Local Attractions: Merrickville

About 20 minutes down County Rd 43 from Settlers’ Grant will bring you straight into the heart of one of the most charming towns in Ontario called Merrickville. If you haven’t heard of it before, I can help give you an idea of why its considered to one of the best tourist attractions in the area.

Aside from the beautifully scenic drive up, Merrickville gives off an old town feel, it is littered with buildings from the early 19th and 20th century that have been converted into shops, stores, pubs, restaurants, artisan galleries, hotels and homes. I find that I only intend to spend a small determined of time browsing and shopping but I always end up making it into a day trip. There is just so much to look at and so many friendly people to talk to that you can’t help but stay and hang around.

You will also find that there are numerous events, fairs, and special occasions that happen throughout the year. Most of them center on art, creativity, theater, music, history and township celebrations. This is really great because you can always find something to do whether its with your family, with your friends or on your own. is most active in the summer since it is along the Rideau River and is part of the canal system. This brings out boaters, boat enthusiasts, tourists, observers and the like. The canal is right off the main road which is right beside a nice park where people can get together and have a barbeque or a picnic.

Overall I think it is one of the best places to visit to meet new people, to experience an artisan culture and to enjoy the day!

25 Heritage Blvd!

model house FebSettlers’ Grant’s office has officially moved to a new address! The new model home already feels like a comfortable living space as well as a functional working environment. I’ve been looking forward to this for months now and I couldn’t be happier with how things have worked out. All of the furniture and appliances have been set up and are ready to use as well as all of the office equipment. At this point all that’s really missing is the final touches like eye catching art work and greenery. So glad to have been part of the whole process and can’t wait to really settle into this position!

I think my favorite part about working here is that you can’t look out a window without taking a second to appreciate all the nature that surrounds the house. I’m also really excited to see how Heritage Blvd transforms into a neighbourhood with the houses that are already in line to be built! Some very interesting concepts in home design both interior and exterior that capture the whole idea of building a custom home from the ground up.
