About Chris Cowan
Growing up in outside of Constance Bay I always wanted to live on the water. This cottage is my former year round house. I am a Fulltime Paramedic and Volunteer Firefighter. Due to my shift work please bear with me as sometimes it might take me a little longer to get back to you.
Chris Cowan purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Chris Cowan chose Ottawa
I grew up in and around the area. It is located close enough to Ottawa but far enough away that you can relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. This beach/waterfront is some of the best in the Ottawa area. A nice sand beach with a slow gentle slope into the water with a sand bottom.

Relaxing vacation close to home
We had a fantastic experience at Chris’s Constance Bay cottage.
The pictures don’t do the cottage, or the beauty of Constance Bay, justice.
The cottage had more than enough room to accommodate our group size: 8 adults and three toddlers.
The bedrooms were large and all had comfortable queen beds.
The basement has been very nicely renovated, and the upstairs has a rustic cottage vibe, with modern amenities.
The backyard is fenced in (perfect for dogs) and includes a hot tub.
Now the best part: the beach! First off, the view of Constance Bay is immaculate. The Ottawa River is beautiful and the Gatineau hills can be seen on the other side of the Bay.
The water is perfect for kids as it is very shallow and sandy near the shore. The water has a very gradual decline, and remains shallow for quite some distance before dropping off. This may also be the only downside -it can be a bit difficult to swim since it’s so shallow. We mostly stayed at the beach in front of the cottage, so there may be better spots for swimming (our kids were super happy with the shallow water where we were).
We also brought a boat for a few days, which Chris provided a mooring option in the water in front of the cottage.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay, and we would highly recommend it to anyone, especially people with young children, a dog, or just looking for beautiful vacation spot close to Ottawa.
Great place to stay!!!
We really enjoyed our week vacation at the cottage. Family members had a great time, using the hot tub, canoeing and making smores by the fire pit. The house had plenty of room so people could find their own space to relax and unwind. Chris was quick to respond to our questions and lend a hand when needed. Awesome place-would rent again in the future.
Family friendly beachside cottage
A great spot for our family getaway on the Ottawa river. Cosy, clean, with every main feature you could want or need. Kudos to Chris who has clearly updated this place, paying attention to all the details!
Very Nice Place
Very clean and quiet place. The perfect recipe for a birthday getaway. There were only 4 of us and the cottage could easily sleep 8-10.
Bigger than it looks!
From the outside when you drive up it looks small, but it surprised us with how spacious the inside was. For our group, 4 queen size beds was perfect, and all of the bedrooms are nice just two are a little more spacious. The room with the pull out is also fairly private for not having a door. The walk-in closet in one bedroom was a great spot for a pack and play for the toddler with us.
The kitchen was well equipped compared to other rentals, with good quality pots, the only thing we thought it was missing was a good mixing spoon! The hot tub is great for up to 6 people at once.
The cottage was clean, charming and ready to live in.
Beautiful views and lovely cottage. It was perfect for our girl’s weekend. Would also be ideal for a family stay. Very spacious and comfortable.
