See Why We’re Rated 5 Stars!

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!

“One of our most unique experiences staying in an 1800s Manor felt like we travelled back in time. The house is located pretty close to Newboro lake and we were greeted by Charles who was extremely friendly and informative. The house was beautifully kept, and the room was extremely comfortable. In the morning we were served with some delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying here!”

“Thanks for warm and thoughtful reception & the delicate breakfast. Tastefully decorated, very clean, fully equipped, super quiet with only birds singing in the morning, acres of grass and forest, steps to the lake, the great place to touch the nature. While you can also enjoy the remains of history. Love to stay again and recommend to friends.”
