Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family felt very privileged to spend a week in this wonderful home. Three generations, raging in age from 7 to 73, found lots to do, room to group together or find private spaces, and cook in the well stocked kitchen without getting in anyone's way. We all enjoyed the pool, tennis court, fire pit and many other amenities. The beds were comfortable, there were lots of linens, and the area is so quiet that on more than one morning we all slept in way past our normal wake up times. The house is beautiful without being stuffy and we all went home feeling very relaxed. As an extra bonus the owner is a dream to work with.

A beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about David and his house. It was incredibly spacious for our two families - and more than enough to do for our kids who ranged from 5 to 19. Our kids loved breaking out to the pool, ping pong, tennis, and yard - and I think I was happiest that there was enough room in the kitchen that we could cook together and all fit around the tables to eat and laugh together every night. The house is well kept, with plenty of space, and some great books and music to browse. Knowlton is a lovely town, lots of trails to explore on foot, bike and dirtbike, and we also enjoyed an easy drive to Montreal for more site-seeing.

Dave was attentive in helping us plan our vacation - and we all sent him our deepest gratitude our last night when we were sitting around the fire feeling appreciative of our vacation together!

Treat yourself and your family - you will come back relaxed and happy from this great experience.

Peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying here for our week vacation. The house is big enough for 2 families, the pool is comfortably heated and fenced in for safety, there is a tennis court and a little park for children to play. All this is on the property for you to enjoy. The best part is that it is very private with lots of landscaped land. Will definitely be back!

Best ever family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Every year, in late August, our family of twelve (three generations including six kids under nine) chooses a different VRBO property for one week of being together. All of them have been great, but this one was outstanding. A beautiful house and grounds with space for everyone to have downtime, or to hang out with a few people and play games or watch tv away from the rest of the family, or to be all together in the large welcoming kitchen. Indeed, the kitchen was the central gathering place, and there, with everything we needed, we cooked yummy meals, listened to music, enjoyed conversations and kept our eyes on the kids who spent every moment they could outdoors. The pool, tennis court and play area have never been so well used, I'm sure; as one of the adults said, "we really don't have to leave the property except to get groceries now and then - everything for a perfect vacation is right here!" While likely true, we did leave the property to take long walks, explore Knowlton and nearby towns, do a bit of fishing and enjoy the fields and hills and valleys of the beautiful Eastern Townships. A rainy day trip to Montreal for several people worked well, and we were able to welcome a few guests from Montreal who could easily make the trip for lunch.

Arranging to stay here was easy. Great information before our arrival, a house that was welcoming and ready for us when we got here from our various locations, and quick responses when we had a question or two all added to the pleasure we had at The Farm. We left with at least one child in tears because we had to go, but we promised that we'd be back. And we will be!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property as it was a great size to accommodate our family who were traveling from many places such as Germany, Chicago, Boston, Toronto and Montreal. This was a perfect central location for us all to come together to celebrate a 60th wedding anniversary. The ages ranged between 1 year old and 84 years old. Everyone loved the location, the house and the eastern townships. The facilities were clean and accommodated all of us. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return in the future. Thank you to everyone who made this special celebration the best ever>

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the farm house was our best vacation ever .All of the room were very spacious and beautifully decorated. Our family so enjoyed having our meals in the large country kitchen and many nights on the deck.We were in the pool every day and even tried our hand at tennis.Lake Brome is scenic and gorgeous.The town of Knowlton is close by with many shops and restaurants .We hope to return some day soon.My words fall short in descibing the peacefulness and beauty of the farm house.
