Wakefield estate description

The Barn is located in a rural setting 30 minutes drive north of Ottawa, Canada’s capital. It is often used for family reunions, group gatherings, retreats and weddings, and is available over weekends and longer.

The home is a converted barn, inviting and warm with century exposed beams and a large fireplace. It is very spacious, able to sleep 17 people + 3 bed sleeping cabin. Ideal for large groups and families. There are three full bathrooms and parking for 35-40 vehicles

The property has many walking trails and is adjacent to Gatineau Park. Bordered on the North by Lac Gauvreau and on the South by the La Peche River, this idyllic property is a great place to relax or use as a base to explore Ottawa, Wakefield and the Gatineau Hills.

The Meadow Room: sleeps 7 with 1 queen, 2 bunk beds, and 1 single
The Cedar Room: sleeps 2 with 2 singles
The Forest Room: sleeps 5 with 3 singles and 1 bunk bed
