What it’s like… Luxury at it’s best.

The Stone Coach House is located on a gorgeous green landscape that spans 45 acres. The stand-alone stone house is complete with a kitchen and bathroom and a great view. Two bedrooms are also available in the main house for more guests. This is a great location for anything from a girl’s weekend or weekend getaway, to cooking events and wildlife watching.

Co-owner Eva Sagur makes breakfasts for the lodgers. She provides choices for those who like a protein heavy breakfast or have a sweet tooth or require something in between. She will also confirm any dietary needs that are necessary. She makes breakfasts special with everything from crêpes and fruit to sausages, eggs and bacon. Dinner can also be provided upon request.

What makes this bed and breakfast so enchanting is the story behind it. Co-owner Harri Sagur, who is a retired architect built both houses and placed most of the stones himself. The stone house was originally built to be a workshop but was then converted into a place to stay and then into a bed and breakfast. The innovative design is fun and interesting. The stone house provides a calm atmosphere, a noticeable view and lovely surroundings, while the main house is warm and friendly.

Only five minutes from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, The Stone Coach House is a great choice for people travelling out for a race, for those who just like to relax or need a weekend away.
