A lot of times, living in a small town means there aren’t any major hotel chains nearby. In the Ottawa Valley, we are fortunate to have a wide array of small boutique hotels, bed & breakfasts and Airbnb options. Airbnb’s are a growing trend and in Almonte and Carleton Place there are a number of great options available, depending on what it is you are looking for.
The Almonte Suites: Located steps from downtown Almonte, the Almonte Suites offers a number of different apartments. There are 2 different self-contained suites, each with their own kitchen. Also available is the entire house to rent for larger groups. Walk to downtown shops and restaurants in less than 5 minutes.
The Almonte Suites II: Just up the road from the Almonte Suites, is a beautiful 2-unit home with a full, 3-bedroom suite as well as a cozy bachelor apartment. Both are tastefully decorated and renovated. Each unit has a private entrance and own laundry facilities.
Pinehurst Manor (Almonte): For larger groups, this stunning historic home has been dubbed the “Downton Abbey” of the Ottawa Valley by previous guests. This beautiful home is ideal for entertaining and events. The exterior offers stunning yards with flower gardens as well as a large stone patio with fire pit and BBQ which overlook the waterfalls and river. There is a 95-yard golf hole and space to basketball or badminton. This great Airbnb can accommodate 20+ people. We have personally stayed at this venue and LOVE it!
Sunny Napoleon St. (Carleton Place): A hidden gem close to downtown Carleton Place! This Airbnb has been given rave reviews from previous guests. The entire, beautifully renovated, log house is for rent and can accommodate up to 5 guests. At just $100/night, it’s a bargain price for a beautiful home rental!
Chateau Jan (Carleton Place): Just outside of Carleton Place on a beautiful 2.6-acre lot, this Airbnb offers a wonderful apartment and a taste of country living! You’ll have private access to the entire walk-out basement of this stunning home which can accommodate up to 9 guests. Enjoy roasting marshmallows by the fire, sitting poolside and enjoy fresh eggs from the host’s chickens!
Whether you’re visiting family, attending an event or getting away for a weekend, any of these Airbnb options will be sure to please! Have you visited a great, local Airbnb? I’d love to hear your experience. Share with me on Facebook or Instagram.
