We had a very relaxing and romantic weekend getaway at the guest house. It is nicely decorated and well equipped (kitchen appliances -- everything but a cooking plate, parking lot in front of the house, towels in the bathroom, etc.) in a very calm area with some wineries and a national park worth visiting. Supermarkets are a short drive away. Communication with Donna was perfect: always available and happy to help. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Thank you for a lovely stay! The AirBnb was even better than described. Spacious for a couple and kitted with everything we needed for our getaway out of the city. I appreciated that it was very clean and so thoughtfully laid out. Thanks for the tips and highlights in the region!

This place is well worth the money! What a wonderful escape in wine country. Both Jennifer and her parents are kind and always willing to help enhance our stay. The first day we went to Farm Dog cycle which I would highly recommend. It is within walking distance and the wineries were great! We also visited the national park and took Jennifer's recommendation on places to eat-- she knows what she's talking about! Thanks again for a wonderful get a way! We hope to be back.

Really enjoyed our stay at the guest house for our first anniversary. The location is very peaceful and close to the beach and downtown Kingsville. Spent a day at Point Pelee which the host provided a parking pass for. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

This cozy, modern guest house is just sublime. Communication with our hosts was excellent. Everything was spotless, the kitchen was stocked with the needs of short term guests in mind and the extra snack were very much appreciated. Great location too - just minutes from Kingsville, in Essex county. You won't be disappointed.
