Reg was a wonderful host. I immediately felt at home at the farmhouse. The silence at the house is amazing. I highly recommend staying here.
A beautiful farmhouse in a very quiet spot. Reg was a great host. I wasn't expecting such good conversation during my first night using airbnb. If the rest of my hosts are that good during my trip to BC, I'll be in great hands! Definitely recommend!
Reg was a very friendly and accommodating host. He was fine with letting us check in late (around 11:00 pm), and even provided us with fresh fruits and eggs for breakfast. He was also very helpful, and gave some very helpful tips and places to check out during our stay.
The house was itself was amazing! We didn't get a chance to meet Marlene, but she did an awesome job decorating the place. It was exactly as described, a very quaint, old fashioned farm house.
Very accommodating to our last minute trip and changing schedule.
Would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the night sky and hospitality.
Ancestral home with a lot of potential and easy access to the entire region.
Great last minute breakfast for our early dive trip the next morning.
Thank you for the hospitality.
Reg and Marlene were great hosts! They were very accommodating, as my boyfriend and I arrived around 10:30pm after spending the day exploring Tobermory. Their farmhouse is easily accessible and provides a great base from which to explore the Bruce Peninsula. Marlene made a great breakfast for us for a small donation. Reg provided some great tips on what to explore in the area. Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. Overall, we would highly recommend their farmhouse to anyone looking for a quiet, country experience with easy access to the Bruce Peninsula and Sauble Beach area.
We are lucky finding Quaint Canadian Farmhouse available for our last minute changed schedule. We are even luckier meeting such a wonderful host like Reg. His compassion for the land and knowledge of Bruce Peninsula is such an inspiration and great help for our one-day exploration of the area. We also walked around his farm with his guidance and enjoyed the story of this museum-like old farmhouse.
Although facilities are aged, everything is clean and works properly. The bed is so comfortable that my friend slept in.
The five of us went to Bruce Peninsula for a long weekend and stayed at Reg and Marlene's for a night. We missed Marlene during our visit, but Reg was very welcoming, accommodating, and informative. We arrived earlier than the check-in time and needed to put our food in the fridge before heading up to Tobermory. Reg had a scheduled activity at that time but he made time to meet us, loaded our food to his car, and carried all the food back to the farm for us so we could go straight to Tobermory. He gave us all kinds of information- restaurants, good sightseeing spots, things to do on raining days like the day we visited. It was pouring and cold when we got back to the farmhouse at night, but Reg lighted up the fireplace so it was really warm and comfortable inside. The farmhouse looks exactly like in the pictures- old but very clean and well maintained. Marlene and Reg prepared everything that guests need from tableware to towels and shampoo to a coffee machine (which I found really handy in the next morning). Overall, this is a place that I would recommend to anyone who wants a good experience staying at a farmhouse. And I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay at a place with lovely hosts!
