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)
Enjoy yourself! There is a bird on the first floor who is not in a cage, but does not fly onto heads etc... she is independent, but we do ask that you not keep the doors left open. We are by a river and have a well system (water is great!), so ask you not dump chemical down the toilet. Now back to the number one rule... enjoy yourself ;D
Super location. A very cozy home and a incredibly flexible host. My bed was so comfortable. Thank you for your kindness Kim.
Everything was good: the bed, the shower, the breakfast. We enjoyed our stay. Kim was a great host.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Alll is good! We had an excellent stay at Kim's house mear the river with interesting talks. A little bit hippie. We learned about health teas. The breakfast was marvelous. Vielen Dank! Peter und Regina from Germany
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!
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
