Good location for visiting various sightseeing opportunities around Orillia. Was easy to find, Wain & Carol had lots of stories to tell about their travels.

Wain and Carol were very welcoming and we wish to thank them for accommodating us even though they were going to be away. We attended the Mariposa Folk Festival nearby and their place was very convenient. They have a busy life and eshausted us just watching them come and go. We wish to thank them both very much for the stay.
