  Our home is a 3000 sq ft, well- appointed 1880 Gothic Victorian building in the city of Brantford, in Southwestern Ontario. It has been extensively modernised and updated, while maintaining its original character and features. It is furnished in antiques and period furniture. Thee are two bedrooms, both with ensuite baths. The garden is fenced with a fish pond, garden furniture and a gas BBQ.

Brantford is a small city with a population of about one hundred thousand, situated at a distance of 1 hr from Toronto International Aiport, 1 1/2 hrs from Niagara Falls, 1 1/2 hrs from Stratford, six hours from Ottawa, eight hrs from Montreal and ten hours from Quebec City. Buffalo is just 1 1/2 hrs away and New York City, too, is within a comfortable driving distance. Our neighbourhood is in the older residential section of the city. It was here in Brantford that Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call and the original Bell homestead can still be visited. Brantford is also a major aboriginal centre with an 18th century Mohawk Chapel and Six Nations Reserve a mere half hour away. The Reserve with its gift stores and annual Pow Wow offers a fascinating glimpse of the richness of aboriginal history and culture. Our home is about five minutes from an extensive trail system where deer and other wildlife can be often observed. Our two bicyles are provided. If you are a golfer, you will find numerous public courses in the region. There is good trout and bass fishing in the Grand River and in the many local lakes and rivers. Paris, Cambridge, London, Port Dover, Oakville, Woodstock, Hamilton, Kitchener and Waterloo are small historic towns and cities which can be visited within a short driving distance. If you are interested in live theatre, then Niagara on the Lake or Stratford invite you to come and sample their offerings in excellent Shaw and Shakespeare productions.

We are a retired professor and public servant, looking for an exchange for a period of 3-6 weeks in 2011. Tempt us with an interesting destination. We are adventurous.
