THE EASTMAN WATERFRONT RETREAT ~ Our energy efficient home is perfect on a sunny summer day and just as ideal during a ferocious winter storm. Thanks to the comfort provided by radiant floor heating and state-of-the-art heat recovery ventilation system that provides a constant temperature and fresh air 24/7 throughout the year.

The EASTMAN WATERFRONT RETREAT has 3 bedrooms and will sleep up to 6 guests:
1 KING bed, and 2 QUEEN beds.

All our bedding is professionally laundered and pressed with layers of plush pillows and fluffy duvets. The Retreat has the luxury details that you desire for your getaway.
PRICING CAUTION ~ VRBO & HomeAway have been displaying all Canadian properties in USD. This is very confusing for all our Canadian Guests. Sorry, this is a VRBO decision that we are fighting to change. Help us by contacting VRBO customer service.
Meanwhile, scroll down to rates and adjust the currency window from USD to CAD. If uncertain please contact Jan for an accurate quote in Canadian dollars.
