    Hello! My name is Mike and I bought a place in Lion's Head last October. I've never done anything like this before so my brother came to help me get it up and running. It's a half acre in a small village, Lion's Head, and was built in 1883. There's 6 bedrooms and there's one for someone who wants to come along for the adventure. We're doing some renovation but it's been easy to get distracted when there's so many gorgeous trails to explore!

    You'll get the most out of this stay if you love the outdoors. We're in a small town on a small peninsula. The closest chain restaurant is a 30 min drive away. The infrastructure for tourism is in its infancy and it still has the small town magic. One hour walk from the front door and you're at the Lion's Head Lookout which people drive hours for just to get a photo. A five minute walk gets you to the beach.
    I spent some time living in Brazil a couple years ago, so I have a basic understanding of Portuguese if that helps.

    The most important things are helping out with cleaning and yard work. We're using a good portion of the half acre for gardens, but it is our first gardening attempt so feel free to teach us a few things. If you want to work on renos, awesome. We'll pay for that, but it's not obligatory. The two adorable cats are always craving attention and people's laps to sit on, so a cat lover is a plus.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Modest bedroom with a bed and the basics. Roughly 10' x 10'. There is a shared bathroom on the main floor. We share a decent sized kitchen but it's everyone for themselves for food. We do love to share for the occasional feast.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    All the hikes! You'll never get bored with all the options. 5 minute walk to the beach on Georgian Bay and 10 min drive to Lake Huron,

    Tobermory is 30 minutes up the road and it has some of the best scuba diving you can ask for. Crystal clear waters and lots of sunken ships.

    Space for parking camper vans

    It's a half acre! Not the most space in the world but a camper vans have more than enough space. Lion's Head is a Dark Sky Community so you will love all the stars you see, especially after spending an evening around the campfire
