About CAROL THOMPSON
We have called many places home, including Budapest, Hungary but have simply fallen in love with the charming village of Elora. My husband, Gabor and I moved to Elora four years ago and wonder why we did not move sooner. We love feeling like we are at the "cottage" in our serene riverside property yet being just steps away from the vibrancy of downtown Elora. We are both retired and live an active lifestyle that includes walking, kayaking, photography, travelling, gardening and gliding. Gabor being a former Boeing Captain now instructs at a local gliding club and I having had 35 years managing my own rental business. Collectively we have much experience in the service industry and are now delighted to be able to dedicate time to giving our guests a unique and wonderful get-away. We are onsite but very discreet so should you need us for any questions or concerns about the guest suite or local area recommendations, we are available to answer your texts or calls. We love meeting and hosting travelers from all over the world and especially guests that honeymoon in our suite.
CAROL THOMPSON purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why CAROL THOMPSON chose Elora
We were planning to purchase a cottage up north as a second home and never anticipated moving to Elora, however a real estate ad with a picture of the grand stone steps leading to the back gardens along with the unique nautical stairway leading down to the fire pit and the riverside area immediately caught our attention. We quickly booked our appointment for a showing. Upon arrival, we were shown the back gardens and the decision was made with a look and nod between the two of us-we had fallen in love with the property and knew we had to have it all before going inside the house. We purchased within a few minutes and spent the next year designing, gutting and renovating the entire space, making it our own. The result is that our riverside property exceeds the expectations of most discerning of travelers and having travelled throughout the world we have created a retreat that meets our standards of hosting. Our Romantic Riverside Guest Suite is beautifully decorated, immaculate and supplied with everything you could possibly need and more. The furnishings and décor are tasteful and modern, only to be outdone by the incredible garden and river view. From this delightful spot you can easily walk to the many things that Elora has to offer. There is a wide variety of shops and restaurants all accessed within a five minute walk. Just like the apartment there is everything you could possibly need or want. Also there is a picturesque easy walking trail that takes you through a park and across the bridges. Elora always has a lot of interesting events happening.
What makes this Apartment unique
The beautiful view from the guest suite which is located right on the banks of the Grand River through to the natural cedar trees and lovely shade gardens. In addition we have a unique, nautical stairway that takes you down to the river side to watch the swans swimming by or the plentiful ducks that arrive for a landing on the river. The seasonal fire pit attracts the outdoor types and provides an evening of entertainment down by the riverside whether it be roasting hotdogs, marshmallows or steak. Our summer season for fire pit usage begins May 1-October 31. The spectacular sunsets captured our hearts and we decided to create a dream property for ourselves and our guests. Our Romantic Riverside Guest Suite is available for the discerning visitors who appreciate these unique features. We think you will fall in love with our little piece of paradise and hope you will return often.
