This unique and fully restored farmhouse outside of the Canadian capital of Ottawa was the childhood home of Dr. James Naismith, who created the sport of basketball. Opened to the public in 2021, for the first time you can now occupy this amazing piece of Canadian History for a few nights. Set on 45 acres of rolling farmland, this 1850s era designated heritage manor featuring Georgian Revival architecture with Regency Style elements must be seen to be believed. Stylish, historic, and peaceful.

Where you’ll be

Mississippi Mills, Ontario, Canada

Backcountry skiing and mountain biking trails are located right on the rolling 45-acre farmland property. Just minutes from Ottawa – the nation’s capital, the surrounding area features country roads, stunning waterfalls, and a way of life that makes it easy to slow down and breathe deeply. In the nearby village of Mississippi Mills, charming storefronts, historic buildings, and waterfalls mustn't be missed. Film crews sometimes take over historic downtown Mill Street, and the village has earned a reputation as 'The perfect small town.’
