An unassuming red letterbox indicates that you have arrived at the farm, and a wooded driveway takes you up to the homestead. "Nothing fancy" is a favourite expression of Bernie’s.....

.... I feel that I may have to differ, especially when applied to breakfast. Mexican frittatas with a multitude of fillings, sweet pink grapefruit, seven grain porridge and freshly baked breads are all on the menu, and while the oven is hot, delectable corn muffins are made. For later. Just in case you ever need food again. Jim and Bernie run their two simple Shaker style B&B rooms on a very relaxed basis, as they do a lot of touring on their bikes. If you time it right you may get to stay with them. Or stay in their holiday cottage next door, which you can make your own. Both homes overlook the farm. Traditional wooden barns house chickens, sheep and cows, all of whom roam freely over the 300 or so acres, and I encourage you to join them. Trails wriggle through the farm, the woodlands and down to the lake. The land here is stunning, and a real lesson in Canadian history and geology. 50-acre plots, the old pioneer settlements, are strewn over the glacial landscape, ancient, twisted, scraggly fruit trees and piles of rocks are the only standing reminders. Bears, mooses, coyotes and birds galore; woods, lakes, pasture and a hot tub under the stars. All the best of Canada.
