Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
An intimate, self-contained getaway with corner windows framing stunning forest and golf course views. Heated floors and a steam shower increase the sense of luxury. The studio overlooks Painted Turtle Lake, named after the little turtles who sun themselves on our docks in the summer. Guests are welcome to share our beach, fire pit and docks as the season permits. We welcome and affirm all guests.

The space
The studio is on the main floor of a two-storey guesthouse with a separate apartment above, nestled near our home in 5 acres of aspen woods. We keep the space spotlessly clean & sanitized, uncomplicated & cozy; a space for you to breathe and relax. We’re happy to answer any pre-booking inquiries you might have, just send Lisa a message!

The kitchen is supplied with complementary local fair trade coffee from Negash Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cooking oil and salt & pepper. Guests can cook their own meals or order from area restaurants (see our online Guidebook connected to our Airbnb listing for options). We supply a laptop-friendly workspace with a cell booster, business-class wifi and a task light. Ample parking space is available. Guests use their own private entry secured with a keypad lock.

Our steam shower has a tall step up to the shower base so we supply a step-stool for those who need. Please check out our Accessibility profile or drop us an inquiry if you have any accessibility-related questions.

Painted Turtle Lake is 2 acres in size and nearly 30 feet deep, fed by a network of underground streams. Our acreage has private access to the beach and lake (shared between guests, host family, and upstairs tenants), as the entire west shore sits against our yard while the opposite shore borders Quarry Oaks Golf Course. In summer guests can sunbathe, canoe, swim or bring your tackle to fish for jackfish in Painted Turtle Lake. In winter, bring snowshoes or cross-country skis to enjoy spending time on the golf course grounds (please follow the instructions listed in our House Manual to use their property with respect).

The upstairs tenants are quiet and keep reasonable hours; the occasional sound is their dog trotting around upstairs, but he does not bark and goes to bed on his humans’ schedule. We also have a large, friendly dog named Toffee. We keep her on our side of the yard away from the guesthouse so guests can choose whether they would like to meet her or not. Details are sent to guests upon booking; most guests love Toffee but we are also set up for folks who prefer to keep their distance.

Where you’ll be

Giroux, Manitoba, Canada

With 4 golf courses, an archery range, Sandilands Provincial Forest and the city of Steinbach nearby, there is always somewhere to explore. Steinbach is less than 15 minutes away by car; it has ample options for groceries, shopping and restaurants. Be mindful that some retail stores in Steinbach may be closed on Sundays. Labroquerie has a lovely, accessible walking path about 10 minutes away, and Sandilands Forest offers a large network of trails only 20 minutes from Painted Turtle Lake. During the golfing off-season we are also permitted to enjoy walking our neighbouring Quarry Oaks Golf Course (some restrictions apply). Check out our online Guidebook connected to our Airbnb listing for a wide range of possible activities!

I am a lover of my family, dogs, all things nature, learning anything new, and the beautiful chaos of true community! I grew up between the Steinbach area and the savanna of Burkina Faso, West Africa. I spent 10 years in the hospitality industry while pursuing my post-secondary education. I am a proud West Central Winnipeg alumni, having rooted in community there as a peacebuilder over the following 12 years. I developed Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in 2019 and have been living my best chronically ill life on our little acreage ever since. We are so grateful to live in our own quiet forest paradise and we love to share it with our guests.
