The Neighborhood

This year Carleton Place celebrates her 200th Anniversary! Come and explore the town!

Within walking distance from our home is main street, downtown. Here you can find a Tourist Information Centre, cafes (coffee, pastry, sandwiches), restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Thai, Western, and a Steak house) and a grocery store. A few minutes’ drive away are the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, the Roy Brown Museum and Information Centre, the Town Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, Parrot Partners Canada, the Canoe Club, the Mississippi Riverwalk Trail (for a leisure stroll along the river), and the District and Memorial Hospital.

Suggestions for Leisure Activities

If you like

Walking -- Carleton Place is a pedestrian-friendly town. You can take a "Self-Guided Walking Tour of Carleton Place" which will take you through historic buildings and sites in downtown and surroundings. A brochure is available in your room which gives details of this walking tour.

Another scenic walk is the Mississippi Riverwalk Trail. This trail takes you along part of the Mississippi River in Carleton Place.

Light water activity -- If you are interested in canoeing or simply wading in the waters of the Mississippi River, we recommend visiting the Riverside Park Beach. It's called "beach" but it is not Hawaii or Bali. Just a small beach where you can wade in or swim. And right beside it is the Canoe Club, as well as the Boat Launch area for those who have boats.

A combination of the above -- by bicycle. Cycling will enable you to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the river and the many parks in Carleton Place, as well as to stop by at any of the historic buildings, if any interests you. You can also park your bike on Bridge St (our Main street) and have lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants there.

You may rent bikes from us -- $5 per day (or part thereof) per bike and helmet.

History -- visit the the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, the Roy Brown Museum, or take the Self-Guided Walking Tour.

Animals -- visit the Parrot Partners Canada, the neighborhood dog parks.

Food -- many restaurants offering cafes (coffee, pastry, sandwiches), Chinese, Indian, Thai, Western cuisines, and a Steak house.

Getting around

Our home is a 45-minute drive from downtown Ottawa, a 45-min drive from Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport (YOW), a 25-min drive from Smiths Falls Union (train) station, and a few minutes’ drive from the Carleton Place Arena (for those who wish to take bus transport).
