The water is from a well: high mineral content which runs clear but can leave mineral buildup on appliances and, in the summer, there can be a mineral smell which you may not be used to. It is completely safe to drink but you may want to buy bottled water if you do not like the taste of mineral water.
The stairs in the 20 foot ceiling living room are open concept; a baby gate is provided but please use caution with toddlers, the elderly or those with limited mobility (see photos).
There are fans in every room including ceiling fans in the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. There is a window AC unit in the upstairs master bedroom/ensuite.
You will have full access to the entire 1 acre property. Entry is by lockbox with a key for your convenience - no need to coordinate key exchange with the host.

The lock box with the key will allow you access and you will not see the owners, giving you a great degree of privacy and independence for the duration of your stay. You may meet Brian, who cuts the grass every week in the summer. We are readily available by phone and email as needed. *Please note there is no land-line at the schoolhouse so you will need a cell phone to make calls. There is free wi-fi - it's rural internet service so speeds my be slower than normal.

We are Canadians and huge fans of air bnb - we have stayed in some amazing homes all over the world. When travelling, the places we have enjoyed the most were rentals offering a mix of friendly assistance with respect for privacy, and accordingly this is the balance we strive to provide for our guests when we rent out our 1877 schoolhouse in rural Ontario.
