The space

Bon Eco Suites is a collection of clean apartments located in the historic village of Tamworth, Ontario. Each apartment is fully furnished in the unique style of Bon Eco Design and has everything you need for your escape into rural Eastern Ontario including sheets, towels and kitchen ware.
Suite 1, The Explorer, is second floor access overlooking Tamworth main street. Quaint and sunny. Free parking on the street or in the parking lot behind. Please do not block front business. No phone, no TV, no distractions. Comes with portable speakers for phone or computer. Don't forget your charger.

You have quick access to the Canadian Shield wilderness within minutes from your door. Bike scenic paved country roads for short or very long trips. Become rejuvenated with a hike, picnic or swim in the rolling landscape of granite, evergreens and water. If you need to get work done, Bon Eco Suites is a perfect getaway to focus on research, be creative or to reflect. The Bon Eco Design studio/workshop close by has space available to rent by the day or week.

Tamworth is a diverse community of residents living a life reminiscent of simpler times. Enjoy quiet solitude or join in the social activities. The village has many necessities. A bank (CIBC), grocery store, LCBO (beer and liquor), pharmacy, several restaurants, massage therapist, video store, dog hotel, garage and gas station.

Conveniently located in the Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa triangle. There is no public transit but Hans or Carolyn are available to pick you up and deliver you from bus or train station in Kingston or Napanee for a nominal fee.

Guest access

Visit our secluded property on the Salmon River for guests only. It is a short walk away from the suites. A great place to sit in a Muskoka chair and unwind by the lazy river.

Other things to note

Really cool place with lots of character and charm. Kitchen is really well stocked (finally a place with whiskey glasses and a french press). It's full of inspirational design pieces, and is in an ideal location for a nice little retreat. Highly recommended!

Tamworth is a quaint little town. Awesome café nearby with real pea-meal bacon and potatoes... to die for.

Perfect location for some time away from the city. We really enjoyed the dark sky viewing area as we never get to see the starts with minimal light pollution as we did here. Thanks Carolyn!

We are travelers that have now chosen a place in the country to settle down and run our design business fabricating from recycling materials ((URL HIDDEN) Tamworth is a small community in between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. We call it the middle of everywhere which suits our personalities. We love to create designs and live close to major cities but closer to the Canadian wilderness where we find our source of inspiration.
