Our Perspective

How we see Chartwell Stonehaven Retirement Residence

Chartwell Stonehaven offers a fulfilling, rich life. Chartwell’s reputation as an industry leader is based on everything you’ll find here, including completely contemporary design and décor both internally and externally, all the amenities you can want, and a caring community made up of both staff and residents. And still, there are distinctly excellent aspects of Chartwell Stonehaven.

The exterior of the property alone is a big part of community life. Stonehaven is surrounded by trees, with Deevy Pines Park across the road and many groomed walking trails nearby in this quiet area of Kanata. The peaceful centre courtyard features pleasant gardens and beautiful landscaping.

Inside, there’s a welcoming lobby where you’ll be welcomed by a gracious “director of first impressions.” The interior is clean, contemporary and brightly lit throughout. Amenities include an activity room, bistro/café, chapel, craft room, fitness room, games room, gardens, library, lounges, TV room, spa and wellness centre, and more. Activities in Chartwell Stonehaven include billiards, a book club, guest speakers, outings to local attractions and shopping, shuffleboard, yoga, and more. Suites here are also among the most spacious you’ll find among retirement homes anywhere. Dining is elegantly laid out in a spacious dining room, and the fare itself combines a focus on nutrition with delectable flavour. All of this creates what can truly be called a lifestyle for seniors here. None of that speaks truly of the daily life seniors live here.

Like other Chartwell communities, Stonehaven is renowned for its warm, welcoming staff, and a positive atmosphere that’s filtered from the top down. The number of staff who’ve been here for many years is confirmation of a principled organization with solid values. That’s not to mention their being well-versed in dealing with seniors’ needs, experience residents appreciate. Staff are genuinely interested in seniors and their concerns. Families who trust loved ones to Chartwell Stonehaven gain lasting peace of mind.

Reviews of Chartwell Stonehaven Retirement Residence

What residents and their loved ones say about Chartwell Stonehaven Retirement Residence in reviews.

W Stangle, family member

"My mother decided to move to Kanata from Montreal after my father died in 2022. When she arrived she had a sudden health crisis and I had to quickly find a residence for her. We had visited Stonehaven before and I went in to see if they had room. From the second I walked in the help I received was overwhelming. We were able to arrange for her to move in a week later and get the care she needed to recover, and for me to be able to keep going. Mom has been there for 6 months now and is adjusting w..."

Situated in the well-established Bridlewood area of Kanata—a planned community that’s one of the fastest-growing cities in Ontario—Chartwell Stonehaven is easily accessible via major roadways and just minutes from downtown Ottawa. You can walk your dog in Deevy Pines Park, or appreciate the convenience of a medical clinic, pharmacy and restaurants all next door. Our residence is only a short drive from many urban amenities, including restaurants, big-box stores, cinemas, libraries and the Kanata Golf and Country Club. Two major malls offer prime shopping; sports fans love attending Ottawa Senators games at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata; and those who take pleasure in artistic and cultural pursuits enjoy the Ron Maslin Playhouse, art galleries and live theatre. We also offer regular outings to both Ottawa and Valley attractions, as the city is only minutes away, while we also border the quieter outskirts of town.

Chartwell Stonehaven is located at 70 Stonehaven Drive, Kanata, Ontario, K2M 3B4.
