“ELEGANT RETREAT, FABULOUS HOSTS, ATTENTION TO DETAIL ... AN ABSOLUTE GEM!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2010

As an avid traveller, it is not often that a lodging experience compels me to contribute to public forums such as this however after spending two nights at Colonial Creekside, it would be very selfish of me not to spread the word.

For the purposes of this particular trip, my husband and I were looking forward to a relaxing long weekend getaway with the following criteria: within a 2 hour drive from 'the city', leisurely activities within the community, overall relaxation.

Don greeted us at the door with a warm welcome, provided us with plush slippers and took us on a tour through this thoughtfully and extensively renovated property which also included fascinating insights into how this Guest House came to be.

At every turn, there were quizzical and charming factoids to be learned from the Frank Lloyd Wright replica design windows and front hall tile, antiques and art pieces throughout the house, enclosed pool and stunning outdoor grounds. They all had their own little story, all are impressive and inspiring without being pretentious.

Our Suite (sweet) Cherry room was absolutely impeccable and immaculate. The furnishings and decor were elegant and very comfortable. A lovely welcome basket awaited us with some refreshments and goodies which we nibbled on throughout our stay. Plush robes were in the closets which is always a nice touch.

Individualized breakfast menus were given to us so that we may choose which items we wanted to have throughout our stay. Very generous selection and amount. A personalized basket with our breakfast choices were ready for us in the guest's lounge where we could also help ourselves to coffee and a variety of teas. Our private balcony overlooked the lovely grounds and was the perfect spot to enjoy our breakfast and watch cardinals racing back and fourth from tree to tree.

The pool facility was a bonus. We had not anticipated spending as much time as we did swimming however with the sound system on and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the greenery, it was so much fun.

We highly recommend this Guest House for couples, business and leisure travellers alike and it can be as private an experience as you wish.

This guest house reflects what heart and soul can can create and we felt right at home with Don and James, our very delightful and thoughtful hosts. We cannot wait to return.
