The SpaceThis is a two bedroom home. Ours is in the east end of the home while the guest room is in the west end, overlooking the river.
The guest room has a queen size bed with an in room vanity and a separate 4 piece bathroom.
Let us know if you need sleeping arrangements for more than two and we can discuss the options.
A home cooked breakfast is included. The menu changes frequently but choices may include eggs, toast, muffins, sausage, bacon, whole grain porridge, yogurt, pancakes, with juice, tea, chai, coffee etc. Guest AccessWhen not in their bedroom, guests are welcome to relax in the living room, dining room, or kitchen.
Our outdoor areas are also available for guest use. Whether in a lounge chair on the patio or at the picnic table under the big pine, there's plenty of space to unwind.
We have a sauna house, and an outdoor fire pit, down by the river. With advance notice we can easily make either of these ready for guest use.
Our internet is received via a canopy service and unfortunately is not very stable. When it is working, guests are welcome to use the WIFI to check their email. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to take our lead from our guests. Our priority is that you find your stay comfortable and relaxing. The NeighborhoodOurs is a rural setting, on the Rainy River, approximately 7 kms west of the town of Stratton.
It's a great stop over spot for people travelling between Winnipeg, Manitoba and Thunder Bay, Ontario or for those with business or recreational interests in this corner of north western Ontario.
The number of fishing boats that we see anchored out front of our property is testament to the fact that the fishing is good here! Species include walleye, bass, pike, sturgeon. (Licences and bait available at outlets in Rainy River, Emo, or Fort Frances) Getting AroundThere is no public transport to Stratton therefore having your own vehicle is a must. Other Things to NoteWe have many modern conveniences (central vac, dishwasher, washer, dryer, Internet, etc). However, as we live off the grid, we are very conscious of how and when we use electricity. "Conservation" and "Make hay while the sun shines!" are two rules we live by in our solar powered home.
