Lazy late summer farm days at the pool with adventure nearby
(NB: for mutually beneficial reasons we stayed at George's other farm - vrbo:188908.) Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed a two week holiday at George's charming farm property. The property is classy, comfortable and private. We hosted many day and overnight guests in the countless bedrooms with quality linens. We balanced lazy days at the pool with a beach day at Wasaga; Blue Mountain Village for a gondola ride and ice cream; the Beaver River for a paddle (canoe rented from Free Spirit), and Kolapore for caving (splurged on a guide from Free Spirit). The neighbouring working farms and passing Mennonite horse-drawn carriages add to the authentic experience. The house has clearly been lovingly restored and thoughtfully maintained by involved owners who care and only the most delicate of guests would note the idiosyncracies of a Pre-Confederation (1861!) country home: be respectful of the plumbing; embrace the simple but well equipped country kitchen. George was attentive and responsive. And the recreational barn was a hit with both children and adults: We took our desert in the barn every night with all the doors open, the lights on, playing ping-pong (who knew?) and shooting hoops with eclectic tunes blaring. Purchased basic groceries in Dundalk and some great prepared meals and pies in Ravenna.
