Welcome to Charing House Gardens Bed & Breakfast

Charing House has two second floor rooms ideal for nightly, weekly, or monthly accommodation in a large executive home. Located in a quiet suburb of west Ottawa, it is a fifteen minute drive to downtown. Access is easy from Highways 416 and 417. Parking is available at no charge.

The location is great for sports in all seasons as it faces Charing Park where soccer, basketball, baseball, play structures, and a skating rink are located. The Nepean Sportsplex and the Ottawa Superdome at Ben Franklin Park are minutes away. Bell Arena, Merivale Arena, and the Walter Baker Sports Centre are all about a ten minute drive. The back yard has direct access to the National Capital Commission bike path system which extends for many miles through park settings throughout the city, for both biking and walking, as well as cross country skiing. Live entertainment at Centrepointe Theatre, a branch of The Ottawa Public Library, and an outdoor artificial skating area are all nearby.

The house is air conditioned, heated by gas, and is designed for superior ventilation. The home has never accommodated smokers, nor in-room pets. An exceptionally friendly and quiet golden retriever is on site. Beautiful back yard deck and seating, and extensive gardens in season are yours to enjoy. The five foot interactive kaleidoscope is a favourite with guests, and often neighbours stop by as well to view this fun gizmo. Parking available at no additional charge, as well as secure storage for bikes and sports equipment.

The space also functions well as a retreat or getaway venue for small groups. Generous access to a piano is possible.
