The Index G bed and breakfast first opened as a small photography gallery in 2000 and then was converted into its present-day bed and breakfast form in 2006. Although there isn't much else to the bed and breakfast rooms upstairs and the gallery downstairs along with its concept store, it's all you really need to feel like you are right at the heart of the art action. 'Stay with art' as the Index G slogan goes, and indeed, how much closer can you get to art than here, where you check in and have breakfast right in the Index G Gallery?
Once you are in the small residential and very quiet Gladstone Street, the building is easy to miss - so keep your eyes peeled. From the exterior it looks like an art gallery and when it is closed, there doesn't seem to be any way of accessing the bed and breakfast; however, there is an intercom at the front door - this is where guests access the upper floor.
Even you don't stay at the Index G B&B, make sure you pop by to have a look around in the gallery, which presents quality shows all year round. The inventory includes artworks by local, Canadian and international artists. The art shop is also worth dropping by for, as it some fantastic ideas for presents to bring back, including original art, as well as other bits and bobs. Remember that the gallery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
