Having officially been dubbed as Canadas prettiest village and with more designated heritage buildings than any other Ontario community of like size, Merrickville is a unique and vibrant Victorian village. Idyllically situated along the historic Rideau Canal, less than an hour's drive from both Ottawa, the nation's capital, and the U.S.-Canada border, Merrickville loves to celebrate its history and culture and heartily invites everyone to join in! To enjoy its heritage, natural attractions, delightful restaurants and shops, its small town hospitality, and its all-round, year-round enchantment.
Rich vintage architecture. Leafy canopied streets flowing to the Rideau's edge. Visitors strolling down those shaded streets at a leisurely centuries-past pace. A poetic Towne Crier, dressed in regalia of yore, issuing his spirited warm welcome. An osprey, a great blue heron gliding over the Merrickville locks, part of the oldest continuously operating Canal in North America, a designated National Heritage Site and a Canadian Heritage River . . . these are just some of the treasures which singularly and as part of a special blend, help preserve bygone days and keep alive the lore and the lure that is Merrickville.
You can spend the day shopping for intricate lace, antique china, antiquarian books or quilts. But your purchases might also include more contemporary items such as locally blended mustards like tangy Lime Chipotle, (a winner at the Worldwide Mustard Competition in Napa, California) accessories emblazoned with portraits of Marilyn Monroe, or locally crafted leather knapsacks and water bottle holders. Traditional British pub food and libation, afternoon tea, and fine wining and dining are on the menu. But so are brunch buffets, patio dining, Thai, Cajun and Caribbean cuisine or a hot dog and fries to go from one of several roadside chip stands. If yours is an overnight or weekend getaway, you have a legion of lodging establishments from which to choose.
The annual Merrickville Agricultural Fair and Steam Show, which has now spanned three centuries, a summer farmer's market honouring the old rural tradition, antique and craft shows, community theatre productions, as well as contemporary add-ons such as artists' studio tours and art festivals, and craft shows, the annual community-wide garage sale, a postcard exhibition, a classic car show, Canalfest, a fun-filled weekend of activity.

Reserve your dream lot in Phase 3 today, this is how it works. We are planning Phase 3 to be ready by November 2017. We will accept agreements to purchase and salel with a $5,000 deposit in Trust with our corporate lawyer (Paul Jansen in Kemptville), with a closing to occur at a distant future date (say 3 years), or before should the buyer want to close early. The agreement would include a clause that would make the agreement null and void if the roads and services are not installed by the closing date.
