Enjoyed another relaxing stay in the cottage on Fairburn Farm. The morning parade of water buffalo walking past our fenced in yard never ceases to bring a thrill for the unique experience. I only regret that my grandchildren aren't there to share the fun. Although the big farmhouse is so comfortable and a remembrance of a time past, the cottage... More

We stayed but one night in mid-July 2014...and, of course, we wished we could've stayed much longer. I'm just echoing everyone else's reviews of the farmstay. The farm is beautiful and peaceful, Maryann and Brett are both great, rooms are simple, elegant, and comfortable (we stayed in Kinsol). We're so grateful for our one night there.

The picturesque home is situated on a farm with beautiful views in the Cowichan Valley (there's a reason people have weddings here), and you can sit out on the magnificent veranda and take it all in. We stayed here two nights in the Kinsol room (stately with very nice views - falling asleep to the sounds of the countryside is... More

We only stayed for 2 days and i regret that we did not stay longer. So quiet at night. Had a great sleep. They let you go see the water buffalo, who are very cute and like to be petted. The owners of this place are super nice and friendly. It was a good stay.

We stayed at the cottage for three nights recently. It is an incredible place to get away and relax. The place is beautiful and tranquil, and the cottage is very comfortable. The host family are very kind and friendly. They love their buffaloes and explained how things work passionately. The new born calves were my son's favorite. The breakfast prepared... More

We just recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at Fairburn and everything was absolutely wonderful. Brett and Maryann are the most kind, helpful, and lovely couple and we couldn't have asked for better hosts. They made all of our friends and family feel so welcome and at-home. As far as the accommodations are concerned, the house is absolutely charming... More

I loved how the breakfast was all farm obtained, sausages, eggs, jams, and rhubarb muffins. Would love next time to have some buffalo Mozzarella too. Room was beautiful and spacious, great view and comfortable bed. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Hello! Thanks for your wonderful review. We loved meeting both of you and hearing of your adventures; please keep us in mind next time you come through the Cowichan Valley and we will be sure to bring in some of the mozzarella di bufala. Hopefully by then there will be other water buffalo products to try! -Maryann More

Such a beautiful farm house with gorgeous rooms and the most spectacular views! I loved staying here and wished we'd had longer so that we could have gone on some more walks. We were made very welcome by the family who kindly showed us around their farm and helped us with our dinner reservation. I highly recommend this lovely countryside... More

Brett and Maryanne were wonderful hosts and what a property in a stunning location! Old world charm and a fully working farm, if you like rustic and the country experience this is for you! Great to use as a base to explore the Cowichan valley with wineries and wildlife all close at hand.
