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 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.
In addition to the marina and restaurant, Riverest offers the possibility of hosting events and activities on site. It’s a place that caters to the needs of boaters, cyclists, motorcyclists, transients, weekenders and vacationers. Riverest aspires to offer an experience in a historic rural setting, with a variety of activities, such as eating out and enjoying the river, as well as a place to relax and enjoy the scenery and sunsets. For the future, Riverest offers suites and cottages for rent, as well as water sports equipment.
