  • The Watson's Mill is an amazing historical place to visit. With four floors of fascinating history and the classic ways to make flour to learn about, there are also stories of the people who had worked there years ago. There is wonderful service from the people who work there, that are always willing to speak to you. Highly recommend visiting.
  • nice spot. Quant. Manotick village is a cute place. Great for a relaxing day away from the city.
  • Went for the Christmas market and carol singing. Arrived at 3:20 because the market was advertised till 4 they closed 90% of the market at 3:30 was rather disappointed at that. Managed to still do carriage ride. The carol singing was lovely. Looked a very interesting mill in a beautiful location.
  • This is a very cool actually functional Old Mill. If you go on the right day the mill is actually operating and you can buy some of the flour that they produce there. Located in Manotick on the Rideau River the scenery is absolutely beautiful in particular in the fall. After a tour I highly recommend a stop at Miller's oven just down the road for lunch. The lemon meringue pie can't be beat.
  • Watson's Mill is a nice little historic building in Manotick. The volunteers wear period clothes and offer tours of the Mill (It's set up a bit like a mini museum). The Mill is free to visit. They sell duck pellets that you can feed to the ducks that hang out near the Mill. There is also a used bookstore across the street which is affiliated with the Mill and usually has classic novels for a steal.
