The space
Please note: if you're over 5’ 10” in height, you may find a part of the private suite's entrance & shower ceiling height restrictive, but that is a very small part of the apt, most ceiling height accommodates folks up to 6’2”, & a shower stool is provided for tall folks.
I’ve had many very tall guests who are used to traveling & have no problem. The suite contains a fully appointed kitchen with full size fridge & stove, private en suite 4 pc bathroom, a queen size memory foam bed, table for 2, full size couch, flat screen satellite tv and electric fireplace. There is a private driveway on the south side of the house for guests along with private rear entrance to suite.
There is room inside in the laundry room for bike and kayak storage.
There is a No Frills grocery store and a Shoppers Drug Mart directly across the street, and downtown is less than a 5 minute walk with lots of shopping, restaurant/pub opportunities. Check out the Bancroft Village Playhouse online for theatre, concerts & Toronto Int'l Film Fest films. Downtown in the front yard, nature in the back yard! Canoe, kayak and paddle boat rentals available in season across the river in Riverside Park. Guided river trips, canoe, kayak and bike rentals available through "Trips & Trails" in Bancroft. Non- motorized trails nearby for hiking including Bancroft Eagles Nest Park with Hawk Watch viewing platform (check out website), biking, snowshoeing, motorized trail for ATVs and snow machines right across the river.

I've spent my working life as a Producer/Director at CTV News in Toronto & as a Municipal Government CAO in RuraI Eastern Ontario. I now enjoy a more relaxed career as an AirBnB Host, artist, gardener & cook. I love to travel and meet people, but also to chill in my beautiful gardens on the York River in Bancroft and invite my guests into a secure and private rental space that is "country- industrial"; it is not luxury accommodation but the apt. within my home is very comfortable and cozy. Best suited to people who are used to travelling and do not expect hotel perfection. My hosting style is very low key and I respect people's privacy. Life motto: Enjoy the journey!
