The River Den is a 4 season houseboat, docked outside the village of Wakefield, Qc on the Gatineau River. This dream boat is a rustic artisanal floating tiny house, without hot water, shower or electricity. There's a cozy airtight woodstove for year round stays, cooking facilities and a dry composting toilet on board.

O espaço
The River Den is a 4 season (fully insulated) houseboat. The Den is 33 feet long with 23 feet of inside cabin space. The Den has a cozy 'Jotul' wood stove and a second story sleeping loft with a very comfortable queen size bed. The loft has a steel grill floor feature, great for fresh air and heat circulation and for letting the sunlight into the main cabin from above! There is a full carpeted roof top deck, perfect for stargazing, yoga or suntanning and a front deck with a swimming ladder. The boat has 3 eight foot patio doors and 2 circular windows, a custom steering wheel and many more handmade rustic features!

There is no 120v electricity on the boat (which means no regular plug in electricity). There is a USB charging port connected to our solar system which you can use to charge phones.

On bord is a Seperett dry compost toilet.

There are no locks on the boat from the outside. Only from the inside (poles to lock the patio doors in place). It's a very quiet and safe place.

THE BOAT WILL BE DOCKED AND GUESTS CANNOT DRIVE IT.

The boat is on the Gatineau River; great swimming and fishing. Also there is an expedition shop (Expeditions Wakefield) 4 kms down the road which rents kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, bikes, snowshoes, skis and more.

Please note there are steep steps leading down to the boat. Wear appropriate footwear! High heels not recommended;)

We supply:
-firewood, kindling, newspaper for starting fire
-drinking water from the Wakefield spring
-coffee and tea (no cream :)
-oil, salt, pepper, sugar and coffee whitener
- fuel for cooking stove and BBQ
-a working fridge in the warmer season. A cooler in the winter months.

4 SEASON STAYS:
The houseboat is fully insulated and has double pane windows all around. Making for a very cozy time all year long. It's very comfortable in the winter months. Bring some slippers or big socks as the floor can be chilly in the mornings if the fire has gone out overnight.

The steps down to the boat can be slippery if there is rain or snow so please arrive in appropriate footwear.

In the winter months there is no running water, but the drain in the sink still works ( we disconnect the plumbing and run the kitchen drain into a pail, which we empty in the forest) therefore guests can still do dishes, etc. We ask that guests warm a pot of water on the woodstove to have hot water for doing dishes to make sure they are shiny for the next guests!

Acesso do hóspede
Guests have full access of the entire boat.
The nature trail we use to access the River Den is NOT for high heels : ) We recommend smart footwear as the trail down is narrow and steep.

Outras observações
The boat is no longer moored in the village of Wakefield across from the Kafe 1870. We have since moved the River Den downstream at a permanent mooring location which is very private and much more quiet.

Please note the following:
No electricity
No running water in the winter
No fridge in the winter (we do provide a cooler with ice packs )
There is a camping 2-burner stove and BBQ for cooking, as well as pots and pans and a bodum for coffee.

Perfect off grid paradise in any season.

Wakefield, Quebec, Canadá

A few kms downstream from the Heart of Wakefield....charming, colorful in buildings and local characters! Cafes, boutiques, rail road tracks, spas, vintage shops, bakeries, great food, bars, swimming, water sports and fishing in the Gatineau river. Amazing trails for cross x skiing , skating, hiking, biking trails and 4 ski hills within 15 min drive. Ice fish right from the boat in the winter! The River Den is 25 min. from the nation's Capital with multitudes of museums, galleries and historic landmarks to visit if you feel the need to visit the city as well.

Many of our guests enjoy just getting off the grid for a couple of days, enjoying the sublime peacefulness and beauty of the Gatineau River.

My name is Bonnie and I am the captain of the River Den, the River Zen and The Nellie. Very excited about hosting guests on my boats. I'm the daughter of a québécois log driver and I grew up on the river in Low Qc, driving boats and living on islands. I am passionate about artistic building and designing dens! My full time job is taking care of my boats and cleaning them for your stays! Im also usually working on a construction project of my own, including an island meditation retreat and my next houseboat. I have been an entrepreneur since the age of 19 and plan on continuing to explore my creativity through inspiring and creative business endeavours. I enjoy foraging wild goodies, playing huckleberry Finn, falconry with our 2 birds of prey Shagyal (Harris Hawk) and Nellie (eagle owl ).
