Located in the charming neighbourhood of Elmwood, this spacious 1914 character home is filled with light + everything you need for an easy, comfortable stay.
Less than 10 minutes from downtown, the MTS Center, The Forks Market, The Human Rights Museum, The RBC Convention Center and the historic Exchange District. Easy access to everything Winnipeg has to offer without giving up a quiet night s sleep on a peaceful residential street.
Unlimited free parking, fully fenced yard, easy access to transit, airport to doorstep with one bus!
We are a 7 minute drive from Downtown and 5 minutes to a major shopping area and grocery stores. We are well serviced by transit with buses to downtown every 10 minutes.
Our home includes 3 sunny bedrooms (two queen beds and one twin) suitable for up to 5 people. The upstairs bed is tucked into a nook that gives the feeling of sleeping nestled in our 100 year old White Spruce tree. The space also includes a desk and wifi printer that guests are free to use.
The spacious living room offers a 4-person dining table and a TV hooked up to a Playstation that can be used to browse online, access your own Netflix account, or play our small library of games. We do not have cable access.
Our home is loaded with turn of the century character and we have decorated with an eclectic mix of recovered and restored furnishings. Our hope is that you find the space comfortable.
Our personal belongings are tucked away and anything left out is for the pleasure/use of guests! Please help yourself to anything in the kitchen, including coffee, condiments, tin foil, etc. We have left books, magazines, movies and games for you to enjoy.
We do ask that guests refrain from entering the basement and crawl spaces, as we use these spaces for storage.
Interaction with guests
This is our home that we rent out when we are away. You are unlikely to see us, but if you stay for more than 1 week, David's mother will stop by to water our plants and offer you fresh sheets (always with more than 48 hours notice).
We are always reachable to answer any questions you might have. It is our pleasure to make your stay in our home as comfortable and pleasant as possible! :)
