Holiday Rental House
This lovely restored century home located on 2 acres of land is one of two houses or identical twins which was largely rebuilt in 1999. Originally constructed about 1871, this home was primarily for the hired hands on the farm. The farm has long ceased to exist and this home as been entirely a rental for all but a few short weeks of its long life. The house is in a rural location but yet only about 10 minutes from the Burlington waterfront and the old core. Many points on the deck, property or through windows have a view of Lake Ontario or Hamilton Harbour. Even the industrial section of Hamilton is lit up at night and provides an interesting view. You will enjoy all the serenity of the outdoors and yet only need to travel 5 minutes to a large grocery store and theaters.

You will enjoy all the serenity of the outdoors and yet only need to travel 5 minutes to a large grocery store and theaters. The house is also located just a 5 minute drive from the GO station and is a very short Uber or taxi ride to the property. The home sits on 2 cares of land and has 2 houses which are all short term rentals which makes it ideal for large families We are beside the Bruce Trail and a 40 minute walk or 3 minute drive to a very nice waterfall you can stand on top of or walk behind. If you are interested in walking we also are located beside a landlocked piece of conservation land with a few kilometres of trails which are essentially private. We often walk the trails and never see a soul. This is a bargin for what is offered.More

Interaction with guests
I'm an avid hiker and kayaker. I can point you in the right direction to get to the best places easiest and also do hike or kayak with my guests. I have three kayaks and these are available to borrow free of charge as long as I'm available.
