My host Colette made me feel very welcome upon arriving at her beautiful home in the Beaver Valley. The private room on the lower level she led me to,had plenty of light, was very comfortable,and came with a shared bathroom which I had to myself as there were no other guests. The perennial garden beds and sculptures that surrounded the house created a space of natural and artistic beauty .
Colette was very welcoming to her beautiful home and her cooking delicious. She has a great set up providing very spacious room and separate guest living room. We would definitely highly recommend a stay with Colette.
Colette was very sweet! The house was very clean as expected. The breakfast was amazing. The house is located at a beautiful location in middle of farms.
We booked Colette's place last minute and she was kind enough to let us stay in another room so that we could have accommodation for the night. She was very quick in responding to our messages, gave us great tips on how to get to her place, and upon arrival she made us feel very welcome. The room and bathroom was extremely clean and we were provided with plenty of towels. We felt that we had enough privacy even though there were other guests in the house. We were also lucky enough to see the stars at night in Colette's property, it was very beautiful. Colette is a wonderful caring host and she also prepared us a delicious breakfast, scrambled egg, sausage, fruits and toast with jam. I would definitely stay here again!
Collette was very friendly and accommodating and flexible to help us with our needs. The room and bed was very comfortable and set up for our enjoyment. The bathroom is convenient and spacious.
Colette's home is a beautiful retreat in the Markdale area. Also, her art and sculptures were a welcome touch to make it very interesting. She was warm and welcoming and the room was lovely. There are two guest rooms and we were lucky that we were the only ones there, so had the whole area (sitting room, bathroom, bedroom). We also took advantage of the 'spa' experience - for $20 to use her hot tub, it was definitely worth it. Her breakfast the next morning was also delicious! Thanks for a warm welcome and a lovely stay Colette.
Colette's home is an awesome oasis just outside Markdale Ontario. The space that is rented is in the lower part of the home and is very private, spacious, clean and nicely decorated.
