FLY THE COOP TO RUNAWAY ROOSTER!
When you really need to fly the coop, make your getaway to Runaway Rooster!
Located in the heart of charming Bloomfield, this private, four-season vacation oasis has everything you need to really escape the city barnyard.
White, bright and airy, the space is lovely and welcoming. Its vibe is stylishly eclectic, mashing together modern-casual with retro and boho-chic, and fun pops of colour, furnishings and accents.
It’s the perfect home base for experiencing the bounty of the County.
ESCAPE FOR A WEEKEND, WEEK OR LONGER.
Runaway Rooster is available any season for your getaway from it all – whether you just need to escape for a weekend, a week or longer. The freshly renovated guesthouse features an open-concept kitchen/living room area, separate bedroom, bathroom and even laundry facilities.
A large antique chandelier graces the main space, while four skylights fill it with beautiful natural light. There are loads of other ambient lighting options, too. The gas fireplace is fall-winter cozy. It’s also perfect for taking the chill off a cool spring-summer day or evening … or simply adding a romantic touch to anytime.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll LOVE the fabulous gourmet kitchen – perfect for preparing your farm-stand finds. It’s fully equipped with a new gas stove, microwave, spacious fridge and dishwasher. The plentiful cupboards and drawers house top-of-the-line pots, pans, dishware, cutlery, cooking utensils, spices and coffee filters.
Gather round the counter-top island for cocktails. Dine at the 1950s yellow-red Formica kitchen table. Or go al fresco on the backyard BBQ deck. In spring and early summer, lilac bushes wrap the deck in their intoxicating scent.
You’ll sleep soundly on queen-size mattress comfort in the bedroom – or the couch’s queen-size pull-out bed – enjoying the caress of quality linens and duvets. If you’ve got a larger group, there are additional fold-out mattresses that can sleep another two guests. There’s also plenty of closet space for all your gear.
The full bath/shower is spectacular! A skylight fills the room with natural brightness by day. At night, it becomes a window on the stars as you look up from a shower, or lean back in the deep tub for a luxurious soak.
Feel free to explore our property to its fullest. We’ve got a one acre lot that runs down to Bull’s Creek. Grab a chair, sit on the grass, or play badminton, croquet or bocce ball on the lawn. And, please ask if you can use the creek-side firepit as sometimes there are burn restrictions in effect.
WE’RE JUST NEXT DOOR
We live in the home adjacent to the guest house, so we’re available 24/7 to assist with anything, especially touring and dining recommendations.
Please check in at the main house first to grab the key.
We look forward to meeting you!
We love our neighbours, and ask that you respect their privacy and peace – please keep music and noise to a respectful level.
Guesthouse parking is on a shared driveway with our neighbour. Please align all vehicles (3 max) on the west side of the drive, to ensure our neighbours have full access to their parking. There’s extra parking at the main house, if needed.
Since this is our first season, there may still be some landscaping activity around the guesthouse.
EXPLORE THE COUNTY
It’s a lovely five to 10 minute stroll (1 km) along Main Street to Bloomfield’s shops, restaurants, artisan studios, spa, bike rental and more. Picton is a scant five minutes east by car, while Wellington is 10 minutes west. Sandbanks Provincial Park is a short 10-15 minute drive away.
You can drive, walk, cycle or take a cab/private chauffeur to experience all the wonders of the County. Or rent a boat/canoe/kayak/etc., and explore it from a whole different vantage point!
