Barn wedding

  • 5 of 5

The barn is great! Beautiful property, very close to lac Phillipe and Hannah, the owner, was very nice and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. We're already making plans to go back.

Great spot to spend some time

  • 5 of 5

We've used The Barn for an annual meditation retreat for 4 years now and it has been perfect for us. Very clean and in a great location.

Lovely place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at The Barn for the family day weekend and we had a lovely time. There were 18 of us and we filled the available beds! We appreciated the addition of a crib for the smallest member of our family - thank you. The common rooms and kitchen were spacious and well-equipped for our group (aged 1 year to 80 yrs) and everything was clean and tidy and warm when we arrived.

This is a great property for a group gathering as it is close to Ottawa and local conveniences yet you really feel like you are enjoying nature while you are there. We enjoyed snowshoeing and skiing on the trails in the property and I imagine that it would be even nicer in the summer when lake access is available. We spent our evenings by the large fireplace playing games in one room while some of our group watched a movie in the next room. Having separate common rooms was great since our group had so many different ages.

Thanks for a great weekend :)

Our compliments

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time this past weekend at the Barn.

> I don't think the set up could have been any more perfect. Lots of room to spend time together or to take a moment to yourself.

> We were very impressed how well stocked the place was and how very cosy.

> We would definitely like to return some time in the future.
