Testimonials
"Salah's home was even nicer than we expected. You could really fell the history in the old schoolhouse. Our room was spacious, comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and tailored to our own tastes and preferences. The house is a short walk to downtown Elora. We were easily able to walk to dinner both nights we stayed. Salah gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and sites we might be interested in, including where we could hike, one of our favourite pastimes. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the 1889 Schoolhouse to anyone."

Salah is a very welcoming host, telling us stories about himself and the house, which makes you feel part of the home and his way of living straight away. We enjoyed breakfast a lot, not only the taste, but also the easy-going and relaxing atmosphere. We'll charish Salah and our experience in Elora!”

“I expected that Salah would be a great host based on the reviews I read before my stay, but he really went above and beyond what one would imagine. His local tips and delicious breakfast were wonderful, but his welcoming personality and his memorable stories were what really stood out to me. Salah made our stay much more special than I ever could have asked and I would recommend Salah as a host to anyone! Thank you Salah for a trip and accommodations we will never forget!”
