Ensure that visiting Tom B&B rimes with comfort, relaxation, beatitude, beauty, pleasure and happiness. Come live a grand hotel experience at a smaller scale and lesser cost, and allow yourself to be pampered by your host Barbara!
At Tom B&B, you're not confined to your room since you have access to outdoor and indoor spaces that are designed for lounging or playing. On the main level, you are invited to relax, read or listen to music by the fireplace, without being disturbed. The exterior balcony, accessible from the living room, displays chairs in which you can contemplate a breathtaking view on the river. At terrace level (walkout basement), a lounge is the ideal place for guests who would like to sit comfortably while having a nice conversation. This lounge also has a bar where snacks are served every afternoon during high season (June to October). A sink, microwave oven and dishes are made available to guests who would like to reheat take-out food or fix a very simple meal. The adjacent solarium is a great spot to eat or play cards or games, and from there, the outside terrace opens up to a patio table for fun picnics, and an outdoor fireplace will lighten your nights with its flammes, both in summer and winter. The 2-acres garden is wide and well maintained. There's enough green space to lie down for a sun bath or play games such as frisbee, ball, badminton, etc. Finally, access to the river is possible, but the shore is not yet developed.
Tom B&B is located in Chelsea Quebec, 5.6 km (6 minutes) north of Old-Chelsea village, in a delightful setting right on the edge of Gatineau River on one side, and Gatineau Park on the other. As part of the Outaouais Tourist Region, Chelsea is only fifteen minutes away northbound from Ottawa and Gatineau by Highway 5, a very fluid highway that connects to Highway 50 or leads to downtown Ottawa via Macdonald-Cartier bridge. Chelsea is recognized as a bucolic little paradise, especially by outdoor enthusiasts. Gatineau Park spreads on most of its territory and contains many lakes and streams. Old Chelsea Village offers good addresses such as Nordik Spa, ice cream parlor La Cigale, Chelsea Pub, Les Saisons and Biscotti cafés, as well as the Visitor Centre for Gatineau Park. For a more refined table, L'Orée du bois and Les fougères are two well-known fine dinning restaurants. Fifteen km (14 minutes) north of Tom B&B, you'll find Wakefield, another very bucolic village with country charm.
All year long, outdoor enthusiasts will be able to practice their favorite sport close by and relax in a beautiful, calm and warm place. Road 105 has been widen to insert a cycle path on each side. Cyclists can leave Tom B&B on their bicycles and reach the many paths found in the park and region, towards Gatineau/Ottawa or Wakefield. Hikers can explore the Gatineau River shoreline by walking along the old railway trail that will soon be transformed into a cycle path, or drive to the many Gatineau Park trails who are just a few minutes away form the B&B. Finally, kayakers and canoeists will be served because they will be able to launch their craft right in front of our premisses. During wintertime, cross country skiers can put on their skis and slide from the B&B along the riverbank trail.
