Welcome to our community page. Here you will find some short introductory videos for various communities that we serve in rural Ottawa. This is not a complete list and can best be described as a work in progress.
If there is a town that you would like to see added, let us know and we will do our best to add it for you. Just send us an email HERE or call or text us at 613-897-6839.
Most of these towns are within commuting distance of Ottawa (some commuting times are shown under the "Relocation" tab) and many others are vibrant communities that offer you a great country lifestyle with the added bonus of allowing you to own much more home than you could afford in the city. Just think, for the cost of a townhome or condo in Ottawa you could own your own single family home on a large lot in the country!
Come on out to the country, meet the people, enjoy the activities and friendly atmosphere. Check out our Facebook page: Ottawa Country Homes and Lifestylesfor some of the local events as well as useful tips.
