Jones Falls and Hotel Kenney
With a spectacular 900 feet of waterfront, Hotel Kenney is a recreational paradise. Located across from Jones Falls on the Rideau Canal and designated a United Nations World Heritage site, Hotel Kenney features over 600 feet of docking facilities to accommodate all travelers. Known for its pristine waters, world class fishing, boating, canoeing - Jones Falls has it all.
Opened in 1832, the Rideau Canal was one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century, and is considered the best-preserved ‘slackwater’ canal in North America. The canal stretches from Kingston to the mouth of the St. Lawrence to Ottawa and visitors come from across North America to travel its waterways and explore its historic lock stations. One of twenty-four lock stations on the Canal, Jones Falls has a series of four entirely hand-operated locks.
A popular wedding destination, Jones Falls is said to have been described by Queen Victoria's daughter Louise as "by far the loveliest place in all of Canada." The site has attracted visitors from abroad including presidents, royalty and celebrities over its 142 year history. Hotel Kenney is a rare real estate opportunity just brimming with potential!
