Chartwell Rockcliffe Retirement Residence

100 Island Lodge Road, Ottawa, Ontario K1N 0A2
“Lead an elegant retirement at one of the city’s most desired addresses.”

As you drive across the bridge to exclusive Porter Island, your breath may catch as Chartwell Rockcliffe comes into view, encircled by the Rideau River. Located in the enviable New Edinburgh neighbourhood, the lifestyle at Chartwell Rockcliffe is truly majestic and a retirement aspiration for those who wish to continue to enjoy life to the fullest. Here’s why:

Impeccable service

We spare no effort when it comes to providing service that is truly first-class. Our attention to detail and presentation is immaculate—from the fresh flowers and pressed linens on every dining table, to the art shows and garden parties we host for the community, to the way your suite is refreshed after a housekeeping service. We also offer optional care services that can help you feel your best, discretely delivered in your suite. Whether it be our Maître D’, Concierge, Chaffeur or any other member of our team, our goal is to deliver an experience that leaves you feeling pampered, secure and very satisfied.

Gorgeous views and serene green space

It’s no secret that Chartwell Rockcliffe boasts the most spectacular views. From the privacy of your suite, as well as from our many well-appointed amenities, you can take in forested or glimmering river vistas, Parliament Hill, as well as the historic downtown Ottawa skyline. Can you imagine anything more relaxing and luxurious than enjoying a glass of wine or Scotch as the sun sets over Parliament Hill and reflects on the water? Our residents also relish time spent on our outdoor courtyard and patio. Shaded by century-old trees, our gardens are where you can relax in the quiet serenity of nature, enjoying a cup of tea with a good book, bird watching, or socializing with friends over a delicious, freshly-prepared meal.

Contemporary elegance

Every aspect of Chartwell Rockcliffe is meant to reflect the distinguished tastes and refined lifestyles of our residents. Our design aesthetic is both stylish and contemporary, yet incorporates traditional details that speak to Ottawa’s entrenched history. From our Julianna Spa and Roxxy Theatre, to our remarkable garden terrace and library—with its collection of over 4,000 resident-curated volumes—you’ll see firsthand how refinement awaits around every corner. Our large, light-filled suites are equally as sophisticated, though we welcome further tailoring of your private space according to your individual design preferences.

With five-star service, contemporary amenities and offerings, and a stunning location that can’t be bested, it’s no wonder that Chartwell Rockcliffe remains one of the most sought-after addresses in the city.


To help you feel safe and supported, our Care Assist Program—an offering of à la carte wellness services and all-inclusive care packages—further provides you with the flexibility to add or remove services. This empowers you to create a customized care plan that meets your unique needs, preferences and abilities so you can feel your best each and every day.
