Your Special Event starts here...
Does your group want to get away for a retreat or do you just want time away to relax in a quiet and comfortable historic setting on the banks of the Madawaska River in downtown Arnprior?
The MacNamara House is a perfect retreat setting for arts groups, hobbyists, yoga, meditation or any activity that improves with time away from the routine.
Events indoors or outdoors
Whether you are looking for an indoor or outdoor venue, the MacNamara House offers an "all in one" environment that promises to make your event special and memorable. Our beautiful historic buildings, magnificent gardens on the banks of the Madawaska River, central location and comfortable bed and breakfast options may be ideal for you.
Are you looking for a venue for a sit down catered affair for a family birthday, bridal or baby shower, small wedding, outdoor plein air artists' retreat, intimate arts & crafts show, or a small reception style gathering?
Describe your special event to us and we'll work with you to make it a success.
Reserve the Artist's Studio
The Artist's Studio, located in the old carriage house on the banks of the Madawaska River, next to the MacNamara House, offers a unique retreat option for artists wanting to get away and concentrate on work without the distractions of home or your own studio.
Stay in our Bed & Breakfast and reserve the studio space to kick off or wrap up that series you need to finish for your upcoming solo show.
If you want to host an art group to work on art together, or are thinking that an art workshop would be fun, useful and attractive to your arts community, call us. The studio space is large enough to hold small workshop retreats with accommodation as needed.
