Skootamatta House B&B is halfway between Toronto and Ottawa, a perfect place to pause and refresh. Four acres of private "manicured wilderness" with 400' of waterfront, the peaceful Skootamatta River. The loudest sounds you'll hear at night are tree frogs in the spring, bullfrogs in the summer, owls year 'round.
Summer: If you like to swim, bring your suit. Beach towels are provided. The dock provides easy entry into the river which has a mild current and is like one long lap-pool. You also have use of the kayaks and canoe. The river is easy to paddle and beautiful High Falls is only 10 minutes away by boat. It's a 2 storey waterfall with a trail to hike from top to bottom. Sitting under the waterfall is a real treat!
Winter: The house is cozy (small) and comfortable. Heated with a woodstove, down duvets on the beds and endless pots of tea or rich hot chocolate, staying inside is just fine. For the adventurous, there are snowshoes and the frozen river provides an easy hike to the falls which are stunning with natural ice sculptures. Bring your x-country skis!
Three-course dinners are available with advance notice. Please contact to arrange.
