The Word on the Farm

"I had a most *excellent* time at Maple Leaf Farm for the New Year's Retreat. The house is simultaneously large and cozy, the property is vast and beautiful, and the vibe is energizing and warm. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts. I look forward to returning very much, and already my sister and a couple of her friends are keeping an eye on your website for upcoming retreats. Many thanks."

"Spending NYE at Maple Leaf Farm was a meowgical treat. The fields, forests, and streams are breathtaking and just waiting for YOU to explore them ♥"

“We were incredibly lucky to meet Jordan and his wife Marta who were our hosts at Maple Leaf Farm. For this trip we decided to stay close to the park at their B&B. We ate gourmet food, relaxed in the sauna after a long, cold day of hiking and enjoyed their company. Thanks Jordan and Marta! Hope to see you both again on our next trip north!”
