About Luke Follwell

Quintessence Farm has been home to me, my entire life. Over the years, the property has been upgraded to maintain its beauty. When needing a break from our busy life in Kingston, my family and I head to the farm for a little peace and quiet. Long soaks in the hot tub, cannon balls into the pool and a little chip and putt on the golf green. There are numerous amenities to keep everyone entertained. Q-Farm is truly our home away from home, and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Why Luke Follwell chose Tyendinaga

I have so many fond memories growing up on Quintessence Farm. Nights roasting marshmallows over the fire. Building sand castles at the playground. Basketball games in the drive way. Endless hours in the pool. These are just a few special amenities Q-Farm has to offer you and your family.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Quintessence farm is very private and well kept. It is an easy commute to Downtown Kingston (45 minutes) and Prince Edward County (15 minutes). My family and I enjoy the quiet, seclusion the farm has to offer. When needing a break from city life, we head straight to the farm!

Great old farm house for a girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 7 girls do a tour of Prince Edward County and used the farm house as our gathering spot. It was not right close to the wineries and shopping but close enough.

There was ample parking for our four cars. The farmhouse had lots of room and a big kitchen for gathering in. The dining room had very little light for eating at night but we added candles and it worked out fine.

Luke was very helpful and came right away to clean the hot tub as we felt it wasn't very clean at first.

Everything in the house was clean and very well organized including towels and robes for the hot tub. The beds were comfy. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook and serve with.

The only issues we had were the hot tub on arrival and there was a smell of mildew in the main floor bathroom off the kitchen. I think it was in the shower but we didn't use it.

I would recommend this place for a family or a big group. It also has a pool which we didn't use and has lots of games and stuff for kids including two high chairs.

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the farmhouse...(a girls baseball getaway weekend) and for the second time we were so happy with everything the house had to offer! Luke and Jen are great to communicate with and are always going the extra mile! Can't wait to come back again next year!

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend here for a friend's bachelorette party. The rooms were amazing, the house was spotless, lots of room for parking and the hot tub was a very nice bonus. Close enough to the County to go on a wine tour :) Would recommend it to anyone!
