  • We spent a wintery morning counting birds for the Christmas bird count and enjoyed the lovely country atmosphere. Then we warmed up in the onsite restaurant where friendly staff were serving up the excellent Sunday brunch.
  • Great for a half day of fun for the whole family. Super friendly staff and loads of seasonal events. A definite must do...
  • Our whole family did the sleigh rides here and it was so lovely, the village was even decorated for Christmas. I'm hoping to bring the kids back in the summer to wander the village.
  • Had our wedding here. The staff were so helpful. The grounds are amazing.
  • Great historic ranch...check out The Jade Saddle which is on display...built for Canada's 100th birthday...now over 50 years old
