Interaction with Guests
I would be there when you arrive and when you leave.
I always leave water and cream in the refrigerator in your room. A coffee maker, coffee, sweetner/sugar , cupps are also in your room. All the bedrooms and four piece bathroom are located on the second floor.
First floor consists of the entrance, living area, 2 piece bathroom and kitchen. Sliding door leads you out to the deck and hot tub.
Living on the escarpment is very quiet and it's great to listen to the birds and the wind in the trees. 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 brings you to the 7th street entrance to the Bruce Trail of the Niagara Escarpement with miles of scenery and caves to explore.
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.
