We had the whole basement for us (rooms/ bathroom and restrooms). Everything was super clean and comfy, I just wish we could have stayed longer! Mary Helen and Don are the cutest couple ever,...

(The East Gate of the Park is about 60 minutes drive from the B&B). The hospitality of Mr and Mrs Deakin was excellent, and they took care to make sure we were... More

Everything was perfect. Best breakfast ever!! The authentic sugarbush tour is fabulous. A few minutes of listening to the wolves howling at midnight was really cool too. Mary Helen and Don made us feel right at home (no dishes tho :-). Looking forward to playing Homestead at Wolf Ridge golf course next time...

This is a very nice, comfortable bed and breakfast. The hosts are lovely, and helped us choose stair ant for dinner. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts are informative and friendly. We enjoyed our stay, and learned a lot about maple syrup.
