Strathmere Hosts Corporate Retreats, Meetings and Conferences in Ottawa
It takes just one visit to Strathmere to know that you’ve found something different from a downtown Ottawa hotel or conference centre. Tree-lined laneways, historic buildings, and beautiful meeting rooms with fieldstone fireplaces, natural lighting, windows that open to fresh country air, and patios overlooking the 200-acre property. We offer culinary experiences and wellness programs.
For over 38 years, Strathmere has been host to overnight and day meetings, combining an historic farm with field to plate menus, comfortable guest rooms and very unique on site activities for guests to relax and rejuvenate for increased creativity and productivity.
From 4 to 160 participants.
Strathmere offers over 10,000 square feet of meeting space located in historic Strathmere Inn, Strathmere Lodge and the Garden House. Fieldstone fireplaces, plenty of natural lighting, and patios overlooking the countryside and gardens are just some of the reasons to choose Strathmere for your next meeting or retreat.
A Culinary Experience
Strathmere is proud to be a scratch kitchen. Working within our philosophy of fresh, local and seasonal, Executive Chef Angelo and Master Gardener Colin, are committed to working hand-in-hand to grow and develop produce that makes its way from our field to your plate. Angelo works exclusively with a butcher for our meat, a fishmonger for the fish and seafood, a fromagiere for cheeses and a local egg farmer.
Each of our 34 guest rooms is unique and tastefully decorated in a tranquil, country fashion with ensuite baths, scenic views, and Canadian antiques and quilts. All rooms are air-conditioned, and have pillow top mattresses, flat screen TVs, hair dryers and complimentary WiFi.

Unique Teambuilding events include Strathmere Country Challenges, and Taco and Chile Cook-offs. Wellness Programs are also popular, including Guided Walks, Private Yoga and Stretch Classes.
Take Time to enjoy a DIY evening activity – Bingo and Beer, Wine and Cheese Tasting, or a bonfire with S’mores under the stars! Strathmere has everything you need and can set you up with a different activity every night!

Other Reasons to Choose Strathmere
A Bonfire under the Stars
Kick back in the evening with a fire under the stars and marshmallows to roast.
Nature walks, cross country ski trails, snowshoes, volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong and an outdoor swimming pool are just some of the activities to enjoy.
It’s easy! Strathmere is 20 to 30 minutes from most Ottawa locations, a 15-minute drive from the VIA Rail Fallowfield Station, and 20 minutes from the Ottawa Airport. Far enough from the City core to create a sense of “getting away”, yet close enough to limit travel time. There is plenty of free parking available.
