Where you’ll be

Huntsville, Ontario, Canada

Three blocks East and down the hill, our local high school is located across from the Muskoka River which winds through town. A small beach and picnic area are located nearby at the river mouth meeting Fairy Lake. Lions Lookout, which is a wonderful vantage point for viewing all of Huntsville and surrounding lakes and hills, is also close by—spectacular vistas any season!

I'm thrilled to have signed up with Airbnb to aid local folks with their experiences and stories of the communities I wish to travel through and to.
I'm a singer/songwriter, and I've taught music in public, and Montessori schools.
I love to travel (so far...all across Canada, parts of the US, Cuba, Northern & Central Europe, Japan, Australia's east coast, Santorini); much of that's been done out of a backpack, sleeping in a tent, homestays, hostels, communities, the band's tour bus, motels, & five-star hotels.
I love music (influencing my own music include--Jane Siberry, Kate Bush, Emily Haines, Imogen Heap, Lucinda Williams, EmmyLou Harris, Bruce Cockburn, Sufjan Stevens, Sarah Spring). I love to read fiction, poetry, history books, good stories, take in a flick, hike through the bush (preferably in snow), make & share a meal and drink with friends and family. I am improving my French.
I'm a good mother.

During your stay

We are a busy family, in and out of our home and the yard during most days. Happy to answer any questions you may have via text, or in person if you see us in the yard. Our 4+year old will introduce herself if she sees you--she is an extrovert--and our dog, Sirius, will also want to fetch anything you throw for him.
