By far the best way to get around Ottawa is by bicycle. Angela is an all-season cyclist and has a loaner bike and lock available. You can reach most popular Ottawa destinations in 10 minutes. There are also beautiful scenic routes along the rivers and canal.
Our Neighbourhood – The Glebe
We are located in the Glebe, which is a central, treed, urban, thriving n eighbourhood. Two blocks from the house you can find coffee shops, restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, boutiques, post office, wine bar, radical bookshop, whatever. The Glebe is bounded by the Rideau Canal in the east, so you can go for a scenic walk, bike-ride or skate (depending on the season). We are 10 minutes away from Parliament Hill and 15 minutes from the Byward Market Area (by bus). The Glebe is also located right between the two Universities (Ottawa University to the east, Carleton to the west, both in easy 20 minute walking distance). Here is a video about the scene in the Glebe:
Algonquin Land and History
The Glebe is a part of the Algonquin traditional territory and is unceded. The Algonquin were one of the indigenous nations who were party to the Treaty at Niagara in 1764 which ratified the Royal Proclamation of 1763 and was encoded in the Twenty Four Nations Wampum Belt. The first step in a tentative land claim settlement was announced in December 2012, but may not reflect a full recognition of the treaty rights.
The Glebe House, location of Angela’s Bed & Breakfast was built in 1899. The Glebe has a rich settler history since about the mid-1800’s. The Ottawa Glebe grew out of a Clergy Reserve granted to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in 1837. By the 1890s it was a streetcar suburb two miles south of Parliament Hill.
Today, the Glebe has a unique urban village character in the heart of Ottawa.
