My husband and I got engaged 6 months out from our eventual wedding day! This meant we were very limited in terms of finding a venue. When we toured Strathmere (The Lodge is what we decided on) we knew from that moment that was where we wanted to get married! The staff went above and beyond to help make our...

It may have been -20 outside on Mar 11, 2017 but I was feeling warm and relaxed doing the Hot Yoga class. This was followed by a soak in hot tub having the most relaxed conversation with my good friend. Next I had to decide on only one meal for lunch, it was delicious as always and I ended my...

Leading up to the big day, we were in contact with our wedding coordinator who took care of all of the details. The day of the wedding everything ran so smoothly with no hickups! The serving staff was so...

We really enjoyed our winter wedding at Strathmere. The staff were exceptionally helpful and the service was friendly and efficient. We booked the entire inn so that our guests could stay over in case of bad weather (or too much alcohol!). This worked fantastic as people could take a break from the festivities to go to their rooms, then return...

What a great spa experience. Staff was awesome. Services offered were great. Facility is so tidy other than wet floor outside of change room. Food was awesome Looks like gluten free and vegan are accommodated Only concern was dealing with food allergies. It almost seemed like an after thought but was accommodated

Spent a day at the Wellness Retreat with the 'Stretch, Soak, and Savor' package. Started off by having lunch at the café. I had the fig and goat cheese flatbread which was fresh and used local ingredients. I loved it! Lots of flavor. I also had the flourless chocolate and pear torte which was good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strathmere is Ottawa's unique 200-acre country retreat and corporate getaway site. Since 1979, we have created an exceptional environment and hospitality services for many occasions, and host thousands each year for Ottawa weddings, meetings and social events. More recently, we have added a 6,000 square foot spa and wellness retreat to the property. The Retreat at Strathmere provides full Aesthetics spa treatments, daily yoga classes, and features a cafe serving organic, field to plate food, along with wine and beer. The grounds have also been expanded to include outdoor baths, fire pits, resting areas and walking trails. Located in the heart of our extensive acreage, our physical facilities include historic Strathmere Inn, 2 additional major event sites, three charming residences with 34 bedrooms, and bright and airy meeting rooms overlooking the meadows and gardens. We support these facilities with fresh, local and seasonal menus, accommodation, event planning and administrative services. We invite you to experience the new Strathmere! Celebrate. Renew. Grow. ... more   less
