Barrett Place

Our Home

Ours is a comfortable apartment with splendid views overlooking a golf course and woods. We decorated with antique Quebec pine furniture.

It's a great base for exploring the region.

At about 1200 sf on the 9th floor, the apartment has a large living/dining area, a well-equipped kitchen and two bedrooms (one ensuite).

The old part of Kingston is especially attractive with a farmer's market, waterfront area, many historical buildings, two universities and a college.

More about the neighbourhood

In summer, the city has an excellent varied programme of activities and you will enjoy its many fine restaurants and pubs. A free ferry goes to Wolfe Island.

Kingston is midway between Toronto and Montreal and Ottawa with excellent highway, train and bus services. A local airport connects to Toronto (Pearson Airport). Train service connects to Montreal Airport (Dorval), and bus service to Toronto Airport (Pearson).

Recreational lakes, the Thousand Islands, provincial parks and forest, and New York State are within 30 to 60 minutes by car.

At one time Kingston was a French fort, then a British military and commercial centre. In the 1800's, it was fortified against possible American invasion (Fort Henry and 3 Martello towers), and the building of the Rideau Canal (a World Heritage Site).
