About George Knowles
A professional couple with two children in university.
George Knowles purchased this Farmhouse in 2006
Why George Knowles chose Grey Highlands
We grew up skiing in winters in the area, but discovered it's fantastic in spring, summer and fall too. Hiking, road biking, riding, fishing, golf or whatever activities you are into. This farm itself has it all - trails in the woods for hiking, fields for views, a freshwater stream, a fully restored historic farmhouse that pre-dates Canada's confederation. And a giant barn for ping pong, badminton, basketball, working out, or just hanging out.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
With trails on 100 acres through the woods and along the fencerows between the fields, you can hike, mountain bike, cross country ski or snowshoe without ever leaving the property. In summer we love to eat all our meals on the screened porch overlooking the pool, or relax by the pool with a cold drink. In winter we have lots of guests for dinner in the large farmhouse dining room and relax after in front of the fire with a mug of coffee.

We loved our stay!
We enjoyed our stay, the farm is beautiful, we will definitely be booking this property again over the summer. The owner was extremely nice and very quick at responding.
Excellent place to stay
This is an excellent place to stay with a large group. We were a group of 15 and we each got a bed. The rustic nature of the place (built in 1861) is perfect for City folks to experience.
Definitely going back again.
A wonderful experience
Enough country to satisfy the 'farm' and enough luxuries to satisfy the 'house', this truly is a wonderful farmhouse experience for a family to enjoy. We had an anniversary bbq up at George's place and it was a perfect getaway. Thanks George for arranging a wonderful stay.
Delightful property and charmed historic farm house
13 of us - a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary, thier three kids, spouses, and 6 grandchildren stayed for 5 amazing days. George was a pleasure to interact with, the property is gorgeous, amenities aplenty, and the house itself perfect for our large group to be both together and in smaller units when needed.
Perfect August retreat
Another idyllic stay, George. Thank you.
