This historic house was built in 1897 and its character has been preserved. Located on a quiet, treed street in Ottawa's Golden Triangle, you are close to the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
1) NO PARTIES, NO FAMILY GATHERINGS, NO EVENTS - SERIOUSLY, DO NOT BREAK THIS RULE!
Parties, family gatherings, and events are not permitted. Any unauthorized party, family gathering, or event will be subject to a $2,000 fine, which will be taken from your damage deposit. In addition, we will register a complaint to Airbnb. We open up our home for accommodation only, and never for gatherings. We ask that you respect our rules. Failure to do so will result in us asking you to leave our home immediately. If you're even thinking about having your daughter's wedding rehearsal party in our home, please go to another listing.
2) PROVIDE YOUR GOVERNMENT ID UPON ARRIVAL
We ask that you present your government picture ID upon arrival for us to photograph.
3) NAMES OF ALL GUESTS MUST BE PROVIDED - NO OTHER PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN THE HOUSE
Only the guests specified when you make your reservation are allowed to be in the house. We require their names 2 weeks before occupancy.
4) NO CANDLES
No fire or candles are permitted in our heritage home.
5) DO NOT REMOVE ANYTHING FROM THE HOUSE
6) LEAVE THE HOUSE CLEAN
The cleaning fee is intended for the preparation of your arrival - not to clean up after you. We ask that you leave the house in the same condition as when you arrive. If it is not left in the same condition as when you arrived, we reserve the right to retain part of your security deposit.
The condition of using the Internet is that you may not download or stream content.
Laundry is allowed at a rate of 2 loads per week, and can only be done after 7 pm on weekdays and any time on weekends and holidays. Soap is not provided.
9) DAMAGE AND BREAKAGES
We ask that any damages and breakage be dealt with on the honour system, and that you notify us as soon as the damage is done. Please leave broken, damaged, stained or torn items on the kitchen island.
