This is a rustic spot between an old barn and farm sheds, with a light use County Road on one side, and the view of a marshy shallow bay and low mountains in background on the other side of the greater Ottawa River. It is located 400m from our house, so the spot is quite reclusive and somewhat secluded; (but you will be located +/- 50m from a ´relatively' quiet secondary country road.) Due to the remoteness from our home, the site is very tranquil, and you will be left to your privacy; We might come by briefly once or twice a day to verify if everything's OK related to the site . Very rustic and rural, but can be picturesque, depending an your taste. Has direct access to the end of a marshy bay, and a short nature walk / path. The mentioned County Rd 24 is a designated Cycle Route in both directions. Area is also great for canoeing, kayak, photography, birdwatching, meditating, etc. NOT recommended with children. Suggested Local Attractions:Town of Alfred. Alfred Bog(walk) Conservation Area. The Alfred Lagoons. Ottawa River. L'Orignal Beach. Town of Hawkesbury/ Le Chenai (Watershore Park), Town of Grenville, QC; Olympia Bowl(ling) in Hawkesbury, The Riviere Rouge/Park(ing and trails), Park de Voyageurs/ Voyager Park. L'Orignal Jail (museum). Prescott Russel Rail Trail: a previous railway bed which is now a Bike/Walk Path. Contact Us: Shaun or Sylvie, for more information, if needed...

    What a delightful setting to wake up to... sounds of geese across the marsh... we had an issue with our motorhome slide. Shaun was so helpful, providing a ladder and some tools to help us get on our way.... a big thanks from us 😊

    Shaun was a great host. Came out to meet us, got us all settled in. Then came back to make sure we felt good. Had a lovely view to the lake and a restful night. Shaun came by the next morning to ensure all hood. Great host!!

    Très belle expérience pour notre premier Boonedocker Welcome. Site super beau. Vue sur la petite baie. Complètement seuls. Tranquille. Électricité disponible. Circuits de vélo directement du site. Shaun et Sylvie étaient en vacance et nous quand même permis de nous installer sur leur terrain. Des gens très généreux. Très disponibles par téléphone et par e-mail. Nous avons adoré.

    L'endroit n'est pas spécifié sur gps, il faut demander à schaun l'adresse. Mais ça vaut la peine, beauté, quiétude et intimité + gentillesse des hôtes. Christ et Max
