            A Most Enjoyable Family Celebration!
            Photos didn't do justice to the remarkable adventure that awaited us at Ranch Manor on Wolfe Island. A mid-waypoint for our family members from Toronto and Ottawa to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary, Ranch Manor offered wonderful space and exotic atmosphere. We were blown away when we arrived. We particularly enjoyed its many outdoor amenities including the large pool in which the kids swam morning, noon and night. The extensive grounds allowed for day-time spike ball championship play, interesting cemetery hikes and ghost stories around the evening bonfire. Inside we enjoyed the old-time pianos, a games-room with full sized pool table and plenty of living/lounging space for family laughs and stories. The bedrooms…incredible and cozy! The location is also a short walk to the centre of town for eye-poppingly sized ice-cream cones, delicious cinnamon buns and the General/LCBO store for last minute needs. Our hosts Martha and "Cowboy" Dave were most welcoming and generous. We couldn't imagine a more perfect and enjoyable location for our family celebration. Thank you!

            One of the best vacation properties ever
            This was a great place to celebrate a surprise birthday party with family. It’s a fun mixture of quirky English country manor and Canadian island cottage. The house is fantastic, full of interesting design features and the property is clearly the product of many years of love and attention, whether it’s the huge front lawn (ideal for frisbee) or the pathways through a forest of lilac bushes to the “back 40” with hammock, firepit and space for a croquet game. Everything is clean and well-maintained. There are enough spaces across the property for the family to take timeouts from each other inbetween enjoying the modern kitchen, sunny spacious deck for morning breakfast or evening cocktails, super-comfy couches, fabulous swimmer’s pool, and classic after-dinner fire pit field. The owners are artists; they are helpful and the most hospitable. They live onsite in a separate building but are not intrusive. The space is a truly unique spot for a group of 4 couples (or more if you don’t mind sharing bathrooms) with a few extra fun sleeping spaces for anyone who enjoys something different (think turrets, zebras, antlers, ghosts and bar/pool table). Truly amazing to experience this unique property - did we mention the ferry? The horses? The pelican pond? The 5-minute walk into town to the bakery or pizza? - for a few days of fun and relaxation away from it all. Strongly recommended!

            Amazing Place with Amazing Hosts
            Very attentive and Helpful. We had a great time. This place is great for all ages, lots to explore and where to relax. House is big enough that we had 12 people get lost in it if they wanted quiet time. Kids loved the games room and the top floor viewing point. Over all a great holiday and we will most likely be back.

            5/5 Excellent

            Spacious, mansion w/lots of character
            This was a wonderful mansion, with very spacious rooms and loads of historic character and details. It could easily fit 10 people. Beyond the call of duty hosts who were super helpful, an early-19th century cemetery on the outskirts of the property, and a short 5 min. walk to town. Highly recommended. Only note is that the pool is not heated, which would be a great addition in the future.
