The Lofty Nest
A modern century home in the intimate village of Winchester, ON
Welcome to The Lofty Nest! Located 30 minutes south of Ottawa (Canada’s Capital City) in the intimate village of Winchester. This Century home was gutted and lovingly restored, using reclaimed materials, sweat and love. Visiting for work, play or just the experience of living in a tiny house, the Lofty Nest will charm you with its ‘Instaworthy’ decor and hotel standards. Perfect for 1 or 2 guests, but can accommodate up to 4. Ideal for visitors, contractors or business professionals.

Location & Nearby Attractions
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 within walking distance to local cafes, where you can drink enormous cups of freshly brewed and locally roasted coffee. It’s also perfectly situated to sample some of Winchester’s favourite eateries. Some of our favourites include the Pull-apart Apple Cinnamon Bread by Simply Baked, the Hotel California Pizza by Iron Forge, and most definitely the Spinach & Feta Crepe by Cup of Jo’s.
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.
