Overview of Ottawa Rentals

Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, is like no other in the world. While offering the majesty you expect in other national capitals, with commanding and important buildings and inspiring monuments, it still retains the charm and beauty of the natural landscape surrounding the city. Ottawa rentals offered by the owners are a great option for vacation lodging to experience all the community has to offer.

Ottawa Vacation Rentals Are Portals to a Multifaceted City

Cultured, bilingual, pretty and historic, Ottawa opens the door to just about every kind of vacation imaginable. Whether you want to hike through the Gatineau Hills to admire the colourful fall foliage, explore the heart of Canadian politics, see some of the world’s most exciting and eclectic museums or skate down the world’s longest skating rink, Ottawa's privately owned rentals are an ideal way to have a comfortable home base from which to enjoy it all.

Ottawa sits at the entrance to the Ottawa Valley, in the shadow of the gentle Gatineau Hills. With a picturesque canal and a majestic river, there are many great outdoor activities available all around the city. You can ski on some of the best hills in Eastern North America, hike through gorgeous countryside, skate on the Rideau Canal and bike along the city’s many riverside bike paths.

Attractions Start with Amazing Museums

Amongst the most appealing of Ottawa attractions are its many and wonderful museum. Simply said, Ottawa has some of the best museums in the world. From the great works of art on display in the National Art Gallery of Canada, to the fascinating walk through Canadian history at the Museum of Civilization, to the important collection at the Canadian War Museum, it is possible to spend every day of your stay in Ottawa at a different and equally excellent museum.

Aside from their collections, the museums in Ottawa are masterpieces unto themselves. On the banks of the Ottawa River, the National Art Gallery was designed by world-renowned Canadian architect Moshe Safdie both to reflect the Notre Dame Basilica across the street and to maximize the amount of natural light through its glass spire.

The other don’t-miss in the long list of Ottawa attractions is the Canadian War Museum. On the outside, the building resembles a ship, an airplane or a tank, depending on how you approach it, and on the museum’s fin, you will find the words “Lest We Forget” spelled out in Morse code.

Ottawa Bluesfest and Other Festivals

Ottawa knows how to celebrate. From Winterlude in the middle of February to the blossoming beauty of its Tulip Festival in the spring, Canada’s capital is a city of festivals. One of the best festivals here is the Ottawa Bluesfest. Every July, the city throws one of the greatest music festivals in all of Canada. Consider renting a house for spacious, private and relaxing accommodations, and come see artists as wide-ranging as Etta James, Sheryl Crowe, Alexisonfire, Ray Charles and Smokey Robinson. Ottawa Bluesfest is the largest blues festival in the country.

Ottawa is a beautiful capital city with much to offer, from excellent family activities to romantic restaurants and world-class culture. Book a trip to Ottawa to experience the wonders of this charming capital for yourself!
