General overview

Conveniently situated between Toronto and Niagara Falls so lots to do within less than an hour's drive of many scenic and tourist locations. Beautiful small town surrounded by trees. Enclosed on one side by our Niagara Escarpment a world biosphere reserve and by Lake Ontario on the other. Our street ends at the Bruce Trail which is part of the Niagara Escarpment and has great hiking trails. We are a five minute walk away from a massive park with a baseball and soccer field. Our town is surrounded by numerous wineries which are becoming quite famous and offer great dining options. We are 30 minutes from Lake Erie, a small town beach area and 1 hour from Port Dover, another beautiful small town beach area. Niagara Falls, a world class destination is 30 minutes away and can be reached by train or car. https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/illumination/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/our-neighbourhoods/clifton-hill/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/play/falls-experiences/journey-behind-the-falls/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/play/attractions/butterfly-conservatory/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/play/outdoor-recreation/niagara-parks-botanical-gardens/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/niagara-region/niagara-on-the-lake/ https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/play/theatre-shows/shaw-festival/

There is also a half bath on the main level. Living room, dining room, library and TV room are all on the main level.

Neighbourhood

The motto in our small town is, “Friendly by Nature” and it is apt. Great road biking options on our escarpment and also mountain biking trails a 15 min drive away. Cross country ski and snowshoe trails are available in the winter. Hiking trails are numerous and vary in intensity. We are a 45 min drive away from downtown Toronto (with no traffic) and there is also the option of taking the train or bus into Toronto. Both train and bus have stops in our town. Niagara Falls is 30 minutes away by car. There is also Niagara on the Lake which is a great area to explore with even more wineries, the Shaw Theatre and an historic famous battleground. We have numerous “beach” areas within walking distance of our home with access to Lake Ontario. Not your typical beach with sand but small rocks and small access points. Great for a stroll by the water or a quick dip. Don't forget to check out the Painted Ladies when you come. It's a neighbourhood in Grimsby known for its beautifully, colourful painted homes. Situated down by our lake so you can take a stroll along our lakefront at the same time. A 5 min drive from our home. We also have numerous access points to The Bruce Trail which is a beautiful forested area with markings so you can stay on the trail. There is a gelato ice cream shop a 10 minute walk from our home (I'm all about ice cream!) and numerous home decor shops in our downtown.

Getting to my home

Fly into Toronto Pearson Airport or Hamilton Airport. Both are international airports. Best option is to rent a car. Other option is to take train or bus to our town. The train station is a 10 minute walk from our home. The bus is a 10 min car ride from our home. If we're here, we can also possibly arrange to pick you up from the airport. Or there are also Ubers, Taxis and shuttles. Take the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) towards Niagara. We can provide detailed directions if required. Our home is located a 3 minute drive from the main highway although you'd never know it as you can't hear any highway traffic from our house.

Nearest airport

Toronto Pearson International airport is 45 min drive away from our home. John C Munro Hamilton International Airport is a 40 min drive away with less traffic than Toronto’s airport.

Getting around

5 min walk into our small downtown with cute shops, home decor store, pharmacy and grocery store. Walk a bit further past the downtown to another higher quality grocery store, hardware store, pet shop and numerous fast food restaurants. Downtown has many good eat in restaurants and cafes and coffee shops. We have both road and mountain bikes available for use and many of the roads in our town and surrounding have bike lanes. For exploring other areas around us, there are numerous options including train, GO transit, bus, taxis and ubers. There is also a car rental agency (Enterprise) located in our town.

Cindy

Hello. My husband Pete and I have travelled extensively but we’re new to home exchanging. We are non smokers, always respectable of others homes and love to meet new people. We both work from home and are self employed so are very flexible with travel dates. We’re spontaneous so are willing to exchange with little notice. We are an active couple that enjoys being outdoors. Hiking, biking, skiing and scuba diving are some of our interests. We respect the environment and will take whatever steps necessary to offer our support (eg recycling, organics bin etc). We love animals and would love to mind any pets that come with the places we stay.
