I have completed 1 of my 2 month stay with Sheila in Peterborough. She has been a marvelous host. I've felt right at home since the first day I arrived. Downtown is right at an 8 minute walk, which has really allowed me to enjoy Peterborough in its entirety. It has been a wonderful experience so far! I highly recommend Sheila.

Staying at Sheila's place is like staying at your best friend's home. It's a very comfortable and welcoming home. You have your privacy and also the opportunity to share conversation and tea with her. She provides a very generous variety of breakfast offerings. The room is quite roomy and if you didn't bring anything to read, the bookcase has many interesting books. I have back problems, but I found the bed comfortable and slept very well. You also have Internet access. If you choose, you can use your own private entrance to your room. The home is very close to downtown Peterborough.

Dear Valerie, I am so lucky that you chose my humble cottage for your stay in Peterborough! Imagine finding out that your grandchildren and mine already know one another in school! Just another reason we MUST stay in touch!! I was especially happy that you slept well and did not need the extra memory foam you had brought with you for your back. Till we meet again!. Sheila Bay

Great space for a individual or couple looking for a cost effective Petersborough get-away. The room has its own entrance. There is a table and Wi-Fi for doing work. The shared bathroom has the essentials. Shelia is an absolute legend with some amazing stories. She shares her house and stories with grace and demeaur. I feel fortunate to have met such a wonderful soul.

Sheila's place was great and so comfortable. The room is decorated nicely and its right off of the bathroom. There was a bottle of Italian mineral water and a soda in the room. Nice touch! Breakfast was self service which was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed chatting with Sheila and found her to be a generous, interesting and kind person. I would gladly return.

Sheila is a GREAT hostess; very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. She even provides a variety of breakfast fixings (you make & clean up), but a lot of organic and good things. VERY accommodating. The room is comfy and has its own entrance IF you need it; LOTS of interesting books and two GREAT cats. I would suggest IF you use her place to bring a pair of slippers or something as she has a "no shoes" policy in the house. But I HIGHLY recommend her and plan to go back whenever I'm in the area.
