The house sits in front of a large pond. We have a floating dock that people love to take their morning coffee and sit still on the dock counting fish while enjoying their coffee. We are also with in 15 km of 2 golf Courses. (Pike Lake Golf Course and Mount Forest Golf Course) 10 minutes to Mount Forest to get a little shopping done.
We are Non smoking, but smoking is ok but keep your butts off our land, as we don't want to see them on the ground. We don't need grass fires or barn fire, so smoke in your RV.
Children are all welcome, but the property is not safe to let them roam as there is lots of water and horses for them to get hurt by.
Respect our land and keep it clean. We should only see your tire marks when you leave the area you stayed in.
If you would like to do something, ask and we may assist you.
No going into barns without someone with you.
The Access road is gravel. If you have a very large RV you may need to park in the front field which is open, so pull through is possible. This field does normally have horses in it, but they can be put in stalls for a night or two. Near the barn there is room to turn around and parking in barn yard area is also OK, but may need to move if other access is needed temporally but never at night and is not pull through. There is lots of room for wide turns. There is room near the house but smaller RVs can only fit. The roads/trails to the back of the property are narrow and small vehicles can get back there, but it would be your call after you walk the road. Trees will rub your RV, but the road condition is solid.
Anywhere near your trailer location selection. Depending on the location you would like to put your trailer/Rig there maybe no room for your tow vehicle. Parking on the property is not an issue.
Most of the time it's not an issue.
As we love to ride through the property with the horses, there are lots of trails to explorer. The pond is stocked but it's catch and release unless your cooking supper that night for all. But check with who ever is home about fishing first.
Thank You a whole lot for the time we spent with the Host. We enjoyed our stay and we are happy to have
made a new FRIEND.
Very welcoming guests .
Beautiful pond on a horse farm ... they allowed us to drive one of their ATVs and have us a tour of their property .
Took us to feed the horses .
Let us use their paddle boat on the pond.
This was a great spot and a very friendly host. From the time we arrived until we left our host was very friendly and the location was terrific. Nice walking trails to just sitting with a view of the pond was very relaxing. Hope we get the chance to go back. Thank you for a great spot.
Very accommodating host. Bob made sure everything was in order for us when we got there. With his help we got the paddle boat out on the lake. A beautiful location. 2nd time around, loved every minute here.
Excellent time here, very hospitable family. Very warm welcome in spite of social distancing. Helped us get set up in the best way possible. Beautiful property and animals. They shared lots of travel stories and life experiences. A true cowboy that rides horses.(not sure why people who ride HORSES are called COWboys). Will definitely return again!
We had the fortune of a repeat visit to TheButlers. The peace and quiet of this country property, the ability to walk on groomed trails that led to beautiful sites after every turn, and of course getting to sit around and chat with one of the best host we have come across.
If anyone is looking for a place to decompress, or meet new and interesting hosts then I cannot suggest this location enough. There are plenty of things to do in and around the area from wineries, breweries, golfing and dancing just to name a few and only minutes away from town in case there is anything you need.
When we left we felt like we were leaving as friends rather than just Host and Guest. A heartfelt thank you goes out to TheButlers for the special treat you provided. I hope Mac got extra oats for putting up with me.
The Butler's were very friendly and welcoming. They offered us multiple locations that we could Boondock. We enjoyed the trails and appreciate the time they took out of their day to let us visit the horses. We would go again with no hesitation.
