We enjoyed a couple's getaway this past weekend because we wanted to get away before we started our family (twins due in February!).
Enjoyed great conversations with our host, Pam, tasted the wonderful breakfasts (including apple juice from her own apple trees & genuine Canadian maple syrup), stayed cozy by the wood stove...spent lots of time reading, crocheting and enjoying our last Christmas season as "just the two of us".
Lots of interesting history and stories about how the place came to be. A relaxing place to stay with some great restaurants to test out in nearby Selkirk. Especially Barney Gargles!
