About Luke Follwell

Quintessence Farm has been home to me, my entire life. Over the years, the property has been upgraded to maintain its beauty. When needing a break from our busy life in Kingston, my family and I head to the farm for a little peace and quiet. Long soaks in the hot tub, cannon balls into the pool and a little chip and put on the golf green - there's plenty of amenities to keep everyone entertained Q-Farm is truely our home away from home, and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Luke Follwell purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Luke Follwell chose Ontario

I have so many fond memories growing up on Quintessence Farm. Nights roasting marshmallows over the fire. Building sand castles at the playground. Basketball games in the drive way. Endless hours in the pool. These are just a few special amenities Q-Farm has to offer you and your family.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Quintessence farm is very private and well kept. It is an easy commute to Downtown Kingston (45 minutes) and Prince Edward County (15 minutes). My family and I enjoy the quiet, seclusion the farm has to offer. When needing a break from city life, we head straight to the farm!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the farmhouse. I have rented many places over the years and most of them are short on amenities. We found the farmhouse had everything that we needed to use during our stay. The pool was great for the kids. They were in it every day. We would stay at the farmhouse again for sure.

Relaxing fun filled weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

In our busy lives sometimes we don't always have the time to sit, relax and catch up with with our family, this year the opportunity arose and I got to do just that. My brother, sisters, and I along with our spouses were able to enjoy the Canada Day weekend together at Quintessence Farm. From games in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, chipping at the chipping green, camp fires and shuffle board this location has it all! The house and grounds are beautiful with all the amenities. The owners, Luke and Jenn, take pride in their property and ensure everything is ready and available upon your arrival and throughout your stay. I would highly recommend this location for a holiday or weekend getaway.

SIMPLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 12 stay and were all impressed upon entry into the Farmhouse. Everything you could imagine was provided and the hot tub and pool were a welcoming addition as we were in town for a ball tournament and after a long day at the fields we were able to ease our old bones! Luke was amazing during the whole experience, on the Saturday a hydro pole was knocked down in the area which in turn caused the water pump to switch off.....within minutes Luke arrived at the property and fixed the problem in no time. We highly recommend this property for your home away from home, the evening sunset by the pool side followed by a fire is the perfect way to end a day. Our team has already agreed that this will be the place to stay next year for our tournament.

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This property is not not only beautiful but it was perfect for us.

Conveniently located, it was large, clean, well-stocked and everything worked well.

The owners were available, via email, within minutes to answer our questions, even though they had already sent us the info we were asking for. They were kind about it too.

We enjoyed the pool and were able to sit outside until late. For a group of 12 women, this was perfection. Too bad we could only enjoy it for a weekend. We would definitely return.

Perfect house for larger groups

  • 5 of 5

We came with Team USA floorball to play the world championship in Bellevill, we had 6 players and 6 parents and we had a blast. Big common areas, large kitchen and laundry room. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you got. Luke was very helpful when one of the inflatable mattresses broke down and came over with a new one right away. Nice garden and very peaceful suronding!

I would recommend this property to anyone, I wish I had my ways to Canada again....

Family fun

  • 4 of 5

GREAT stay for our family reunion. Everyone with their own space but lots of room to be together. Everything was available and the property amenities were great. Only complaint is the water is very strong in mineral content and hard water which had a strong odour. That is just being picky though and it doesn't effect the stay. I would definitely return to this property and recommend to friends and family.
