My sister-in-law and I had a most relaxing stay at this beautifully appointed Victorian home. As the owner of a century property, I appreciated the time and effort that goes into the research and purchase of period light fixtures, furniture, glassware and decorating. The house is spotlessly clean and our room was extremely comfortable, including freshly ironed sheets on our beds!
Our hosts, Janet and Darrel, provided exceptional service and hospitality. It was delightful to have them both join us on the porch for a cup of tea and cookies after our arrival. Their pride in the town of Collingwood is evident in their participation with local groups, such as the horticultural and historical societies. In fact, a Victorian tea will be held at their home later in August. How fun!
Their recommendations for local eateries were insightful and accurate. We were particularly impressed when Darrel asked if our mother-in-law would like to join us for breakfast. It was a very thoughtful touch, as it gave us more time to enjoy her company. We were offered fresh fruit, home-baking and savoury eggs. Mom came with an appetite and ate every bite!
I plan to return soon with my husband so he can also enjoy the historical ambiance and stimulating conversation of our hosts.
