My husband Marty (a retired physics teacher) and I (Mary) (hairdresser, school bus driver) (also retired) have joined this site to share our funky old place with other travelers. We know how much we enjoy a bit of friendly advice about the area we're traveling in when we are on the road, and a nice, clean bed in a home environment at the end of the day.
We are happy to provide a breakfast ( either cooked or cold, depending on what you would prefer (or how early you would like to start your day. We are the town next to Point Pelee National Park which is a haven for birders and hikers. Canoes are available for rent in the park. There are many beaches for swimming.
This area in the Southern most part of Canada has had a blossom of Wineries. Wineries offer tours and tastings and many special events. You could even book a trolly with a group that drives you around to various wineries. In the fall, a marvelous Wine Festival features acclaimed musicians, local wines and gourmet food on the banks of the Detroit River in Amherstburg. While you drive around, buy local vegetables and fruit on many outdoor stands.
We are about a 30 minute drive to Windsor which has lots of wonderful restaurants,live and movie theaters, art galleries, music at various venues, ethnic areas with great shopping,beautiful old Walkerville (the whiskey baron) and a marvelous water front walk and outdoor theater with festivals during the warm weather.
Our own town, Kingsville, is a small town with a big heart. We have a diverse food scene. Sushi, Greek, Chinese, Ale House, Italian and many other places to try. The ferry to Pelee Island leaves the dock at the end of town in the fall and you can take the ferry from Leamington daily in the summer. Pelee Island is a great place to explore on a bike for the day. Don't forget to visit the Winery on the Island.
We are just a few blocks from Lake Erie where you can stroll around Historical Lakeside Park. There are biking and hiking trails throughout town. We have a few bikes for your use.
You are welcome to use the kitchen to cook if you would prefer to save your money for other things.
Marty and I are musicians and we occasionally have House Concerts featuring various musicians. All of our children play instruments and family get togethers are always fun.
Marty and I and our cat, Tom, would be happy to share our home and knowledge of the area. We want you to relax, kick back and discover what our piece of Canada has to offer.
