Property description

Enjoy our Lord of the Rings themed 5600 sq ft house with several gathering or meeting rooms. The house can accommodate up to 20 guests. When not doing group bookings we also operate as a B&B near Merrickville, Ontario.

Please note that we are NOT a waterfront cottage. The Rideau river is a few miles away should you be thinking of going fishing. We are a very large home located in a small Hamlet called Eastons Corners. Surrounded by farms, including one across the road that sells fresh eggs, goat milk products, and other items. We are in the country but close to several towns if you forgot to bring something.

This house is perfect for large family gatherings or other group activities. There are 6 Suites, each with a bathroom. 3 suites have two bedrooms, 2 suites have one bedroom and a sitting rooms with a sofa bed that can sleep 2 persons. One suite has 2 beds (one king, one queen) in the same room. We also have an extra air bed available if needed. The Dragons Lair suite rooms share a bathroom from the hallway, and 2 other Suites (Knights Rest Suite and Master Suite) share a private bathroom that is located between the 2 bedrooms. There are a total of 6 full bathrooms and 1 powder room. One bedroom suite (Valinor) is located on the main floor and is accessible without needing stairs. Most beds are queen size with memory foam toppers, there are also 2 king and 1 twin bed.

Our large, well stocked 500 sq ft kitchen is centrally located and is often the focus of gatherings and fun. It has a stove as well as a gas cook top in a 10 ft long island , and includes two side by side refrigerators. In addition, there are 2 other large rooms, a sun room and sitting room, just off the kitchen, and a games room upstairs for our guests to enjoy.

We provide you with everything needed to make you feel relaxed and at home. We also provide free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. The expansive parking area is big enough to accommodate at least 9 vehicles.

Relax on our front veranda with your cup of tea or coffee and watch the the day go by or hang out on the back deck and enjoy something on the BBQ. Play a game of volleyball, or bocce or croquet or enjoy a campfire when outside; when indoors, a game of pool, darts, crokinole, or hockey or one of the many board games in the games room.

Vacation rental guests enjoy total privacy in the home. There will be only one group of guests at a time. Ideal for a large group who want their own private vacation retreat. Also ideal for wedding groups, reunions or any other group activity. The owners or their replacements when they are away will always call (or ring doorbell) before entering the rented premises (the pool and hot-tub must be inspected daily to monitor sanitization and water levels). We (or our managers when we are away) live in a separate basement suite and are periodically available for assistance and information as needed.

Our indoor swimming pool is available year round (a pool heating charge applies during winter months). The 5 person hot-tub and 2 person infrared sauna are also available year round.

Suitability: Low allergen environment. We rent to families and mature adults. Children are welcome, and especially enjoy our pool; sometimes for hours on any given day. Adult (over 14 yrs old) supervision required over children as there is no Lifeguard on duty for the pool/ hot tub facilities.

Absolutely no smoking in the house.
Pets NOT ALLOWED due to allergens for other visitors with sensitivities.

Our home is located at 223 Main St in Eastons Corners, Ontario. Pubs, restaurants, pizza and ice cream shop and liquor store are 10 km away in Merrickville. We are on Cty Rd 16 west of Merrickville and 15 min South East from Smiths Falls. We are also 30 mins north of Brockville.

In the countryside but within 1 hour of Ottawa / Gatineau, and 7 minutes from the lovely village of Merrickville , called Jewel of the Rideau, which is known for its charm, boutique shopping, many well attended events and its large numbers of artisans.
There are several golf courses within 20-30 min drive.

linens and towels are provided, all you should need to bring is food for your group and your personal items.

Note: When not doing a group booking, We operate as a B&B so to ensure availability for your large group, you are advised to book early. As soon as we get one B&B room booking for a given date we are no longer available for a group booking on that date.

We occasionally host Murder Mysteries where the guests are the characters. If you're interested in hosting one during your stay, please contact us.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a retired military couple and enjoy meeting new friends from all corners of the earth. Our skills are shared in the building of our home. One of us is more on the artistic side and the other more technical. Building the house for the most, by ourselves, we have learned to compromise with each other (sort of) to achieve something that we are both proud to share with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Merrickville-Wolford, ON, Canada:
We're in the country but close to several major cities and we're close to the Rideau Canal system. We purchased this half built house and spent 2 years renovating/ completing it. It has been a learning experience also very fulfilling because it allowed us to grow and display our talents.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
This is a fairly large house that has a comfortable feel of home to it. There are many areas that allow you to conduct different activities at the same time without interfering with each other. The long front veranda is a wonderful place to sit and watch the groups of cyclist ride by in the summer while enjoying the peace of the countryside. There are also several garden areas on the property and advice from other gardeners is always welcome.
