About this listing
This spacious bedroom in a large character home is located in a lovely neighbourhood close to the city center. It comfortably fits two guests, with TV and WIFI in the room. Enjoy breakfast on us, and use of the kitchen; very close access to transit.
This is one of our main AirBnB rooms, on the third floor of the house. It has a queen bed, desk, TV, and recliner chair.
This lovely character home is located in central Wolseley - a fantastic Winnipeg neighbourhood known for its lovely turn-of-the-century houses, great pedestrian vibe, and many neighbourhood shops, bakeries, and restaurants. It's a 5 minute walk from Portage Avenue, which has many main bus routes, and is only about a 10 minute drive from the airport (25 minute bus ride).
This house itself is a 2 1/2 story, 2600 sq ft. house, with three private bedrooms, a 1/2 bathroom on the first floor, and a full bathroom on the second floor (shared). There is no bathroom on the third floor.
In the morning, all the fixings for 'continental' breakfast are provided, so you can start your explorations of Winnipeg on a full stomach!
As fellow travelers, we know what it's like to be away from home, and we try to make our home comfortable and welcoming for guests while they're here.
Please note that we have a small dog named Babby. He is never in the guest rooms, but he is in the shared spaces when we are home. He sheds minimally, as he is really small.
The main floor has the following shared rooms: a spacious kitchen that guests are welcome to use, a sunny dining room, a bathroom, a living room, and a large deck. The second floor has a shared den, sun room (perfect on summer evenings), and shared full bathroom.
There are typically two rooms being used for AirBnB guests. Both rooms are very spacious. One room has a queen bed, a twin bed, a desk and a dresser. The second has a queen bed, a desk, a TV, and a recliner. These rooms are both on the third floor of the house. If needed, a third room on the second floor may be used. This room has a queen bed, a desk, and a dresser. This house also has wireless internet and laundry facilities.
Interaction with Guests
Guests have full use of the house while we are away at work. In the evenings, we may be at home, and happy to help and answer questions. Usually we're quite busy, so we're not around the house a lot.

Public transit options are located within a 5-minute walk of the house. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) "Navigo Winnipeg Transit" for an excellent website on plotting public transit routes in Winnipeg. We can help guests as needed with this as well!
This is a non-smoking house; if a guest is a smoker, I'd ask that they smoke outside. This is a neat house, so if you're staying for multiple nights, please keep shared spaces tidy. Thanks!
