The Space

There is a room with a double bed and a river view, or a single room with a very comfy bed and a beautiful treed view. Each room is $62, which includes porridge, fruit and tea or coffee. Organic smoothies extra. If traveling with a friend pleas add $7 for the second breakfast.
You are welcome to stay as B&B guests or stay longer and share the kitchen with me. If you would like to explore life in the country for a while, float on a river, or sit by a fire, and would be happiest renting a room in a relaxed, country home atmosphere, then this may be just right for you.
The old century farmhouse is on two acres along the stunning Bonnechere River within walking distance of the town of Eganville. Three different verandas are available in which to read, relax or meditate. There are places to be private as well as opportunities to be as involved with others as you wish.The house is Kim's home as well as an office for the tea company, and therefore separate from the busy farm in Golden Lake. Happy guests have found the house a perfect place to get out of the city and contemplate their next move, to see if they liked life in the country, or simply to experience the grace of nature’s presence.
Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, massage, Bowen, energy work available. Great hiking and skiing nearby.
Living-style is see to your own needs eg make your own food and or take turns with dinner and clean out the tub when your done.
There is a washer and dryer and an even better clothes line.
Please no smoking inside, or pets. (email hidden)

  • This was a friendly, warm ,relaxing experience. Kim welcomes you into her home and carries on. She is relaxed, casual and cares for your every need. It was perfect for us as we had been travelling here and there for a week and this felt like home. Breakfast was delicious porridge, whole wheat toast and preserves. Just an awesome experience. I slept like a baby.

  • We had a wonderful relaxing time at Kim’s place. We appreciated her trust in us very much, letting us stay at her house while she was away and getting to know her budgie. The house is beautifully located, next to a lake and there is a Veranda where you can observe wildlife. The house itself is wonderfully decorated and has a calm atmosphere to it. The nice room we stayed in is overlooking the lake and the bed is very comfy. Sadly we didn’t meet Kim in person but we would love to stay at her place if we come back to this area again. Thank you, Kim!

  • Kim and her lovely home make you feel like you have been there and known her for ever! It is a great little hide-away with a lovely back-yard to read & relax. The house is full of lovely details and the breakfast "sessions" with Kim were very nice!! She is also very resourceful in tips of places to visit in the surrounding.
    Absolutely wonderful!!! Oh and her tea is delicious!

  • We stayed at Kim's home during a three week trip through the US and Canada. It was certainly one of the highlights of our tour. When we arrived, Kim was already expecting us. Kim is a very nice person, it was highly interesting to talk with her and she has put much effort in our well-being.
    The room we stayed in is nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and an astonishing view over the lake (actually a very slowly flowing river). There is also a birdhouse with cute and colorful birds gathering there.
    Kim gave us the opportunity to use her canoe to go up the river, which was a wonderful experience.
    Before we left, we took with us several packages of the great tea she produces.
    Of course, we recommend a stay with Kim.

  • My stay with Kim was one of my best experiences here in Canada so far. I felt so welcome right from the moment I stepped into her house. She really made me feel at home and comfortable. She even hiked with me so that I could see spots in the Algonquin N.P. I otherwise wouldn't have seen. Thank you so much for that, Kim. The bed was comfortable and the room was so quiet and I had a spectacular view of the riverside including the sun rise. I really enjoyed my stay there very much.

  • After a great time in the Algonquin park, we were on our way to Ottawa and found the little village where Kim lives following the river, so to say.
    Right away, we loved her old house next to the river.

    You enter through the kitchen and everything there send you good vibes.
    Kim is very welcoming and eager to meet new guests.
    She was lovely per email, and even more in real.
    We shared a fantastic breakfast with here, during which I could test my really first REAL Porridge :D and some of her own tea !
    It was delicious. The breakfast was even nicer as we had a great chat with Kim.

    Oh, and of course, everything in the house was very good: clean, warm, welcoming.
    We had a lovely night, and walk up with the song of birds. Lovely.

    I would come back anytime.
    Thank you for all Kim.

  • We stayed for two nights at Kim`s wonderful place on our trip from Manitoulin Island to Ottawa. It was a true delight to get to know Kim whose joy, humour and positiveness are contagious! We had very funny and natural conversations with her and enjoyed her uncomplicated contact. She shared lots of tips with us to access and visit the Algonquin Park and about the nature which is all around her beautiful house. It is situated directly on the River Bonnechere, a fabulous location, very peaceful, with lots of colourful birds, chipmunks and squirrels. We had a great time and would love to come back anytime, as we would be very pleased to host her at our place.

  • Kim was the perfect hostess, smiling, cheerful and very attentive to our needs. We loved the house, the old furniture full of history and the scenery very Zen, the garden of scents, the lapping of the nearby river and the magnificent view over the valley from the bedrooms. It emerges from the house of Kim calming atmosphere, serenity and beneficial energy. The house is ideally located to discover the eastern part of Algonquin provincial park, and Eganville is either a nice destination for Nature. A beautiful experience we are ready to renew as soon as possible! A big thank you!

  • We were just passin through Eganville so we needed a place to crash for the afternoon and Kim was a great host. The area is beautiful and Kim's place is a perfect spot right on the water and she's done a great job decorating the space. Loved our stay even though it was short.

About
I am the co-owner of the Algonquin Tea Company, a wild and organic herbal tea company, based in the Upper Ottawa Valley. Since 1995, I has been writing a monthly column called Sacred Journeys for Vitality Magazine in Toronto. In which I explore the profound meaningfulness of everyday life. I have also coordinated lecture series in healthy living in Toronto, and co-facilitated workshops in a variety of topics that explore self-discovery. More recently, I have become a certified Bowen practitioner and have been trained in Reiki, Reflexology and Therapeutic Touch. I received a masters from the University of Guelph studying anthropology and specifically the Collective Social Imagination. “I was born to a pair of explorers. They moved through poetry and stories like some move through religious text—inspired by the beauty and mystery of life. The stories and poems I was told were not religious ones, though many of the myths were instructional in a moral sense, exposing a deep psychological duality we all wrestle. It was the inspired vision of fellow humans that in turn, inspired me to be the best I could be, to reach out to nature as a sentient teacher and friend, to be respectful, loving and forgiving. So in this vast, barely explored multiverse, I was always drawn to views other than my own, as they increased the picture of the world I carried and made my life larger as a result.” —Kim “The Universe is made of stories, not atoms.” —Muriel Rukeyser
