Calabogie’s Somewhere Inn in the heart of the Ottawa Valley just might be the perfect destination for all things winter.
Like a boutique hotel, this thoughtfully designed roadside motel sits atop a small hill surrounded by forest, just minutes from the area’s Calabogie Peaks ski area.
The property is meant to reconnect with the outdoors each season.
With swinging hammocks in the winter, lawn games and a year-round fire pit warming up to yoga for summer visitors, Somewhere Inn’s love of the outdoors is evident, with views of rolling mountains and lakes from every corner. You can enjoy the view.
Rooms at Somewhere Inn are inspired by cabins decorated by Canadian artists and designers. There are no TVs in the rooms and they pride themselves on being ‘intentionally analog’, but if you want to extend your trip and work from ‘home’ there is WiFi and a desk.
It’s dog friendly, so you’re more than welcome to bring your furry, four-legged pup on your adventures.
Calling the inn “a base camp for adventure and exploration,” it offers everything from winter hiking, snowmobiling, skating on Calabogie Lake, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing nearby, to wine tastings and massages for those who prefer a slower pace. , there is everything.
After a day of adventure in any form, Somewhere Inn invites you to a cozy retreat in our all-day indoor lounge with comfy chairs and loungers, board games and movie nights.
There is also a wine bar in the lobby with a selection of low intervention, biodynamic and organic wines. To wrap up the evening, retire to your room for a warm soak in the deep soaking tub (available in some rooms) or lounge by the in-room fireplace.
Somewhere Inn works with local restaurants, breweries, tour operators, and small businesses to provide guests with guides to promote local tourism. Enjoy pastries and coffee at nearby Bonne Cher Bakery, or get a deep his tissue massage in the heated dome at Dome Retreat.
