Enjoy a relaxed and comfortable stay in an historic century home in rural Ontario. Only 45 minutes from Toronto's Pearson International Airport. Convenient stopover en route to Algonquin Park and other northern destinations.
I have recently started hosting weekend textile workshops. Please enquire if you are interested in learning a new skill such as weaving or felting.

The space
The house was built circa 1870, and has been carefully updated to add comfort while maintaining the original character.
I am very pleased that my house has been listed on the Municipal Registry of Heritage Properties as a "building which has demonstrated heritage value and conveys a sense of the past that defines the municipality's local character."

Guest access
The Blue Room has a queen bed and two windows, south-facing and east-facing. If you need another room, please check Around the World, Green Room, for another guest room with a double bed. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2159235
Guests share access to two washrooms-one with an old-fashioned tub, and the other with a modern shower. Relax in the living room, dining area, or while overlooking the gardens from the back deck or front verandah.

Other things to note
Guests have a choice of tasty and nutritious breakfasts. Local foods are used whenever possible, such as honey, maple syrup, eggs, fruit and vegetables (Bradford is Ontario's vegetable producing centre). Bread is homemade, with flours ground at Beeton's k2 mills. I make my own preserves, such as jam and apple butter.
I am continually trying to minimize my carbon footprint through re-using, recycling and composting. Laundry is usually hung in the fresh air to dry. If you would like to use your own sleeping bag or towels, you will receive a $5 credit.
I have an English language book exchange -trade in your book for another.
I have art and handicrafts for sale around the house. This includes my own textile work as well as items from Guatemala. The sale of Guatemalan items helps to support educational programs in Guatemala.

Location

Bradford West Gwillimbury, Ontario, Canada

My home is in the tiny hamlet of Newton Robinson, which was a bustling community in the mid-1800's. There are still a number of beautifully maintained century homes from that period. History buffs may enjoy visiting local historic sites.

Lovely country walks or bike rides can be enjoyed right outside the door. On a typical walk, I have seen hawks, herons, ducks, deer, racoons, muskrat, beaver, coyotes, skunks, and of course horses. A magical time is in the late spring when the nearby valley is twinkling with fireflies. Chipmunks, squirrels and a variety of birds are regular visitors in the garden.

Visit El Lugar Con Pottery for Mexican Imports and delicious home baking.
Antique hunters will enjoy the proximity to Cookstown's Antique Cupboard, and Innisfil's 400 Antique Market.
The Cookstown Tangers Outlet Mall is also only a ten minute drive.

I am thoroughly enjoying retirement, after a 30 year career teaching elementary school. Now I have lots of time to travel, and do the things I love such as hiking, weaving, felting and learning new skills such as Spanish and playing Celtic harp! I am particularly enjoying being a B&B host. It is a perfect fit for me. *Please enquire about my weekend textile workshops. Learn a new skill, such as weaving or felting.
