Experience Serenity and Peacefulness in the Heart of the Rideau Lakes
WELCOME TO DAFFODIL ACRES

This unique space is filled with historic charm and provides an elegant and peaceful atmosphere to enjoy a well-deserved break from the city, to rekindle love’s flame with a romantic getaway, to host your own event, to relax your mind and body with one of our restorative services, and to experience all the attractions the beautiful Rideau Lakes region has to offer!

"This is the sort of place that you only want to tell your closest friends about, to keep it all to yourself. It's the perfect cottage alternative if you want more space and don't care as much about being right on the water. It's huge, beautiful, and clean, with amazing spaces both outdoor and in. We were a party of 10 with 4 kids, and there was more than enough room for all, with lots of private spaces where you could get away from the crowd."
"Great host. Outstanding accommodation and breakfast. Super comfy bed. 5 stars."
"We absolutely loved being at Daffodil Acres! Your hospitality and warmth Charles, was so welcoming. We think your "home" is gorgeous and we would definitely come back again. Everything was just perfect! Thank you so much for a lovely stay!"
We rented the full manor and could not have been happier with the property and the hosts. They were more than accommodating, even helping to arrange docking for our seadoos. The neighbourhood is wonderful and the house beautifully furnished with all the necessary amenities. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation!
“Isabelle and Charles are incredible hosts. The history and architecture of their home is amazing. This quaint home has so much unique and original woodwork with modern comforts. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms so inviting.”
“Thanks for warm and thoughtful reception & the delicate breakfast. Tastefully decorated, very clean, fully equipped, super quiet with only birds singing in the morning, acres of grass and forest, steps to the lake, the great place to touch the nature. While you can also enjoy the remains of history. Love to stay again and recommend to friends.”
