People often comment that this home feels like being in the woods or on the coast and yet we are centrally located in a heritage neighborhood close to downtown, Foothills Hospital, river paths, University of Calgary and SAIT.
This artist's home is full of original paintings, sculpture and plants that contribute to a feeling of peace and comfort. Your space is equipped with several small luxuries that will help you feel like you're on a special holiday. You are also welcome to enjoy the public spaces in my home, both indoor and out.
Although there is a comfortable space set aside for your personal use, you can also feel free to relax in the main floor spaces including the garden rooms. The deck dining area is a great place for your morning coffee or evening wine. The fireplace in the living room is a great place to cozy up on a cooler day. Good quality tea and coffee are provided in your private space as well as granola and fruit.
Laundry facilities are available from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, often appreciated is you've been travelling awhile. You can also borrow an iron if needed.
Laundry facilities and a more extensive breakfast or evening meal are available by arrangement, donations for groceries appreciated.
Interaction with guests
I would be most happy to chat with you upon arrival and at other times throughout your stay to help with anything that you might need. As well, free to email questions before or during your stay.... I can connect you with many kinds of resources and would love to help you enjoy our neighborhood and city.
I am also very open to your cues that interactions aren't needed and peace and quiet is high value.
Other things to note
Parking is onstreet but special arrangements can be made for stays longer than a couple of days.
I look forward to you enjoying the space and treating it with the care you would your own home. I have an elderly cat but she is not allowed into your space in case of allergies or preferences. Our home can't accommodate other pets. We also don't smoke in any part of the house although the patio chairs are a comfortable smoking venue with butts going into the metal firepot.
