About the Homestay
We live in a 25 year old home with rustic lime stone pillars. There are 2 large bedrooms for guests, 1 1/2 bathrooms, laundry facilities on the main floor, cathedral ceiling, a spacious open floor plan with living room, kitchen, dining and family room. The kitchen opens to a patio that is perfect for barbecues in the summer and the hot tub in the winter.
We have 3 young adult children. Our daughters, Alexis and Mackenzie, are newly married and our son, Chris, is living with us and attending university in Edmonton.
I love baking and cooking so you can enjoy some tasty treats from time to time! Our children are grown and we have no pets but plenty of hospitality to share with you!
We speak English in the home but Alan is also fluent in French. If you bring a vehicle, there is additional parking in front of the house.

About the Area
Our home is located East of Edmonton in a quiet and safe suburb called Sherwood Park. We are 19 km (25 minute drive) from Edmonton city centre and 42 km (35 minute drive) from the Edmonton International airport.
The bus stop is only a 2 minute walk from the house. This bus takes you to the main transit terminal where you have many bus options. The bus route to the University and downtown is approximately 45 minutes. A great opportunity to read, study or view the landscape.
