"Lovely spot for a girls weekend!"
We had a wonderful girls weekend at Cobblestone Farm. The farm house was very comfortable with separate beds for 6 of us (and there were more beds), beautiful common rooms, and two outdoor patios to enjoy the great weekend weather and the surrounding views of the countryside. The farm is close to both Cobourg and Port Hope so we enjoyed a bit of shopping as well. We had a very relaxing stay. I would definitely recommend it.
"A glorious place to stay"
My family (seven adults, one infant) were fortunate to find Cobblestone Farm for a weekend away celebrating my father's birthday. Sam was a marvellous host, offering lots of information before our arrival – and recommendations for area amenities and attractions and a warm fire to greet us. We will certainly be looking to arrange future getaways here!
Cobblestone Farm had everything we needed!
Our family (2 adults and 2 girls, ages 5 and 3) flew in from Vancouver and stayed at Cobblestone Farm for 10 days in August. We picked the location because it was central in Ontario relative to a range of friends and family. It proved to be everything we had hoped for and then some. First, the house, farm and surrounding area are beautiful. We had tons of space for the girls to play, along with the children of friends who came to visit. Second, the house gave us a lot of flexibility when it came to hosting. We had friends and family over to visit and for meals. Everyone was comfortable and enjoyed themselves. Third, the proximity to Cobourg was really handy ... we were able to grab groceries quickly and easily, or take the girls into town to the waterfront to play. Nothing was far. And finally, Sam the owner was great to deal with. All emails or phone calls in the run up to our trip were answered promptly. Any information we needed in order to feel "at home" was made available to us. We were even given emergency numbers to call if we couldn't reach her. In our experience, not all retreat owners are not as accommodating or generous with their time. We would highly recommend Cobblestone Farm, and we are grateful to Sam for her generosity in making it available to us. The girls are already asking when we can go back to "our farm."
Perfect getaway house
This was my third rental with Sam, and the farmhouse has never disappointed. I hosted a group of 5 ladies while we escape the hustle and bustle of the city and spend the weekend focussing on creative projects and good food. The beds and rooms were comfortable with several fluffy down duvets. There are so many spots to sit and relax throughout the house. The newly renovated mudroom/bathroom is a great continuation of Sam's great eye with modern/rustic farmhouse decor. We loved spending as much time outside in the warm afternoon sun. Sam is amazing to deal with: friendly, professional, accommodating. I plan to continue hosting weekends for as long as Sam is willing to have us!
Girls getaway at the perfect farmhouse
This was our second year at the Cobblestone Farm for our annual girls weekend. The farmhouse is beautifully decorated (feels like home!) and the beds are literally the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Adorable barn and outdoor space surrounding the farmhouse. Amazing spa only 15 minutes away! We were only 5 people this year but you could fit many more comfortably. We will be back and will recommend this farm to others!!
Fantastic, Quiet Get-Away Destination for Families
Cobblestone Farm is located just over an hour east of Toronto, 10 minutes from Cobourg, and 45 minutes from the wineries of Prince Edward County. Far enough away from it all to give you peace and quiet, but close enough to everything that you're not far from numerous things to do. The beautiful house is well maintained, clean, and well stocked. We had a scorching hot week, so we were glad it had A/C. The property is gorgeous, the furniture is comfortable, and everything worked great (TV, internet, BBQ, kitchen appliances, etc). We were a group of 4 adults, a child, and a small dog, but it could easily sleep double that amount. All in all, we had an excellent visit, and plan on returning again soon.
A Christmas Dream!
We needed a central spot to gather the family for Christmas. Everyone was delighted by Cobblestone Farm. There was plenty of everything...beds, sitting rooms, outdoors etc. Sam had done a superb job of decorating for Christmas and we were able to welcome family and friends with all the hospitality that we wished for. Not far off Highway 401 (8 minutes) it's tucked up in the rolling hills and easy to get to. My husband found the bed to be unbelievably comfortable and I found the kitchen had all the fundamentals and more to turn out some good meals...including the 30lb local turkey that was the centerpiece of our Christmas dinner. Thanks Sam!!
