Other Things to Note
All good people who love to travel and have a good time, love the outdoors, are respectful, open-minded and open-hearted pls come and stay with us!
Smoking ok but outside the house, only. Butts in trash. No glass in sauna! Well-behaved dogs welcome. Standard respect to owner's belongings. Respect the need for quiet if studio or office are in use pls. Great design takes much great thought…and inspiration. That's where you come in…
The house was exactly as described. Location was great for us, quiet and we could easily reach the main beach area.
We had a great time!
Our experience here was amazing! The pictures are exactly how it looks! Gorgeous! There is literally no complains and nothing I would change about this beautiful place! It was very comfortable and a lot of fun! I definitely plan on staying here again in the near future! Thanks again for having us Annie! :)
YOU ROCK, CHIQUITAAAAAAAA!!!
T'was my GREAT pleasure to share my home with you and to know that you enjoyed an experience that I could help bring to life for you and your friends! I look forward to the next time we can do this! LIFE IS GOOD when you get to meet new awesome people! Be well. Be very, very well! xa
The house is exactly as seen in the pictures, the lighting and decor are outstanding. The arrival and departure process was flawless. We felt right at home from the minute we pulled in until the moment we left... and believe me, we did not want to leave.
Annie was away for the weekend but was outstanding with replying to our texts and calls for help in the house, and even rushed home to see us off right before check-out.
Do yourself a favour and pamper yourself for a week...or a weekend at Annie's dream home. The windows are inspiring, the fireplace is cozy and the sauna is a dream. Also, do not leave without asking Annie about some of her traveling stories; learning about her passion and love for her work and for life in general was the icing on the cake right before leaving.
10/10 for everything. Awesoem place, awesome host. Thank you so much Annie and you will definitely see us again, Even if it's just for coffee in Toronto!
My heart is FULL, Raz. You were THE ULTIMATE guests...the ones who prove that we do this for love not so much for the money. Connections are worth a million times more and I was very happy to have made your acquaintance. We know good folks when we are with them and I look forward to the next time we can all hook up again. Gratitude. Greatitude!
Annie's place is awesome. A wonderful immersive creative environment that we felt honored to be able to share in. The house has wonderful tall windows that flood the place with openness and light, the kitchen is very workable and the bedrooms comfortable.
We were lucky enough to be there when the georgian bay was fully and beautifully frozen over - wow. Very exciting, and to come back from a walk on the frozen lake to be able to sweat it out in the incredible wood burning sauna. ( dont miss out on that experience - yes water on the rocks is good in the right proportions)
We had a perfect experience. Location is awesome, house is very cozy, well designed and decorated. Annie is a great host, very welcoming and cheerful.
Annie is one of the most incredible Airbnb hosts I've ever had. She was extremely responsive in communications leading up to the weekend, greeted us with open arms, and even shared a drink with us upon arrival. Her vibrant personality is reflected perfectly in the decor and layout of the house; open, bright, and filled with creativity! I will definitely try to come back here soon... it's an Airbnb gem!

I and my girlfriend stayed at Annie's beautiful house for 2 nights, and it was awesome experience! The house is very beautiful and relaxing, filled with interesting art pieces. Annie is super chill and nice person to talk to, and I would definitely come back again!!
