“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.”
“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”
“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.”
"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."
"Isabelle and Charles are outstanding hosts and this manor has a special and cozy atmosphere on five-star hotel level. Highly recommended!"
“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!”
