A cute little country home with lots of character set on one acre. This spacious property borders an 8km nature/cycling trail that connects to downtown Collingwood. This is the perfect place for a families or couples to enjoy a quiet getaway and reconnect.
A bright & sunny loft bedroom is located on the second floor. It features a queen sized bed, big windows, natural clay walls, bamboo/cork flooring, private balcony with a bistro set and an ensuite washroom with a clawfoot tub/shower.
The living room is a cozy space to curl up with a good book and a glass of wine by the fireplace (firewood is provided). There is a little library of books, board games, musical instruments and a small tv with Netflix/dvd player that you are welcome to use. The large couch converts to a queen sofa bed for additional guests.
The children's rooms are cozy and clutter-free. One has a comfortable single captains bed and the other has a wooden ikea crib. There is also a little playroom/parlor with plenty of toys for little ones, reading chairs and a craft table.
We are currently building a brand new kitchen and there are just a few more finishing touches to do (new patio door and cupboard doors to be installed) but it is clean and has everything you need including a vitamix, glass top electric stove, double sink, dishwasher, new fridge, dishware, toaster, tea kettle, coffee grinder & bodem. The mainfloor bathroom has been recently updated and has new soaker tub & rain shower. There is a BBQ on the wrap around porch, an outdoor firepit, organic gardens, hammocks, picnic sets, swing set, sand box and a large fenced yard.
During your stay you are welcome to make use of the fire place on the main level. You are welcome to peruse our bookshelves and our collection of magazines, board games and toys. The top drawers of the dressers will be empty and are for guest use. The sheds and cabin on the property are private and strictly off limits.
Interaction with guests
When you arrive you can expect to find a welcome note and a key waiting for you. We can be reached by cell/texting during your stay.
Other things to note
There is a private guest cabin located on the property directly behind the main house. You may notice an additional car come and go in the shared driveway. Please keep your car parked to the side so there is room for others to drive past. We are currently feeding a black barn cat named Mamacita. She is an outdoor cat and does not enter the main house. We also have backyard chickens :)
We welcome families but we do not accommodate pets. Check in time is 4pm (or any time after) and check out time is 11am on the day you leave. This is a 100% smoke free property. The shed, barn, and guest cabin are private/off limits. This home is for quiet retreats only. We ask that you leave the house a neat and tidy as you found it (wash all dishes, wipe counters, place used towels in tub). We absolutely love hosting 5 star guests :)
We are friendly & experienced hosts who love yoga and good food. We love small town/ country life and we can point you in the direction of our favourite hiking trails, local markets and other hidden local gems.
We look forward to hosting you!
