Grace House is situated on 100 acres of water, forest and marshland . Our heated pool is open from early June until Labour Day. The lake is not suitable for swimming or fishing due to suspended silt from ground springs. It is excellent for kayaking and canoeing. Fishing is available on the neighbouring lakes - ten minute walk from the house. Viewing of the stars and Milky Way in a dark sky is a special feature of this location. The house offers two camp fire pits, one located by the water and the second close to the pool.

I love the energy and opportunity of the city with the ability to retreat to the country and be restored by the wind, the waves, and the wildlife. My husband is a Christian minister and I teach at a post-secondary institution in the area of psychotherapy and spiritual care. We both love to cook, paddle, and read having raised five children together at Grace House.
