Vårt hem

Beskrivning av hemmet vi erbjuda att byta bort

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.

Våra tips om platser att gå och saker att göra när du bor i vårt hem

Glengarry County is a unique area that celebrates its rich Celtic heritage through numerous festivals, vents, halls of fame and landmarks. Ontario's first settlement and Canada's first county, Glengarry is located between the Ottawa and St Lawrence Rivers and borders New York State. (NY City is 636 km southeast) Pride in Aboriginal, Scottish and French Canadian roots is highlighted in a wide range of festivities. The Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville is one of the largest Gathering of the Clans in the world. The Williamstown Fair is the oldest continuous country fair in the country. Enjoy the many parks, get in touch with nature at a conservation area or saunter along a recreational trail. Take in the Glengarry Pioneer Museum in Dunvegan ora the Nor'Westers & Loyalist Museum in Williamstown. Visit McMaze. A short drive east of Cornwall is Upper Canada Village, rated one of the top ten attractions in Canada. Check www.southglengarry.com and www.northglengarry.ca

Våra preferenser

Vad vi gillar, vad vi inte gillar ... Här är våra preferenser och husregler.

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.
