Our pet friendly property, newly renovated in April 2021, is located in a quiet neighbourhood, only minutes walking distance from Lake Banook, downtown Dartmouth and the ferry to Downtown Halifax.

Popular ocean beaches are less than a 30-minute drive away.

The space
Our newly remodelled suite is great for couples, families and solo adventurers. It is in a renovated basement with its own entrance.

The suite includes a kitchenette with a small fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee percolator, slow cooker and hot plate with basic cookware, mugs, dishes and utensils.

The bathroom has a shower, vanity and a washer and dryer guests have exclusive use of during their stay.

We are a family of three living in the upper level. We also have a very friendly goldendoodle but he is never off leash when we have guests and unless you run into us as we head out for a walk you won't see him around the yard.

We are mindful of noise, however you will hear some general household activity.

There is plenty of free on street parking and parking in our driveway during the winter months if the parking ban is on or if you're uncomfortable parking on the road.

House rules: No smoking inside. no parties. Quiet hours are from 10pm to 7am.

During your stay

We respect our guest's privacy but are also very available if you have any questions or concerns during your stay.

Both Laura and I have grown up in and around Dartmouth and have lots of favourite coffee shops, restaurants, beaches, boutiques, cycling routes and hiking trails to share if you're looking for ideas.

Laura is the co-owner of The Practice Energy Movement Centre and active in the wider wellness community. I'm a long time surfer and used to be very active in sprint canoeing as well, so we have some specialized knowledge to share in those regards.
