Relax in the evening in an 1870's oak-rimmed claw-foot bathtub — have you ever had a soak in such a vessel? We suspect it's a bit of a time machine that might leave you forgetting that such things as computers, cubicles or conundrums exist. Let the indisputable charisma of this elegant antique cottage enable you to forget about tomorrow and live in a simpler today.
All rooms are furnished with antiques and heirlooms from a bygone era. Original waxed and wonky wood floors whisper welcome to the slow pace of country life and their patina reminds us of everybody who has walked them before us.
Goats rescued from the dairy industry have tap-danced on the hardwood. Turkeys who escaped industry doom have warmed their persons on a human lap beside the fire. Chickens, freed from egg-farm cages have knocked on the door for snacks.
There is semi-private pantry kitchen area for you to prepare vegan meals for yourself too, for the meals we aren't preparing or sharing with you. You can eat in the dining room or parlour, on the veranda or picnic out in the yard. Since Yan and I live in a suite we built on the back of the house, we do sometimes go into the pantry kitchen to retrieve something from our supply of grains and herbs. It's super having our own suite because it gives everyone privacy--we are close enough should you need us but far enough to allow the space you might want. Come visit soon! Love, Sherry & Yan
