This is visit exceeded my expectations in terms of beauty and comfort. It had everything I needed and more. I used this as a restoration break for rest, peace and isolation, all my needs were met!

If you want a getaway where you don't drive anywhere this is the place to go! The hospitality was outstanding and felt the love and care that goes into the premises!

I really enjoy being alone and this was the perfect spot to put my feet up, relax, take walks, meditate, practice yoga and prepare my own food with ease and enjoy a beautiful bathroom with peaceful sleeps and early mornings!

Superb. 5 out of 5

The family environment with plenty to do - something to appeal to everyone. Loads of fresh air, and plenty of sight-seeing out in nature...rolling hills, farmlands, little pieces of serenity in the middle of our province; arts and crafts and home made goodies...was just great to unwind and relax and just enjoy the beauty of nature.
