Our Fire Pit has been a BIG HIT this summer

Thanks to Ian Payne of Enviroscape and Dufferin Outdoor Maintenance our landscape design has taken a beautiful life of it's own and has inspired many guests in unique and special ways. Some have created interpretive art, writing and photography.

One couple chose the fire pit for an impromptu wedding!

Others simply enjoy the waves that run through the tall grasses and wild flowers from the warm summer breezes.

We look forward to enjoying night time bonfires right through until Thanksgiving, as we gaze above at the starlit night sky.

 

 

Thank-you to our wonderful guests...testimonials

As a B&B, Mountain Ash was new to hosting weddings and we were very grateful for their interest in trying out the venture. Many of our guests were very taken with the simple yet welcoming venue—even with the cold and rain that (unfortunately) accompanied our wedding day. Patricia shared our excitement for our wedding event. We met a few times to create a clear and fair contract as well as to clarify our somewhat unusual vision for the wedding weekend.

Patricia organized a crew to get her gardens in great shape and to help follow some of the details we set out together. She offered plentiful and delicious breakfasts for those staying on site and a number of little extras, including a lovely surprise for the bride—even driving to meet some important guests who were lost.

Patricia and her staff provided a lovely venue for the simple party we’d hoped for. Many thanks to the Mountain Ash Crew.

Good Afternoon Patty.Once again I would like to thank you on behalf of myself, Jeff and the other guys in the band for your help and hospitality over the past weekend. We really enjoyed your place and you are one great host. The accommodations and the food was really above expectations... the ride through Creemore back to get our truck was very nice of you tooJamey “The Chunk of Funk” Heidman The Muskoka Roads Band Parry Sound, Ontario

This place is beautiful and so relaxing. Great hospitality. Stayed in the Rosseau Suite. Gorgeous views. Will definitely be coming back. Thank you Patty you made us feel at home.

- Tasha and Wally, 27 July 2015

Thank you Patricia. We had a fabulous time. You are an absolute delight. We most appreciated the shuttle service to and from the event, putting our minds at ease the whole night. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable, the amenities were accessible and the breakfast was delicious. We would certainly recommend your B&B and would love to come back soon.

- Marni, from Toronto 22 July 2015

When my boyfriend told me we were going a bed and breakfast in Creemore, I had no idea what to expect. Mountain Ash Farm was better than anything I could have imagined. Patti (the owner) is the sweetest woman, took care of all the details and recommended local restaurants and outdoor activities to make our stay even more enjoyable!

On arrival, we were greeted with champagne. We settled into our room and came upstairs to find the coziest fire and then went to a nearby restaurant in Stayner (Osteria Vito)

The next day we really got to enjoy the amenities. We woke up to a yummy frittata breakfast, and then spent a couple of hours in the spa (hot tub, infrared sauna and steam shower). It was incredibly relaxing, and as soon as we were done, Patti had put together a charcuterie board for us to relax with before we got ready for dinner (at Chez Michel).

On our last day, Patti whipped up another amazing breakfast and then we spent the day exploring downtown Creemore (the brewery and the Creemore 100 mile general store)! It was an amazing weekend, and completely surpassed all my expectations.

I would highly recommend a visit to Mountain Ash Farm. As a city girl, this place is fun and relaxing while also offering a 'hotel-like' feel. We will definitely be going back as soon as we can.

My partner and I spent an August night here. From the moment you arrive you can sense a wonderful energy that enchants the farm.

Patti is a warm and welcoming hostess. She is attentive to detail and finishing touches. The accommodation was fantastic. We stayed in the Belmont Blue Suite, highly recommended. Impressive living area, everything is as described on the website.

We enjoyed taking in the beautiful views of the countryside from the balcony and star gazing from the hot tub!

Presentation and quality of food is fantastic. Patti sources a lot of the produce form the local region, which gives a complete experience of the area. Including the toiletries, which were all natural.

Great location. Everything is near. Perfect for anyone who needs a base to visit neighboring towns.

Thank you Patti and Ron for giving us a memorable experience. We are looking forward to our next visit
