“I found this place to be very clean, comfortable, and perfectly sized for one to two people. The bathroom and shower was excellent. You could tell that Nanda made sure that the house is very clean. I honestly think this is a bargain. I am looking forward to staying here again one day.”

Location

The village of Winchester is a hidden gem located between the cities of Ottawa and Cornwall. Travel a half an hour to visit area attractions, such as Upper Canada Village, Parliament Hill, Canadian War Museum, Diefenbunker, the Byward Market, Calypso Water Park and many more.

Centrally located, the Lofty Nest is perfectly situated to sample some of Winchester’s favourite eateries, including the Pull-apart Apple Cinnamon Bread by Simply Baked, and the Hotel California Pizza by Iron Forge. Or try prepared meals from Winchester Catering featuring our personal fav, the Big BBQ Family Dinner.

Winchester is also home to a 24-hour grocery store, thrift store, book shop, spa, salons, clothing boutique and a number of eclectic gift shops. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet. The loft is also within walking distance to a movie theatre, gym, skating arena, outdoor pool, library, hospital, and the local shopping district.

If travelling from afar, the loft is only 30 minutes to the Ottawa International Airport or Via Rail Train Station, and only 45 minutes from the Ogdensburg International Airport.
