A quiet oasis among forest and meadows, close to beaches, museums, great hiking and canoeing in summer, along with fabulous cross country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. A spacious home with kitchen, dining room and living room. Lots of outdoor space for you to use, including two porches off the dining room and living room. Plus 1 shared porch (with us), equipped with two large tables, benches and two bbqs (one gas and one charcoal). Urban amenities and services are close by in Owen Sound.

The space
Persephone Market Garden is a working farm on a 100 acre property with mostly nature and meadows. We have a 1.5 acre market garden (fresh vegetables available for purchase in season please inquire when booking), a flock of sheep and chickens. There are hiking trails through the forest and meadows.

There are two houses on our property, the AirBnB uses one entire house that is separate and independent from ours. Yet, houses are connected by a roofed porch - excellent for summer BBQs and w have had social outdoor bonfires even during COVID.

We recently increased the nr of guests to a max of 8, based on frequent requests to accommodate two more people. One of the rooms is partly open to the stairs and two matrices are directly on the floor; please be aware that it does not offer full privacy.
