Just off the beaten path in the beautiful Renfrew countryside, this cozy getaway is warm, impeccably decorated and very comfortable. Wonderful gourmet breakfast, and we feel like we made some new friends.

Our hosts, Mary Helen and Don, could not have been kinder or more accommodating. Our bedrooms and our beds were cozy and very comfortable, the bathrooms pristine, the... More

I spent five days with the Deakins, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning. There was a wonderful selection of fresh and healthy food. The table also contained a few treats, such as the Deakin's own maple syrup. My room was comfortable, spacious and had a lovely view of the countryside. Mary Helen and Don are excellent hosts, knowledgeable about... More

We arrived late but it was not a problem for the Deakins. They went out of their way to help make sure our stay was trouble free. Breakfasts were lovely and our room, which was a downstairs suite, was perfect. Every morning she would offer to replace out towels and give us new ones. My husband and son were fishing... More

Amazing! Myself, husband and three boys have stayed at the Deakin's last summer and again this year for three nights and it was all lovely. The food, hosts, bed, and linens were all impeccable. We're not sure if the Deakin's usually take children but we made sure they were on their best behavior and Mary Helen treated them so nicely.... More

It's easy to see that the Deakins love their country environment and love to share it with guests! Accommodations exceptionally comfortable and clean. Breakfast of abundance, and easily "the meal of the day" with delicious options for every diet and preference. I stayed here 3 nights and visited camping family nearby during the day - best idea ever. Plenty of... More

I stayed 2 nights with my Mom. We were up for a wedding. The place was easy to find and we were welcomed (quietly) at the door even though we were much later than expected. The breakfasts were delicious and filling with homemade jams, selection of good breads, coffee and a breakfast entree. Great conversation with other guests around the... More
