Runaway Rooster
Guest Cottage

Located in the heart of charming Bloomfield, our private, four-season vacation oasis has everything you need to escape the city barnyard – whether you just need to get away for a weekend, a week or longer.

White, bright and airy, the guest cottage (sleeps four) is lovely and welcoming. Its vibe is stylishly eclectic, mashing together modern-casual with retro and Boho-chic, and fun pops of colour, furnishings and accents.

Four skylights fill the open-concept living room/kitchen space with beautiful natural light. The gas fireplace is fall-winter cozy. It’s also perfect for taking the chill off a cool spring-summer day or evening … or simply adding a romantic touch.


If you’re a foodie, you’ll LOVE the gourmet kitchen – perfect for preparing your farm-stand finds. It’s fully equipped with a gas stove, microwave, spacious fridge, dishwasher and plenty of cookware and dishware. Gather round the counter-top island for cocktails. Dine at the 1950s yellow-red Formica kitchen table. Or go al fresco on the backyard BBQ deck.


You’ll sleep soundly on queen-size mattress comfort in the bedroom – or the couch’s queen-size pull-out bed.

The full bath/shower is spectacular! A skylight fills the room with natural brightness by day. At night, it becomes a window on the stars as you look up from a shower, or lean back in the deep tub for a luxurious soak.


Our property is yours to wander. We’ve got a one-acre lot that runs down to Bull’s Creek. Grab a chair, have a picnic, or play badminton, croquet and bocce ball on the lawn. Or enjoy a creekside bonfire. In spring and early summer, lilac bushes wrap the guest cottage deck in their intoxicating scent.


We live in the home adjacent to the guest cottage, so we’re available 24/7 to assist with anything, especially touring and dining recommendations.

Charming and delightful!

“Runaway Rooster and hosts, George and Karen, could not be more charming! Just delightful! This property was perfect for us – a couple from Toronto with a 12-year-old son. It is just as cute, clean, cozy and comfortable as it looks. Karen and George have attended to every detail – it is super well equipped with kitchen gear, comfy linens, games, Netflix, etc. Karen and George were so nice and easy to deal with. We took them up on their offer to play badminton in their backyard and joined their family for roasted marshmallows around the fire one night. We're looking forward to going back!”

A truly great experience!

“Beautiful cottage with everything you want or need! The cottage was beautiful, fully equipped and so spacious. The owners look after every detail and give you a truly great experience; they are so friendly and attentive! One of the best vacation rentals we've seen!”

Guest house is stunning!

“Hands down, the best Airbnb we have ever visited. Karen and George have created the perfect getaway home. This guest house is STUNNING, impeccably clean, and in a perfect location in the county. Not to mention the amazing extra touches in the home (thank you!), and the gracious hospitality offered by Karen and George. The home itself is stylish, beautifully decorated, and well stocked with everything you could need. We didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back as soon as we can.”
