Growing up, I always enjoyed trips to my grandfather's farm. The smell of the country is revitalizing, the scenery heals the soul.
My husband and I have been together since 1989, and lived in Ontario our entire lives. We began with an apartment in London, a townhouse in Woodstock, then on to Waterdown, Burlington, and Aurora. No matter how much we loved every home we lived in, and the neighbourhoods our children grew up in, we always knew there was something missing. No matter our accomplishments, we were longing for something more real, more natural.
We were incredibly lucky to stumble upon this property through a friend, and from the first time we laid eyes on it, in the fall of 2016, we were hooked. The view alone was enough to capture our hearts. The rolling landscape of the Beaver Valley, highlighted by the escarpment and views of Georgian Bay are beyond breathtaking, and we are constantly pinching ourselves to ensure that this is not just a dream.
The property contains three residences, the main house where we, our two children, and our two doberman reside, the studio house, featuring Gotcha! Photo Studio, and the farm house, our wonderful little bed & breakfast, that will charm you, the instant you walk in the door.
Built in 1876, the farmhouse is now over 140 years old. It was built by the Curries, Dutch dairy farmers. The foundation of the home was constructed of rocks found on the property, and the floors in the family room & main floor bedroom, and the second floor, are made of the wood of trees cleared from the field. The addition of the large kitchen was undertaken in the fifties, with a another major renovation in 2002, undertaken by the previous owners. We have added our own flair to this charming little home, giving the interior a fresh and inviting makeover, our goal was to make it a relaxing retreat for our visitors. It is the perfect balance of historic charm and modern comfort.
We look forward to your stay.
