Idyllic Wakefield accommodation for romantic getaways near Ottawa

This lovely Quebec glamping retreat is great for a vacation on the Gatineau River. The Wakefield accommodation is a four-season houseboat with a cabin of 8’x10’. There's a double mattress - semi-firm, very minimalistic furniture, a few shelves, and a small folding table. There is a roof over the porch as well as the outhouse.

The boat is equipped with a propane furnace for heat for use between mid of September and early June and guests should note that there is no electricity, kitchen, running water, cooking supplies, or refrigerator. This really is a minimalist retreat inspired by the Zen movie " Spring, summer, fall, winter, spring". The boat is made to feel like a floating zen house, with a Japanese style curved red roof. The ceiling inside is a masterpiece, with exposed two-inch thick, curvy cedar rafters.

The walls are full of character made from blue pine siding, Douglas fir trim, and finished with organic citrus oil. All the windows have custom curtains and the boat is completely off-grid (hence no electricity or running water). There will be a USB bar and a charger pack with light during guest's stay in Quebec.

Outside there are is a small patio table or camping chairs. The Quebec glamping getaway is a perfect space for yoga and meditation, unwinding with a book, getting cozy, and sleeping! During the day; the bed can be strapped to the wall to allow for full use of the floor space, which is beautiful cherry hardwood.

The bathroom is an outdoor outhouse with a covered roof on the side deck of the boat (it's chilly). The toilet is a dry sawdust composting toilet that is very easy to use, with no odor and mess-free.
