Manotick (N 83)
Watson's Mill - ManotickLocated on Long Island, the name is derived from the Algonquin word meaning "island in the river". In 1860 Moss Kent Dickinson opened a sawmill and gristmill, attracting many families from Ottawa to this lovely pastoral setting. The gristmill is located in Dickinson Square across from Moss Kent's house and is now operated as a tourist attraction and, along with the village's craft market, entertainment, many lovely estate homes and artists' studios, provides the visitor with delightful walking tours.

Dickinson Day weekend celebration (first June weekend), Strawberry Social in July

Over 150 stores and restaurants, historic sites, churches, liquor, beer, banks, Post Office, golf courses and tennis. Home of The Millers' Oven, the internationally famous restaurant run by Seniors and offering the best pie on the Rideau!

NavigationNavigation notes
  • Note the narrow channel between marker buoy's N85 and N86, 3/4 mile (1 km) downstream of the entrance to Mahogany Harbour (see picture below)
  • Watch out for the weir abutments (marked as "4 piers" on the chart) located between buoys N75/76 and N60/70.
  • The channel between public wharf and N70 is deep and pretty through old bridge abutments and featuring older classic estate homes and landscaping. The bay centred around markers N69 through 65 provides excellent overnight anchorage and swimming.
