There are also several local yoga studios in the area. There is a quaint, lovely, cafe nearby and several wonderful restaurants as well as a great diner modeled after the 50's within walking distance.

Maureen was very kind and flexible to happily accept us even at a late arrival hour. The house is lovely, always a joy to stay here and always a regret that we didn't stay long enough!
this family is really nice and the house is beautiful. We really enjoy the days at their home.
We had a fine experience at Tony and Maureen's. They were very accommodating to our arrival time. We were not given a key so we had to rely on their and our schedules but that wasn't an issue because someone was always at home. The room was as advertised. The bathroom on the third floor where we stayed was spacious but we had a problem with running out of hot water for the shower. Besides that minor issue, we don't have any complaints. The neighborhood was nice and safe. We didn't have that much communication with Maureen or Tony during our stay but they seemed like a nice couple! We also really took a liking to their Bengal cat, Jai. :)
Our stay with Tony and Maureen was great. We had a last minute trip and they were very quick to respond. Their place was a wonderful home to stay in and a very short walk to the train.
Tony et son épouse sont 2 hôtes charmants, disponibles, patients, et discrets
Notre séjour dans leur grande et belle maison a été très agréable et nous laisse un excellent souvenir
