In the spring-time it is a good idea to bring water proof boots for trails; also during the summer guests may need sun-screen or mosquito spray at certain times of the day; in the winter time, bring appropriate cold weather outdoor clothing for any desired outdoor activities.
Check in is anytime, check out is 11 am. No pets are not allowed because we already have pets. We are an empty nester mature couple with a creative flair. YOU MAY SMOKE OUTDOORS ON OUR DECK.
John and I are in our mid fifties, and empty nesters. We raised three sons and currently have four young grandsons. But all our kids live in other provinces. We are self employed with a large shop on our yard for John's aircraft and wood working businesses. I am a Worship Artist; I write songs, record songs, paint instruments, and had a sacred dance company for ten years. We are Mennonites by culture. I have a large garden and love to cook ethnic dishes from around the world. I serve them in our lovely sun-room during the summer. We have two gentle Arab geldings for riding and I also have a small home based spa business called, Sweet Spirit Spa so I can provide a variety of services. Our basement suite has a fully equipped exercise room which our guests can enjoy. There are hiking trails in behind our property for summer walking and winter cross country skiing. There is a gentle creek and bush with about 2 miles of trails bordering our three acre country home. We live in a crescent of 10 such lots. We are six miles south of a small city called, Morden, which is famous for its "Corn & Apple Festival" in August. Guests should have their own car but we can also provide some basic transportation. I have many instruments which I am willing to share. We have internet service, Netflix movies, a large collection of DVD's and VHS as well. I also collect LP's and have a large collection of wonderful vintage music in the basement free to enjoy. I have a good sized library of varied books. I love houseplants and have beautiful greenery upstairs which creates fresh air year round. Our home is passive solar so all our windows are south facing to the beautiful view of the rolling Pembina Hills. Meals can be provided for a very reasonable fee. There is a large back yard fire pit area with a lovely Apple orchard and grape vines. Our entire property is fenced with farm fencing so you can see the countryside but still have privacy. The stars are bright at night because there are no street lights here. We have a telescope for further star gazing enjoyment. My wolf-dog Wolfgang is 12 years old and very loving and he sometimes lends a beautiful howl to a moonlight sky. Come and enjoy our peaceful country home at Tinker Creek, Manitoba, Canada.
