If you want to be steps from the Rideau Canal and the parliament buildings, close to shopping and restaurants, this is not the place for you. If you want to experience county-style ambiance in a wooded setting and peaceful surroundings, this is the perfect place. My husband and I arrived at Ottawa a day early, just before Christmas. Richard and Susan cheerfully made plans to accommodate us. We had chosen the spacious suite, with all-round views of the woods. The bathroom was a dream, with a large tub and shower. During our three-day stay, we enjoyed hearty country breakfasts and drove the scenic route into Ottawa. On our last evening, we were snowed in. “No problem,” our hosts said and we opted for their dinner menu - Le Festin du Maple Ridge, which consisted of a French-Canadian pea soup and tourtière accompanied by fresh asparagus, baby peas and baked sweet potato. Upon departure, Richard presented us with pictures of our stay, and Susan pressed a jar of preserves into our hands. We have travelled across Canada, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, but this is a place we know we will return to. Andi and Andy Anderson, Mistissini, Quebec

We were fortunate to spend three lovely nights at this beautiful B and B on the outskirts of Ottawa in a wooded area of Orleans from October 14 to the 16th as we spent a mini-vacation in that fine city. The hosts, Susan and Richard are a warm and friendly couple who ensured that our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Green Room which looked out on two sides into the spacious backyard and many trees. The room was bright, comfortable and peaceful had a large ensuite bathroom stocked with many extras. Breakfast each morning was a delight with fruit, muffins and a hot dish which kept us going until late lunch. One very unique surprise was being presented with a memento of our stay with photos of our room, each other, the hosts and the B and B. A much appreciated touch. We highly recommend this delightful B and B.

Richard and Sue were the kindest and most caring people we met while staying in Canada. We stayed in the blue room, which was very comfy and clean. Staying at the Maple Ridge felt like staying with family. And Sue prepared a breakfast that knocked us off our feet! (especially because one of us is vegan) Richard's made us laugh plenty of times with his great sense of humor. All in all we had the best time staying there for four days.
