About this listing
In our sunny character home, on a quiet tree-lined street in Fernwood – a neighbourhood beloved for its art, creative energy and embracing spirit. It’s like living in a giant hug. When you want some bustle, it’s a 20 min walk to our vibrant Downtown.
Peaceful country feel, next to Downtown. Bright and airy, and surrounded by green. You'll hear the backyard hens clucking while having breakfast on your private patio. Comfortable with soft spaces to flop. Beautiful four-poster double bed (dimensions: 54"x 74"), lots of storage and fully equipped kitchen. Includes all you'll need for your stay. Also television, laundry and great reads. Our home is a scent-free environment, with hepa air filtration system. The sweet suite is self-contained, with private entrance. Everyone welcome!
Feel free to wander. There are chickens to visit in the backyard, and lots of veggies (in season) to harvest for your dinner. We also have a lovely space for all in the front yard, with a neighbourhood library, and places to rest.
Interaction with guests
We'll be here to welcome you, or if needed, we can make arrangements for you to check yourself in. We're as available as you want us to be. We work from home, are often in the garden, walking the neighbourhood, or swinging on the boulevard swing.
If you want to stay in the neighbourhood, wander across the high school green space to Fernwood Village to buy fresh local produce at Aubergine and have an organic latte at Cornerstone Cafe. Book at the day spa, yoga or art class and pick up your tickets for a performance at the Belfry Theatre. Purchase momentos for family and friends at the artist-run gift store or give yourself a gift and get a tattoo. Have dinner at any of the fabulous eateries – Fernwood Inn for local brews, Ca Va Bistro Moderne for fine dining, Stage for tapas. Our neighbourhood is known both as Funky Fernwood and Friendly Fernwood. Both are true!
