The Babbling Gourmet
Get ready to be spoiled!
We are currently undergoing some exciting changes here at the farm! In an effort to accommodate more hungry diners, we are renovating a 12-16 seat bistro and commercial kitchen at the farm. We look forward to hosting larger groups, sledders and local fine dining enthusiasts in the coming months!
Our specialty is Farm, Fresh & Fancy™.
The Babbling Gourmet is all-inclusive farmhouse 1 hour west of Ottawa specializing in luxury dinner parties, sleepovers & events in addition to off-site catering and private chef services.
Experience a rustically elegant, centuries-old farmhouse on 350 acres of pristine farmland with a private lake. Beautiful décor, exemplary hospitality and decadent multi-course breakfasts await! The Babbling Gourmet experience is perfect for complete relaxation and pampering. Chef Andi welcomes groups and guests of all nationalities and will turn an overnight into an incredibly delicious and relaxing event. Using only locally sourced ingredients, your stay and meals will be Farm, Fresh & Fancy™!
The Babbling Gourmet farmhouse is located in the beautiful Ottawa Valley surrounded by the Ottawa River, Muskrat Lake and the Bonnechere River. Enjoy fishing in the Madawaska or sunbathing at Burnstown beach. Visit local hot spots like the Bonnechere Caves, The Whitewater Brewing Company and Renfrew’s newly renovated downtown shopping area. A short drive along highway 60 to Douglas will showcase Old Order Mennonite markets where locally grown fruits and vegetables may be purchased. Guided tours with picnics may be arranged as well. End your day with a gourmet 5-course meal at the farm and relax near the campfire under the stars.
