"The Loft" is a rustic, converted turn-of-the-century barn sitting on the northeast shore of Lake Saint-Pierre de Wakefield, about 35 minutes (40km) north of Ottawa, just off hwy 307.
The ground floor is a wooden canoe-building workshop, used only when the loft â€œapartmentâ€쳌 is vacant.
** Additional pictures of the Loft and the grounds are available on request **
The living area is the â€œopen-conceptâ€쳌 2nd floor loft. It features a large south-facing window looking out over the lake, a comfortable and sunny sitting area with an airtight wood-stove, a well equipped kitchen, a separate dining area, the master bedroom, and a 4-piece bathroom with laundry facilities.
A smaller 3rd level loft (up a very steep staircase!) provides additional sleeping for up to 6 persons (2 single beds, a double bed, and a double futon).
The 4 acre property features large landscaped garden areas overlooking the lake, with 400 feet of waterfront. Floating docks extend 60â€™ out into the lake.
The LOFT is also an ideal staging area for private functions of all kinds; weddings, informal family reunions, artists exhibitions, or small corporate functions and company picnics. Full service meals, barbeques or basic catering can be arranged.
Attractive shade tents and extra canoes are available at very reasonable additional cost for outdoor functions.
In summer, the region offers the possibility of many water activitiesâ€¦ miles of canoeing, windsurfing, and sailing off the dock in front of the barn. Or, for the more adventurous, use the barn as a base camp for wilderness canoeing and camping on lac Poisson Blanc, a short drive away.
In the winter, arrange an inter-lake dogsled trip from the front door, or explore the lake on your kick-sled. A number of local ski hills and cross-country trails are within easy drives.
Ottawa, the nations' capital, is 35 minutes away.
