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!
"The house is incredibly beautiful, and really lovely hosts, everything was great, breakfast was delicious too, wished we could have stayed longer!"
“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.”
