Our Towns

Burnstown is a picturesque village nestled in the heart of the Ottawa Valley and home to world-renowned artists, unique galleries, shops, and eateries, all housed in heritage buildings. You are invited to take time to Discover, Linger, and Rejuvenate as you sample the many tastes and flavours of art, excellent coffee and food, jewellery, pottery, clothing, and our seasonal farmers’ market. Burnstown is a destination to return to over and over.

Arnprior, aka “the Prior”, is the gateway to tourism in the Upper Ottawa Valley, a town in Renfrew County, in the eastern portion of Southern Ontario, Canada. It is located at the mouth of the Madawaska River, as it enters the Ottawa River in the Ottawa Valley. The town is a namesake of Arnprior, Scotland, and is known for lumber, hydropower generation, aerospace, farming and its proximity to Ottawa and the national capital region.
Arnprior offers year-round recreation & leisure activities for residents and visitors alike.

Named after the town of Renfrew in Scotland. Much of Renfrew’s current prosperity comes from being the commercial centre for over 30,000 residents of the surrounding small towns and rural region, with over 450 small service or commercial businesses.
Renfrew is an easy rest or activity stop for outdoor enthusiasts on their way to nearby whitewater rafting, boating, camping, hunting, golfing, fishing, snowmobiling, down-hill skiing, and cross-country skiing.

White Lake The historic heart of the White Lake area boasts a restaurant, a general store, and LCBO, and a church.

Where the name originated may be a bit of a mystery, but “‘Waba Sagaigun” is native Algonkin meaning simply “White Lake”. In the earliest survey’s of the region, White Lake was shown as “Wabolak” and “Wa-ba-lak”. St. Andrew’s United Church sits majestically at the centre of White Lake Village and is very active with regular events and weekly Sunday Service at 8 a.m. Plan to drop by and experience the history in this over 129-year-old fully operational church anytime, including very special services at Christmas and Easter. Feeling romantic?? St. Andrew’s is also a great place to get married.

Architects & Designers

Peter Mansfield Architect
Our design approach emphasizes a very site specific and efficient integration of our client’s needs. Wherever possible, priority is given to views, natural light and the ‘fusion’ of the surrounding landscape and the physical building. The architectural style can be described as ‘warm modern’ where the palette of materials and colours combine with, rather than compete with the site.

The design process has three phases. It starts with the ‘Schematic Design Phase’ where the client expectations, site characteristics and micro-climate are thoroughly explored – this dialogue includes the builder (if possible) as well as local planning authorities. The process then transitions to the ‘Design Development Phase’ incorporating geo-located 3D modelling of the proposed design complete with all exterior finish materials. Once all parties are satisfied, the ‘Construction Documents and Field Review Phase’ continues with a fully detailed (and permit ready) set of construction drawings and regular inspections. We are with you for the entire journey.

Peter Mansfield Architect is a community-based practice in Almonte, Ontario (located midway between Ottawa and Burnstown). For over twenty years we have undertaken a variety of projects ranging from adaptive re-use, commercial, institutional and numerous custom residential commissions.

RiverSong president and designer Michael Neelin has designed over 300 custom handcrafted homes and renovations as an independent professional since 1984.
