Yes, we can only accommodate 10 (max 8 adults) overnight and 15 between 6am and 11pm. Although we state that it sleeps 10, please consider; there are 4 bedrooms and one (not very comfortable) sofabed in the living room. Bedrooms are roomy enough for cribs and cots.

Including; One baby crib, a 3" thick 3"X5" folding child's mattress (bring sleeping bag). Two booster seats, one with tray. Baby/toddler pool (fill with warm water from pool shower), misc floatation (ask). Two strollers (not for off road) . Children's patio chairs & play table. Plenty of books and some toys.

Q. Your property looks like a great place to have a wedding. Would you consider this?
Although the property in itself is perfectly suitable. The location and neighbourhood is not. The property is at the end of a quiet family oriented neighbourhood. Hall road is winding, narrow and often strewn with kids, pets, joggers and cyclists. We simply can't have traffic coming and going.
Q. Are you close to the beach?
Yes a short 7 minute drive or 25-35 minute bike ride down a safe bike trail will take you to Lakeshore Drive, which of course has a number of popular beaches. However most families simply stay close to home and enjoy the large concrete pool, huge private pool deck, private tennis court, walking and biking trails, stocked fish pond .... on and on.
Q. Are you near shops?
A short drive takes you to all major stores. However, many people find it easier to walk through the park. Even the famed Farmer's Market (Wednesdays and Saturdays) is a short walk away. Canadian Super Store is also an easy walk.
Q. Can we bring our dog?
Unfortunately not. It upsets our old dog Roo.
Q. Can we ride your horses?
Unfortunately not. Other than one trained for dressage. The others are youngsters brought in as projects for re-sale and can be a bit unpredictable. However, for the young enthusiasts, please never hesitate to come by if we're out grooming or bathing one of them.
