You'll lounge on designer furniture that is ideal for cozying up by the fireplace, new 4K Super HD smart TV with Cable, Netflix and internet access, and after a nightcap or two, you'll fall fast asleep on one of two brand new memory foam mattresses with cooling gel, our modular queen bed with memory foam topper or our twin memory foam floor mattress which can fit in any of the 3 bedrooms or set up in the living area for the night owl.

The house is organized in a straightforward way. We live very close to the house and are happy to pop by with anything you might need.
Long term rentals will be provided at a discount. Contact me with your dates and I will try to accommodate your needs.
Our house is in a family oriented neighborhood. Late night noise should be kept inside (Quite time starts at 9pm) and small gatherings are allowed with approval for any visits with 8 or more people.
Our home is a heritage home and is not suitable for large groups or large pets (well trained dogs under 30lbs are no problem WITH prior approval) Please respect our home as you would your own and remove your shoes in the entryway.
Smoking is only allowed on the porch.
Relax and enjoy! You will be in a luxurious and elegant home in a terrific neighborhood.
We have 2 parking spots. Park on the interlock by the red door first. Park on flagstone ONLY if you need to (no heavy trucks). Parking on the street is allowed overnight but limited to 3 hours between 7am and 7pm.
It is essential that you drive slowly as there are usually children running free in the streets. Violations of this policy will result in immediate lockout and forfeiture of deposit and the rate of the remaining stay.
Please hand wash knives.
Do not overheat the house with the double-sided fireplace. It will turn off the furnace and your bedroom will be freezing.
Do not open the downstairs vents when the A/C is on. It will become humid upstairs. The cool air fills the house much more efficiently this way. The thermostat is straightforward.
DO NOT leave doors, windows or even storm windows open with the A/C on as it will lock-up and require repairs.
Do not remove any inside pillows or blankets.
Do not get salty slush on the floors. There are white cleaning cloths in drawer in the kitchen to clean with. Please use them and toss them in the washing machine if wet. Use the boot trays provided.
Be honourable with the honour bar. There are free gourmet teas & coffees, as well as wine, snacks, condiments etc. in the kitchen and in the refrigerator, but as evidenced by a copy of the receipt from the store, we have some items for sale at cost in the bar in the living room. Follow the instructions to report and pay for your consumption.
Please text any questions or if you'd like to restock anything! :)
