Old Chelsea Real Estate Listings and Information
Old Chelsea, QC, a 10 minute drive from downtown Ottawa/Gatineau brings you to the village of Old Chelsea. People come to the area drawn to the beautiful scenary and the ‘small-town’ Canada feeling. Also, as the southern gateway to Gatineau Park, skiing, golf, sailing, cycling, boating, hiking are literally at your backdoor. Dunn-D’s (dunnds.com), a world-class mini-golf facility as well as Le Nordik (www.lenordik.com)a Scandinavian spa, have recently opened. Century 21 Macintyre will be hosting its Second Annual Mini-Putt Tournament for Easter Seals at Dunn-D's in early June, 2011.
There are charming shops and galleries along Scott and Old Chelsea Roads as well as a farmer’s market with local produce. Several awarding-winning restaurants such as Les Fougeres (www.fougeres.ca) or L’Orée du bois (www.oreeduboisrestaurant.com) can be found nearby as well as the historic Mackenzie King Estate, the country home of Canada’s longest-serving, and perhaps most eccentric, prime minister. In summer, go for a swim at Meech Lake or, in winter, go skiing at Camp Fortune (www.CampFortune.com).
Like its sister village of Chelsea, this is a vibrant and growing community much sought-after by families, young and old.
