O ovom smještaju
A beautiful home near the river and parks and the Rideau Canal. Walk to town! The Rideau Canal is just a few blocks away. We have a big, sunny room with a queen-sized bed waiting for you -- and an ambiance where our guests become friends, and grow to love this neighbourhood as much as we do.
Welcome to our home in the Bank-and-Sunnyside neighbourhood. Our home is full of antiques and art, and the master bedroom is a spacious corner room filled with natural light. We are a few blocks from the Rideau Canal, and just a block from the Ottawa River. The shops and restaurants of Lansdowne Park are a 10-minute walk across a charming bridge over the canal, and you can walk downtown in 55 minutes, or take the bus that stops across the street. But most of all, enjoy the flavour of Old Ottawa South.
Kitchen facilities, barbecue, living room, back deck.
Parking is available in the driveway.

I work out of my home, and will likely be here during your stay. I'm happy to share stories and provide advice on things to do. If you like to sing or play a musical instrument, I may haul out the guitar. My son Jacob also lives in the house, and we sometimes rent out a second room to Airbnb guests.
I am a professional writer who works at home. Jacob also live here, and often there is another Airbnb guest another bedroom.
This is our home, and we share it with guests who treat it as if it was their home as well. No smoking in the house. It's the custom in Canada to remove outside footwear when coming into the house; this is especially important in winter when snow gets tracked in.
Some of the rooms are furnished with antiques. They're great to look at and comfortable to live with, but need a little bit of extra care. Please hang wet towels in the bathroom rather than on the furniture, and place drinks on the coasters, rather than on the wood.
You're welcome to use the kitchen, dining room and other living areas, but please be sure to clean up afterwards.
In my 20s, I travelled far and wide with a backpack, a guitar and a typewriter. My son is now almost the age I was when I went out to see the world, and we're looking forward to welcoming the world to our home. I am a professional speechwriter, but these days I seem to spend more time writing and promoting the historical novels I've written for young readers --- ages 9-16.
