I'm a self employed Information Technology Consultant, and as such, most of my work is Toronto Ontario. I also build custom homes on the side for fun and profit.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

I bought and built this property because I eventually want to retire there. The location is ideal, because I'm so close to Toronto, yet so 'far away' - if you know what I mean. However, it seems I'm still very active in business and a long way from retirement at this point. And therefore I spend most of my time in Toronto. So I rent this property out for extra income when I'm not there.

This property has the ability to instantly relax you and your loved ones upon arrival. That's why I gave it the tag line 'Time To Exhale'. There is something about its seclusion and tranquility that elicits an automatic relaxation response. Many of my guests, including a Holy Lady from India, have remarked on this unique characteristic.

Hello Michael, the week-end was great, it is a beautiful spot. The weather could not have been nicer.

Thank you for the rental and I think all the girls would like to go back again next year.

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful retreat - what a gorgeous property, spacious and comfortable. We loved: the sunset, the view, the trampoline, the Russell Peters DVD, the kayak, the campfire, the kitchen, the relaxing atmosphere. We look forward to coming back again next year for our annual Labour Day gathering. And thanks for the wine!

From Trinidad, from South Africa, from Michigan and from Canada ... to the shores of the Buckhorn. Sunsets, loons, fishing, trampoline, family, and did I say fishing. An environment of peace and relaxation for us to come to experience. Great place and complete relaxation.

Thank you.
