“I had a fine view of the river and the room was freshly renovated, clean and comfortable, with some touches of decadency that made the trip feel special!”

“Booked an over night stay and were totally blown away by the location, right on the Rideau River in the historic village of Merrickville. Walking distance to eateries, shops and LCBO”.
