The guesthouse is a private oasis in the city. It's surrounded by 13 fruit trees and tall Chinese Mountain bamboo. It's a quick walk to Woodlawn Park, great coffee, a bakery, pizza, whiskey bar, award-winning brewery, seasonal farmers market, and minutes from the Alberta Arts District.

The airy, open floor plan filled with natural light is ground in mixed textiles and warm woods, making for a comfortable space. A cedar-surround outdoor shower lends a bit of magic to the steamy spa-like setting.
