“Amazing house and hospitality. Yes, it really is a Manor. Even better than the house is the extraordinary welcome and care from the hosts. Wonderful people, running their manor in grand style.”

"What a gorgeous treasure! I loved staying here and of all the B&B I've stayed in, this was my absolute favourite! The house is gorgeous, spotless, and every detail to ensure your comfort has been thought of. There is a serenity and joy in the house that is hard to describe. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

We rented the full manor and could not have been happier with the property and the hosts. They were more than accommodating, even helping to arrange docking for our seadoos. The neighbourhood is wonderful and the house beautifully furnished with all the necessary amenities. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation!
