Suite #1, The Explorer, is a sunny and comfortable space in a historic building on the main street in Tamworth. A great place to write or create even in the winter. Bike or walk quiet country roads. Swim in nearby lakes. No car, no problem. We will shuttle you from Kingston bus or train station. Pick up the key at Bon Eco Design around the corner at 706 Addington St. unless alternate arrangements are made.

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. 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.

Interaction with guests

Our Bon Eco Design business and home is a block away. We will be available for advice on tourist information and for other needs that arise. Writing mentor available in town. Ask for details.

Other things to note

Living in a village in the country is the best of both worlds. Easy access to the wilderness with a lot less bugs. We are open during the winter. The best time to get creative work done.

Clean and nicely decorated apartment in quiet area, close (10 mins drive) to the Dark Sky viewing area. We also took a day trip to the Bon Echo Park further north. We enjoyed our stay, thank you Carolyn.

If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway for yourself or with your loved one this is the place for you. I was needing a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Toronto and this was exactly what I was craving. The apartment is very lovely inside (designer approved!) and had everything I needed during my stay. Carolyn and Hans are amazing hosts. Carolyn showed me around their studio Bon Eco design, which you should definitely check out. And also were more than happy tell me about the many beautiful hiking trails surrounding Temworth and even invited me to their bonfire party they were having. The bakery, cafe and cute little bookstore are all short walking distance away and their private property by the river is the perfect place to relax and read a book. I'll be sure to come back very soon!

This was a very cute apartment, within driving distance to many outdoorsy sites. Unfortunately our weekend up was rainy, but we still had a great time!

Tamworth is a lovely place, well situated for touring around Eastern Ontario. Carolyn's suite was nicely appointed with luxurious touches. She has created a fabulous space which allows for a comfortable place to read and write or a great place as a base for exploring the areas around Tamworth. We enjoyed visiting Bon Echo Park, Kingston, Prince Edward County and the surrounding area. I also enjoyed a day in Tamworth, reading and writing and hanging out in the local spots, including a fantastic book shop, and walking down to the spot by the river which guests can enjoy. We really enjoyed our time here. Thank you Carolyn and Hans for all your suggestions and for being gracious hosts. We hope to be back again.

This is a perfectly spotless, cozy place, with everything you'll need, furnished thoughtfully, simply, and beautifully. Beyond having all the right elements for a comfortable stay - if you believe in the energy of a place having an influence on how you feel - you'll be very happy here.

This was my second stay at this apartment. It's an excellent place for me to get some creative work done. Full of interesting and unique design pieces. It's also very well stocked with everything you need. Grocery and pharmacy nearby. You can go for walks in the country. Relax. Or check out the design shop and see what cool projects are on the go. Carolyn and Hans are excellent hosts!

We are travelers that have now chosen a place in the country to settle down and run our design business fabricating from recycling materials ( 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.
