Enjoy your own guest suite in our heritage home. Come and go via your private entrance or visit with hosts if you're in a social mood.
Just renovated bathroom with rain shower head + bedroom with queen sized bed & foyer with stocked mini fridge, microwave & kettle. Great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers!

Our little guest suite is a semi-private space on the garden level of our home, off our laundry room.
We live in a quirky old house over 100 years old! Don’t be surprised by the bolder coming out of the floor.... it’s part of the foundation! We hope you’ll find it charming and enjoy the experience of our unique little airbnb rental.
We live upstairs and would love to meet you and tell you what our favourite local spots are! Our neighbors know us well and may welcome you. Feel free to let them know that you are our invited airbnb guests.
Your private side entrance opens into the shared laundry room. We access it occasionally for laundry and stroller storage.
A door from the laundry room leads into your private bedroom and another door into your private bathroom.
