As the setting off point for our two week holiday we couldnt have stopped at a more perfect place. Arriving just as it was getting dusky, the house which is set back from the road up a slight slope looks spectacular, big, but inviting with warm little candle lamps glowing in each window. Mike & Nancy came out to greet us & offered help with the cases which was very welcome. The house is peaceful & makes you feel settled & at ease instantly. The "public" space is very civilised & the DVD player in the room with the offer to use the library of discs was a nice touch (although we didnt avail ourselves, I can imagine that there would be times when it would be a welcome diversion!) We stayed in the Garden Room which was just perfect for relaxing & slumbering. The bed was massive (certainly for us!) & comfortable enough for my insomina to take a bit of a pounding & giving me the longest sleep I have had in a good few years! The bedding is luscious & people who love quilting would have given the place 11/10 just on that basis alone! Breakfasts - home cooked & three courses (!) on both mornings were interesting, nutirious & set us up til late into the afternoon. Nancy is a wonderful baker with the lightest touch - her cherry scones would blow away in a the smallest of breezes ;0) Advice & help about where to eat was forthcoming & spot on - greatly appreciated. I cant finish this without mentioning the grounds around the house, if you love nature sitting out on the verandah in a chair quietly observing the activity by the bird feeders is a treat in itself & not to be missed..
The final accolades must go to Mike this morning when we found ourselves locked out of our hire car - he stepped up to the plate, made the call, reassured us & handled it all with good grace. We would commend Maple Leaf to anyone, who seeks sanctuary, calm & excellent hospitality in the Woodstock area. Go! Enjoy!!
