The host family are very kind and friendly. They love their buffaloes and explained how things work passionately. The new born calves were my son's favorite. The breakfast prepared...

Brett and Maryann are the most kind, helpful, and lovely couple and we couldn't have asked for better hosts. They made all of our friends and family feel so welcome and at-home. As far as the accommodations are concerned, the house is absolutely charming...

I loved how the breakfast was all farm obtained, sausages, eggs, jams, and rhubarb muffins. Would love next time to have some buffalo Mozzarella too. Room was beautiful and spacious, great view and comfortable bed. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Hello! Thanks for your wonderful review. We loved meeting both of you and hearing of your adventures; please keep us in mind next time you come through the Cowichan Valley and we will be sure to bring in some of the mozzarella di bufala. Hopefully by then there will be other water buffalo products to try! -Maryann

Such a beautiful farm house with gorgeous rooms and the most spectacular views! I loved staying here and wished we'd had longer so that we could have gone on some more walks. We were made very welcome by the family who kindly showed us around their farm and helped us with our dinner reservation. I highly recommend this lovely countryside...

Brett and Maryanne were wonderful hosts and what a property in a stunning location! Old world charm and a fully working farm, if you like rustic and the country experience this is for you! Great to use as a base to explore the Cowichan valley with wineries and wildlife all close at hand.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Farm. The house is delightful; the rooms spacious and very clean. The bed was wonderful! Our hosts taught us about life on a working dairy farm.....and introduced us to the beautiful water buffalo. Highly recommended.
