Interaction with Guests
I look forward to meeting you and helping you with getting accustomed to the home. I will be in the area if you have any concerns during your stay. The house is all yours with the only exception being if I need to water etc, to maintain the gardens.
This home is located in the downtown area, and is walking distance to many local shops and businesses. It is also close to the back entrance of Harrison Park. This location offers the opportunity to bike to Harrison Park on streets that are quiet that lead to a well maintained walking path that heads into the park.
This path also hooks up directly with the Bruce trail (hiking). Following the Bruce trail one way from here will lead you through a beautiful and scenic section of the escarpment that leads you to a lookout tower and an ice cream shop! Following the Bruce Trail the other direction is the path that leads you into Harrison park and if you continue to follow it, eventually on to Inglis Falls - a must see!! ( but you can drive there too :)
Close to downtown shopping and area hospital. Short drive to Sauble Beach
There is a long lane that will accommodate 3 vehicles easily. The bus transit system also passes just outside the door.
Other Things to Note
If you used the QR code on my business card to access this site, check that prices are in CAD and not US dollars.
Also, if you have an allergy to cats, you should be aware that I do have two cats. They are not staying at my house this summer, and I keep it very clean. Depending on your sensitivities, it may or may not be an issue. ??
Rules: You must relax and enjoy yourself! Please leave the house in the condition you arrived in. That's about it :)
This was a lovely home to stay in while visiting Owen Sound area. It is a great location from which you can walk to the down town core within a few minutes. The house itself was very comfortable and clean and a wonderful place for my family (5 people) to stay while visiting the area for a wedding. The kitchen is very well equipped if you plan to cook while you are staying here. Angie left lots of little notes to let us know important details and even left us a snack and some iced tea. We know where we would like to stay if we pass through Owen sound in the future :)
This was a great and very spacious house where we felt very welcome. Angie was very informative and helpful before and during our stay. It's a great location with easy walking access to The Bruce Trail, the waterfront and some lovely parks. The house is very well equipped with everything you might need. We highly recommend it!
The home was impeccably clean and ready for our arrival. The host made us iced tea in the fridge, left us a handwritten note and even allowed us to harvest lettuce from her garden! The location was ideal and our host even texted us some additional events that were going on outside of the city. The neighbourhood was friendly, and the house was absolutely perfect in every way. There were even board games and comic books left for my children to play with and read.
Angie made us feel very welcome and she was helpful with maps and advice on where to visit. She was even flexible when we needed to drop our cooler and things off early on the way to the beach. Listing is close to everything. Just great
Angie's home is lovely, and exactly as described. Although we did meet her, she made us feel at home and welcome - like visiting a favourite aunt. She had prepared a refreshing Icetea for us, that was exactly what we needed after the long road, and left us a few welcoming notes. The directions were straight forward and we found the house without any trouble. Thank you!

It is my hope that you feel at home in our home. Whether you are sitting on the front balcony watching Owen Sound life pass by or sitting quietly in the back yard surrounded by gardens, I hope you find it fun and relaxing.
