  • Joanne was a very warm and welcoming host. Really enjoyed talking with her about yoga and life in general. She was very helpful and had many maps and pamphlets for all the local attractions. The basement room and private bathroom were very neat and clean, and her house is downright peaceful. Thornbury is a great mid point between Owen Sound and Wasaga Beach, with the Blue Mountains and Collingwood just minutes down the highway. I had a great experience and would recommend it highly to travellers looking for a quiet, simple, peaceful room. And a nice host!

About
I moved to Thornbury to be close to the water and ski hills, and for the hiking trails. My favorite coffee is at the Ashanti Coffee shop in town. Down the road, in the town of Clarksburg is a mecca for artists who paint. I'll often drop in at the art galleries to look at the new paintings they have for sale. I'm friendly and like to chat. I teach yoga classes and see people for private classes too. Sometimes I rent out the whole condo. It's a different price. Contact for details. We share the kitchen and fridge space.
