Beskrivelse af vores byttebolig

Our home is 2880 sq ft (268sq m) and situated on 40 acres (16 ha) of mostly forested land. The house is a modern, well maintained two story. There are several walking and ski trails behind the house as well as a variety of wildlife in our forest. We have the advantage of a quiet rural lifestyle but are in easy driving distance to Ottawa and Montreal. This affords us all the benefits and entertainment of the nation's capital and second largest city. (rail connections are within 20km and Toronto is a 4 hr trip). The village of Martintown is within 3km and the city of Cornwall 20km. With wooden decks on three sides of the house you can always find a spot in the sun or shade. The yard has fruit and shade trees as well as a number of flower beds and a garden area. With no urban light pollution you can see the stars while enjoying the hot tub or a moonlight swim in the heated pool. In the winter there is crosscountry and alpine skiing nearby. We are looking for an exchange which would accommodate four people in April 2019 ideally in northwestern Germany or possibly the Netherlands. As we have a second residence (cottage on Lac Indien in Quebec) we are open to our exchange partners coming anytime April through September.

Beskrivelse af omegn

Martintown is a friendly little village. KC's convenience store serves as a post office and liquor outlet. The Trading Post offers a selection of antiques, gifts and a small cafe while The Grand Hotel is a country chic resto/bar. The Martintown Grist Mill is open every Sunday in the summer and showcases local artists and a farmer's market. The Martintown Goodtimes host a variety of monthly events at the community center including yoga, contract bridge, bowling, excursions and breakfasts. It's a good way to meet members of the community. There are several golf courses within a short drive. Lancaster Perch is a local delicacy and a number of public parks and marinas are nearby. The Cooper's Marsh visitor area and boardwalks are one of the many trails available. Try the Summerstown Trails and Gray's Creek, or the extensive bike paths along the St. Lawrence. In Lancaster stop by Glengarry Cheese and enjoy several of their products which have won top international cheese prizes.

Hvad kan vi lide eller ikke lide. Her er vores ønsker og boligregler

We have a pet that is an outdoor cat and will need some care. We put him in the studio at sunset but he does not always come at that time and is quite capable of using one of his other shelters. We feed him in the morning when we let him out, and at night when we put him in.
