    Maison Maitland Villas - A relaxing get-away stay.
    Spent a relaxing weekend at the newly built Maison Maitland Villas. A weekend felt like we were gone for a week - it was so comfortable where our every need was taken care of. Breakfast croissants, local jams, specialized teas by @PluckTeas developed for Maison Maitland, specialized soaps, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds with ensuite bathrooms. Maison Maitland is beautifully landscaped with scenic views of the St. Lawrence. Definitely a nice get-away for friends & family to explore the 1000 Islands area & Brockville. Will come again soon!!
    We really appreciate your kind words...thank you for sharing your story. So glad you enjoyed your time with us.

    Love to cook? This is the class to take!!
    French cooking course, she does other themes too. Old farm house was an inspired place to learn. Kitchen setup was excellent with first rate tools. Food preparation was fun and I learned a lot. And we were 8 in class, a perfect size to learn and ask lots of questions. The finale of course was eating! The chef had 2 wine pairings. And it was awesome!
    Thanks so much for sharing your MM story and great photos!

    Maison Maitland is definitely worth visiting. You won't regret it.
    My girls and I just spent an amazing weekend at Maison Maitland. Cynthia was a gracious, welcoming and knowledgeable host. Her attention to detail in every aspect of our stay was very evident. Cynthia reserved the Chardonnay Villa for our use and it was so well appointed and comfortable. We felt relaxed in this welcoming environment. It exceeded our expectations and the Bonjour Dinner of Chicken Marbella was mouthwatering delicious. We are all so happy we chose that meal. Our French Cooking Class was fabulous. Cynthia shared many great cooking tips with us and made this exceptional experience so much fun. My daughter is GF and DF and Cynthia went out of her way to ensure she had the proper ingredients available so my daughter could prepare a similar meal. As mentioned, Cynthia's attention to detail is impeccable and very much appreciated. The food we prepared was so delicious and relatively easy to put together. The recipes will definitely be used for future entertaining. We would highly recommend this fantastic experience and hope to go there again. Thank you Cynthia for making this a weekend the girls and I will never forget.
    Thanks for the kind words Arlene. We loved hosting you all.....so glad the weekend will be memorable one for you and your girls.

    The kitchen is to die for!
    I discovered Maison Maitland reading an article in EDIBLE OTTAWA. It’s only an hour easy drive from downtown Ottawa. We drove from Chelsea Québec and it was worth the trip. Cynthia was a wonderful and informative hostess. I am a total novice so learned a lot. My wife is an excellent well travelled chef and she also learned new tricks of the art of cooking. We prepared a multi course Mediterranean lunch. The ambience is charming. The kitchen is superbly appointed. And the bonus: we had leftovers from our self made lunch to take home to share with our family. Thanks for a great experience. Rick and Diane

    Eastern Ontario Hidden Treasure
    I was looking for a unique experience to share with my adult son and discovered this wonderful eastern Ontario treasure. We participated in a cooking class that exceeded all my expectations. Everything was organized to perfection. The setting, both interior and exterior, reflects the class and sophistication of a bygone era. Our menu was well planned and everything was ready for us to progress seamlessly through the series of menu items under Cynthia's expert guidance and watchful eye. Maison Maitland is a hidden treasure in our province. I look forward to returning and will encourage all my southwestern Ontario friends to head east to Maitland for a visit to Maison Maitland.

The other day my husband and I had an amazing time at Maison Maitland for a day of cooking and experiencing things the region has to offer. The time with Cynthia was exceptional and flew by as we laughed, learned and cooked incredibly tasty food. Cynthia took the time to explain the locally sourced foods in every recipe and where she found them. Her class provided us with recipes and techniques we have never known and will appreciate using in the future. Cynthia then took us around the area pointing out interesting sites, restaurants, the local micro distiller for tastings as well as a wonderful importer of Spanish food items. We cannot recommend this culinary adventure enough to express the enjoyment we got out of it.

It was a spur of the moment decision to book a villa (Chablis) and cooking class for my husband and I in July, and a last minute decision for family from Pennsylvania to join us. What a wonderful time was had at Maison Maitland! Cynthia was the consummate host in every aspect. She created a private Tuscan Farmhouse class for our foursome. The focus was on technique using fresh seasonal products. We loved that there were options along the way to suit personal taste and that she has a story with every product on offer. The curated menu was flavourful, and paired with local wines while we sat in the courtyard to enjoy our meal. Her 3 cheese stuffed zucchini is already a family favourite!

Cynthia’s kitchen and home are awesome, the class was organized and well timed. For 2 husbands who may have been a wee bit sceptical at first, they had a blast. My husband still talks of making ricotta gnocchi with fresh tomato basil sauce, the highlight for him. My sense is there are things to learn in each of her classes, for new to experienced cooks .

Cynthia was responsive and accommodating from our first point of contact to the end of our stay. We so enjoyed her personal touches and welcoming, relaxed approach. The care she has taken in designing the villas is evident, they are thoughtfully appointed and comfortable…right down to the dark (make up removal) and light face cloths! If you find yourself staying, the Brockville farmers market and downtown was fun to explore. Or simply relax in the garden with a beverage of choice, perhaps a picnic. All lovely, cannot wait to return. Thanks Cynthia for a memorable weekend!

Unbelievably wonderful day spent under Cynthia's tutelage in this amazing setting. Walked through Tuscany with the menu items selected, all prepared using the most delectable fresh ingredients and herbs. We learned proper techniques in a professional kitchen and were rewarded with the fruits of our labour, paired with lovely wines she selected.
You won't regret attending! Every detail was perfect.
