This apartment was created as an artist studio in a funky and unique historical building. You’ll love the open, spacious feeling. The kitchenette and sitting areas in the photos are all private for guests. (We live in another part of the building.) You can swim in the Saugeen River in our backyard, cross country ski in the neighbouring park or enjoy our community tennis courts. A gas fireplace and Wifi make staying indoors fun, too.
