This place is absolutely gorgeous and so spacious. The photos do not to it justice. It was the perfect getaway for the night. We wish that we could have spent more time here. The layout is interesting and location is easy to get to from Toronto. We loved it and we enjoyed having the kitchen to make our own dinner.... More

My girlfriend and I decided to catch a concert in Lindsay, and thought it would be nice to make a mini-vacation of the weekend.

From the minute we arrived at the Brick Church, we were impressed by the warm and welcoming reception we received. Jennifer greeted us with iced tea and other options following a long drive.
