    October 19, 2019, Guestbook: "Ahhhh...a peace filled exhale. Fresh air, sunshine, a color pallet of fall foliage. [Harlem] Stonegate is heavens doorstep! The home and surrounding property are just lovely. Our every comfort was anticipated and met! Alicia and David made us so welcome and we loved every moment of our stay. Delicious food, wholesome and healthy -- a bed that was like sleeping on a cloud! Can't wait to come back in the Spring."

    Amen & Dinesh, ON (Thursday, 19 September 2019 22:39)

    September 15, 2019, Google Review: "The hosts make sure you have everything you need for the length of your trip. Even though their website mentions that they need a 24 hr notice for a dinner request but they were gracious enough to do so right after we checked in because we were too tired to go out for dinner. Both dinner and breakfast were 5 star restaurant worthy. The property itself is an experience on its own. The hosts gave us a tour of their garden, barn and yoga/zen studio that was built amidst complete wilderness and was definitely something that we had never witnessed before. The b&b is truly a well kept secret and its a must visit if you seek relaxation of the mind and soul. Thank you David and Alicia, you guys were amazing."

Both Alicia and Davids' attention to detail and their ability to anticipate their guests' needs make this an enjoyable place to stay. Their hospitality included unexpected, personal touches of service and care. Their clean, beautiful place is set in a tranquil pastoral location with plenty of space to explore and wander. The breakfast was incredibly delicious! I would highly recommend this place. Thanks again!”

Nous avons pu profiter des talents de cuisinière de notre hôte, et de leurs produits de proximité. Parenthèse délicate dans notre voyage."

    Richard & Kerri-Ann, ON, Canada (Monday, 01 July 2019 23:35)

    A well-situated property, stellar cuisine and hosts that exceeded our expectations time and time again, made for an absolutely unforgettable experience. The expansive farm with its numerous private oases and activities provided the perfect backdrop for a weekend of wellness. But let's talk about the food; breakfast was consistently exceptional and done to accommodate even the most restrictive of diets. Do yourself a favour and have Alicia prepare you one of her ultra gourmet quality multi-course dinners, your taste buds will thank you! In a nutshell, Harlem Stonegate will satisfy even the most discerning of critics, book your stay and prepare to be amazed.

    10/10! The pursuit of excellence is so very apparent; delivered with smiles, open hearts and warmth. There is beauty in you both and the property is magical! What else could you ask for? Oh, I know...fields of fireflies and a zip up hammock in a gazebo that begs for your nap!!! Thank you so much for being the icing on the cake with my visit to see my Grandbaby. It’s truly a Carpe Diem B&B!!

    It was with great hesitation when Bob got me to agree to a B&B as I like to have my own space and privacy. However, I am so glad I came as you people are excellent hosts and made our stay so enjoyable with wonderful conversations and excellent food. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours.
