We wish to welcome you to our home in lovely, charming Ancaster, Ontario, Canada. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, we are walking distance to The Hamilton Golf and Country Club, weekly farmers market, the Old Village of Ancaster, spa, library, Old Town Hall, boutiques, cafes, historical restaurants and a family ice cream shop, just to mention a few spots for your enjoyment. The Hamilton Golf and Country Club has hosted the Canadian Open four times, including the 2006 event where Jim Furyk won his first of two consecutive Canadian Open victories. The Canadian Open is here, July 23rd-July 29th, 2012!
Amenities such as Cineplex, supermarkets, bookstores, etc. are also very close by. We often walked it.
By car we are about 50 minutes to Toronto, historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, or Niagara Falls; Buffalo NY is just over an hour’s drive away. The world-renowned Stratford Shakespearean Festival is 90 minutes from here. We suggest you take the back roads from our home via wine country through quaint little towns, where you’ll discover fruit/veggie stands, award-winning wineries and antique shops! Our neighbourhood is very close to the Niagara Escarpment (a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve), Dundas Valley Conservation Area and The Bruce Trail. Our city boasts over 100 waterfalls, several of which are minutes from our house with easy access and parking. Dozens of other adventures in nearby communities are within an hour’s drive.
We offer a private, cozy bedroom with a double bed, comfortably furnished, along with your own washroom and shower. Watch TV in your own downstairs living area or in your bedroom. Our front yard has a shady, tree-canopied private sitting area; the rear deck is also a great place to relax. We have a great many birds and small wildlife, such as rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks.
Free wireless Internet is available – reception is excellent throughout the house. However, we recommend you bring your own laptop.
We are happy to provide breakfast if your schedule permits.
Our home is a pet free/smoke free home and is also a “no shoe” zone. Bring your slippers or favorite socks and we will make you feel right at home.
We are a friendly, professional, early-retired couple with a wide variety of interests that include travel and meeting new friends!
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
