About Allen

My late wife and I purchased this nice duplex back in 2001. We have lived upstairs since 2006. The lower apartment was renovated to make it into a vacation destination. My wife passed away in 2012 and I have dedicated the apartment to her, Iris's place. In 2014, I remarried, and since then, Mary Lynn and I have enjoyed meeting many guests from around the world. Hope to see you soon.

Allen purchased this house in 2001

Why Allen chose Halton Hills

This home was diamond in the rough. After 2 years of renos, it is now a great place to live.

What makes this house unique

The views from each window and the walkways, all overlook the award winning gardens. Our home is on the garden tour also. Enjoy sitting on the Muskoka chairs while having an afternoon tea or your morning breakfast. There is a small backyard garden and patio for your own use.

Just a little beyond outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
We kept saying to each other, "This is the best idea we have ever had." What a luxury to come to your resort each night to relax and rejuvenate, followed by a fabulous night's sleep. The beds were extremely comfortable.(I was surprised at how hard my own bed was today. Who knew?) Your home is perfect in every way. Well equipped, great lay-out, beautiful gardens, decorated beautifully, ( gave me ideas for our new home!)
It was a wonderful refuge for Rob when needing to take care of his injured finger and the soaker tub sure helped me after lifting all those boxes. I could go on, but most importantly, we have told so many people that you had better brace yourself for the many bookings coming your way. My only complaint is, I didn't get to spend anytime with you as we had to combine our holiday at Iris' Place with the task at hand. When we are settled, we can wander on by and feel free to bike over to 2 Chipper!Thanks again for all the comforts of home!

Owner's Response: Hi Rob and Norma,
It was a pleasure having you stay in our guest apartment, or as you guys called it "resort". Moving out of your house and into a new one all in one day can be very stressful and I am glad you stayed with us for a week during this move to make it easier. Looking forward to visiting you in your new home.

What a great home and location!!

  • 5 of 5
Well what a find! We so enjoyed our stay at Iris's Place, immaculate, well laid out and spacious. Good off road parking & well kept and relaxing gardens, lots of interesting wild life.
We would definitely come back and would recommend it to our friends and family.
We were over from the UK to meet our new grandson who lives in Milton a short drive away, so it was an ideal location.
The Go Train/Bus station was a short walk away, so ideal for family to go into Toronto. Niagara was a must visit too and very much worth the drive.
Alan and his wife were very accommodating & the neighbours were very welcoming.
Local supermarket/stores are just a short drive away, where you could get practically everything you need for a self contained visit.
Highly recommend it.

great place the second time around

  • 5 of 5
After finding our house we stayed here again waiting for the closing date of our new home. A great place to sit back and relax with a glass of wine. We enjoyed many golf courses within 45 minutes from the house. We love the new colour on the house it really fits with the vacation home concept. Thanks for everything and hopefully our paths will cross again.

Perfectly presented

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely spacious ground floor apartment in a lovely traditional house in a quiet established neighbourhood. The accommodation is extremely well kept and very spacious and everything we could possibly think of (and more!) was provided. Allen and Mary Lynn were friendly helpful hosts. It is a good base for touring the area and we particularly enjoyed trips into downtown Toronto (about an hour in a car - traffic dependent) and to St Jacobs Market in the opposite direction. It was really nice to have plenty of space to relax in after a day out. The gardens were lovely and I can see why they have won awards - really nice to have our own area to sit or eat in. There are plenty of supermarkets and take-aways within a 5 minute drive. It is one of the best maintained holiday accommodation we have stayed in in any country. We would recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable base in the greater Toronto area

Absolutely beautiful spacious and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5
This suite had everything our family needed for our stay. It was very spacious and beautifully appointed. We loved that the sleeping area was separate from the living area. We loved the garden oasis in and around the yard and enjoyed sitting out to have my breakfasts in the morning. We would most definitely book this unit again when we are back next year and would highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting to explore the Toronto area and wants to have a peaceful retreat oasis to come back to after your busy days. That is what holidays should be about! Thank you Allen and Mary Lynn. You are wonderful hosts and you have an absolutely beautiful home! Thank you for sharing it with us!
Thank you,
Nancy, Don, Leanne and Tori from Victoria, BC

We stayed here for one month while looking for a place to live in georgetown. The house is tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the lovely gardens in bloom. We are looking forward to coming back soon.
