Hemlock Springs
Everything was as advertised. Great location, very nice outdoor patio and eating area. Backyard was wooded and private. Indoors was comfy and had everything you need. Connie & Kent even had coffee, tea, sugars, spices, all cooking and BBQ cutlery, towels, extra blankets... I could go on and on. The Art Sudio out back was lovely. I cannot say one bad thing. Everything was perfect :) Although we do not go up that way often, if ever we did we would for sure stay there again. It had everything you needed and more. They even had a stereo system hooked up outside so you could listen to music as you ate or relaxed in the big comfy chairs. Location is about 10 minutes south of Barrie & 25 minutes to Wasaga Beach or Collingwood. The apartment is well priced for what you get. I would highly recommend it. Thanks Connie and Kent for a wonderful weekend.

Great stay near Barrie!
Kent and Connie are two of the most interesting and active people I've met, and this is reflected in their wonderful home. From the outside gazebo and fire pit, to the nicely finished basement, all the amenities are provided and all in perfect condition. The kitchen is fully stocked to prepare whatever meal you may choose, and the laundry is similarly well equipped with a large-capacity washer and dryer. The TV is a fine flat screen with cable and HDMI inputs so you can use your Firestick and or Chromecast to stream whatever you'd like. The beds are large and comfortable, and four bedrooms themselves are spacious. The living area is very commodious and comfortable for relaxing. The large custom shower makes for a great wake up every morning, or afternoon as the case may be. The location in the countryside outside Barrie, just down the road from a ski resort, is perfect for exploring everything from Algonquin Park to the north and east or Wasaga and Collingdale to the north and west without spending all day driving. Highest recommendation and a definite returner.

Always a great value
Enjoyed a dinner one night with the host and hostess. This 2 bed room basement apartment is perfect. I’ve stayed twice now ( both 30 days plus) I always feel at home. It’s huge. Just a reminder, it’s a basement and you hear the activity from upstairs, also be mindful, they work And the host gets up at 5 am. One night my girlfriend got sick and we were showering at like 1 am. The host could hear the water running, obviously it was keeping him awake so heccame down to check on us. Remember they share the laundry Room, I always feel very private and at home. They ask you to park to the side. At the small price for such a huge space , the kitchen is fully stocked plus. Love being there. Can not wait to get back.

Very Clean and Perfect Size
Kent was very easy to work with and flexible on check in and out based on our awkward fishing schedule. Was somewhat hesitant that it was their basement and not a full house, but we could not have asked for a better stay and location to Barrie. Thank you!
