Interaction with Guests
We airbnb the upstairs and downstairs level of this house. I ask that both guests be respectful of each other :) We will meet you to show you the property and provide you with some travel information, but we do not live here.
Other Things to Note
We enjoyed our stay. Vince was welcoming and informative about the house and surroundings. The king size bed and pillows were very comfortable. The porches were exceptional and welcoming. Morning coffee on the porch with the surrounding bush and nearby stream was a defining moment of the trip. Preparation of meals was easy with utensils close to hand and a good stove. The fridge and freezer are oversized and vey useful. Downtown Barrie is a finve minute drive from the house. The location is excellent allowing you to leave the city in any direction with ease. We intend to revisit to enjoy the Fall colours. -- Fraser & Irene Ross
