The Space

This quaint and quiet home is nestled on the edge of the Niagara escarpment and Rutas amazing sculpture garden. The Blue Mountains are 45 minutes away for downhill skiing and snowboarding although a few steps from your door you will find the entrance to the Bruce Trail and miles of hiking, biking and cross country skiing. After a day of sightseeing or enjoying the areas natural beauty and countless attractions return to the pleasant atmosphere of Ruta's home and top it off with a dip in the hot tub and a glass of wine or two. She has a firepit in the yard that is stocked with wood if you desire that camping feeling or rent the 28 ft trailer on her property .

The Neighborhood

Living on the escarpment is very quiet and it's great to listen to the birds and the wind in the trees and melodious chimes. It is rare to hear any traffic as it is a very small street and not used except by the residents living on it. A 10 minute walk down the hill will bring you right downtown and all the amenities you can imagine. 100 feet from the property is the 7th street west entrance to the Bruce Trail of the Niagara Escarpement with miles of scenery and caves to explore.

Getting Around

Taxi ride downtown will cost you about 8 dollars one way...public transit is available during the week just around the corner at hour intervals.

We have upgraded the bed to a queen size too :)
