The River Den is a 4 season houseboat, docked in picturesque Wakefield, Qc on the Gatineau River. This dream boat is a floating tiny house which does not have hot water, electricity, or a fridge (we do supply a cooler). There's a cozy woodstove, cooking facilities and dry composting toilet on board.
“Bonnie was super warm, friendly and welcoming upon our arrival. She gave us an early check in time, which was a huge bonus!!! She was also helpful & informative on where to find everything we needed in the River Den. We were provided with a cooler, ice and a ample fresh spring water. The property itself was super cozy, inviting and had everything we could possibly need. We were quite happy to relax on the attached floating deck, do some fishing and also went for a refreshing swim. Note that there is a small beach about 3 min walk away that we checked out. We also went into the town of Wakefield (only a 5 min drive), for a walk to the covered bridge and to check out the various eclectic shops, cafes & restaurants. We will most definitely be returning and will be recommending this property to our family and friends. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us Bonnie, it was an amazing experience!!!”

“This place is a gem! beautiful and within an hour from Ottawa. Its an Eco home with very large living space. Main living room is large, four bedrooms and two baths. We travelled with two kids and they enjoyed the abundant nature surroundings. We enjoyed reading about the design concept of the eco home. The bedrooms and bathrooms all well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed. The place is tranquil and a beautiful getaway from town”
This beautiful home is the perfect combination of luxury and seclusion, close to downtown Ottawa, Old Chelsea, Wakefield, Edelweiss, Camp Fortune, golf, tennis and the Gatineau Park. We look forward to having you as our guests in this special place.
“The gorgeous interior and breathtaking views make this chalet a getaway that guarantees beautiful memories. With a massive kitchen, huge bathrooms, fireplaces, sauna and spa, you couldn’t ask anything more. The forested setting makes you feel like you’re hours away but the vicinity to Ottawa makes everything very convenient. I would recommend this to couples and families. I’ll definitely be back!”
