New twin bed in spotless Alcove with high speed wifi in recently renovated home. A dedicated on site manager maintains extremely high standards of cleanliness, and facilitates a safe, respectful atmosphere. Guests are kind, courteous, and strictly follow safety protocols. Total guest # is kept low to ensure ease in social distancing. Located in the Junction Neighbourhood, a close walk to local parks, river trails, & downtown Guelph, this space is a great fit for professionals and grad students.

The space
We have created opportunities to explore co-living for long and short term stays at a range of nightly rates. There is a weekly potluck on Wednesday nights in the summer months, paired with a community shared agriculture food pick-up for Zocalo CSA members. These potlucks are an open space for community collisions, connection, working group meetings, music, movie screenings and other wonderful things. In the communal backyard space, we have laying hens, decks for gathering, a pizza oven, play areas, a zip-line, a slack line, lots of space to sit and relax in a hammock, and plans to install a yurt for workshops and events.

Location

Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Our neighbourhood is a thriving intentional community of young professionals, entrepreneurs, and families with kids of varied ages. We are a natural hub where people from the neighbourhood gather to chat, play, share food and ideas. There is a local small craft brew-pub, Fixed Gear Brewing, around the corner, and Abe Erb has opened a few blocks away, a casual, family friendly brew pub with good food and great beer.

We are Mike and Mary-Kate. We care about creating an amazing, supportive community of people around us, local food, sustainable living, environmental design, and having a whole bunch of fun. We live in downtown Guelph, Ontario and are at the beginning stages of transforming our house and yard into an urban farm. We have three kids, Rowan (12), Sikhona (9), and River (8), 2 border collies (Dash & Sophie), 2 ferrets (Bingo & Buddy), and a corn snake (Tiny). We have started the processing of transitioning our property to a "post peak oil" way of being. We have renovated our old stone house and have roughed in solar panels, solar hot water, and grey water. We are excited to try to determine how to grow and produce as much food as possible from our incredible property right in downtown Guelph. We have creative ideas, and are loving every moment of living in possibility. We own a 6-plex apartment building across the road from our house, and we’ve just acquired the house next door. Our aim is to create spaces to host interesting, creative, inspired people who we will share our lives with. Around us, several friends have purchased houses and a community with intention has started to emerge as we are able to garden together, share child care, and help each other in a number of ways. We have also converted the next door house into a co-living space to meet mixed needs by hosting volunteers, short and long term guests. We have enjoyed a steady stream of really awesome travellers who have joined us over the past few years to help us in a number of ways, and become part of the community.
