“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”
"Absolutely charming! Beautiful accommodations with every detail covered exquisitely! Friendly and warm hosts! Highly recommend and we'll definitely return."
An absolutely over the top beautiful large historic home, pristinely decorated in a quiet yet expansive country setting. A peaceful place to get away and where we were able to truly relax. Isabelle & Charles as hosts just added that much more to the experience by their attentiveness to every detail and friendly and warm conversation. An absolute must to visit. Definitely the top of the list of places to stay for us.
“Isabelle and Charles are incredible hosts. The history and architecture of their home is amazing. This quaint home has so much unique and original woodwork with modern comforts. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms so inviting.”
“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.”
“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!”
