  • Description


    We are a young couple who have traveled to many different areas around the world. We love to have new experiences and meet interesting people. We have benefited greatly from people over the years opening their homes to us, and we want to be able to give back now that we have settled a bit. We have a young daughter, born mid 2021, and a very friendly labrador.

    Our home is in a quiet street in a subdivision in Orangeville, Ontario. We have a 1 acre property, very close to Island Lake Conservation Area. We are also close to downtown Orangeville (about 1.5 km).
    Orangeville is located 45 min drive North of Toronto. The surrounding area is filled with beautiful nature trails, hiking, and rivers. We are 1 hour south of Wasaga beach (the longest freshwater sand beach in the world), 2 hours south of Muskoka, 2 hours south east of Tobermory.

    A car would be handy to give you more freedom when you stay with us, but not necessary.

    At this time, we are not accepting stays longer than 2 weeks. Ideally we would like a 1-2 week stay.
