The space

The Glebe House is a lively open-minded family household and a large old rambly house located in the centre of Ottawa on unceded Algonquin territory. We love to welcome guests who have interesting tales to tell and hold politically progressive and eco-friendly values. We believe that a better world is possible. We have a large rambling old house with all amenities including high-speed wifi and a large backyard where we try to grow organic vegetables, BBQ and hold music, poetry and fund-raising shows. You can chill in the backyard; we can lend you a bike to get around; our house can be your home away from home, or your Ottawa office away from your office as you advocate for change. We also like kids and have a playstructure in the back and baby-sitting on-demand available (usually anyways). Hope to meet you! Neighbourhood & Location: We are located in the Glebe, which is a central, treed, urban, thriving neighbourhood. Two blocks from the house you can find coffee shops, restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, boutiques, post office, wine bar, whatever. Transit: One block from bus routes 1 & 7. Five minutes bus ride or 20 minutes walk to Parliament. Best way to get around Ottawa is by bike -- loaner bike + lock is available. We are 5 minutes walk away from the Greyhound Bus Terminal and 15-20 minutes drive from the airport. Free parking can be arranged. Fair-trade organic coffee or tea are always available for free. Our optional full breakfast is an additional $12.00 per person, made with locally sourced and organic ingredients. More info at (website hidden)

Interaction with guests

This varies a lot. I think the biggest factor is whether the guests want to interact or just want their space. But lots of other factors. Most common is that we would have liked to talk more but time was a-fleeting...

Pets: Unfortunately we cannot accept any pets.

Children: We are very child friendly and will make every effort to accommodate your children in a cost-effective way. Childcare can almost always be pre-arranged both on-site in the daytime, as well as in the evenings. A home-based daycare runs Mon-Fri (8:30am to 5:30pm) on the ground floor of the house. We have two kids in the house (13, 14).

Accessibility: Unfortunately the house is not wheelchair accessible. If you need accommodation for a disability or special need, please discuss and we will do our best to accommodate and figure out solutions.

Parking: Can usually be arranged in the day-time. 7pm to 7am free street parking is available except on snow-clearing days.

Negative List: No drugs. No guns.

Alcohol: Alcohol is often shared on the premises. Alcohol is enjoyed in moderation.

Smoking: No smoking inside the house. You can smoke in backyard or front porch.

Food Preferences, Intolerances and Allergies: I am happy to take your preferences and constraints into account in preparing your breakfast. The House is not peanut free.

Chemicals, Toxins & Allergens: We generally use non-chemical cleaners and our food-basket is heavily weighted towards organic, local and wholesome foods. That said, the community household is diverse, busy, and fluid with very few absolute rules. While we clean with some regularity, there is also some dust. Sufferers of MCS or extremely high sensitivity to various allergens should undertake their own assessment and pre-cautions.

We are politically progressive, supportive of unions and labour organization (though not uncritically so), and allies of indigenous peoples.

Respect for People: We expect all guests to behave in a manner that respects the rights and diversity of views of other guests and household members. When there are children in the room, please refrain from using coarse language or inappropriate topics. Violent or abusive behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated.

Respect for Environment: We have a well-organized recycling set-up including a back-yard composter for organics. We try to minimize waste. We are a subscriber to Bullfrog Power which means that we draw on renewable sources of power and also generate our own power with solar panels. We buy significant amounts of organic and local food and usually cook from scratch.

Taxes: We believe in paying our fair share of taxes and benefiting from a well-functioning public service, universal health care and old age pension. We pay 13% harmonized sales tax on all income through airbnb (HST Numb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), and income tax on all income generated by the house after eligible expenses.

My wife and I visited Ottawa last week. We were so lucky to find such wonderful place to stay. Angela helped us to carry our luggage when we checked in and gave us useful information about local interesting places and public transportation so that we saved a lot time and made our visit more successful and joyful. Thanks Angela!

For a little bit extra, you can also get a very delicious breakfast.

Angela was out of town when we visited and her friend Judith stepped in to take care of us during our visit. She was very welcoming, sweet, and helpful when we had questions. The room was a good size for 2 people and my best friend and I slept well. She even let us borrow two of the bikes and she had a map that included bike lanes for us to use. We had a wonderful time here and would highly recommend it. If we're in Ottawa again we will definitely be staying here!

Angela was very responsive which helps when you're searching for a place last minute! Her B&B is very welcoming and clean. Great location with parking (upon request). It was rather hot in the evening, even with the fan on so we had a hard time falling. Otherwise, very accommodating and friendly!

We had a wonderful stay at Angela's place. The rooms are clean and well kept. Angela gave a nice overview of Ottawa and things to do in the city. We had a great conversation in the evening we stayed there. Overall, we would definitely recommend this place.

Angela and family were most welcoming. Lots of time it felt like we had this nice home and sitting room to ourselves, but Angela (or family) were always available if we had questions or wanted suggestions. Their home is in a superb location for walking to many activities & sites. Also, she had bikes and helmets we could borrow which allowed us a nice adventure further afield. We were always in a rush going out the door in the morning, so did not take advantage of the breakfast, but the coffee was good! Our room was as pictured and was quite comfortable. Overall we truly enjoyed our stay at Angela's.

I am politically progressive, environmentally conscious and feminist. I am connected with a number of communities and networks in Ottawa. I am especially happy to facilitate stays of people who are coming to Ottawa to advocate, lobby and network for change in the direction of greater socio-economic justice and environmental sustainability. I'm in mid-life and mother of two wonderful teenagers. We live in a big lively household and can usually find whatever is needed in a snap -- spare bicycle, babysitter, organic mint tea....
