Why Kent or Connie Flemming chose Springwater

Very unique, relaxing and environmentally protected all around us.

What makes this house unique

Centralized location to Tobermory, Midland, Wasaga Beach, and Lake Simcoe.

No less than 5 ski hills close by (2 min to 60), two casinos, ample shopping, fresh veggies and produce, and Wasaga Beach (largest freshwater beach in the world) 25 min away and also a haven to relax if that is what you want to do under the covered fire pit and relaxation area.

Owner's Response: Hilda and family were very enjoyable guests! We were proud to be their hosts and that our place met or exceeded their needs. They had fun skiing almost every day in the very cold temperatures!!! They even enjoyed the fire pit with roasting marshmallows. We would be happy to have them again. Kent and Connie

Serene and peaceful, a true haven.

  • 5 of 5

Kent & Connie were gracious, friendly and attentive hosts. The property is beautiful and the 2 bdrm basement apartment is spacious, with a large bathroom, kitchen and living room. WiFi worked great. The kitchen was very well equipped with virtually any kitchen gadget you would need, in addition to ample pots, pans and dishes. During the second last week of my 74 night stay (was in between selling my house and closing on my new one) I became very ill and they checked up on me to ensure I was OK, offered to take me to the hospital if needed and picked up medication and anything else I needed. I would highly recommend Hemlock Springs Country Haven and intend to do so with all my friends. You are only 10-15 minutes to Barrie,. 5 minutes to Snow Valley Ski Resort, 30 minutes to Wasaga Beach and 45 minutes max to Collingwood.

Kent and Connie, thank you for everything.

Sincerely, Andrew
