A lovely old home with a fantastic veranda. Very well decorated, equipped and close to everything, highway 401, the river, shops and restaurants. Joanne and Rick are very available or not, as you choose, and we had some nice chats abouts the area and travelling in other countries. Highly recommend staying here.

Joanne and Rick were amazing. From check-in all the way to check-out. First off, they have an amazing space. It was clean, comfortable and had all the little things needed to make you feel at home. The beds were comfortable, and the owners were so welcoming. We hosted dinner for our family while we were there and their kitchen had everything we needed. The location was so close to the waterfront and Fort Wellington.

From the second we booked our stay at Joanne and Ricks place we received so much assistance. Joanne was extremely friendly and communicative with all of our needs. She was very easy to coordinate our stay and was always available for us to ask any questions or get help when we needed. Absolutely recommend this place for anyone who stays in Prescott. It was a joy.

We had a lovely 2-night stay in Prescott as the first stop in our road trip. Joanne and Rick were very welcoming, attentive and available. The home is spacious and more beautiful than the photographs. We found it clean and safe for our crawling 8-month-old. A playpen and highchair were kindly offered but we had brought our own. The neighbourhood is quiet and the neighbours were very friendly. Thanks so much again, Joanne and Rick!

My partner Rick and I live in Prescott, Ontario. We love to travel and prefer to live more like a local than a tourist when we do. We enjoy exploring, heritage, architecture, and getting to learn about the area.
We recently listed our first airbnb place. We hope people can experience our place. We can work with you, if you like, to set up a very entertaining vacation.
We are excited to embark on being hosts in airbnb. Please check out our place!
