"This is the sort of place that you only want to tell your closest friends about, to keep it all to yourself. It's the perfect cottage alternative if you want more space and don't care as much about being right on the water. It's huge, beautiful, and clean, with amazing spaces both outdoor and in. We were a party of 10 with 4 kids, and there was more than enough room for all, with lots of private spaces where you could get away from the crowd."

“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.”

"Like a great restaurant you really just want to keep to yourself but can't. Amazing B&B by the Rideau Canal. Old stone manor with super owners and top notch breakfast."

"My husband and I just stayed at Daffodil Acres and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It's evident that the hosts truly enjoy sharing their beautiful home with their guests. They really are amazing hosts. Every detail has been thought of and their level of cleanliness is top notch. I would definitely recommend this place to others."
