"Jest-Arts" is a storefront studio in the wee town of Durham, ON. We sometimes host improv comedy workshops, or a book launch or a painting exhibition. The guest apartment is behind and has its own entrance from the back or front. The conservation park across the street has a beach for swimming in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Behind the building is a park by the Saugeen river and free parking.

Interaction with guests

We are usually around, we live upstairs in a separate apartment.

Other things to note

Food wise, there is a Chinese restaurant, pizza, fish and chips, a natural food cafe, a couple of good breakfast places and great local beer at The Garafraxa Cafe. Hours are limited, so we provide you a fully equipped kitchen so you can also make your own fabulous culinary creations.

This by far has been the most unique place we have booked. It has "eclectic" decor with high ceilings. It isn't for anyone who is looking for perfection but it is for those who enjoy the beauty in uniqueness. There are wooden steps that take you to the back lot and then in a few steps you have the beauty of a small wooded area and a river. There is also a public gazebo to enjoy just a few metres away. Jenny is a cheerful great host.

Jenny & Steve's place is such a cozy, eclectic and fun place to stay if you're in the Grey County area. Would definitely stay again if I was in the area.
