  • Description


    Nestled beside the Sifton Bog in London Ontario, our location features a vernal pond, lots of deer in the yard, rare birds and plants with hours of wooded hiking trails. We are also walking distance to Starbucks, gourmet shopping etc. I am a senior but very active.

    I take care of Adam a 36 year old developmentally delayed but very loving gentleman who gets along with others well and is fun to be around.

    We also have an 3 year old dog who loves attention but mostly just sleeps! . We like to eat well, take a cooking class each Thursday, a concert on Friday but mostly enjoy learning about other cultures.

There are two shopping areas within walking distance with most amenities. Boler Mountain the southern most ski hill in Canada is a few minutes away by car. Use of a bike and/or skis comes with the room as well as all meals. There is also a covered 4 season gas Barbeque.

    Our 70 yr old and much beloved tree died in the front yard which we hope to honour by making into live edge counter tops for the kitchen and bathroom. The planks have cured for 4 years and are ready to go. We need the help of an expert with this project as well as yard work for Spring..
