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.

Great place and wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Allen and Mary Lynn's house for the week and it was like a home away from home. They made us feel very welcome and were extremely accommodating, answering questions and helping us with directions. The house is immaculate and very well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped for making meals and the beds were very comfortable. It is located on a quiet street, so it was very peaceful and we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces in both the front and backyard. Given the opportunity we would definitely come back and stay again! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for eight weeks while our home was under renovation. It was a great choice for our family. Everything we could need was provided, the apartment is well laid-out and felt huge and bright. Two car parking and proximity to the GO train was a bonus for getting around. The hosts were friendly and respectful. Georgetown is a wonderful town.

Georgetown Gem !

  • 5 of 5

This property was very safe and secure. It's on a quiet side street near the Go Train station - we were pleasantly surprised as there was no traffic noise - so very convenient. The landscaping was well done and the home had every convenience of home, except air conditioning. But as former Georgetown residents, we seem to recall heat and humidity is only problematic in August. Allen was very accommodating and helpful and greeted us upon our arrival. We highly recommend this property - with some mixed emotion as we definitely want to rebook it on our next trip and would like it to be available !

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us at Iris`s Place. Boy did we ever have the hottest summer on record. I think our portable air conditioner had a hard time keeping up. You are right, August is usually the most humid month of the year but this year was a bit different. We hope you will be able to book with us again if your dates are available. Repeat guests do not need a booking deposit if they email us directly prior to booking.

A beautifully landscaped and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Allen and Mary Lynn were gracious and friendly hosts who welcomed us and ensured our comfort. We appreciated their attention to detail. Their apartment is conveniently located for travelling around the Toronto area and Georgetown itself has everything. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this first class accommodation. Thank you Allen and Mary Lynn.

Absolutely loved this property. Every amenity you could want in a rental was readily available. Allan was out in the garden when we arrived and came around to introduce himself. Unfortunately, we triggered the smoke alarm one evening and Allan and Mary Lynn were very gracious. (Sorry again!) Close to the GO station, although we did not utilize. We took a walk one evening and found downtown Georgetown. We walked there almost every night to have ice cream at a local shop. And also to watch everyone chase Pokemon :). It was a much needed break from every day life in a very comfortable location. We will likely book this again!
