A few minutes away from downtown Ottawa (Canada) and is one of the east end’s best-kept secrets, Hammond Hill will soon become the place to be this summer for people who enjoy the outdoors.

According to its Facebook page, Hammond Hill is the first eco-experience and wilderness retreat in Canada.

Initially featuring small cabins, yurts, and campsites nestled in 62 acres of mature woodlands, Hammond Hill will be an environmentally sustainable retreat for families.

“What we’re thinking of is a really amazing staycation, eco-resort, where you’re 20 minutes outside of Ottawa,” says Hammond Hill founding owner Aaron Markel.

“We have a Pioneer Village where you’ll be able to stay in a house that makes you feel like you lived 250 years ago.”

There’s a man-made lake with several walking trails, a beer garden, and even two outdoor wedding venues. It’s also right next to Hammond Golf Course.

“Because we are an eco-resort, we don’t want to waste,” says Markel. “If we do cut down a tree, we have a sawmill in the facility. We turn it into wood. We mulch our own paths. We make our own firewood. We really want to live the message of being an eco-park.”

Twelve high-tech solar-powered tents called Jupe’s would be set up next to the lake. They will be available for rent by mid-June. Prices start at around CA$130 per night, based on the season.

“So Jupe makes high design, off-grid dwellings that bring the deepest parts of nature, together with the deepest parts of design and tech,” says Jeff Wilson, Jupe CEO and Chief Designer. 

“How better to do it than with deep woods, a golf course, and a brewery. Mixed together with the coolest space-aged tents you’ve ever seen.”

If you think a Jupe isn’t for you, there are micro-homes within the woods that can accommodate a family of four. It has a bed, small kitchen, shower, and toilet.

“We wanted to provide a different experience for people that play golf and just wanted to camp and have good food. So we are combining all of this together and offering a one-stop-shop experience for outdoor fun,” says Hammond Golf Club owner Leonard Gendron.

Hammond Hill and Hammond Golf are working together to offer the ultimate all-inclusive vacation located right in Ottawa’s backyard.

“The experience is coming and staying inside of nature, not trying to force construction to fit nature,” says Markel. “We are actually trying to bring people in and enjoy their experience here.”
