6 Star property and hosts
Best place for the larger groups. Well maintained property by great hosts. This property has everything required to make the most out of your trip. I will revisit for sure.
Fantastic place for a large family gathering
Our big family (8 adults, 4 teens, a toddler and an infant) had an awesome long weekend at Middelshire B&B. With the games room and the indoor pool, the kids were never bored, the kitchen and dining table were large enough for all of us at once, and there were more beds than people (even a toddler bed set up that my 2-yr-old loved)! Everyone was entertained by the fantasy decor and raved about the place. Can’t comment on the neighbourhood as we didn’t leave the house the whole weekend. Owners were away when we rented but left us in good hands and with thorough instructions and thoughtful provisions. I’m sure we’ll rent again!! Thank you, John and Adina!
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and that our alternate caretakers were able to meet your needs while we were away. We look forward to having your group here again in the future.
We have a large family (youngest 1 year old and oldest 90) and the B&B easily accommodated us. The kids loved exploring the games room and enjoying the pool. Adults enjoyed the various rooms to relax. We stayed just before Christmas and the Christmas decorations were great.
Our group of 24 were comfortable and fell in love with Middleshire. Will be back.
Great communication, all amenities were provided. He owners went above and beyond to make our weekend a huge success. Thank you!!!
Great home with lots to do!
This place is amazing, from the awesome suite bedrooms to the indoor pool and recreation room. Loved the huge dining room table where our entire group of 15 could sit around. The owners are very nice and extremely helpful.
In the countryside but within 1 hour of Ottawa/Gatineau, and 7 minutes from the lovely village of Merrickville, called Jewel of The Rideau, which is known for its charm, boutique shopping, many well attended events and its large numbers of artisans. There is a large set of locks (Rideau Canal) in the middle of the village.
There are several golf courses within 20-30 mins drive.
The town of Smiths Falls is 15 minutes NW and the town of Brockville is 30 minutes south.
In Brockville you can enjoy the Aquatarium, or do a 1000 Islands boat cruise.
About John Middelveen
We are a retired military couple and enjoy meeting new friends from all corners of the earth. Our skills are shared in the building of our home. One of us is more on the artistic side and the other more technical. Building the house for the most, by ourselves, we have learned to compromise with each other (sort of) to achieve something that we are both proud to share with our guests.
John Middelveen purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2011
Why John Middelveen chose Merrickville-Wolford
We're in a rural area but close to several major cities and we're close to the Rideau Canal system. We purchased this half built house and spent 2 years renovating/ completing it. It has been a learning experience also very fulfilling because it allowed us to grow and display our talents both in building and embellishing our home. We're so proud of our accomplishment that it gives us pleasure to share it with guests that we hope will become friends.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
This is a fairly large house that has a comfortable feel of home to it. There are many areas that allow you to conduct different activities at the same time without interfering with each other. The long front veranda is a wonderful place to sit and watch the groups of cyclist ride by in the summer while enjoying the peace of the countryside. There are also several garden areas on the property and advice from other gardeners is always welcome.
