From exposed beams, high ceilings, and the wood burning stove, this is a cozy haven to relax and retreat. The wood burning stove provides great ambiance of scent and warmth through the fall and winter. Tucked in the Locke neighbourhood, it is an area of young families and many dogs. A close two minute walk brings you to Locke Street - a quaint area full of bars, restaurants, and shopping.

The space
My home is special to me, it is my personal cozy haven. I've styled it with a cottage vibe in mind, especially complimentary to the beautiful wood detailing around the home. The original structure was built in the 1890s and renovated over the last decade. I am pleased to share my space and while it's small, the high ceilings make it feel quite open and spacious. It's my first home and very special to me so I ask you treat the space with respect and care.

It's a walkable downtown location to these popular areas:
1 minute walk to Locke Street shopping area
8 minute walk to Hess Village restaurants/bars/clubs
15 minute walk to First Ontario Center for major concerts
15 minute walk to Augusta bar strip
22 minute walk to James Street North shopping and art crawl area

Living room
I have a Chromecast attached to the television so you can cast any apps from your phone onto the screen for quick and easy viewing. There are candles around the home - please do not leave them unattended if you choose to light them.

Heating for winter
While the house is heated by wood burning stove in the winter, there's a bit of a learning curve to this. I'll have it started up for your arrival and will leave detailed instructions on how to keep the house warm for your stay. There is also an electric heater to keep the house warm if you'd rather not use the wood stove.

Air in the summer
There is a wall mounted AC unit in the living room which keeps that area quite cool, plus a window unit in the bedroom area upstairs. The wood burning stove creates a lot of heat and CANNOT be used during warm months.

As this is my home, the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need to get cooking. Feel free to use anything you wish. I just ask you wash your dishes and tidy up after use (feel free to leave dishes in the rack once they're washed). Please refrain from drinking the alcohol in the fridge or eating frozen foods you may find. Feel free to use the back deck for smoking or the patio set to enjoy a meal or drink. Please remove all garbage into the respective bins out front.

The claw foot tub is my favourite feature! Feel free to use anything provided in the bath cart! There will be bath products and toiletries provided. Please toss any used towels in the tub.

Feel free to use any empty hangers and space on the clothing rack. The skylight creates ambient light in the morning for a smooth wake up. Bring along an eye mask if you'd like to sleep in past sunrise!

\ \ \ House rules / / /

This is my first home and very special to me so I ask you treat the space with respect and care as if it's your own.

- NO smoking inside the house. You can do so outside in the front area or off the kitchen on the deck.

- NO parties! I'd ask you're honest with the amount of people staying over. Please be respectful of late night music and noise as it’s a family friendly neighbourhood.

- NO pets please!

- Please keep the house clean and any excessive mess must be tidied up. Keep the house as clean as it was when you entered for your stay. Let me know if anything breaks.

\ \ \ Check in and out / / /

- I am happy to accommodate special requests for check in and out times. This must be done when you book or a week prior to booking. Anything closer may not be able to be honoured as cleaning for your stay is prearranged.

\ \ \ Special events / / /

- I'm open to my home being used for photo shoots and special events etc. This must be disclosed prior to booking so I can accommodate any extras you may need.

Where you’ll be

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Locke Street has a great selection spots to check out. Some of my favourites include Brux House for a drink, Donut Monster for a doughnut or milkshake, Democracy for a latte and lunch.

Hess Village is about a seven minute walk away. It's the nightclub area with a few restaurants and bars. I highly recommend Amigos for amazing Mexican food and drinks. Arcade is a second floor bar filled with retro arcade games, and with food available below from Moody's.

HAAA Grounds is great for a picnic or walk through the playground. I'll often come here in the summer to relax and spend some time in fresh air.
