Please see: majengo.org. I have 3 kids, and 5 grandkids...
Lynn Connell purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Lynn Connell chose Clearview
I fell madly in love with this property back in 2000; rickity and old, nothing worked, but the bones were there. It is huge, open, airy, and stunning, right on the banks of the Noisy River. I rented my house in Toronto, and moved up with the first snowfall in November, no head - the furnace, ducts and fireplace unusable. The water was silted in the well, had to carry buckets from the river. Slept on the floor with a heater, as we worked all that winter pulling down walls, adding a huge bank of north facing ceiling to floor windows, a massive skylight, re doing electricals, plumbing...it sparkles today. The River House next door came up for sale a few years later, right next door. Fully renovated now, with fabulous windows, cathedral ceilings, pine floors...steps from the river...both places are breath taking, awesome...
What makes this Cottage unique
Once, Dunedin's prime general store built back in 1840, both properties are right on the road...with ample parking. But inside, you feel as thought you are far away, private, quiet, facing and steps from the river....trees, clean air...open, bright, up until now it has been filled it with artists and great energy...pine floors, skylights, unique, original paintings, lots of space...looks small and normal from the outside, but inside, it makes you feel you are in Tuscany... Please contact owner re rates...my houses can be rented together or separately...the nightly, weekly or month prices vary depending on number of houses you need, and length of stay. plese call me at 416 951 6528.

Relaxing retreat steps from charming Creemore
A group of 8 of us (4 couples) looked for a place that would accommodate us...someplace easily accessible by all of us, and avoiding hwy 400 traffic. We settled on Creemore and found the lovely Dunedin Retreat. We stayed in the main house which easily accommodated all 8 of us. Each couple had their own private bedroom. The house itself is massive and open with many different seating areas. The guys enjoyed the ping pong table, while the ladies chatted in the living room or back deck. We prepared 2 full dinners at the house and loved the large round table to enjoy our food and wine. The property is located just a short drive from downtown Creemore (5 mins) which is also convenient and worth checking out. On top of everything, Lynn was really easy to connect with and we LOVED her art work which is displayed throughout her home. There was space to do morning yoga inside, with the patio door open, listening to the river as the sun poured in. We are already planning our next getaway and hope to return to Dunedin!
Bright, spacious, relaxing, well equipped!
We had a lovely time at the main house in Dunedin. It definitely felt like a retreat from the hussle and bustle of life. We all loved the accommodations. The house was so airy, bright and full of interesting things! The house was well equipped in the kitchen and the ping pong table was a fun activity for me and my son. The river in the back made sitting on the deck extra special. Would definitely go back! Only thing I would recommend would be a window a/c unit in the third bedroom upstairs.
Our family rented the main house for two winters, the property was conveniently located close to our ski club. We loved it. It provided us a lot of space for spreading ourselves around, two different seating areas, 4 bedrooms. The ping pong table was very popular. The place has great character and atmosphere. The fireplace is great.
