The Glebe House is a lively open-minded family household located in the centre of Ottawa on unceded Algonquin territory. We love to welcome guests who have interesting tales to tell and hold politically progressive and eco-friendly values. We have a large rambling old house with all amenities and a large backyard where we try to grow organic vegetables, BBQ and hold music, poetry and fund-raising shows.
This room is on the third floor (quiet) and has a double size bed. It's next to the home-office space (you can use a desk) and the bed-room also has its own balcony. There is a bathroom on the third floor.
You can be private upstairs or you can join into the communal household ($12 extra per day per person for breakfast (incl. organic eggs, bottom-less cup of fair trade organic coffee/tea, lots of organic or local fresh fruit).
We are child friendly: there is a home-based daycare running on the ground floor Mon-Fri (8:00 - 5:30) and both my kids have their baby-sitting certificates. So in-house child-care can usually be pre-arranged. We can supply an extra mattress.
We are LGBT positive.
We are eco-friendly: we have a lot of organic and local food, we support use of renewable sources of energy (Bullfrog), we try to stay away from toxic cleaners & chemicals. We are currently unfortunately not pet friendly as a couple of us have allergies.
Our place would be ideal for people looking to build their network in Ottawa with various progressive communities. If you are coming to Ottawa to advocate or lobby for progressive change, you can also use the fully equipped home office space (3rd floor) and we are open to meetings and strategizing happening in the various common spaces of the house.
Neighbourhood & Location: We are located in the Glebe, which is a central, treed, urban, thriving neighbourhood. Two blocks from the house you can find coffee shops, restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, boutiques, post office, wine bar, whatever.
One block from bus routes 1 & 7. Five minutes bus ride or 20 minutes walk to Parliament. Best way to get around Ottawa is by bike -- loaner bike + lock is available.
We are 5 minutes walk away from the Greyhound Bus Terminal and 15-20 minutes drive from the airport. Pick-ups can be arranged.
Free parking can usually be arranged.
