Beautiful Country Charm

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent time at 12 Elm with family visiting from England. What a splendid time we had. This rental has everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable. There are a lot of little extras included. 12 Elm is so charming & warm with tasteful decorations. The owners were very understanding and accommodated our mobility needs without question. Perfet location close to all amenities. Plenty of free parking and lovely yard & gardens to enjoy. Hope to visit again soon. Thank you Linda & Al.

Charming character property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-night stay in this charming property. We visited Algonquin Provincial Park, Arrowhead Provincial Park and Lake of Bays - all of which were just a short journey away by car. 12 Elm was furnished very well and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and cosy. It was nice to meet Linda, who handled all the arrangements for our booking and our stay really well. We have many happy memories of our stay here and are so glad we chose this property!

Clean and charming century cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at 12 Elm and the home was as lovely as I remembered- clean, bright and full of charm and a short walking distance to shops, restaurants and Huntsville's Main Street. The owners were warm and welcoming; there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the cottage garden to greet us and Linda checked in shortly after our arrival to see that we had everything we needed. We hope to return next year and would definitely recommend this home to others.
