  • Stopped by the winery and sampled some of their offerings (cranberry and blueberry related). Loved their cranberry - blueberry wine that was very refreshing and not too sweet. Unfortunatly, was too la...  more »

  • We went on Family Day and it was way too packed to enjoy anything. Line ups out the door, not enough staff, no parking available, and the bathrooms were absolutely intolerable. It is not worth the dri...  more »

  • A great way to spend a winter day! A well maintained skating “trail” although I was disappointed with it being just a big circle. Besides that I loved the snowshoeing trails and the little shop with cute items and yummy treats! Very good value for the cost of a pass ! My family and friends make a yearly trip
  • Absolutely fantastic experience! Arrived earlier than 10 o’clock opening and were greeted with smiles at the ticket booth and the cutest lab, who welcomed all the guests I assure you. 🐶 When we arrived to the cranberry plunge we were welcomed by the owner and Danielle who got our suits and explained to us how to enter the water. It was amazing. I didn’t know what to expect so I prepared my tripod and camera but the owner gladly and willingly took photos of us on my camera and hers. Told us where to stand and just enjoyed our time. We were early so we had it all to ourselves but it slowly got busier. I recommend an early day to have an experience to yourself. After the plunge we undressed and went for our trail walk. One recommendation is to get more signs or “you are here” maps. We started down a trail but didn’t know where to go from there so turned back. We’re definitely coming back in the winter for skating!!
  • Cute and unique experience tasting cranberry wine. Super friendly staff. Great wine!
  • You can just park your car by roadside and have a glance of their roadside marsh / Farm whatever they call it. That is pretty much what they do in the name of tour and charge you 15$ pp plus tax. They have no clue of what needs a tour. Definitely not their roadside bush, rusted 1940s dodge and a turtle in their mud puddle. If there is going to be no harvest or even berries growing in July you should not be having tours and charging people for this. We were a family of 7 and imagine our frustration and feeling of being looted for this awful place. I feel pity for one more family that had come from Mexico.
  • Informative & very friendly place. I learned alot and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Went on a wagon ride, enjoyed wine tasting, watched the sorting process, purchased products in the store, took photos of the beautiful Autumn foilage... The tour was short but the guide was very informative & welcomed questions. Everyone was very friendly.
