About Allen and Mary Lynn,

My late wife (Iris) and I purchased this nice duplex back in 2001. The lower apartment was renovated in 2011 to make it into a vacation destination. Iris passed away in 2012 and I have dedicated the apartment to her, Iris's place. I opened the vacation home in Dec.2012.

In 2014, I remarried, and since then, Mary Lynn and I have enjoyed meeting many guests from around the world. We both hope to see you soon.

What makes this house unique

The views from each window and the walkways, all overlook the award winning gardens. Our home has been 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. This is a very quiet neighborhood and is within walking distance to the train and the old part of town.

Perfect Accommodation for downtown Georgetown

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, and well laid out. Very tastefully decorated. The attention to detail in the kitchen, and organization of the cupboards and drawers was second to none. The apartment feels like home from home. Allen and Mary Lynn were very welcoming.

Thank you both!!

Fabulous place.

  • 5 of 5

Would totally suggest this as a home away from home short term stay for anyone. My small dog Holly and I had so much space and were so comfortable here, we could live in this 5 star rental. Perfect for a family, a small group, and pet friendly set up. Gorgeous grounds, safe and lovely location, tastefully decorated. Best vacation rental I have stayed in. Amenities were first class. My hOsts, Allen and Mary Lynn were more than welcoming and very easy to deal with. Fully recommend to anyone who wants to stay in southern Ontario.

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Iris's Place in Georgetown. The house was spacious and well equipped. Beautiful gardens surround the home that comes complete with a backyard secret garden. It was a great location for a fall week of golfing and exploring Halton Hills

Just where we needed...

  • 5 of 5

First time to Canada for our family of five. After looking at many, and I mean many places to stay, we found Iris's Place. Seeing the pictures is exactly what you get! Very clean, all amenities we needed, the cutest little town within walking distance, and the owners son met us at our arrival and was available at all times with any questions we had. Great hospitality! We highly recommend this "home away" as it felt like to us for our stay.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property and the owners are wonderful! The property is immaculately clean, with all the amenities you need and then some. They even have coffee and tea there for your first morning when you are tired from traveling. Plus, they are a wealth of knowledge about the area with things to do and places to see. Allen and Mary Lynn are very helpful and available if you have any questions or concerns. The area is very quiet and safe. We felt completely at home there. The front porch and back garden area are lovely places to sit and relax. Everything was perfect! Thank you for a lovely stay!
