I found my inner peace
Came for a month to recharge re inspire and reinvent. Daily morning hikes up maple mountain, cold plunges in the clear waters of maple bay, beautiful sunrises and storm Watchung all in a warm and very private comfortable space perfect for soul searching and don't get me started on the bed - like a giant catchers mitt once in you never want to get out.

Magical Setting
My partner and I stayed at John's suite for an extended long weekend, and it was hard to leave! Our home has a spectacular ocean view, so our bar is high for views - and this one was as good as it gets! Our favourite part was having coffee/breakfast on those red chairs on the waterfront - then returning home from exploring the area to afternoon wine and snacks on the red chairs! I did some yoga on the deck while my partner went kayaking. We did a few local hikes - I highly recommend Stoney Hill Trail. If you have to pull yourself away from the view, that trail will not disappoint! The unit was very well equipped (better than most) and we could tell that everything about the place was designed with guests' comfort in mind. We would return in a heartbeat!

What a spot!
Amazing oceanside location, incredible view, very private & was bigger than it looks in the pics. What a lovely place to unwind. Hosts were available and made us feel completely at home.
