Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time at Colenso Country Retreat. Annette is a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed being part of a large farm with all the wildlife and the most comfortable home. It was very dog friendly and our little girl just loved exploring the grounds of The Retreat. Thank you again Annette for making our stay just such a wonderful experience. PS if you love photography...the sunrises and sunsets are sublime.

Incredibly Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a very quiet, relaxing stay at Colenso Walker's Cottage. The Cottage is a great size and has everything you need, with a gorgeous view from the balcony. Perfect for a lazy weekend away of reading and watching sunsets!

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at the property. Both visits have been very peaceful amongst the Canola and Wheat fields. The house is always clean when we arrive and the owners are always abliging and friendly as they pass on the roadway. Just love it!
