About our home

Our home is a beautiful log structure with a cathedral ceiling, loft, spiral staircase and finished basement. The main floor is an open concept with lots of light and space. The main floors are hardwood with a tiled basement, kitchen and area rugs...there is full carpet upstairs. The kitchen is quite large with gas range/oven and lots of counter and cupboard space, pass through window and eating counter. There is a front porch and a full back deck with a full BBQ, grill, wet bar and prep station. Great for outdoor entertaining!! There is also a swing bridge connecting to"Margaritaville"...a small enclosed tree top bar!!! Quite unique! There is a full bathroom upstairs with shower and bath and a small watercloset on the main floor. The basement has a finished bedroom, bar, sauna, jacuzzi, shower and its own entrance outside that leads down to the river and guest house...which is also in the trees!!! This is a two-level tree house (easily accessible from the ground level) that sleeps 10...bunk house style! This is a great hang-out for kids, parties and guests! It is equipped with electricity, running hot and cold water, outdoor shower, and composting toilet. Fantastic view of river and area! Because of the rural locale cable is not available, however, there are at least 4 DVD/VCR/TV units throughout the house and treehouse and lots of movies available.
We have 4 children (8-13) and the house is great for kids...and pets too! The house is very welcoming and warm!


More about us

  1. We are a family of 6 (4 kids 8-13) who love life and live for adventure! We have travelled quite a bit including sailing for two years and RV'ing across the US. We are very open and love kids and pets. My husband and I are in our early 40's and self employed...we own a very nice restaurant/pub in Perth and also an on-line appraisal service. We are out-going and love to entertain friends and family. Our home is designed with fun in mind...and at every turn you will find something unique...compliments of the imagination of my husband! His current project is a hobbit hole!!! I will load pics as they become available!!

    We want to go to Ireland this summer(2007)for a month, but next summer we are open to suggestions. Let us know where you are and let's do a trade! We can also do winter trading for a few weeks if you are into skiing. We have a great ski hill about 30 minutes down the road. If we do a winter trade, we would want to go somewhere warm.

Where is it?


We are in a country/rural environment on the banks of the Mississippi River (not the same as the US one!)The sound of running water is constant and soothing!! Swimming in the river is great and a wonderful easy ride down the rapids in kayaks is fantastic! Lots of open space, fields, farms, and close to quaint towns with great shops and restaurants. One hour easy drive to Ottawa...tourist attractions, shops, airport, food, big city stuff!! Closest sizeable town is Perth (20 mins. pop. 6,000) very quaint with lots to see and do. Fantastic, friendly neighbours in a close knit, rural community ..always eager to help! This is very much a rural/small town area where everyone knows each other and is quite approachable. Lots of contacts in case you need help with anything...everyone knows us!!
We also have a little basketball 1/2 court on the property, however it is not paved. We also have another waterfront property just down the road (walking distance)with a gorgeous spot to have private waterside BBQ's (there is a propane BBQ there) and lots of water sports stuff. We have all sorts of water craft/tubes/kayaks etc.
We also have access to 200 acres (old family farm now owned by good friends) accross the road and this property has meandering well marked nature walks all over it. We are an outdoors/fitness oriented family and have 6 bicycles also available. If you are considering a winter swap, we have tons of snowboards and boots of various sizes too. Local ski hill gives lessons!
