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 the impressive structure of Chartwell Rockcliffe comes into view—one that presides over the landscape and can even be glimpsed while out shopping or enjoying a cappuccino in the enviable New Edinburgh neighbourhood our retirement community calls home. Step out of the car and you’ll hear the gentle thrum of moving water coming from nearby Rideau River, as well as birds chirping in century-old trees shading our garden terrace. And the serene, charmed experience doesn’t stop there: venture inside and you’ll be met by the sights and sounds of people being welcomed into the dining room by our maître d’; the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee coming from the library, where someone may be reading their morning paper or playing chess; or perhaps the clink of glassware from the bar as a sports game plays on the flat-screen television.

The lifestyle at Chartwell Rockcliffe is truly majestic, and a retirement aspiration for many in the Ottawa community. Here’s why:

Historic skyline views

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 unique to our island locale, as well as the historic downtown Ottawa skyline. Can you imagine anything more relaxing and luxurious than enjoying a glass of wine or brandy as the sun sets over Parliament Hill?

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 outdoor 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.

Impeccable white-glove service

At Chartwell Rockcliffe, no effort is spared 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 supportive living services that can help you feel your best, discretely delivered in your suite. Whether it be the maître d’, receptionist or any other attendant, our goal is to execute on a customer service experience that leaves you feeling pampered and very satisfied with your new residence.

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.
