Simcoe Pines - Feels Like Home Away From Home!
Back for our third year at Simcoe Pines, as soon as we opened the door last weekend it felt like coming home! The only difference is that this is the post-Thanksgiving getaway of four couples who love to visit the wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake and prefer the atmosphere of this beautiful home to hotel rooms. The openness of the kitchen, dining room and living room makes socializing relaxed and easy. Arriving Friday afternoon, the men tee'd off at nearby Whirlpool while the ladies explored the shops of downtown. Returning "home", we each bring out the appetizers we've prepared for our Friday evening "reunion" and sit around that great country table to catch up. On Saturday morning, we enjoy a continental breakfast and head out to tour the wineries. After a full day of exploring, we do a little taste-testing of our purchases and then fire up the BBQ for a great evening meal. Although I'm sure there are plenty of fine restaurants nearby, this weekend at Simcoe Pines is about being together, in this wonderful house, not just eating, drinking and telling stories but preparing our food together and really enjoying the special aura this house creates.
What amazes me each year is the feel that the owners just went out the back door as we came in the front. Pictures on the wall, old 78's in the record player and cosy linens on the beds. It really has a feel unlike any place we've vacationed.
My husband and I so look forward to this annual excursion. Although we've talked about trying somewhere new, Simcoe Pines calls us back year after year and we've already reserved again for 2013. We would highly recommend this property to couples or families who are looking for the warm atmosphere that only your home, or Simcoe Pines, can give.
Thanks for another great weekend Angelo! Until next year, cheers!
