Becoming a member of Whitewater Village was the best choice we have made for our family. 

Owning a conventional cottage did not fit with our lifestyle. One of our sons has environmental allergies. The unpredictable nature of opening a cottage, even after a week was a risk we simply could never take. Learning that the cottages at Whitewater Village are cleaned and maintained regularly was what first caused us pause; curious to learn more. We […]

The sights and sounds of nature are wonderful…

Our family enjoys all of the seasons at WWV. We had a riot this winter tobogganing down the road to the beach. But, summer is the highlight for our family at WWV. We really enjoy the variety of activities offered on the river. We have three daughters (ages 9, 7, 7) and they have learned to kayak and […]

KickAss Weekend Away At Whitewater Village

January 9, 2015 – Written by KickAss Living In November, I was thrilled to be invited to a Blogger weekend at Whitewater Village. The Village is located about an hour outside of Ottawa. The perfect distance for an old fashioned road trip. Throw in a luxury cottage, awesome bloggers and I am ready to go! […]

The Ultimate Girls’ Retreat at Whitewater Village

December 14, 2014 – Written by TurnipSeedTravel When four girls converged on Whitewater Village, we had recipes for cookies – and fun! What do you think happens when four women, who haven’t let their hair down in a long time, get together for a weekend retreat with no men allowed? There’s a wee bit of […]

Travel to a luxurious weekend at Whitewater Village with #WhiteWaterWomen

January 6, 2015 – Written by Canadian Blog House What happens at Whitewater Village, stays at Whitewater Village. Well, not really. Why? Because Whitewater Village, located on the shore of the great Ottawa River, one hour northwest of the city of Ottawa, is a piece of Ontario cottage country paradise that everyone should get to […]

Fractional ownership has been the way to go for our family

We are packing up to leave from our latest week at Whitewater Village and everyone is relaxed and not very excited about leaving – even in November! As usual, we found our cottage clean and warm when we arrived and we have spent the week hiking, playing board games, cooking and relaxing by the fire. […]

Our cottage for the weekend was everything one could hope for in a peaceful retreat

Where do I start when talking about Whitewater Village? I vividly remember a wintery day almost five years ago, when our family went to WWV for a discovery weekend. My wife and I arrived late afternoon, ahead of our adult kids, to find a fire burning in the fireplace, soft lighting, total silence and the […]

From day one, our stays have been fantastic!

Our family was one of the first purchasers of WWV. Our “home” is now Blueberry Private, but we have enjoyed many stays in several other cottages. From day one, our stays have been fantastic! It would be difficult to choose a favourite season, as our family has individual preferences. We love the fall, with the crisp air, […]

Exciting Possibilities – October 24, 2014

What do we like most about WWV? We’d have to say that it’s the location on the Ottawa River, surrounded by the beautiful, varied and unspoiled landscapes of the Ottawa Valley. The opportunities for year-round outdoor activities especially are countless. In fact, we’ve been surprised in the six years of our cottage ownership, that we constantly find new places to discover, alone or with […]

Fall at WWV – October 10, 2014

With the less-than-ideal weather this Fall, our week at WWV at the end of September coincided with a “heat wave” with almost dead calm water on the lake for several days. The lake water was still surprizingly warm, so some Owners including ourselves enjoyed swimming (with and without a sauna), possibly for the last time. […]
