Fantastic view! We spent hours walking and sitting on the deck. We've never been here without seeing wildlife-beaver, moose, deer, weasel. Lots of room in the house to spread out! Johnston Sisters' weekend.

Fantastic place to stay and quite a nice view.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time on the balcony...they set this place down at just the right angle. The instructions to get in and use items were intuitive and although we didn't use them we really appreciated that the little things (Saran wrap, coffee, spices) that were provided.

Great place to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

My Dad and I had a great relaxing weekend at this property. They have a great deck that is positioned at just the right angle to enjoy the views. The pictures don't do the view justice.

Really appreciated the little things that they provide (Saran wrap, coffee, spices) so that you don't have to bring your own. They must have also taken the water into consideration from previous reviews as there was filtered water available for drinking. Great place.

Great house in a very quiet setting.

  • 4 of 5

Myself, husband and two children (ages 4 and 2) stayed here for three nights while attending a 40th Anniversary party for my parents in Sedgewick. It was about a 12 minute drive to Sedgewick so going back and forth was no problem. It is very rural but in a good way. Very quiet. The house has everything you need, linens, kitchen is very well stocked, internet, lots of TV channels (we were happy to see Treehouse for the kids), BBQ, lots of patio furniture. We basically just slept there but it would be very comfortable for someone wanting to get away from the city and relax or to visit family in the area. The only thing I would have wished for is a King size bed and the water is very brown but I guess that is farm living. There are two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, the basement is accessed from the garage so my husband slept downstairs with my daughter as I was not comfortable with her downstairs alone. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, it was clean and well maintained.

Sedgewick vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. With getting together annualy a family that can be from 12-16 at times we found this home accommodated us well. Plenty of space both indoors and out. In side there were areas where you could find some privacy outdoors the huge yard was great for lawn games. At night the open space and huge skies was a definite for star gazing. Sitting on the large deck everymorning with a coffee in hand taking in the view was certainly a highlight.

Dealing with the owners of the home was very easy and they were always available should we have questions.

Although there is not much in the area if you are a shopper we went to the local towns for groceries and took in a parade and bbq in Killam. We stumbled across a cute little tourist town Donalda browsed through some of the shops and took a nice hike. Just make sure you are aware most things were closed on Mon & Tuesday in Donalda.

If we had to choose one thing that was missing that would be a firepit to sit around in the evening. Other than that I would reccommend this home to families wishing for some quiet time away from the bustle & stress of everyday & city life.
