My place is close to the main East-West Highway, but in a quiet neighborhood. It is near cross country ski trails, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, yet there are restaurants and dining within walking distance. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood and the colorful coziness. It is easy to access from the road, or from the backyard. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
This old house was built in 1914 and has thick dark old woodwork. It has an accessible, somewhat creepy attic with an extra bedroom up there. I. The basement is a ping pong table and a ski waxing table. There is a little fire pit in a little backyard. The house is between the highway and downtown, an easy walk to most visiting spots.
All the house is available to use. There is a little garden where guest can pick fresh vegetables for the salads and sandwiches. In the winter, the waxing bench is convenient for skiers(if they bring their own wax)
Please treat this like it was Gramma's old fragile house. No smoking, no dogs or sticky kid food on the upholstery, no wet towels on the wooden furniture, shoes in the entry. Pick up your mess. Yup, the kind of things gramma expected.
As a child I visited this area and thought it magnificent. Now, after living here 30 years, I still believe it. My husband and I are both physicians, and bought the old house next door because we loved the old man who couldn't care for it any more. Interestingly, the house we live in is called "the physicians house" because so many doctors have live here. But, actually the little rental house was built by the mining company to house the company doctor. Anyway, we love to share this quaint space with visitors and friends. We will always call it "Jim's house", and we hope you enjoy your stay.
Our family loves being active, we have a little sea kayaking business (Whitecap Kayak), we love to cross country ski, bicycle, hike, and swim. It's rare to meet one of our 4 daughters who are now grown, but if you see us, ask about the "hidden treasures" of the area.
