    The bed and pillows are comfortable. Joe (host) is friendly and helpful. Perfect for a stay to be foot passenger to ferries - about 15 minute walk. Nice pub about the same distance away. Continental breakfast in morning. Best tasting blackberry berries growing wild. We really enjoyed the stay.

    Second year that we’ve stayed here for several nights each year. This B&B is excellent value in a unique setting. Good location close to town, a marina, and the Swartz Bay ferry terminal. Very clean and comfortable rooms. The host Joe is excellent to deal with. We look forward to future stays at the Farm!

    A piece of tranquility

    My Mom and I stayed at this lovely place and were in awe!.....this was one of the highlights of her stay with me....we had such a beautiful room!!....awesome view and just so many more assets to this place, which we were unable to explore all, due to only staying for 1 day/night. So much beautiful energy to absorb at this BnB....Joe was such a wonderful and kind man who offered services during our stay...his dog Lulu had so much love to share : ) The main reason for our choosing this BnB was the closeness to the ferries and airport....and once we arrived, we then were more excited when we seen the room, as well as to find that there was an awesome restaurant, pretty much right next door!....for me, it felt nice not to have to travel into town for supper : ) I can't say enough about this place....and my Mom just loved it as well as I ..... Next time I will come back for no reason other than to spend more time to enjoy all the amenities this beautiful place has to offer....and to go back to the Stonehouse restaurant that Joe told us about!! Thanks again Joe and Lulu, Val and Helen : )

    Place was well kept and the host Joe was very friendly and helpful. The Stonehouse Pub down the street was great also, good menu and food was bomb. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend for anyone viewing this property!

    The owner was very friendly. We had problem getting into our room because the cleaning staff put a wrong key on our door. The exterior was a typical farmhouse but the room was newly renovated .
