Owner's Response: Hilda and family were very enjoyable guests! We were proud to be their hosts and that our place met or exceeded their needs. They had fun skiing almost every day in the very cold temperatures!!! They even enjoyed the fire pit with roasting marshmallows. We would be happy to have them again. Kent and Connie

Absolutely beautiful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Kent and Connie are so wonderful. They make you feel like you are home. They are kind, gracious, open, considerate and just fantastic hosts. The house is spacious and perfect for a family. Everything you could possibly need and more. The grounds are spectacular. We saw all sorts of birds in the morning and enjoyed the woods their property sits on. The firepit area is gorgeous and we felt right at home. They were full of knowledge and made us feel like family. We loved our time here and definitely hope to be able to stay again in the future. Fantastic experience. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. My kids loved the art studio and truly enjoyed the stories of kite boarding! You guys are remarkable.

Serene and peaceful, a true haven.

  • 5 of 5

Kent & Connie were gracious, friendly and attentive hosts. The property is beautiful and the 2 bdrm basement apartment is spacious, with a large bathroom, kitchen and living room. WiFi worked great. The kitchen was very well equipped with virtually any kitchen gadget you would need, in addition to ample pots, pans and dishes. During the second last week of my 74 night stay (was in between selling my house and closing on my new one) I became very ill and they checked up on me to ensure I was OK, offered to take me to the hospital if needed and picked up medication and anything else I needed. I would highly recommend Hemlock Springs Country Haven and intend to do so with all my friends. You are only 10-15 minutes to Barrie,. 5 minutes to Snow Valley Ski Resort, 30 minutes to Wasaga Beach and 45 minutes max to Collingwood.

Kent and Connie, thank you for everything.

Sincerely, Andrew
