SANDIE: I don't even know where to start, every part of our stay was fantastic! The house is spectacular. Very cozy, warm and welcoming. There was more than enough space for 10 adults and our dog. Julie and her husband were great hosts. They we're easy to contact and very helpful. The price was extremely reasonable for everything. Honestly, we are already trying to find a date to go back!! Thank you again, Julie! January 2019 COTTAGES IN CANADA
DIANA: I booked The Old Mill Manor for a Christmas reunion for my family. Previously I have booked " extra" family members into a hotel but The Old Mill was SO much better. We had a our Christmas meal in the beautifully decorated dining room and the family members cooked their 'pot luck' contributions in the well equipped kitchen. They all slept well in their comfortable rooms. When I mentioned that I was writing a review I was told by one daughter, "write a wonderful recommendation on my behalf. Wonderful stay", and two other daughters booked the Mill for another event this summer. Yes they all loved The Mill. Thanks so much Julie. December 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
JASON: Julie is an amazing host that aims to please and she even hired a butler, as we were having a special event to great us and provide us with a smooth check In, that tops the best experience of hospitality I've ever had In my life. Even a 5 star Hotel has nothing on Julie with her Old Mill Mansion. If your looking for a retreat with 10-12 friends this is the place for you hands down. December 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
LYNN Great place for our family reunion over Thanksgiving long weekend. Plenty of room for 11 of us. Thoughtful hosts who catered our turkey dinner and set up rods for the kids to fish (my son caught one!). A bit cold for kayaking though the watercraft looked tempting. Nice bike ride to Carleton Place along fun and easy path, part of it freshly paved. Minor quibble might be that best access to hot tub is through master bedroom,
but this was not a major issue. Although we will not need so many bedrooms next year, we may be tempted to return nonetheless. Thanks Julie and Gary! October 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
GRAHAM: Enjoyed our stay very much. The home is beautiful, very peaceful setting, and Julie & Gary were great hosts - they do a great job of ensuring your stay is comfortable and private, also very responsive if you have questions or need anything. Our family had a memorable week at Old Mill Manor! Sep 18, 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
NEIL: We stayed at the Old Mill Manor the third week of August and thoroughly enjoyed everything the house had to offer. We were 2 families of 4 and 2 couples. The rooms were spacious and luxurious just like in the pictures. The 12 of us had ample places to be alone and at the same time plenty of spots to be together. At night we watched the shooting stars by the fire pit and movies in the living room. During the day we swam in the pool, soaked in the hot tub, kayaked and fished out front. We had our meals in the back by the pool, in the dining room and out front. Everyone took turns relaxing in the hammock too. The storage shed and garage were fully stocked with everything we could possibly want. The fridge out back was very convenient and it was nice to have all the pool toys and the badminton rackets. Gary and Julie thought of everything. We picked up our food at Costco which was not too far away. The kitchen had everything you could imagine and lots of storage space. We walked around Almonte, went for bike rides in Appleton, did some shopping in Carleton Place and Tanger Outlets. If you're wondering whether you should stay here, the answer is yes. Gary and Julie will take good care of you. We hope to go back one day. August 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
ELIZABETH: We enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Old Mill Manor. Exceptionally beautiful inside and out with great amenities for all the family. Gary and Julie were very attentive yet unobtrusive and quickly sorted out any minor issues. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to staying again next year.

SARAH: The Old Mill Manor was the ideal spot for a vacation with the outlaws of the family. There were plenty of rooms to accommodate 9 adults and a dog; the kayaks and canoe were supplied and a wonderful use for the access in front of the manor on Mississippi River. The saltwater pool and hot tub were used daily by all and enjoyed immensely. The two small towns nearby (5 minute drive) were close enough for groceries or eating out. There were plenty of different types of restaurants to choose from. Don't have enough great things to say about this location, property and owners.

AMANDA: My family (5 adults and 2 kids, ages 9 and 6), enjoyed a fabulous week of summertime fun at the Old Mill Manor. The house and grounds are beautiful, meticulously cared for, and large enough to accommodate a group larger than ours. Gary and Julie are warm and welcoming and really strive to ensure that their guests have a great experience. The kids were in and out of the gorgeous pool and hot tub all day, loved their cozy bedrooms, and had a great time playing with all of the games, toys, and puzzles that were made available for them. We also enjoyed badminton, fishing and paddling the river, and visiting the local restaurants, breweries, parks, and quaint shops (Baker Bob's!) in nearby Almonte and Carleton Place. There was really something for everyone here. Thanks for a week of wonderful family memories! July 2018 COTTAGES IN CANADA
AMALIE: We spent our Christmas at The Old Mill and we couldn't be happier! We were 7 adults and 2 children and the manor was perfect for us. The bedrooms were charming and spacious and the kitchen was great for making meals (fully equipped) with a large island to gather around. We had wonderful meals around the large dining table including the delicious Christmas turkey feast catered by the owners Julie and Gary. Every room was decorated for the Holidays including a Christmas tree in the living room, perfect for the kiddos gifts. We went out for a couple of walks and thoroughly enjoyed warming up in the outdoor hot tub afterwards! The owners are very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend The Old Mill Manor!
