Chartwell Rideau Place Retirement Residence

550 Wilbrod Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1N 9M3
"Exquisite retirement living along the serene waters of the Rideau River."

Doves cooing in leafy canopies; sweet-smelling flowers swaying in a light breeze; sunshine sparkling on calm river waters; the timeless architecture of storied embassies and bridges—no, you haven’t been transported to the banks of a charming European town, but to Chartwell Rideau Place. Found at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the sophisticated Sandy Hill neighbourhood, our upscale retirement community in Ottawa is reminiscent of a classic country manor, bounded by striking embassies and the Rideau River. An independent and active residence, we offer a lifestyle that is truly exceptional.

Home with a view

Swans gliding across the river and rose gardens blooming along stone pathways—one of the most attractive features of Chartwell Rideau Place is our serene natural surroundings. Whether from the comfort of your beautiful suite, while sipping a glass of wine in the dining room, or while strolling along the perimeter of our attractive outdoor terrace and gardens, charming river views accompany you wherever you go. Many remark how lovely it is to be living in the heart of Ottawa—within a ten-minute drive of any amenity or service you could need—yet feel so at peace and close to nature due to the private locale.

Five-star service

In the Ottawa community, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more friendly and dedicated team of staff than ours. At Chartwell Rideau Place, our attention to detail and service is unparalleled. Many members of staff have been with us for more than a decade, and speak both English and French, reflecting our bilingual population of residents. However, all speak the language of customer service, going above and beyond to meet and exceed expectations. We are committed to delivering personalized service that makes you feel relaxed and contented all day long.

Bon Appétit

Our residents take great pleasure in our delectable meals. In fact, our food has been described by many as outstanding. You can expect things like Chicken Kiev for lunch or dinner, and should you rather order from our à la carte menu, you’ll be pleased to know beautiful offerings like steak and shrimp come standard. Here, you can dine according to your schedule, with no set meal times, and sit wherever and with whomever you choose.

With many newly-renovated amenities and features enhancing our country-manor design appeal, our senior living community is an enviable place to settle down in during your retirement years. A gorgeous natural environment, unmatched customer service and delicious dining—not to mention a breadth of leisure and social opportunities, as well as discrete support services as needed—converge to create a place you’ll want to call home.
