This is a genuine farmhouse, well appointed, set in beautiful surroundings, with fun biking and hiking rail trails nearby. We used their bikes, which were fine. Obviously, bring your own bike helmets if you like to wear them. It only gets 4 stars because we were there on a beyo…

Response from Naomi:
Dear Annette, thank you so much for your informative feedback! We’ll turn heat on high on super cold days in future before guests arrive, as well as turning up the in-bedroom heaters, and we’ll be sure the basket of wood and kindling by the woodstove indoors is always full and dry! We’ll keep four bike helmets too on location ...and we’ll add extra seating for especially big groups; all great suggestions. Glad your family had a great Thanksgiving dinner and we are so glad to have hosted you all! Warmly Naomi and Brian.

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Naomi’s house. We had access to everything we needed and more. The house was clean, welcoming and the thoughtful touches made it even better.

We appreciate that this may have just been a "one-off", but our stay was less fairy tale and more disappointment. We were four friends, meeting for a couple of days from different parts of the country. The housekeeper was unable to clean the house after the previous guests, so w…

Response from Naomi:
Cory, Brian and I are so very sorry that this unacceptable situation took place. Indeed our housekeeper was unexpectedly unable to get to the cottage prepare for your stay and you did indeed encounter this very unfortunate situation. We offered to bring in a new housekeeper immediately to clean, we gave you a full refund immediately and we are also happy to comp you an additional weekend under proper conditions. Please let us know what else we can do to make up for this unacceptable unexpected issue. I will reach out to airbnb as well to see how we can make this up to you and your group. Again, our sincere apologies. - you should not have had to deal with a situation in which the housekeeper was unable to prepare and we are so very sorry your weekend was uncomfortable in this way. We will ensure that this does not happen again. Best Naomi and Brian

My kids really loved everything. Perfect spot to let the kids run and enjoy yourself. The outside patio was my favorite place, as well as the fire pit. Although we had a few questions here and there, Naomi really went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we are enjoyi…
