Lynn and I are very recently retired from business (John) and college counselling (Lynn).
Our hand built square log home is one of a kind and even has a real 17ft canoe mounted inside on the living room wall. The house was originally built as a bed and breakfast with 2 separate suites plus the main house. We are now retired and we would like to share our Coach House Loft Studio Apartment and also our Hillside Guest 2 bdrm Apartment with others. They are both private spaces with no living space above below or directly beside it.
We are located 3 minutes from Barrie on 30 acres of private trails and within 400 yds either direction from our driveway unlimited public trails.
Lynn and I love spending time on Georgian Bay on our Penetanguishene based boats ranging from a small Hobie Cat catamaran sailboat to a custom speedboat ( Tropical Punch Georgian Bay) to a 48 ft restored 42 yr old cruiser. When not on the water we spend time here in Midhurst enjoying the peace and quiet.
Our house was built without power tools and is unique with 5000 sq ft inside, 2400 sq ft outside decks, 6 garage bays and Lynn's herb garden.
We have almost a mile of geothermal pipe hidden underground down eleven drilled 180ft holes supplying our two geothermal heating and cooling systems.
As hosts I think we can give you privacy and be unseen yet available if needed. Using the new AitBnB 'events' offering which we think is a great idea we make make some boating options available soon
