The Space

The room has east and south facing windows with views of the lush side yard and front garden. A queen size bed is tucked between 2 large windows. The room also has an antique sewing-table desk with chair, two custom nook closets, a refinished antique dresser, reading lamp, mirror and its own thermostat controlled heat. It shares a full bathroom across the hall and another full bathroom is available on the floor above.

Guest Access

You are welcome to enjoy the common areas of the house including the fully equipped kitchen with storage space available in the refrigerator and shelves--though most guests prefer taking advantage of the delicious food in the neighborhood. A comfortable, covered front porch with a couch and a large, covered, bamboo-wrapped back porch keep the sun and rain at bay. The house also has a dining room with large bay windows and a warm, inviting living room with a wood-burning pellet stove that runs during the heating season.

As a guest you have private storage areas in the kitchen, refrigerator space, use of French-press, coffee maker, or espresso machine (we like coffee here). Also included are the use of the washer and dryer. We have a cleaner who keeps the kitchen, bathrooms, and floors, nice and tidy. The rooms and entire house have free high-speed, wireless internet, as well as a wired connection option in the living room.

Interaction with Guests

The house is usually comprised of a mix of short and long-term stay guests. I live in one of the rooms, though I am occasionally away traveling or on rock climbing trips. There are usually good opportunities to interact with other guests in the common areas of the house, but it also easy to find privacy. I've had some wonderful people stay here over the years and look forward to meeting many more.

The Neighborhood

The house is located in the heart of the vibrant Alberta district. Starting 3 blocks away, there are great restaurants (including Podnah's Pit, 2011 restaurant of the year), coffee houses (like Random Order named one of America's Best Pie Spots by Food&Wine), brew pubs, shopping and entertainment.

Getting Around

When you need to get downtown, it's only a 15min bike ride to the city center. Frequent-service bus lines (#6,#8,#72,#15) and a Zipcar station are 4 blocks away.The WalkScore rating for this house is described as a Walker's Paradise.

Other Things to Note

House bicycle is available to rent for $10 a day.
Cute dog available for walks, $1 a day--catches frisbees for free.
