“Wonderful place to relax in peace and quiet. The house is beautiful, bed was very comfortable, and delicious continental breakfast. We enjoyed our quick escape from the city to recharge and would love to return”

"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."

“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!”
