"We had a delightful weekend staying at Totara Stables. Comfortable spacious room and indulgent breakfast."
"A beautiful colonial style house, lovingly restored and maintained inside and out, in a peaceful setting and run by friendly, welcoming hosts. Our visit there was like stepping back in time to a period of elegance and calm. The breakfast was wonderful, with a wide selection of fruits and cereals to choose from, and a cooked breakfast that set us up for the day. We too were surprised by John's collection of farm implements and other fascinating rural treasures, well worth seeing and hard for my husband to tear himself away from, especially the vintage cars! We very much enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it."
"A great place to spend a night - or a week. Very comfortable in all respects; fantastic breakfasts; and great hosts. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. John's "Red Barn Museum" was an unexpected treat. Without a doubt we will stay here again. Dan & Ann Rourke, Japan."
"Delightful place to stay. Beautiful house, great food & marvellous hospitality."
"The extra dimension of the personal museum makes it a special place together with the hospitality over and above the norm."
"John and Sharon were the consummate hosts during our visit in Oct 2004. Accommodations were spotless and tasteful, in a beautiful setting, enhanced by an invitation to inspect John's mechanical prowess as a restorer of antique farm equipment in the charming garage out back. Highly recommended."
