Single room, one queen size bed on ground floor in quiet, historical Fort Langley. Location is within walking distance of the Fort Langley village with its many delightful shops and restaurants. Bus stop is only a five minute walk
This room is an original '70's room with the '70's style flooring - Cushion Floor, it was called. The queen sized bed is high-end and very comfortable - ask my granddaughter. "I love this bed", she told us the last time she visited. There is a closet, a computer table, a chest of drawers and shelves for storing your dry food should you be staying for a time.
Guests are welcome to use our cooking facilities including stove, oven, microwave, pots, pans, plates etc. Please clean up after.
Also, use of our washer and dryer is available as is an iron and ironing board should you have a need.
The bathroom is shared.
We provide coffee and a cold cereal breakfast in the morning, up to 11am. That is a do it yourself project. If you don't drink all the coffee, I'll have a cup when I get up!
We have WiFi. There is no TV in this room but we can put one there for you at extra cost ($10.00 per day) or you can watch TV with my wife. She likes Wheel of Fortune, The Price is Right and 70's movies/TV shows - no violence or swearing in those. I prefer sports and movies...
Interaction with guests
Generally, my wife and I are available to answer questions about the local area and what things there are to see. For example: A local pizza place called JIM'S PIZZA has an excellent product. One visitor raved about his first ever pizza from "Jims". He even offered to share. My wife and I just smiled and said, "Yes, we know! Enjoy!" It's a pick up and delivery style pizza place.
Other things to note
Fort Langley is the first capital of BC and there are two museums, a Farm Museum and The Langley Centennial Museum. (The Farm Museum closes for the winter...that is what farmers do - they close for the winter) and, an old style Fort - Fort Langley National Historical Site. This Fort duplicates what happened many years ago in the pioneer fur trading era. The BC Farm Museum (in season) is huge with so much historical 'stuff' of interest in it - even an airplane, used to spray the crops, is hung from the ceiling!
Many who come here enjoy the Fort to Fort Trail both for walking and bike riding. It goes right along The Fraser River and passes the Fort Langley Golf course - one of four in this area.
A five minute drive will take you to a Municipal Recreation facility where there is a full sized swimming pool, a hot tub, sauna, gymnasium for basketball, badminton and table tennis...Ping Pong, for some!
The town of Fort Langley has much to offer for those who like antiques and old 'stuff'. There are several such stores here.
The Fort Pub is within walking distance - about 15 minutes there and 20 back....
We expect that all guests will be honourable, honest and respectful. We also expect that each guest will arrive with their own personality and hope they will enjoy their time with us.
Recycling is important to us. We compost and recycle everything. We have a bucket for fresh vegetable scraps. We have a place for chicken bones, steak bones, bacon fat and cooked vegetables. All paper products have a place so they can be recycled. Smoking is allowed outside or in the attached garage. Please dispose of cigarette butts in the provided ashtrays.
Please no showers after 9 PM...there are exceptions...please inquire.

I have a burn to grow vegetables and I do it in my backyard. I try to emulate the desires of Certified Organic Farmers. Water conservation is important to me and I have water barrels connected to my house down spouts and the water is then run through garden hoses, on the ground, to several barrels located in strategic locations. I never wear white pants.....
I like war movies not because of war but because of the relationships of those portrayed.
I joke, tease, encourage and challenge people to be better but at heart, I am a serious person and I have stories to tell, but listen also. My favorite saying? I squished that to this - oknwht?. Can you figure that one out?
