About Sam Campbell

*UPDATE* I recently "retired" from my career of 30 years to focus my attention to Cobblestone Farm Retreat and hosting guests. I am thrilled to be around the farm more to aid with our guest's experience. I've been hosting family & friends at my farm for many years and they all said I should look into opening it as a B&B. I've used VRBO in the past so I actually thought this might be a better route to go.

Sam Campbell purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Sam Campbell chose Cobourg

Cobourg is only an hour outside of Toronto but you feel like you're a world away. The small town atmosphere is so welcoming and there are so many sights to see. From antique shopping, to relaxing on the beach, to hiking in the forest there is something for everyone!

What makes this farmhouse unique

You will have a chance to completely unwind and get back to nature on this incredible country property. You might even get to see some local farmers working the land as they used to many years ago. You'll see young girls riding horseback and cyclists whipping by enjoying the fresh country air. The stars at night are something to be seen and how better to see them then by sitting by a bonfire roasting marshmallows or sipping some wine.

Spectacular, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Cobblestone Farm is breathtaking! From the beautiful century home with its updated kitchen and bath to the stunning property with its horses and rolling hills, this vacation home is a must! My family of four spent a week there July 15-22. We had 2 other families join us for the last 2 days and there was plenty of room for the 12 of us! Sam is an amazing host. She is very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed! We will definitely go back one day and would recommend this property to all our friends and family. Thank you Sam for making our vacation memorable!

Best family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you haven't yet discovered Northumberland County and specifically Cobblestone Farm, you need to. We enjoyed our stay so much that we're looking to come back again this winter to explore more.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Sam, we really enjoyed our stay. Lots of room for everybody to spread out, both inside and out. Nice walking trail through the south pasture by the way. Highly recommend.

So peaceful...

  • 5 of 5

...you don't realize how much you miss the sounds of nature and the fresh air, until you visit the country.

Cobblestone is a little oasis just 1.5 hours outside Toronto. We had a relaxing weekend, enjoying great conversation, food and spectacular views.

Thanks Sam. You are a great host!

Tracy and friends.

Lovely spot for a girls weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend at Cobblestone Farm. The farm house was very comfortable with separate beds for 6 of us (and there were more beds), beautiful common rooms, and two outdoor patios to enjoy the great weekend weather and the surrounding views of the countryside. The farm is close to both Cobourg and Port Hope so we enjoyed a bit of shopping as well. We had a very relaxing stay. I would definitely recommend it.

A glorious place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (seven adults, one infant) were fortunate to find Cobblestone Farm for a weekend away celebrating my father's birthday. Sam was a marvellous host, offering lots of information before our arrival – and recommendations for area amenities and attractions and a warm fire to greet us. We will certainly be looking to arrange future getaways here!
