This is indeed a lovely place to stay but it's been closed for a couple of years with no sign of change in the works. I have a business down the street and many of my clients came from great distances to stay there. Unfortunately, it's fallen into some disrepair - on the exterior, anyway.

We stayed here one night in late fall. Rented the Presidential Suite, although we learned by poking through the inn that all of the rooms are beautiful and well-appointed. Still, the Presidential Suite was such a treat for our first time here. French country in design, large, with a very comfortable bed, and immaculately clean. Paul (the innkeeper) has evidently...

We stayed here for one night. Very laid back. Liked the open kitchen where food and coffee/water etc. was available any time of day or night. Walked to downtown to shop and just a block from the Schoolhouse Theatre. Very clean.

We were delighted at the ambiance of this beautiful estate country inn. The pool,tennis court, gardens and walking trails were a wonderful surprise. This was the most elegant country inn that we have had the pleasure of staying at. The fresh baking at breakfast was delicious.

We had an absolutely awesome weekend at Evenhomle. From the uniques bedrooms, to the elegant dining room, to the spacious pool/bar room, everything was as close to perfect as you could ask. If you looking for a very unique experience in country hospitality, you really should visit Evenhome.

My wife and I stayed one night for a mini break in February. The grand old house is beautifully maintained with well appointed rooms that are private and very quiet. Paul (the innkeeper) was accommodating and relaxed with respect to our use of everything available in this inn. I highly recommend Evenholme for a getaway from Toronto or area.

We held a girls weekend at this spa a few weeks ago, and absolutely loved the place. Located a block from the main St. Jacob's retail area, 5 minutes to the Farmers Market and outlets, and a $20 cab ride to Waterloo/Laurier if you are so inclined, this property is beautiful. The house is gorgeously decorated, spaceous, relaxing, inviting and...

We held my daughter's wedding at the Evenholme Inn during the month of September. Because the family booked all 10 rooms, there was no additional facility fee. The rooms were beautiful. The staff simply could not have done more to make the weekend a success. WE had full use of all common rooms and outdoor spaces - which we used...

“All of the rooms are well-appointed. The Presidential Suite has a nice-sized sitting area and wing back chairs. We noted that one of the other rooms on the third floor has a sitting area as well. One of the rooms has its own balcony overlooking the rear yard - quite nice and private.”
