The house was immaculate and the grounds are very well-maintained. There is definitely pride in ownership. The backyard oasis was the perfect setting for relaxing and catching up. We enjoyed the gazebo, chimnea, and outdoor kitchen. The house had everything we needed and offered enough space for the twelve of us. Even the sheets were soft and comfy. Just like being at home. Janice was very quick to answer any questions and to make sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay, including shampoos and body wash. David made sure the grounds were perfect and the pool was spotless. We visited three wineries, the Saltfx Spa, and had dinner at Gabriella's Italian Ristorante. It was a wonderful weekend. We would love to go back again and would recommend this place to anyone.

The house is well maintained and clean. We were welcomed with fresh sticky buns. The house has many different rooms to relax in (both outdoors and indoors) and plenty or room to sleep your family of any size. Our kids enjoyed the bunk beds. The house is on a large property in the woods so there's plenty of space for activities outdoors and is secluded. Our family had a great time there and we will definitely stay again if possible.

The accommodation was perfect! The location was convenient for us and our guests who stayed there were enthralled with the views! David and Janice were a delight to work with and made our stay very pleasant. The house is beautiful and even better than the listing can express. We loved watching bald eagles, playing croquet by the river, kayaking and a campfire at night with some-mores. Thank you both for making the weekend a delight.
