Surrounding by conservation land, you have access to trails directly from the backyard, ideal for a morning jog. Located in a cul-de-sac, the street is very quiet. Comfortable 3+1 bedroom house it will sleep 8 people.
Try to relax in the shade at the edge of the forest, in front of the back deck, you will see all kind of birds coming to visit!
There is an outdoor shower (that needs work) next to a large wooden deck. Washer, dryer, bathtub, fridge, large gas grill, kitchen supplies and dishwasher are all available for you to use. The 2-car garage has a ping pong table.
We live here year-round so the house doesn't look like a rental and is kept very neat, we clean it every week whether or not we rent it. You should feel like home!
We have a bird, a Macaw, that lives in his cage in the garage by the window. He is generally quiet but can quack once in a while to get your attention, if he sees an animal outside, or if the garage is opened for too long. He loves company but only skilled people should handle him, expect a bite if you handle him like a dog.
Guest will have access to the whole house, the garage and the yard. But the house is our primary house, we will free up as much space as possible. There are some space not accessible to our guests: the shed, 3 closets (one in the mud room, one in the master bedroom, one in the baby's room), the 2 bathroom drawers, basement fridge.
Interaction with guests
This is our primary house, we live here year-round. But we will move out during your stay and you will not see us until your departure. We usually do self-check in, let us know if you prefer us to handle the keys in person.
Other things to note
The newly made 4th bedroom is located in the partially finished basement and doesn't have a window. Feel free to use our gas grill on the deck, but it's the responsibility of the tenant to fill up the tank if you run out of propane.
We only have one strict policy: the floor is made of soft pine wood and therefore no shoes are allowed in the house, it will damage it. Also for that same reason we don't allow pets but may make an exception if it's a small and well behave pet, please inquire! We would be very grateful if you could follow these two rules. Please email if you have any questions!
