A getaway

Peaches & Cream is located in the heart of the countryside while still being close to the National Capital Region. A jaunt around town is thus easy to plan, whether it’s to visit the museums or enjoy the festivals, restaurants or any other of Ottawa’s and Gatineau’s many attractions. On your way to Ottawa, you will drive through the picturesque town of Wakefield, home to good restaurants and several tourist attractions.

THE AREA

Peaches & Cream sits on the banks of the Gatineau River, a waterway that was navigated for centuries by indigenous communities, the coureur de bois (wood runners) and the first European explorers. Unlike other areas, the Gatineau River has been largely untouched and is a prime spot for canoe, kayak and fishing enthusiasts.

The estate’s neighbours are sure to make your experience even more unique:
