Interaction with guests
We are happy to chat, give you ideas of what to see but also leave you to your privacy.
Other things to note
We have a cat named Gulliver and he traveled from Montreal with our daughter when she finished college there. He's very shy and hides when new people come to the house. We realize that some people are allergic to cats. We don't let him into the guest room but if you're really allergic this may not be a place for you.
We know that some travellers come to our area without a car. We are happy to pick you up from the metro station (5 minute drive) when you first get here. If we can we'll drive you there too. We can offer 2 bicycles and helmets if you wish to ride to the metro and leave them there locked. You can also leave your car in the metro garage and take the train. It's much easier than taking the car downtown.
