Manotick

Manotick is one of the Ottawa areas most picturesque communities. With a great deal of history, plenty of amenities and an extraordinary location, it's a very easy community to live in. Located south of Ottawa on the Rideau River, it was included in the 2001 amalgamation, and is now considered a part of the City of Ottawa.

Settled in the early 1800's, the development was spurred in the 1830's by the construction of the Long Island Locks on the Rideau Canal which opened up more opportunity for logging, milling and trades. It was at this time that the town was officially named. 'Manotick' comes from the Ojibwa words meaning 'island in the river', for its unique geography. Once the timber industry slowed, so did the rest of the community, and it remained stagnant for some time, until it rebounded as a bedroom community for Ottawa. There are plenty of amenities in Manotick, with everything form charming Bed and Breakfasts to quaint specialty boutiques, award winning florists, art galleries, high quality clothing and accessories, and a wealth of cafes, pubs and restaurants. There are two schools in Manotick; St. Leonards and Manotick Public school. As well, the outdoor enthusiast will find a wide variety of activities to enjoy in and around Manotick. Fishing, boating, golf courses and waterfront parks provide all kinds of space and inspiration for families and individuals looking to enjoy the best of rural hospitality.

A great place to live with beautiful, great unique custom built homes.
