balcony. Not the biggest issues for an outdoors getaway! Kitchen stocked with plenty of stuff. Outdoors was amazing of course, but try to avoid going to this area in June: the endless swarm of mosquitos was a huge buzzkill in the windless hours, esp at 8pm. River was still a little too cold to swim in, but just being around this "pristine" water was enough for us... So peaceful. Matt's mom, Nora was very responsive and helpful, answered all our questions promptly. Can't really ask for more for a weekend getaway with friends.

I am originally from King City which is about an hour outside of Toronto. I grew up in a large family with 5 sisters and 2 brothers. At university I studied comparative religions and since graduating I have been working in forestry - reforestation where I oversee several tree planting and forestry maintenance camps. Most of my time is now spent in the Ottawa Valley where I live.
