About Riverest

As one of the oldest properties in Ontario and one of the last regency-style-architecture building of its kind, Riverest is a hidden gem that is finally becoming open to the public. “Riverest” is the original name of the bicentennial stone house, built by The Marston’s in 1833, on top of the hill at the end of Wharf street, in the heart of downtown L’Orignal. This breathtaking 2.3-acres property overlooks the L’Orignal marina, the Ottawa river, La Rouge beach and the Laurentian Mountains.

The Riverest’s vision is composed of a marina, water sport rentals, a restaurant, cottages and room rentals, plus the possibility of hosting events among other venues and activities. It will become a place where locals and tourists can eat, play and stay. Riverest will cater to boaters, cyclists, motorcyclists, drive-through visitors, weekenders and vacationers. It intends to offer an experience in a historical rural setting — with a range of activities such as dining out and enjoying the river — as well as a place to simply relax and enjoy amazing views and beautiful sunsets.

About the Owners
